In spite of some negative comments ("not up to Roy Marsden standards") I bought this box of DVDs since it was and still is offered at a very low price. I have watched almost all the older productions with said Roy Marsden - and have liked them very much in their own laid-back way. The two new productions are equally enjoyable, with a different, but also convincing, impersonation of Dalgliesh and a cast of excellent actors. The settings are sumptuous and highly atmospheric. Running time is a generous 350 minutes, roughly.
