4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Satisfying Drama 1 Mar 2008
'The Broker's Man' never really took off despite coming from the same stable as 'Midsomer Murders' and 'Ultimate Force' and yet is quite an effective and satisfying drama.
Kevin Whateley excels playing a more edgy and complicated character than he was allowed in 'Inspector Morse' and the set up provides some original drama.
It combines aspects of the detective genre and more human interest stories as Kevin's character of Jimmy Griffen verifies insurance claims and deals with problems in his own family life.
Not as cosy as Morse or as action packed as 'Ultimate Force' but this series has plenty of drama and excitement and is well worth owning or renting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely one for the collection 12 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
Kevin Whately fans will find this set enthralling and well up to the high standard we've come to enjoy from him. There is a good and strong supporting cast and many familiar faces making guest appearances. Story lines are intriguing with just the right amount of humour and the plots are well handled. Good direction and top-notch acting make these series immensely watchable.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Broker's Man 14 July 2010
Verified Purchase
I enjoy most of what Kevin Whately is in, and was interested to see him in a role quite different from his role as Lewis. I think he got a bad deal in this series! Didn't seem to be able to take a trick. Such is life.
I have just finished watching the entire Broker's Man series again after several years since I first watched it. I found that it was much more enjoyable the second time around. May be I was 'prepared' this time for the difference in the general thrust of the series. May be I'll watch it again in another two-and-a-half years and enjoy it even more!
