Having never seen the early episodes, I wondered how they'd compare to Series 4 and 5. They're just as good, and I really enjoyed discovering how Havers and Lynley began partnering for cases, learning more about their personal backgrounds. The two-part pilot episode kept up the suspense level throughout.
Each mystery is unique and just as absorbing, suspenseful, and puzzling as ever. If you haven't seen these earlier episodes, they are well worth the purchase. The current price is an absolute bargain.
