Wilde Alliance is a trip down memory lane, from the days when families sat together on a saturday night to watch the big film, or be collectively chilled by an armchair mystery. I remember this series as being a particular favourite in our house, and it was, understandably, a national ratings winner at the time. I tend to think of Rupert & Amy Wilde as following in the great traditions of Randall & Hopkirk and the excellent Thriller series created by Brian Clemens. If you can embrace the unavoidably dated material as part of it's charm and interest, and forgive some glaring holes in the plots,then you won't be side-tracked when engaging with the characters, who are extremely easy to like. John Stride and Julia Foster play a husband and wife team of would-be amateur sleuths. He is a crime writer by day and she is an illustrator, and they both have a tendency to get lured into investigating things. They are supposedly short of cash, although they live in a lovely appartment in the historic city of York and drive a sporty car. That's about as realistic as this ever gets. Their relationship is fun, witty, and really does feel authentic. This is down to the superb chemistry of the main leads, and their charisma pretty much carries them through any shortcomings of plot. Rupert Wilde is boyish and a bit spoilt, Amy is resourceful and pragmatic. As a sleuthing team they don't always get it right, but they are honest in intention and mainly optimistic. The banter works very well between the two without getting corny. Brian Clemens tried to create something similar with Stephen Rea & Gayle Hunnicut in his story 'K is for Killing (from the Thriller series) and the attempt was pretty cringeworthy and very stagey. The Wilde's manage to avoid this pitfall by force of personality.Read more ›

I had never seen this series before and thought it looked interesting. It IS interesting! The stories are quirky and hold one's attention and the whole series is immensely watchable and charming. One wonders why they can't make programmes like this today. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found the picture quality good and I felt it had a freshness to it, not dated (so many feel that they have to throw in that overused term for anything from the past, no matter how recent!) Highly recommended.

I remember watching these episodes and being blown away by how smart and stylish they all were. I didn't remember the really quite clever plots with sudden twists and turns that you just didn't expect !
Of course it has to be viewed through eyes that realise the production is 30-odd years old.
We laughed to see some quite, well, sexy, shots of John Stride's crotch and bottom .. he was obviously the dishy interest in the series, while Julia Foster, the charming sensible one with a true sense of humour.
The whole buying process for the set was very successful, from smart TR7, white with black roof, to checked shirts and lots of brown and cream cords and Ming Court with its middle class but slightly boho-chic style.
There is much to deride but rather than look for cracks in the plot, enjoy the bounce of each other relationship they had .. it comes across as very genuine and fun.
We were shocked (in a good way) to realise they had a pornographer living below them !!
Spot the high-life opening sequences, great fun !

Only quibble is that the episodes break where the ads would have been, which is a bit odd ... but it does give you a chance to enjoy the open/close theme tune.

I/we so enjoyed the lot, if you love the 70's enjoy rounded character portrayal and can turn a blind eye to a few glitches, buy and enjoy !

A nice easy going series from the 70's. Good lead characters with many well known faces guesting from that era. A long overdue production release. Pity they didn't do more of this franchise.
