Product Description

When the public unwrapping of an allegedly ancient Egyptian mummy turns out to reveal the fresh corpse of a contemporary gentleman, it is clear to Dr. Joseph Bell and Doyle that foul play is at hand. After a post mortem proves that the deceased was indeed the victim of a brutal murder, the doctor and his friend resolve to discover the killer. In their search they become acquainted with a Canadian art collector who appears to be equally keen to solve the riddle of the mummy. But can appearances be trusted?

This series of Murder Rooms films is BBC drama at its best and The Kingdom of Bones is my personal favourite, broadening the series out from Sherlock Holmes pastiche and telling an ingenious "story behind" the inspiration for The Lost World. How disappointing to find that the DVD picture quality is no better than that you'd get from a bog-standard VHS tape, with poor contrast, high levels of grain, and artefacting in almost every shot. Most disappointing of all - it's not even widescreen! Incredibly, the picture is 4x3 and not the 16x9 in which it was shown. This is a careless, bargain-basement treatment of a drama that deserves much better. Five stars for the content: two for the disc!

I got this item with some trepidation in view of an earlier reviewer's comments on the picture quality, but was pleasantly surprised when there didn't seem to be any significant difference in same between this entry and others in the series. I don't know the history of this series but bear in mind that if it originated on TV, it's original aspect ratio was undoubtedly 4x3. Had it been "converted" to a 16x9 ratio, this would likely have been accomplished by loping off the top and bottom of the picture, as is so frequently done elsewhere. No thanks, I'll take the 4x3 ratio please, and keep all the picture!

I thoroughly enjoyed this series on tv,so was delighted to find it on dvd.It is very well cast,with intriguing storylines,and just when you think you know who the villian is,you are proved wrong.A brilliant insight into the sherlock holmes character,full of victoriana.

Didn't enjoy the story that much, a bit boring in places. Also, need to watch it again to understand it. Have seen other Ian Richardson dvds in the series which were much better.
