3.0 out of 5 stars A well-produced series, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is good to have a complete set of these. However, the ones written by Colin Dexter are far superior to the ones written for television.

Having said that the character of Morse as presented in the books is far more unpleasant than John Thaw's portrayal.

4.0 out of 5 stars One fo the better television detective series, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The attraction of Wycliffe apart from the scenery was the fact that he just gone on with the job without being on an ego trip or constantly at odds with those in authority. The constant banter among his supporting team was another positive feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Buy, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This combined set covering the first seven series was an affordable way to purchase them.

Troy with his gaffes and foibles was far more memorable than any of his successors.

Two of the people (the brothers Fell) who played a key role in the story were my great great uncles.

I found this cumbersome to use and the reports such as they are not as good as those provided with an older version.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile purchase, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the few television series that managed to maintain a fairly consistent format for almost twenty years despite several cast changes.

While some of the storylines usually two per episode were rather far-fetched they always remained believable.

l am looking forward to the Bradley Years which should provide the next few series at an affordable price - as buying them individually would be prohibitively expensive.
