5.0 out of 5 stars List of epiosodes for series 8, 28 Mar. 2016
I am writing this before the official release date so that I may list the episode titles in case anyone is interested, Series 8 originally comprised 16 episodes but only 9 remain they are as follows -: 'A Late Spring', 'Comin' Thro' the Rye', 'Not Qualified', 'Dorrity', 'The Honeypot', 'A Good Prospect', 'Responsibilities', 'A Question of Values' and 'The Burgess Ticket'.

In case anyone wonders why I have given 5 stars before the release date I saw the series originally and like all the other episodes this last series will I am sure be just as delightful now as it was when first broadcast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far better than I ever imagined, 28 Dec. 2015
Beautiful Book, as long as books such as this are published printed books will never be replaced by electronic versions! This book was bought for me as a Christmas present (I had requested it!) and it is far better than I ever imagined.
What surprised me is that the book is jam packed with photo's Illustrations and maps and all are in full colour. Every page has a least one photo and lot's of pages have several all with information about the image.
I was especially delighted with the section covering the demolished Severn railway bridge and it's machinery again all in full colour, one does not often see many pictures of this once magnificent structure!
As is always the case with books from this publisher it is a superb book, possibly their best to date. absolutely worth the money paid for it.
Thoroughly recommended for Railway or history enthusiasts.
(I was lucky to receive a signed copy from an Amazon seller.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent TV once you fiddle with the picture settings, 15 Dec. 2015
Excellent TV once you fiddle with the picture settings, at first I was a little disappointed because the picture was not very bright, I checked the settings and changed it to a brighter picture however after a short while it dimmed again and I discovered that a feature(?) that alters the image according to the lighting in the room was on by default. Once I turned this off the picture was perfect.
The sound quality is brilliant, I have now connected it up to my stereo system but there is tons of volume just using the TV's own system and speakers so not needed really.

The remote is a blessing too as unlike the ones with our Sony and Panasonic sets the buttons say what they do rather than little symbols only and the text on the remote is very clear and bold.

I am really please with this TV.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to fit and use and works great!, 15 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works brilliantly and simple to fit and use. I bought it to connect the sound of my new Samsung TV (UE40J5100) to my 20 year old Awia stereo system which only had RCA audio input sockets. It was simply a case of plugging the supplied optical cable from the box to the TV optical out socket then connecting the 2 RCA leads from the box to the stereo unit, the USB power lead (also supplied) was simply plugged in to the USB socket on the TV and switch the TV on for a quality surround sound!
If your TV does not have a USB socket you can simply just use any USB type mains adaptor.
Easy to fit and use, Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish, 4 Nov. 2015
This review is from: The Sweeney [DVD] (DVD)
It's an utter travesty to call this rubbish Sweeney, If I had to give marks out of a 100 for this I would give it 1, whatever possesses them to try to copy the original series (which was brilliant) is beyond me. It is just a lot of nonsense with the use of the F word in practically every sentence spoken!
Don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good yarn with a little truth thrown in., 3 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Enigma [DVD] (DVD)
Don't expect this to be much like what actually happened at Bletchley park, it is however a good yarn and quite exciting, the music is brilliant too.

5.0 out of 5 stars For information., 26 July 2015
Although this has not been released yet, I wanted to give some information about the titles. (I give 5 stars as I saw these back in the 1970's and they were good)
Many of the episodes are listed as missing so of the 5th series you get to see 6 of the 19 original episodes and 8 of the 26 in the 6th series whereas only 2 episodes of the original 26 are available of the 7th series. I have not seen the item yet but a imagine it will contain 16 episodes in total. (unless they have rediscovered any episodes recently)

It is a great shame that so many episodes of this fine TV programme have been lost, lets hope that one day some more episodes will be discovered in a dusty basement somewhere!

Edit
There were 191 episodes produced over 8 series.
Series 1 comprised 12 eps of which all 12 exist.
Series 2 comprised 40 eps only 10 exist
Series 3 comprised 26 eps only 18 exist
Series 4 comprised 26 eps only 3 exist
Series 5 comprised 19 eps only 6 exist
Series 6 comprised 26 eps only 8 exist
series 7 comprised 26 eps only 2 exist
Series 8 comprised 16 eps only 9 exist.

So out of a total of 191 episodes 78 episodes are known to exist

Series 1 - 4 are available now, Series 5,6,7 due to be released in Jan 2016, no word on the 8th series.
