4.0 out of 5 stars Far-fetched, fun, escapism!
After The Professionals, there was Dempsey And Makepeace, another equally ridiculous, yet fun action-drama series. Dempsey And Makepeace began with this 2 hour 1984 feature-length edition where it shows Dempsey (Michael Brandon) transferred from New York to London to work for SI10, an undercover unit, for his own safety after he uncovered corupt activities within his own...

The one star is for the DVD set not the series. This DVD has cuts made to several episodes - I read that the edits were made for when the series was shown in the afternoon on digital tv and the edited prints were used for the DVD release The original series was excellent with great chemistry between the 2 stars, who later married, but the action is what really made the show stand out so why would you want to own a watered down version.

I loved watching Dempsey & Makepeace as a teenager on a Saturday night, really enjoyed watching them all again plenty of action and the chemistry between Glynis & Michael is so obvious. Also nice to see some old interviews included. Would have been more enjoyable in widescreen but skill very watchable.

This review is from: Dempsey & Makepeace: Complete [DVD] (DVD)
Lots of special features including comentries from Dempsy & Makepeace themselves (aka: Michael Brandon & Glynis Barber) all the episodes and that theme tune!!. Tv when tv cop shows were good, if not a little unrealistic. All those 1980s cars & fashions too, hehe!!

The eighties relived.....the fashion, hairstyles, cars...the chemistry between Barber and Brandon gave the series a romantic edge. Nice to know they are still together!

Excellent entertainment. The clash between the two of them is very amusing. Well worth watching for the action too. Although dated seems to have a timeless quality about it.

Great show. I loved when episodes didn't reach the 1 hour bar and it left you time to do other things. Plus I always had a soft spot in my heart for Makepeace.
