5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Early 80's Cockney Drama
As a fan of shows from the 70s/80s i had thought about buying Hazell for a while, i was intrigued to hear that the show was co-written by former England Manager Terry Venables.

Actually he only co-wrote 2 of the 22 episodes. The others were written by established writers of the time including former Sweeney/Minder writers inc Tony Hoare, Trevor Preston and...

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Early 80's Cockney Drama, 20 Dec 2011
This review is from: Hazell - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
As a fan of shows from the 70s/80s i had thought about buying Hazell for a while, i was intrigued to hear that the show was co-written by former England Manager Terry Venables.

Actually he only co-wrote 2 of the 22 episodes. The others were written by established writers of the time including former Sweeney/Minder writers inc Tony Hoare, Trevor Preston and Richard Harris.

It is great seeing how London looked 30 years ago and it is good to spot famous actors including Michael Elphick, Larry Lamb, Ken Hutchinson and Dave King who all appear throughout the 2 series.

Nicholas Ball is terrific as private eye James Hazell and Roddy McMillan and Desmond McNamara are great as Choc Minty and Cousin Tel

Overall if you liked Minder you will love Hazell.

Despite having never seen Hazell before until buying it on DVD, I thought it was a great programme, and Nicholas Ball was superb as the programme's main character James Hazell. There was also some great acting from other people such as Roddy McMillan as "Choc" Minty and Desmond McNamara as Hazell's cousin (and sometime assistant) Tel. Very highly recommended indeed.

Only had the boxset a couple of weeks now and so far it is a series we are enjoying watching again after so many years. We have enjoyed watching 5 of the scheduled 22 episodes, and it is good to see this character again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent series, 8 Jan 2014
This review is from: Hazell - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
I got this as a Christmas present (after dropping a few hints). What a pleasure to watch these episodes again. Excellent storylines, decent acting thoughtful and quite gritty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hazell nut, 19 Jan 2012

This review is from: Hazell - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Great back to the end of the 70's a refreshing TV tec who doesn't always win and drives round in a flash motor - A sort of british Rockford, though not quite as good as Mr Garner few were! . Some good stories and Nicholas Ball takes his part really well and is backed by a great supporting cast. Well worth the investment!! production wise its ok but its annoying the each episode is broken up by the advert slots - no adverts just the end of part 1 screen followed by part 2 sure they could have rectified that if they had wanted to. Otherwise its excellent to watch

A great show and forerunner to shows such as Minder.
Nicholas Ball is great as the likeable,but slightly unlucky detective.
A musat buy if you like gritty drama/comedy.
