Classic Crime With Style,

This review is from: The Mrs Bradley Mysteries [DVD]   (DVD)
This is the complete BBC Mrs Bradley Mysteries collection featuring both the pilot and the four episodes made and it's a treat!
First the casting. Although Diana Rigg does not necesarily meet the description of Mrs Bradley in the original Gladys Mitchell books, she makes a fabulous job of portraying the character. Through the medium of 'to the camera' asides you get Mrs Bradley's wit and considerbale worldly wisdom, through her interactions with George the chauffeur you see her mischeviousness. Neil Dudgeon as the afore mentioned George is phenominal, restrained and understated and yet in two episoded in particular terrifically emotionally valid pieces of acting. Other cast members are particularly good, but shout-outs must go to Ronan Vibert and Peter Davison.
The settings and costumes show the BBC's usual attention to detail.
If you are a fan of 'classic crime' then this series can not fail for you!
