4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Old Cop Show, 5 Sept. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gideon's Way - The Complete Series [1965] [DVD] (DVD)
This seven dvd set contains twenty six hour long episodes all made in glorious black and white from 1964. The series was filmed alongside the first episodes of the Saint starring Roger Moore, and based on the Gideon books written by Leslie Charteris or his nom de plume J.J. Marric. Script supervisor on the series was Harrry W. Junkin who also wrote on the Saint series
Starring John Gregson as commander George Gideon who had been in many British films including Genevieve and The Lavender Hill Mob.
The episodes contain many gripping plots and are full of familiar faces whose names you may not recall but remind us of the time when almost everyone watched t.v. and most people had a "did you see so and so last night" conversation at work the next day.

I love this set and it brings a smile to the face to see fire engines rushing to a fire with a firemen hanging out of the front window of the fire truck ringing the bell to warn traffic, and to see the old blue police boxes as in Dr. Who with the flashing blue light on top. There seemed to be a policeman on every street corner who ran to answer the phone.

Superb!

Good review, but it was not Leslie Charteris who wrote the books, but the incredibly prolific John Creasey.

Yep! Was gonna say that myself. JJ Marric = John Creasey, not Leslie Charteris. Checked to make absolutely sure here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Creasey :)
