High quality mysteries from the golden age of crime writing,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Campion: The Complete Collection  [DVD] (DVD)
Although I haven't read the Campion books, I watched these DVDs at the same time as I was reading Julia Jones' excellent biography of Margery Allingham and found that knowing something about the writer's life and background enhanced my appreciation of the DVDs.
A first class cast is complemented by high production values and a strong sense of period, with the vintage cars occasionally stealing the limelight from the human actors.
The original programmes were made in 1989, so the format is in the now old-fashioned 4:3 ratio and, as another reviewer has mentioned, the sound quality is not quite up to modern standards.
Nevertheless, a set of high quality mysteries from the golden age of crime writing.
