5.0 out of 5 stars Dalziel & Pascoe, Series 1 DVD, 24 Nov 2010
This review is from: Dalziel & Pascoe - Series 1 [DVD] [1996] (DVD)
This was the start of a quite long-running and entertaining series. This first series I was able to buy when it first was issued as a three-part series of DVDs. The result is that I have all the story synopses in English and the episodes continue through the 90 min without a break. It appears now however that this, like all other series of these stories, have been sold to a Dutch company. I think these latter versions constitute a rather poor product. All the text descriptions are in Dutch, which is not likely to be of much use for most English-speaking viewers. Subtitles (in English) are set in the ON default position, so most English viewers, other than the hearing impaired, will want to turn them off before viewing. When the episodes were screened in two parts, the DVD does not run from Part 1 to Part 2 without stopping and starting again. It's good to have these available to view to order, but surely the BBC could have done better than this in marketing the series.
