Don't miss this series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Edgar Wallace Mysteries, Vol. 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I am a fan of late fifties and early sixties TV crime series. In my collection are the early black and white episodes of The Saint with Roger Moore, Patrick McGoughan in Danger Man, and boxed sets of Man From Interpol and Gideon's Way.
I have to say that this set is every bit as good as any of those and if you are interested in this type of programme then this series is definitely for you.
Being the cautious type that I am I pre-ordered this first volume and received it the day after its release, but held off buying the second volume until I had checked it out for quality.
We have only watched the first three episodes so far, but it's enough to see that the storylines are great. We were both glued to our seats throughout and both the sound and B&W picture quality are great. There are a lot of familiar faces from 1960s television amongst the cast of characters some of which I know by name, some not. Harry H.Corbett (admittedly with a dodgy Scottish accent) appears in one episode, Wilfrid Brambell in the next plus there's Bernard Lee, Rita Webb and lots more to come.
Being cautious I bought only the first volume just to check how much I liked them before buying any more. I have now (after two days) ordered volume two for immediate delivery and have pre-ordered vols three and four for next month.
Please note however that all seven volumes are due to be released in one package in November 2012, I for one cannot wait that long.
