Not as good as I remember it!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jemima Shore Investigates - The Complete Series [DVD]  (DVD)
Firstly the positive - The DVD is very reasonably priced and was delivered quickly by Amazon.
That's where it ends i'm afraid. I bought this because I remember it being shown on primetime tv when I was very young. It seemed very exciting at the time so when it became available to buy recently I decided to get it. I have to say that I have been left very dissapointed. The storylines are lame, the acting wooden and the show itself is very dated. Even a great actor like Tom Baker can't salvage a wafer thin plot. The first story "A splash of red" shows Jemima Shore being "slapped around" by a drunken rogue and quite happily taking it in her stride - not the sort of behaviour you'd expect from a hard nosed reporter. To sum up, I have been left very dissapointed with this relic of a show, it proves that some things are better left in the past.

Reading all the comments, i think people forget that this series was made nearly 32 years, which is a long time, to me it was a light hearted entertaining series, not to be taken seriously, i agree with some of the comments, Patricia Hodge was perfect for the role as Jemima Shore.
