a galiant attempt.,
This review is from: The Return Of The Saint - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
i'm somewhat in two minds as to whether it was a good idea to resurrect the "simon templar" character for this 70s update.
the locations are indeed better, but the scripts are rather average plus the series doesn't have the unique ingredients of the original.
ian ogilvy, despite being a good actor, doesn't quite have the charm or personality of roger moore to be 100% successful. he still does his best.
i was simply delighted to discover that old t.v hands like derren nesbitt and ian hendry were included in the impressive list of guest stars.
there are some reasonable episodes and this isn't the worst t.v series i've seen, but a classic it is not.
