A complete collection of comedy genius!,
This review is from: The Detectives : Complete Series 1-5 BBC Box Set (Exclusive to Amazon.co.uk) [DVD] (DVD)
Although I have bought each individual series of The Detectives as they have been released, I am buying this box set as well. Why? Because quite simply I think this is the best comedy to have been produced since the early 1990's.
It's good, clean fun and the comedy duo of Powell and Carrot was a stroke of casting genius. I am not surprised the Beeb saw the potential of the sketches on the Jasper Carrot show all those years ago and I have come to cherish each and every episode from the series 5 year run.
Each episode is funny in it's own right. There are no real duds which usually occur in a long running series and it's wonderful to see the characters develop as the series goes on.
This box set is a must for fans of all ages, buy it for your children or your Dad or Grandad - it doesn't matter!
Top class comedy of the highest degree. A+

Does this contain the two special episodes Thicker than Water and Go West Old Man, making a total of 31 Episodes?
