Just not convincing enough for me,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dalziel & Pascoe - Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I am a big fan of police dramas and have bought most of the popular series but somehow I felt this was rather too predictable. There were moments that let it down. All of these police dramas seem to have the public remembering every policeman's name perfectly, which is rather unrealistic, but the regular mentions of how to pronounce Dalziel, even to the point of having a group of rebellious and snotty students chanting it, stretched my credulity.
I guess Dalziel is quite a character, but I wouldn't like to meet him myself. Far too crass and loutish. No role model, that's for sure. I won't be buying any more of these, even though I can believe that they may improve.
One boxset that DID blow me away recently was "ACCUSED" series one and two. That is one of the best things I've seen in years. Several of the episodes were extremely memorable.Plus of course TRIAL AND RETRIBUTION.
