This review is from: Colditz - The Complete BBC Collection (with 5 Limited Edition Art Cards & Collector's Booklet) [DVD]  (DVD)
You know when you sit down and enjoy a good meal that smelt and tasted fabulous and left you feeling satisfied without feeling bloated? Colditz is the TV equivalent of that.
I remember the odd one from my childhood and when it came out on DVD, I couldn't resist. So many "gritty" dramas these days are all show and no substance, but Colditz harks back to the days of QUALITY (note capitals) drama.
Very little violence, no bad language and none of the other more modern things which seem to dominate nowadays. Instead, fine acting, mood and "hold your breath, edge of your seat" excitement.
As an aside, I also enjoy spotting actors who later went on to be famous for other roles. Great to see young versions of Dennis Waterman, Ronald Lacey, John Savident, Kenneth Griffith, Geoffrey Palmer to name but a few.
