Product Description

Product Description

All nine series of the detective drama series starring John Nettles as unorthodox Jersey cop Detective Sergeant Jim Bergerac (John Nettles). Alcoholic and divorced father of a young daughter, Bergerac is a true maverick who prefers doing things his own way, and consequently doesn't always carry out his investigations the way his boss would like.

In an email from the distributor for this title, 2Entertain, I was assured that this box set of Bergerac is complete in two ways: it contains all the episodes, and every episode has been restored to its full running length. The unfortunate errors committed for the seasons 1 and 6 releases have been rectified for this box set and future distributions of those individual seasons also will have the full length episodes, not the shortened versions.

This series was a constant companion through the 1980s and was consistently enjoyable. It is one of the half a dozen crime related TV series from Britain which set a standard to match. It has stood the test of time and will entertain and audience today. Newcomers to Bergerac may find though that the concept for the series gets diluted towards the end, especially as some of the favourite regular characters appear less often (Sean Arnold's character Barney Crozier is particularly missed) but it's worth seeing the series through to the end with the 1991 Christmas special which which brings the series to a satisfying conclusion.

Highly recommended.

These episodes are supposed to be unedited but either I have a rogue set or later collections were padded out with the old edited series one (and possibly series 6) discs when supplies got short, I dont know,but some of my series one episodes are heavily cut down to 45 mins approx.(I havent got as far as series 6 yet to check)
The packaging gives the correct unedited run times but significantly there are no run times printed on the actual discs.It does say however 2006 on the discs and not 2009 which could be very telling. I would expect both dates to be printed if the corrections had been made to the 2009 release.
This box set is still good value,but anyone wanting the full unedited versions should check first.....Beware!

Reading other reviews here, what comes over strongly is the affection and regard in which the series Bergerac is held, and I would certainly endorse that, as it is wonderfully nostalgic and watchable over and over again, unlike lots of other series of the time. Having seen several episodes recently on various Freeview channels, I wasn't sure that the boxset was totally necessary, but I am very glad to have purchased it.

Seeing the full episodes it is easy to see just how hacked about the current TV-repeated versions are (the BBC can't even be bothered to show all episodes in a series based on current daytime showings on BBC2), and comparing the first ever episode with the chopped-down version that aired last week on TV it is clear that watching the restored DVD versions is way more enjoyable.

John Nettles really develops the role as the series developed, and even though the latter episodes lost their way and were occasionally quite weak, there is still enjoyment to be had from seeing how the whole series developed over its lifecycle. Particularly enjoyable is the changing character of Hungerford - played by the excellent Terence Alexander - from rather brusque, unpleasant ex-father-in-law in the opening series, to a rather more lovable, gentler soul as the series progressed.

All in all, recommended without reservation. Anyone else out there currently enduring the haphazard TV repeats as a way of enjoying the series and wondering whether the purchase is worth it - as I was - should simply go for it. Neatly packaged, restored running times, and including all episodes plus never-shown-again Christmas specials - a treat awaits.

Made from 1981-1991 this show is perhaps the best of its kind and it has dated well. John Nettles plays his definitive role with a performance that makes the show. Bergerac is something of a maverick cop, often playing fast and loose with the rules and being on the verge of being kicked off the force for insubordination. Of course this is the usual behaviour for cops in tv series, but as Bergerac works the mean streets of Jersey his behaviour adds interest to a show that could have been too predictable. As a recovering alcoholic he also has his demons, but the show never lets this element become too serious and the numerous recurring characters ensure the show has a cosy format.

Best of the main characters is Terence Alexander's Charlie Hungerford, Bergerac's ex-father-in-law who is a rich buffoon who is always involved in dodgy activities, usually innocently, and who can always provide Bergerac with the clues he needs to solve the cases. Best of the recurring small part characters is Phillipa Vale, which provided Liza Goddard with perhaps her best role as the charismatic jewel thief.

During the course of the series Bergerac went through several girlfriends, starting with Francine and ending with Danielle, although for most of the run Louise Jameson, also in her best tv role, had the role. The show does ultimately run out of steam, although the makers accept that when they amend the format with Bergerac leaving the force. And the dangers of presenting Jersey as the crime capital of the world are headed off with many of the later episodes taking part in France. I didn't enjoy that latter change and so I'm pleased the show didn't carry on for too long with the revised style, leaving this as a thoroughly enjoyable cop show.
