Product Description

Product Description

Case Histories is a detective series set in contemporary Edinburgh, adapted from Kate Atkinson's best-selling novels and devised for television by Ashley Pharoah (creator of Life on Mars). Private investigator Jackson Brodie is played by Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter; The Patriot). A former soldier and policeman, Jackson's tough-guy exterior belies a deeply empathetic heart. He's unable to resist coming to the rescue and is a magnet for the bereaved, the lost and the dysfunctional. Intriguing, moving and funny, the character driven stories conjure up a richly imagined world in which Jackson Brodie attempts to bring resolution to the victims of unexplained mysteries and comfort to the survivors of personal tragedies. He is the ultimate survivor himself--a bruised optimist, compelled to help others.

Includes all episodes from series 1 and 2.

Not much more I can say about this, but if you like the Kate Atkinson books then you will like this even more. Great acting, plots, and haunting music. I only hope we get a further series.

CASE HISTORIES Series 1-2. This BBC-produced British mystery television series received its debut in 2011, was seen in the United States on PBS’s Masterpiece Mystery. The second series aired on BBC in 2013. It concerns Edinburgh-based private investigator Jackson Brodie, an emotionally-damaged former soldier and Edinburgh cop, who finds himself tracking lost cats, wayward spouses, and killers on the run. And he does a lot of running himself, partly to unwind from the stresses of his work, but mostly to escape the memories of his traumatic past. The police procedurals are based on the bestselling, award-winning novels by Kate Atkinson, (LIFE AFTER LIFE); the series was created for TV by Ashley Pharoah, (LIFE ON MARS), who moved it to Edinburgh, rather than Yorkshire, where Atkinson set it.

The former cop (Golden Globe and International Emmy nominee Jason Isaacs, HARRY POTTER, THE PATRIOT) is just trying to make a living. He has a hard time collecting his debts and paying his bills, but no shortage of clients, since he can't overlook a wrong or say no to a person in need. This character-driven drama also stars Amanda Abbington, (AGATHA CHRISTIE’S POIROT, SHERLOCK), as DC Louise Munroe, seemingly the last Edinburgh cop still talking to her former colleague—who has a bit of a soft spot for him; Zawe Ashton, (FRESH MEAT), as Deborah Arnold, his longsuffering assistant. Millie Innes plays his daughter Marlee; Kirsty Mitchell, ex-wife Josie, Natasha Little, (KIDNAP AND RANSOM), his lover and ex-lover, with whom he has a very fraught relationship, actress Julia Land. Further guest stars include Phil Davis, (VERA DRAKE) and Sylvia Simms, (ALICE’S RESTAURANT). Some of Brodie’s clients are parents looking for children; some children, looking for parents.

This is an extremely watchable drama, adapted from Kate Atkinson's books. I admit to being biased as i love most programmes/films that feature Edinburgh, but all the same these are quirky detective stories that will appeal to anyone who likes the crime genre. Occasionally Jason Isaacs gets his top off too, which is an added bonus for some!

How I wish that there could be more of these, maybe Mr Isaacs didnt want to do any more or maybe they just didnt get the ratings they deserved ,either way they are far better than some programmes that have lasted a lot longer that werent even half as good as these were...........

Great series, missed some of the episodes when shown on TV so have really enjoyed this watching at my own pace. Set in Edinburgh - which is such a beautiful city, and filmed in same road I stayed in last year so memorable for me

Good price, arrived quickly. Hard to find on dvd, great that it's both series's in this box set. I was an extra in it in the first season, so I bought it to add to my collection of things I've been in. Great acting by all the main characters, nice storylines and great use of Edinburgh's lovely old scenery.
