Netherlands released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Under World:
The discovery of a skeleton deep underground in a mine shaft brings Dalziel and Pascoe to the Yorkshire coalfield. When the body is confirmed as a man missing for ten years they realise that they have a murder to investigate. Raking over the past proves difficult for the local population as old wounds are re-opened and old grievances come to the fore. As the investigation progresses the acrimony increases and various relationships come under strain. As the police home in on the culprit the locals take the law into their own hands with tragic consequences.
Oliver Reed once said his face looked like a garbage can. We can say of Warren Clarke that his face looks much like a battered old steel garbage can. His rugby playing days long over, Det. Supt. Andy Dalziel surveys the bleak Yorkshire landscape and the bleaker people inhabiting it with a jaundiced eye and biting sarcasm. He has to deal with a Bible-quoting superior officer who wants to weed out homosexuals on the police force; at the same time one of his men, who is gay, is going through emotional torments because of his infatuation with a delinquent youth. Dalziel has got to keep his team focused on a murder investigation, placate his superior, and stop any more murders in a very dysfunctional family.
Bones and Silence:
Dalziel and Pascoe are investigating a murder that Dalziel was a witness to, in a way, and at the same time, trying to work out who is sending Dalziel letters about an intended suicide. This is a very clever episode...

Like the Silent Witness dvds the UK releases seem to have stopped with series two. At least we can still buy the Dutch release through Amazon. Now lets hope that the rest of this excellent series is released soon.
everything from a touch of frost to The Mrs. Bradley Mystries i will simply lap it up
so this series is very up my street
Clarke is on fine form as usual as the slightly unpc but brillaint Andy Dalizel
the crimes are quite grim but the main leads are very solid as any character in these shows have to be
I have collected all 12 series of Dalizel and Pasco except Diolouges of the dead which I cant get at present
these two go from stregth to strength
as we see a freindship grow in this unlikey police officers
can recommed this series to any crime fan
the only thing that i disliked it the dutch subtiles but they can be easily taken off your screen
but that is my own fault
Most of the episodes are again based on specific Reginald Hill books. Firstly a skeleton is uncovered at a mine when an old mine working is opened up. This ignites old problems even before a journalist gets involved and starts reporting on the investigation. The best tale of the season for me is the second in which an inheritance causes problems after a very unliked woman dies and a long-lost relative turns up. Seemingly unlinked at first, a man tries to blackmail Wieldy about his private life.
Thirdly Dalziel sees a neighbour killed, but there's not enough other evidence to convict the man. Dalziel is convinced he did it and sets about a personal vendetta. Finally we drift into Morse territory when after a murder involving animal rights campaigners the main suspect and Dalziel get romantically entangled.
The relationship and banter between the leads is as crisp as ever and pleasantly the previously underused Wieldy gets a character of his own rather than being just a minor character who gets told what to do.
