After The Professionals, there was Dempsey And Makepeace, another equally ridiculous, yet fun action-drama series. Dempsey And Makepeace began with this 2 hour 1984 feature-length edition where it shows Dempsey (Michael Brandon) transferred from New York to London to work for SI10, an undercover unit, for his own safety after he uncovered corupt activities within his own force and consequently ended up having to shoot one of the officers involved in the heist. There he is set to work with female detective, Harriet Makepeace (Glynis Barber), an English Aristocrat who decided to turn her energies into detective work. With Dempseys thuggish, brash approach and Makepeaces efficently professional outlook, the match is typically eventful as they constantly get in each others way. Eventually a mutual attraction between the two of them is evident and the series was eventually built into a will-they, won't-they ethos. Armed and Extremley Dangerous sees the fiery couple uncover a smuggling racket. The plot is wafer thin but is made entertaining viewing by the complex relationship between Dempsey And Makepeace and there certainly is plenty of fun with the action scenes and daring stunts for its day. Obviously an attempt to make an Americanised series, the series enjoyed a successful run of three seasons between 1984-86 and it was continually repeated in prime-time slots through the duration of the decade, usually on a weekend. Is now something of a cult series as it has endured renewed success after the continual re-runs on Cable TV. Good fun in distinctley 1980's style.Read more ›

This excellent DVD box set collection of the cult-classic, British action-drama series, Dempsey And Makepeace, contains all 30 episodes produced. The series spanned three seasons, filmed between 1984-86. Anyone who enjoys a bit of nostalgia and classic 80's TV then this box set is most definitely for you, and for all fans of Dempsey And Makepeace, this is simply essential!

The plot of the thoroughly enjoyable and fun 92-minute pilot episode, Armed And Extremely Dangerous, is where Jim Dempsey (Michael Brandon), a rather thuggish, street-wise New York cop uncovers scandalous corruption within his force which swiftly see's him edged out and transferred to London's SI10 police unit for his own safety. There he is set to work with the beautiful, aristocratic Harriet Makepeace (Glynis Barber), a high-flying Cambridge graduate and daughter of an English Lord. The pair don't hit it off with both having considerably diverse methods and views on police work. As the series progresses, a mutual attraction between the dynamic duo becomes all too apparent with the ethos of the show constantly drawing on a will-they, wont-they premise, making the show all the more engaging. The other regulars in Dempsey And Makepeace are the no-nonsense, firm but (usually) fair Chief Superintendent Spikings (Ray Smith) and the likeable Sergeant Chas Jarvis (Tony Osoba).

This is the complete dvd boxset of the TV series, Dempsey and Makepeace a timeless tv detective classic. It contains 1 x large dvd case containing 6 dvds of season 1 and 2 and a 2nd smaller dvd case containing 3 dvd of season 3 for a total of 9 dvds.
It also includes new interviews and commentaries with Glynis Barber and Micheal Brandon.Also included are interviews from Sunday Sunday and This morning.
I loved watching this series on tv years ago, but was not aware of the dvd release,until I got an email telling of the demise of the bbc online dvd shop which got me browsing for dvds for all my favourite programs. I found this at a better price on Amazon and bought it. I am glad I did, as I am relishing watching this in a sequential order and realised I never did see the full series on TV. I love the couple Makepeace and Dempsey and the real life couple Glynis Barber and Michael Brandon. I think they rank among my favourite tv couples.

I loved Dempsey & Makepeace when it was on our TV in the early 90s and was really keen to see it again. It was a real gem then and it is still one now. I enjoyed every episode again, especially, that despite some unavoidable violence - after all this is about crime on the streets of London -, there are no rivers of blood all over the screen. It`s full of humour, lovely old cars and the fashion is unmistakeably 80s. A wonderful show that`s not aging at all.

I loved watching Dempsey & Makepeace as a teenager on a Saturday night, really enjoyed watching them all again plenty of action and the chemistry between Glynis & Michael is so obvious. Also nice to see some old interviews included. Would have been more enjoyable in widescreen but skill very watchable.
