Hazell still cuts a stylish figure driving through 70's London Town in his 'new motor', a resplendent Triumph Stag.
The use of plenty of location shoots gives the series a more authentic feel and certainly makes it a more watchable experience than other programmes of a similiar vintage.
The voice overs are superb and Hazell's dialogue with Cousin Tel is excellent.
Some of the episodes are a little slow paced at times; however overall a highly recommended although expensive buy.
Incidentally the release of series 2 originally planned for 19/7/04 seems to have faded into mist.
I have one criticism of this package. It is advertised as having new interviews with both Nick Ball (Hazell) and co-writer Terry Venables. These interviews are NOT on the DVD for whatever reason - I have made enquiries (which are on going)as to what happened to them. Maybe they will be included on the DVD of the second series if and when it comes out.
Despite this omission, I do recommend this series.
It's a pity that Hazell only went to two series, and its even more of a pity that series two isn't available on DVD.
Hopefully that will be recified soon.
I would highly recommend Hazell to anyone interested in a well made (and acted) example of the "private investigator" genre, and for a look back at London of the late 1970's.
I am too young too know this programme but knew Terry Venables was involved in the writing and making the programme and wanted to see what it is like.
It is very dated but would have been well ahead of its time in 1978 when it was shown on TV.
Nicholas Ball reminds of Paul Nicholas from Just Good Friends.
Choc Minty is an excellent character and Brilliantly played.
Buy this DVD. You will be glued by the end of the series.
I really enjoyed watching the cheeky chappie cockney boy all over again.
An absolute masterpiece, bring the series back.
Great stuff. Buy it.

I enjoyed seeing this series again after such a long time and nice to see celia Gregory sadly no longer with usPublished 7 months ago by Amazon Customer
The likeable Nicholas Ball as a Cockney PI and a great supporting cast. Late 70's fashion and London in nostalgic times; good plots; quite understated, real-life situations. Read morePublished on 10 Feb. 2013 by Degu Dora
