All 40 episodes from the first series of the early 1960s crime drama that follows the struggles of Sergeant Cork (John Barrie) to introduce the latest scientific detection techniques to the fledgling Metropolitan CID of the 1890s. Helped by his public school assistant Bob Marriott (William Gaunt), Cork investigates a range of puzzling crimes, all the time waging a one-man war with his superiors to achieve proper status and recognition for the CID.

The plots are simple, although a few have some genuine surprises, and all the fluffs are kept in, as was the way back then, but what I found most enjoyable is the double act between Sgt Cork and Bob Marriott plus some excellent guest appearances. It is often funny and sometimes dramatic, touching or surprising. The characters are well fleshed out and enjoyable to watch.
I agree wholeheartedly with the first review. Please bring out the second series.
These are good for their time, though... the sets are definitely studio bound and simplistic, and the acting slow (like Dixon of Dock Green and no wonder, since Ted Willis created it) but the scripts are good and there are nuances in some of the characters, even the incidental characters, that make them interesting....
Oh yes, these discs are worth the money I paid for them. And I do recommend them.
The picture quality is good, as well.
to me, the actors are going about in fancy dress as the scripts make no mention as to what was happening at the time the series was based. this is the biggest letdown of all, as some historical and political references would have gone a long way towards some kind of improvement. alas, it misses the mark by yards.
the two leading actors are good enough, the sets are what you would expect, the footage is typically grainy, the direction is average, the supporting cast are superb for the most part but the lack of any location shots is also a major handicap. usually, i wouldn't mind but it would have helped to have created the right atmosphere if some shots had been done on location.
this series isn't really for me i'm afraid. it's a pity as the potential is clearly there.
