No nonsense McLevy
on 14 April 2011
I was looking for another detective radio 4 series to listen to and took a 'chance' with Inspector McLevy and his faithful constable Mulaholland. Truth is I saw Brian Cox's name attatched to this series and knew it would be worth a try. This 2 cd set contains the stories 'For Unto Us' and 'The Trophy Club'.
Based in Victorian Edinburgh, McLevy has a no nonsense approach to his work. A dour scotsman with a thirst for solving crime. He treats all criminals with contempt, without exception. Brian Cox does a splendid job and brings Inspector McLevy to life in our imagination.
Is it me, or are these briliant radio 4 plays so much more entertaining than todays television (a medium that is lacking 'vision' even more these days). There are now 3 cd's in this collection. All detective fans will enjoy McLevy and his sometimes very dry one liners.
