The Human Side of Policing in Amsterdam,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Van Der Valk - Series 1-5 - Complete [DVD]  (DVD)
These are quality adaptations of Nicholas Freeling's intriguing Dutch mysteries and stand up well in production standards,acting and scripts since they first appeared in the 'seventies. A fine actor, the somewhat under-used
Barry Foster, is totally convincing as the Amsterdam detective uncovering the murky side of the lovely city of canals.
The supporting actors are of uniform quality. I regret that we are rather deprived these days of such programs which,
while dealing with the same old crimes (they don't change) yet portray characters as real characters, readily identifiable
in an overall context that is striving for understanding, intelligence and sometimes (hopefully) a civilised outcome.
