All This and Diana Rigg Too!,
This review is from: Heat of the Sun: Private Lives [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
"Heat of the Sun" is one of those mystery period-pieces that I wanted to go on and on, and, alas, it ended too soon. One suspects that cost had something to do with its sudden demise, given the African settings and the exotic thirties' costumes.
"Heat of the Sun" is the perfect series to watch on a cold winter night. Trevor Eve makes an excellent Scotland-Yard-detective-in-exile and Susanna Harker is lovely as the young aviatrix. The mysteries are excellent, the characters are fascinating, the settings are magnificent, and--Oh happy day!--Diana Rigg is still on hand as presenter (in the PBS edition) to tell us about Colonial life in Kenya's "Happy Valley" and the notorious Muthaiga club.
"Mystery" simply isn't the same without her!
