I was 8 when I last watched Raffles and I used to love it! 42 now so thought I'd buy this entire series box set and watch them all properly and how glad I am that I did! Arthur J Raffles, socialite man about town and England cricket all rounder by day staying at the very respectable Albany in London. By night assisted by his friend Harry Bunny Manders he is the top cracksman/thief and master of disguise and accents whom steals primarily jewellery to fund his and Bunny's extravagent exsistance and being continuously hounded by the cracking Inspector Mackenzie whom suspects Raffles but just cannot nail him. . .or can he? As an adult I can now admire the dialog/script that was written for Raffles and I couldn't imagine anybody except Anthony Valentine and Christopher Strauli delivering it! Some of the accents that Anthony Valentine pulls off are spot on, brilliant stuff indeed! The locations are fantastic as are the period fixtures, clothes etc. There are 13 episodes which take in all of the short stories by E. W. Hornung, brother in law of Arthur Conan Doyle the creator of Sherlock Holmes. The last episode is a corker! I'll definitely be watching this again at some stage in the future as they certainly don't make them like this anymore! Highly recommended viewing!
