watching re-runs of this thinking mans/womans detective series - filmed of course in the harsh but equally picturesque north of England country. excellent acting by all and sad to hear of the untimely death of Warren Clarke - without a penny to his name. the music was provided by that great composer Barrington Pheloung - the haunting romantic sound of the flugel horn is to my mind majestic.

It was sad and curious why this series was canned along with other notable BBC series by a new "controller" who's only objective was to save money whilst still paying out millions to someĀ  some 'star' idols!

I'm with you there, Davo. It, along with Morse, was truly a great series. Sad to see Warren's passing. I've read all the books by Reginald Hill. He too passed away. The series deviated from the books after a time. In the books Ellie and Rosie never left. I could go on forever. great taste.

welcome aboard Gibbo - having not read the books at all how close did the tv series characters match - particularly dalziel with his womanizing; whiskey drinking; cigarette smoking and general ill health whereas poor old pascoe try to play it even! The countryside used reminds me of the similar outlook in Last Tango in Halifax!

Hey, Davo. The series wasn't far off the books. Hill had a wicked sense of humour and transferred that to Fat Andy. He drank like a fish and smoked like a chimney. If you're a reader, you have a special treat in store. I'm in Sydney, mate. Where are you? Cheers.
