I along with thousands (millions?) of Daiziel and Pascoe Fans have long awaited the release of US Playable (Region 1) sets of Dalziel and Pascoe's adventures. This is set 4, along with sets 1,2,and 3 these represent what I believe were the only episodes shown on US TV (A&E or PBS). The Series went on for 12 seasons, most of which were not available in the US. There are more seasons available from a Dutch company, these are playable on a european or a non-regional DVD Player, Which are not expensive but who wants 2 DVD players?
These first series keep well to the original novels. Reginald Hill is one of the pemier Detective Novelist of our time, Dalziel and Pascoe are not his only characters as most of you know. Unfortunately, In the later Episodes the Film Makers strayed away from the novels. I believe Ellie was elimnated by divorce, as I haven't watched all the later episodes, I do not know if there are further deviations from the novels. Still this is one of the finest detective series availible.
That said, Dalziel and Pascoe are among some of the great pairings in Detective Mystery! This set No.4 includes Ep.12 - On Beulah Heights - Ep.13 -Recalled To Life - Ep.14 - Time To Go - Ep.15 - The British Grenadier. These are what i believe to be the last episodes seen on US TV. Hopefully they will contiune to release the rest of the Series.
