Product Description

Andy Dalziel and his sidekick Peter Pascoe are back to solve more murder mysteries in this thrilling new season of Dalziel and Pascoe. Warren Clarke is the witty down-to-earth Andy Dalziel and Colin Buchanan is his university-educated sidekick DI Peter Pascoe. The riveting combination of Dalziel's old-style policing and Pascoe's university-educated new man approach has made them a worldwide hit. Dalziel & Pascoe is based on the award-winning novels of top crime-writer Reginald Hill. "Dalziel & Pascoe is an intelligent detective series, more focused on character than many such shows. The leads have complex personalities and an even more complex relationship, while the recurring detectives (like the stoic and understated Wield, played by David Royle, and eager newbie Harris, played by Keeley Forsyth) routinely get moments where their individuality shines through. But more importantly, the supporting players in the individual episodes aren't just stock types. A particular standout is a withered former soldier in "Mens Sana," played by the great British slapstick comedian Norman Wisdom, who turns a handful of scenes into a portrait of loss and bitterness. The only weak show of this season is the two-part "Dialogues of the Dead," one of those stories with a fantastical serial killer whose powers verge on the preternatural and whose final identity stretches credulity. But the other episodes are solid and engaging tales of greed getting out of hand, bitterness too long repressed, and secrets that can't be kept any more." --Bret Fetzer

Although 'Pascoe' character is a bit wooden the series revolves around Dalziel and his personality. Can hardly wait for the rest of the series to appear in North America.

The plot, production values and performance were excellent. I would like to see the continuation of a sub plot with some non-disastrous romance for Pascoe. Dalziel does very well, thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Fat Man Indeed April 24 2012
By FYI - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Don't underestimate Detective Superintendent Inspector Andy Dalziel, under that pugnacious exterior is a ferocious intelligence. Warren Clarke is marvelous as the robust and uninhibited-itchy Dalziel. Yorkshire is not the charming, murderous environs of Midsomer, nor the rarified sphere of Inspector Morse's Oxford. No. This series features mysteries with the roughness of the rolling Yorkshire dales and Dalziel's formidable form. To quote the Fat Man, "A man who can play the bagpipes shouldn't have trouble with this job." Colin Buchanan convincingly contrasts as Detective Inspector Peter Pascoe, trying to cope with balancing work and life. It's worth making it to the standout Series 7, with continuing themes from Andy and Peter's lives, and real character development. Beware, with Series 8, the series slopes into weary decline.

The Unwanted: In beautifully filmed countryside, we finally peer inside Peter Pascoe's uncomfortable family; his father is a grouchy Yorkshire farmer. Migrant workers are targeted for discrimination, while another farmer attempts to create a dynasty. Peter must deal with his parents' problems, and Andy's troublesome health.

Men's Sana: An outstanding episode in the entire series/seasons, with wonderful music, Fat Andy exerting himself in a spa, and a poor badger.

Sins of the Father: A mysterious wood has a healing Angel tree. This story has a moving exploration of Andy's relationship with his sister, family secrets are explored. The sins of the Church towards orphans ripples through generations.

For Love Nor Money: Well-directed by fine actor Warren Clarke (Dalziel)! Pascoe is manipulated into questioning the Fat Man, who does a fine turn bouncing up and down on a trampoline; vintage Dalziel.

Fans of the Fat Man, you are not alone. Even in the U.K., for some bizarre reason, you can't get further Dalziel & Pascoe Seasons without Dutch subtitles, and Dutch product/story descriptions! Series 6 - 11 are available, even though they're formatted for Region 2. Series 6 and 7 will satisfy your craving for more, but by Series 9, the show drastically declines in quality (also noted by U.K. reviewers).

The DVDS: The soundtracks are in English. It's easy to turn-off the Dutch subtitles by going to ONDERTITLS on the main menu, and selecting UIT, very simple. Even in the U.K., viewers have to do this, since the Series isn't available even in the original BBC format. The Dutch are keeping Dalziel & Pascoe alive. I know several residents of Amsterdam, archaeologists and fanatical fans of U.K. mysteries, who stay up late into the night watching shows like this. Now, we're enjoying MORE marvelous Dalziel and Pascoe without having to wait for updated or Region 1 versions.

The DVD Player: Get yourself a DVD player with Region-Free capacity, like Philips DVP3560 All Region 1080p HDMI Upconverting DVD Player, but order a AmazonBasics High-Speed HDMI Cable (6.5 Feet/2.0 Meters) with it, as this important component is not supplied! Or get another brand of HDMI cable, they're all ok. If all you want is to play your U.K. or other DVDS, that's all you need, don't worry about the other plug-ins that come with the DVD player. BUT be sure to read how to get the DVD player Region-Free with instructions posted by the first reviewer (S. Hatayama). When you enter the numbers as he instructs, you won't see a change on-screen until the Region Code pops up, don't worry, his instructions are perfect. To adjust picture-size on screen (mine was too stretched out), just hit the zoom button on the remote until it fits your screen. "Setting" will give you high-resolution choice - my old T.V. is 1080i. If the picture is too black (I had to go +5 to see all the details, you may need more/less), up the brightness under the "Personal" choice in Picture (Standard, Bright, Soft, Personal) menu. Good luck!

3.0 out of 5 stars Dutch import - shortened June 2 2012
By Bobbibo - Published on Amazon.com
It's a pity, but this Dutch Pal import has all episodes shortened by approx 10 minutes. The cutting has been done "gently", but leaves some strange ellipses.
No subtitles other than Dutch ones.
Otherwise good quality.
