5.0 out of 5 stars Another good British mystery series April 17 2009
By Allan
Format:DVD
This is a solid mystery series in the British tradition of "more thought and less blood". Too often mystery shows slop (literally) over into the slasher genre. For those who want to be entertained by plot instead of shock, this series is worth purchasing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wycliffe Jan. 5 2012
By Duchess TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have to admit that this is not quite what the Poirot/Midsomer Murder series are, but I still think it to be ranked the same calibre of the Poirot/Midsomer Murders series. Although these are only about an hour long, it still is the better quality of show to watch when it comes to the way the plots are put together. This series, being only about an hour long on each show and because it is more fast paced, you'll have to pay more attention to what's going on . As to what most of the police/detective shows are these days in the US (Law and Order, etc) and even some in the British shows, that are consisting of the violence and/or bloody and gory scenes, these at least do not have that. Here they are more thought and less violence. I think plots for mysteries can be good enough WITHOUT having all that. In each of the shows played in this series, it manages to get the point across. If you don't like mysteries that contain a lot of violence, you may also like these. If you do prefer movies with violent scenes, then these are not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wycliffe series 1 April 30 2009
By W. C. Sherman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We thoroughly enjoyed this series and are looking forward to more of them. That being said, it should be noted that they done in an hour long format, and therefore move along much more quickly than many of the British mysteries like Morse, Midsomer Murders, Touch of Frost, and the like. Nevertheless, the stories are good, the police team is fun to watch in action, especially as you get to know the characters better, and Cornwall itself makes a stunning location for the series, which is based on the books by W. J. Burley. I thought about marking this down a notch when compared to the quality of Inspector Morse, but we enjoyed it so much that I decided it was worth top marks considered as a different category. Sometimes an hour just hits the spot, and these are well done.

3.0 out of 5 stars A shade above average Oct. 18 2009
By C.A. Arthur - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Series one of Wycliffe does not compel me to purchase series two. The scenery is gorgeous and well photographed, the acting is fine, and the music is beautiful. But the writing is often awkward and the characters in the series are never well defined. Three people, really, are solving murders: Wycliffe, who is a senior policeman, a bearded assistant, and an attractive young policewoman. All we learn about the star of the series is that he is rather pleasant, calm, and intensely irreligious. The entire film "Last Rites" is a particularly shrill attack upon Christianity. The bearded cop is always eating and smoking (Why do we need closeups of his chewing, slurping and lighting up?). The young woman is wooden enough to be featured on a daytime soap opera.

Moreover, there is a total lack of humanity or humor in these films. A coroner seems to enjoy the mutilated and frozen corpses he faces. Wycliffe shouts at a few suspects and grimaces at corpses. There are a few car chases to enliven the programs. Otherwise, all is grim and nasty. Not recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs remastering July 4 2009
By Larry Fryer - Published on Amazon.com

Really quite a well done show, but images dated and not as clear as would expect today. PLEASE remaster this series--it has a lot of potential.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good acting, stunning locations May 23 2010
By John D. Muir - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is an excellent series with good British character actors working in visually stunning locations. There's not a lot of humor in it, but it's believable and well worked out. It doesn't adhere very closely to the books by W.J. Burley, but anyone who has read the books will understand that they needed to be changed to introduce regular characters to support the introspective Wycliffe.

Well worth purchasing for anyone who enjoys low-key British dectective dramas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, Not Great Dec 30 2011
By David Bower - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
As fans of British mysteries we had high hopes for Wycliffe and were somewhat disappointed with this series. They're not really bad just not as good as we had hoped they would be. We'll continue to watch them and see if anything changes but as for right now the jury is out.

I've watched this type of series mature over a season or two and hope this one might improve also; I have "New Tricks" in mind particularly which improved after the first season in my opinion.

You may like it more than I do and it's worth checking out.
