For anyone who's never seen Ron Moody in action, he is nothing short of a genius! He can perform impressions like Frank Gorshin; improvise like Jonathon Winters and gleam madly like John Astin. Bearing in mind I love those guys' work, you'll know how much I respect Moody.
Hart of the Yard was a little weak in places, but for it's era and medium, very, very good overall. It certainly gave Moody the opportunity to demonstrate his ample talents in a variety of ways. He plays the role overall as a rather accident-prone modern Sherlock Holmes. But the different situations each week allowed him to display different aspects of the character and his background.
I would love to see this again! Just checked Amazon and found it's not released on DVD or even video, so let's sort that out TVland, okay?!
