I have fond remembrances of this show from when it was first broadcast on the BBC. It is well above the usual costume detective dramas of the period and later. Campion is a real human with faults and failings and has the best sidekick ever in Lugg. I recently watched "Death of a Ghost" on VHS from the first series of this show. The VHS I watched was released in the UK by WH Smiths in 1991 and has been butchered.

The story as originally screened ran for two 50 minute episodes, but the run time on this tape is 81 minutes. Allowing for a duplication of credits I still reckon 20 or so minutes was very obviously and clumsily chopped out. There were gaps in the narrative and If you are looking to buy this series check the running times on the back of the case before you buy. Each story should run at 100+ minutes.
