An excellent series, witty and fun
This is a highly intelligent 1960's British detective show. We're fortunate that the series was preserved, as so many classic UK series were not. You can tell that the budget was probably small, as was commonly true of UK 1960's series. They could not compete with the Yanks on budget. But the quality of the acting was very high, as we often find with British TV series. It's B&W, as was common then.
I want to particularly mention the actress, Gillian Lewis, who was part of the main trio. Her work in the show is a delight. And she was one of the most attractive women to ever appear on British TV, period. She projects an elegance, sensuality and depth that adds much to the many merits of this series.
Note: there are two DVD sets available for this series. Miss Lewis only appears in the first one.
