| The pilot episode has some good features, but is interior to the series.
Prior to the successful launch of the Wycliffe series in 1994, ITV aired this pilot episode, which sees Wycliffe investigates the murder of a bookshop owner, an unpleasant man from a wealth and influential family.

It feels very distant from the forthcoming series, pretty much all of the supporting cast differ from the cast that fans of the show will be familiar with. Fortunately Shepherd is strong enough in the role to make it watchable, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't boring, and featured the worst opening credits you'll ever see, but the beautiful Cornish coast compensates.

I can't imagine fans of the series reaching for this one too often, better things were to follow. 6/10
