Editorial Reviews

"Superb" --The Mirror (U.K.)

Former special-forces operative John Neil (Dennis Waterman, New Tricks, The Sweeney) remains on call for the brass at Britain’s security services. Whether taking on Irish terrorists, tracking down professional assassins, or pitting his wits against ruthless drug dealers, the ex-SAS man harbors no illusions about the work he’s doing--or the people he serves. He faces down deadly adversaries as well as devious bosses who keep him on a need-to-know basis, forcing Neil to rely on his instincts and his training in a world of betrayal, danger, and deceit.

Top British actors guest star in these four feature-length dramas, including Derek Jacobi (I, Claudius), John Hannah (The Mummy), Peter Vaughan (The Remains of the Day), Kate Buffery (Trial & Retribution), Clare Higgins (Silent Witness), and Leo McKern (Rumpole of the Bailey).

The dvd's look great and there's a cast filmography.
Michael Dobey
This is a spy drama that is addicting, touching, romantic in a way both genders should enjoy, fascinating and with quality stories that grab you.

Compelling feature-length stories of the world of spies. John is widowed because of his undercover fight against terrorism. Now he pays with a haunting memory and a compelling life-style that keeps him in danger's snare through Circles of Deceit. Dennis Waterman (`New Tricks') plays reluctant but obedient agent Neil who just can't say not when another call is made to his hideaway home. Is it justice or revenge that caused him to continue putting his life in jeopardy? Can he make a difference? A retrieval of a 1990s spy thriller series that is relevant today.

The equivalent of 4 films, each story is a different mix of plots, with Neil often left to his own instinct for survival when his leaders have decided he is expendable. But this is one spy with a conscience, with spirit, with a nightmare past, but also with a heart for compassion and love. Plenty of action too. A reminder of good intrigue comparable to another British series "A Mind to Kill" but without as much blood.

All 4 episodes average 98 minutes and do have SUBTITLES. Many big guest stars in key roles.
1 THE WOLVES ARE HOWLING takes place in Belfast as the John goes undercover to discover arms information connected to the IRA. He also finds a connecting romantic interest. Neil is haunted by the violent terrorist-caused death of his wife and young son, mental anguish that will carry on in all 4 episodes. Randal (Derek Jacobi-Cadfael) is his handler on the case. Liam McAuley (Peter Vaughn-`Lorna Doone' `Bleak House') a sort of IRA Godfather is Neil's target, but daughter Eilish (Clare Higgins-`Hellraiser' `Pride & Prejudice') catches Neil's heart. Suspenseful, emotional, catastrophic finish.

I read a great deal for work, so high quality visual materials are desert. This is a top quality drama series, and its only flaw is the box looks old and cheesy. Ignore the box. It is a wonderful escape and joy.

I only logged on to see if more sessions, and will always get this series as soon as more come out.

It was with a dash of sadness that I realized this is the first set on DVD in N. America.

The first reviewer did a fine job as I skimmed his review.

This is a spy drama that is addicting, touching, romantic in a way both genders should enjoy, fascinating and with quality stories that grab you. The actors and all involved should be praised for such a gift.

Really enjoyed this series and the realism of the characters. For those of you have may have a problem with various British dialects, the DVDs are Closed Captioned. The detective is grumpy, moody and suffering grief because of the loss of his family. This grief underscores his approach to solving extremely difficult convoluted crimes.

This is a great show. The stories are excellent dramas that are really close to reality. The main character is not a superspy , instead he's a man driven for justice, and in some cases he's just doing his job. Dennis Waterman really carries this show as the tortured spy. His wife and kid were killed by terrorists and he lives in a place overgrown with weeds and sorrow. He's a very good agent though and the stories which feature great performers of the highest caliber in each one; really seem as though they could have happened. The year of these four stories are 1994-95 and this is still a age where cell phones are a rarity, and the soviet union has only very recently fallen. Islamic terrorism is still a problem , that would grow worse each year , but it wasn't front page news back then. The dvd's look great and there's a cast filmography. This isn't a action show ,even though it does have death and shootings , the violence serves the stories and not the other way around. Itv really made a great program with this fine show.

The Circles of Deceit series was exactly as advertised on Amazon. The package arrived on time and in perfect condition. After the first episode, I found I was as pleased with the purchase as I had imagined. I am a big Dennis Waterman fan, and I had never heard of the series. I simply indulged a whim and was rewarded with a grand viewing experience. Another perfect Amazon buying experience.

I was constantly lowering the volume. As British programs it was a bit slow. We love Dennis Waterman in New Tricks
