Editorial Reviews

Superintendent Andy Dalziel is no typical supersleuth; though canny and observant, he's also crude and pushy to the point of brutish--but in the hands of Warren Clarke, the lumpy yet charismatic actor who plays Dalziel, he's the driving force of a very-long-lived British crime series. His partner is Detective Inspector Peter Pascoe (Colin Buchanan), who approaches crime from a more educated, intellectual perspective. It's a classic pairing of opposites that drives these cunning mysteries. Dalziel and Pascoe: The First Season includes three episodes: "A Clubbable Woman," about sexual high jinks and murder among the members of a rugby club; "An Advancement of Learning," about sexual high jinks and murder at a university; and "An Autumn Shroud," about sexual high jinks and murder at a country estate. Surprisingly, despite the broad similarities of the shows, each episode is sneaky and colorful, full of winding turns and vivid characters (played by guest stars like Prunella Scales of Fawlty Towers and Francesca Annis of Reckless and The Libertine). But make no mistake, this is Clarke's show. Clarke makes Dalziel completely engaging even though the policeman can be downright mean in his drive to figure things out. It's a fascinatingly real performance, full of warts and wrinkles, revealing a piercing intelligence and granite integrity. For anyone who enjoys murder mysteries, Clarke is not to be missed. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

The blunt-talking Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel does not suffer fools gladly, but he has even more trouble with what he call the "smart arses" of this world. So when the inexperienced Peter Pascoe joins his team at Mid-Yorkshire CID, the omens don't look good. Pascoe is one of the new breed of career police officers, armed with a degree, a caring attitude and a sharp brain. But just as Pascoe is surprised by the intuitive methods of his brash boss, so too does Dalziel begin to recognize the merits of his Detective Inspector...

5.0 out of 5 stars Long overdue December 14, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've long been a fan of mystery shows, particularly British, but Dalziel and Pascoe represents the zenith of all mystery shows. With its literate, biting dialogue and tense interaction between the bombastic Dalziel and cerebral, buttoned-down Pascoe (who clearly admire each other, despite their great differences) it's a series that keeps you riveted to the screen and longing for more. As another viewer complained, up until this forthcoming release, there have been no US releases of this series and only the series 1 and 2 releases in the UK. Thank God for the Netherlands release of 3, 4 and 5. Once you've seen this series you'll understand why - you'll be hooked. It aired briefly years ago in the US and then disappeared. Instead, we get insipid, scenery-chewing remakes of Miss Marple (shame on you Geraldine McEwan). Buy this CD, then get yourself a CD player that plays CDs in other formats and buy the rest - it will be the best purchase you've ever made. And then spread the word - sooner or later someone has to wake up and realize what a great property the BBC has and make it more easily accessible! Dalziel and Pascoe is not to be missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series - Need a U. S. Version October 1, 2007
This is a great series that was shown on U. S. TV many years ago. I can't understand why it hasn't been issued in the U. S.

Please note that the Netherlands and British versions sold on this page require a region-free DVD player capable of playing a PAL disk. They will not play on a standard U. S. DVD player/recorder. If you like British TV, you can pick up an inexpensive region-free player on Amazon.

Another excellent season of this delightful mystery series has been issued in England. I only regret that Series 2, like most of the others, only contains four episodes. The episodes on the two disks of the Series 2 DVD are:
Ruling Passion
A Killing Kindness
Exit Lines

Dare we hope that more are to follow?

5.0 out of 5 stars Please release these for Region 1! November 29, 2007
This mystery series is such a treat, thanks largely to the acerbic (yet somehow delightful) Warren Clarke, who makes mincemeat of the scenery as the curmudgeonly Dalziel. However, the supporting cast are wonderful as well, and the mysteries thoughtful and suspenseful. Hardly a day goes by that I do not miss the once regular appearance of these mystery movies on a certain cable channel. (That would be A&E; one of the greatest television network misnomers {second only to MTV.} Not that I care; this channel was dead to me the moment they stopped airing MI-5.) At any rate, it is distressing to know that this series continued on without me, and I would give much to have it back on my television.

This show has had numerous series in Britain, and yet there are no DVDs available in the US in US format. Why?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Fat Man Cometh April 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Andy Dalziel: "I'm a growing lad. I need fettling" (Hill 2008:97). The Yorkshire "thee, thine, tha, yon, owt, nowt, nay, aye, mebbe," among other forms of local dialect, add delicious flavor to Reginald Hill's mysteries featuring Dalziel and Pascoe. Those enamored of "chocolate-box" mystery confections may also appreciate the salt-of-the-earth qualities of Detective Superintendent Inspector Andy Dalziel. He's a Borgnine kinda guy, a chewy as the yeast in your bottle-conditioned ale. Though this isn't Midsomer County, Barnaby & Jones, ironically, the body-count in Mid-Yorkshire isn't as high as Midsomer's. Fans appreciate the low-brow toughness of Dalziel. I happen to love the Yorkshire setting, and have read all of Reginald Hill's wonderful, erudite mysteries in the Dalziel & Pascoe series. Warren Clarke is fun as Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel, and Colin Buchanan is the perfect foil as Detective Inspector Peter Pascoe. "With Pasco, a little visual horror went a long way. He'd tried everything from vacuous jocularity to Vedic mantras, but such sights [a corpse] still affected him deeply and later almost invariably replayed themselves on that inward eye which can be the bane of solitude" (Hill 2008:195). David Royle is perfect as Detective Sergeant Wield. Regarding Wieldy, Andy Dalziel says, "if yon's the first face you see on the morning, you don't need Jeeves's fancy hangover cure" (Hill 2008:166).

A Clubbable Woman: This adaptation actually improves on the book, the first and weakest in the series. Along with Dalziel, I love rugby union. Things go dangerously amiss when a randy woman is allowed into the rugby club. The maddening thing with this disk/mystery, is there appears to be a manufacturer's flaw towards the end, where it says "After Three Months" the disk may freeze.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Evening with Mr. D-L April 7, 2010
By Mycroft
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
There are so many delightful flashing light dramas from the BBC that one more shouldn't make a difference, but if you have been waiting for Mr. D-L to arrive in America this is a red letter day. Dalziel and Pascoe had a brief run on A & E back when A & E actually wanted to bring something new and different to the air waves, instead of recycled crap. It took only one look to hook me, Fat Andy dug in and wouldn't let go and for the last dozen years I have searched impatiently for a DVD formatted for use on North American DVDs. And now it has come. The series is standard television material, an experienced, journeyman police superintendant takes a college educated sargeant under his wing and tries to mature the lad before the villians can kill him. And that is where standard ends. Pascoe fades almost as soon as the camera rolls and Andrew Dalziel steps to the fore front. He's rude, vulgar, loud, and tasteless and completely charming and one hard-nosed, brass-plated copper. There are only three episode on this release and with any other series that would be a shame, but the quality of Dalziel and Pascoe is such that three great episodes only whet the desire for more. The last episode in the set, with Francesca Anis, is both touching and thrilling and amazingly enough our English pals believe that sex does not end with middle-age. So do yourself a favor, buy the disc, buy one for your friends, buy one for Mother's Day, buy one for the office Christmas party gift exchange and maybe we can convince those folks to release more discs. Fat Andy never fails and the only thing better than this set would be the remaining fournteen years of episodes.
