Four episodes on two discs

Editorial Reviews

Detective Andy Dalziel is an idiosyncratic copper with a penetrating wit and questionable personal habits. Inspector Peter Pascoe is his cultured sidekick – a thoughtful “New Man” with a degree in Social Sciences, a caring attitude and a sharp brain. When they threw together these contrasting characters, few thought their talents would gel and that, sharing a commitment to justice, they would forge an impressive crime-solving partnership – and a tentative friendship.

Format:DVD
With the four episodes on two discs of Dalziel & Pascoe - Series Two, it's good to see that the quality and the style of Series One have established themselves. That fine actor with a mug's face, Warren Clarke, plays Detective Superintendent Andy Dalziel (pronounced Dee-ell). Dalziel has a Yorkshire accent that at times could use subtitles. He worked his way up and he's smart. He dresses well. He drinks, he smokes, he's overweight, and he yearns to bed most of the good-looking women he meets. Andy is rough around the edges. He's pugnacious towards everyone, especially the better classes. He is sarcastic most of the time and has an unmatched gift for deliberately being crude. As he says to his young sergeant, played by Colin Buchanan, "I scratch my balls, pick my nose and fart with unneeded force." Morse would wince if he ever met Andy.

Peter Pascoe, a university man, is cultured, better educated and almost as smart as his boss. He wants to catch criminals just as much as Andy does. By now Dalziel and Pascoe have formed an effective team, but there's no doubt who is in charge. We've also met the third member of Andy's team, Detective Sergeant Edgar Wield (David Royle). Wield is tall, quiet, reliable and thorough. He can be surprising at times.

The four episodes of Series Two are: Ruling Passion, where Peter and his new wife, Ellie, go to visit a friend and find three corpses; A Killing Kindness, where a serial killer admires Hamlet; Deadheads, where a man with a passion for roses is accused of murder; and Exit Lines, where Peter finds himself investigating Andy.

The DVD transfer is fine. If you have an all-region player, I'd check AmazonUK's price for series two in the region two PAL issue. The price difference, even with postage added, is a bargain compared with the NTSC version from AmazonUS. Other sets in the series also are available there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Continued Improvment of a Great Series March 26, 2010
Format:DVD
Series 2 improves over Series 1 which was excellent (see my
review).My copy is from the UK so you need a Region 2 (or
all Regions) player.2 Disks,4 eps: Ruling Passion,A Killing
Kindness,Deadheads,Exit Lines. I've watched 3 of 4.To quote
Blackhorse47 (UK) the actors are settling into their roles.
Ep3 is the most interesting (were the deaths accidents or
murders?). Ep1 looked a little like a Midsommer Murders ep
Dalziel becomes even more humane,becoming a godfather to
Ellie Pascoe's child-though he "cold-cocks" a thief in ep1.
One attraction of Brit.mysteries for me is that the police
don't always have to wonder about getting shot or beaten up
(it can happen,but its much rarer than here).Comes with sub
titles (although the actors speak fairly distinctly).Highly
recommended of this type.My wife continues her enjoyment of
the series.In some of these,I was able to pick out the likely culprint (not Ep3 though).

5.0 out of 5 stars D & P Go Together Like PB & J October 26, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have both season 1 and season 2 and shout to the heavens, "when is season 3 coming out?" I love these coppers singularly, but, even more so together. Well-rounded and educated Inspector Pascoe makes a great and dignified straight man to, his boss, Detective Dalziel, who is either scratching his boccies in public, or swilling whiskey as if the Scots were going to lose the recipe sometime soon. This series is very well written, produced, and acted. Maybe it's not quite the most fun you can have with your clothes on, but, hey, you're home, clothing is optional.

As a dedicated Reginald Hill fan, I was thrilled to learn that this series had finally been formatted to play on US TV.

I was not disappointed, what great casting. Could watch them over and over,

I saw various episodes on PBS over the years but the Yorkshire accents are hard to follow...great to be able to re-play them and catch the finer points.

Great combination of Brit humor and gritty detective work. Fat Andy (Dalziel..pronounced Dee-ehl) is rude, crude and attentive to small detail. Read more

Subtitles ???
I'm going to order it. If it doesn't have subtitles, I'll be returning it. It's that simple.
