Editorial Reviews

The crime-busting odd couple of British law enforcement are back to solve more gripping murder mysteries. This series is as action-packed as ever, although two investigations affect the pair a bit too personally. Pascoe's wife, Ellie, puts her life and her marriage at risk when she gets perilously involved in a murder inquiry. Meanwhile, Dalziel becomes involved in a psychological game with a dangerous killer, who invents almost deliberately implausible alibis when his nearest and dearest begin dying around him. Can Dalziel succeed in proving the man's guilt?

5.0 out of 5 stars HAVING JELLED September 20, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In my previous review of Season two (2) of this splendid British detective/mystery series of Dalziel & Pascoe, I stated that I felt the two main characters as brilliantly played by Warren Clark (Dalziel) and Colin Buchanan (Pascoe) had "jelled" into a wonderfully effective crime solving team. In Season three (3) of this BBC series on two (2) discs with four (4) episodes with each episode running about an hour and a half each, my feeling about the previous season is proven again because Dalziel & Pascoe are really a good team solving some very well written dastardly crimes so very well.

Yes, Dalziel and Pascoe continue to be as different as "night and day". Dalziel is still very crude and appearing to be very uncouth but with a very intuitive mind at solving "who done it" mysteries and not afraid to be not "politically correct" or not afraid to ask some nasty and very blunt questions of a suspect while Pascoe remains to be very well educated and debonair with a more analytical, thoughtful and diplomatic approach to solving a crime always being totally respectful of the suspect,

Season three (3) has some very good mysteries that kept me stumped until "all was revealed" plus this season is really acted very fine indeed. I just love this series and look forward to future releases.

(Please note that the episode entitled "Child's Play" is very good being filled with loads of humor along with very good murder/mysteries involving a "closeted" gay cop, a very sinister house keeper, and some money grabbing and conniving relatives along with a long dead corpse in a cellar, etc.)

5.0 out of 5 stars What is in Season 3: December 28, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another great british Inspector series. The paring of the hard nosed, gruppy Inspector Dalziel and the smooth, quiet Sergeant Pascoe, makes for an interesting pair investigating crimes in the UK. Well written with excellent acting all around.

What should be in Season 3:

Season 3

8 3-01 21/Mar/98 Under World
9 3-02 28/Mar/98 Child's Play
10 3-03 18/Oct/98 Bones and Silence (1)
11 3-04 25/Oct/98 The Wood Beyond (2)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dalziel & Pascoe: Season Three April 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Reginald Hill is one of our three favorite mystery writers and the characters who play the leads (as well as most of the rest of the cast) are perfectly played. We have read all the books and keep hoping that more of them will be made in to videos. We understand that there has been a number of them made, which may or may not be directly from the books, but are not available to us in this country. It is too late for us to move to England in the hopes that they will be available there, so alas, we just have to suffer.

Andy and Peter play off each other wonderfully. Strangely, Andy, in spite of his sometimes bad habits is completely loveable. Weildy is also very appealing, even they keep describing him as less so.

We accidently bought a version of Season Three which had Dutch subtitles. We do not read dutch, although it always seems as if one could just squint you eyes just the right way, you would be able to do so. So we were delighted when this version with proper subtitles appeared.

Please someone make all the videos available -- and with subtitles.

Thank you for your efforts.

Dorothy and David

5.0 out of 5 stars What a Pair! April 28, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have three seasons of this series and really like the stories. Dalziel is a hoot. Pascoe adds balance. The stories are complex enough without being over the top. Highly recommend these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enter the Fat Man April 18, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Nowt I like better than a light lunch. Except mebbe a heavy one" (Hill 2008:375). Detective Superintendent Inspector Andy Dalziel doesn't fit his manly girth inside a "chocolate-box" mystery confection. He's salt-of-the-earth, a Borgnine kinda guy, chewy as the yeast in fine Yorkshire bottle-conditioned ale, with quirks and low-brow toughness. I've read all of Reginald Hill's wonderful, erudite Dalziel & Pascoe mysteries. Warren Clarke is fun as the natural force that is Andy Dalziel, and Colin Buchanan is his perfect foil as Detective Inspector Peter Pascoe. 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). The Yorkshire setting adds to the rich viewing experience, and by Season Four, the music (dated horns straight out of the 1970s/80s) changes much for the better.

Underworld: This was one of Reginald Hill's best mystery novels, unfortunately, this is not a great adaption of Under World: #10 Dalziel & Pascoe, too much show and not enough tell. The lack of narrative power is odd, considering the fine material in the novel, where the depths of the mining underworld is lyrically described, its darkness, history, and complexity. I've lived in western mining towns, the Hill's book does the subject justice. Despite this, you can't miss this episode, which explores class-conflict and clashes between idealist Ellie and her husband, Inspector Peter Pasco. The Jack Russell terrier is a treat. The book featured Dalziel lending his generous strength to an injured Peter, sadly, this is also missing here.
