Product Description

Dalziel and Pascoe: Season Seven (DVD)

Amazon.com

Poor Peter Pascoe (played with glum determination by Colin Buchanan). Not only is his dogged, slow-but-steady police work consistently outshined by the piercing insights of his partner, Andy Dalziel (the eternally surly Warren Clarke), but his personal life keeps getting caught up in woeful crimes: When he attends a wedding as best man in "The Unwanted" or plays squash with an old friend in "Dialogues of the Dead," murder crops up posthaste. And when he tries to date… well, it doesn't work out well in "Mens Sana." Not that Dalziel is much luckier; his only sister turns out to have a surprising connection with an investigation in "Sins of the Fathers." "For Love Nor Money" doesn't involve their personal lives, but it does implicate almost their entire police department in illicit activity. It's suspicious, really, just how often Dalziel and Pascoe are intimately connected to the crimes they investigate...

Such implausibilities aside, Dalziel & Pascoe is an intelligent detective series, more focused on character than many such shows. The leads have complex personalities and an even more complex relationship, while the recurring detectives (like the stoic and understated Wield, played by David Royle, and eager newbie Harris, played by Keeley Forsyth) routinely get moments where their individuality shines through. But more importantly, the supporting players in the individual episodes aren't just stock types. A particular standout is a withered former soldier in "Mens Sana," played by the great British slapstick comedian Norman Wisdom, who turns a handful of scenes into a portrait of loss and bitterness. The only weak show of this season is the two-part "Dialogues of the Dead," one of those stories with a fantastical serial killer whose powers verge on the preternatural and whose final identity stretches credulity. But the other episodes are solid and engaging tales of greed getting out of hand, bitterness too long repressed, and secrets that can't be kept any more. --Bret Fetzer

Well thought out & excellent acting.

It's easy to turn-off the Dutch subtitles by going to ONDERTITLS on the main menu, and selecting UIT, very simple.

We are so happy it is being released on DVD.

Don't underestimate Detective Superintendent Inspector Andy Dalziel, under that pugnacious exterior is a ferocious intelligence. Warren Clarke is marvelous as the robust and uninhibited-itchy Dalziel. Yorkshire is not the charming, murderous environs of Midsomer, nor the rarified sphere of Inspector Morse's Oxford. No. This series features mysteries with the roughness of the rolling Yorkshire dales and Dalziel's formidable form. To quote the Fat Man, "A man who can play the bagpipes shouldn't have trouble with this job." Colin Buchanan convincingly contrasts as Detective Inspector Peter Pascoe, trying to cope with balancing work and life. It's worth making it to the standout Series 7, with continuing themes from Andy and Peter's lives, and real character development. Beware, with Series 8, the series slopes into weary decline.

The Unwanted: In beautifully filmed countryside, we finally peer inside Peter Pascoe's uncomfortable family; his father is a grouchy Yorkshire farmer. Migrant workers are targeted for discrimination, while another farmer attempts to create a dynasty. Peter must deal with his parents' problems, and Andy's troublesome health.

Men's Sana: An outstanding episode in the entire series/seasons, with wonderful music, Fat Andy exerting himself in a spa, and a poor badger.

Sins of the Father: A mysterious wood has a healing Angel tree. This story has a moving exploration of Andy's relationship with his sister, family secrets are explored. The sins of the Church towards orphans ripples through generations.

For Love Nor Money: Well-directed by fine actor Warren Clarke (Dalziel)! Pascoe is manipulated into questioning the Fat Man, who does a fine turn bouncing up and down on a trampoline; vintage Dalziel.

Better than Midsommer, Inspector Linley, as good as DI Lewis . DCS Dalziel as good a DCS Foyle, in his own way.

It's a pity, but this Dutch Pal import has all episodes shortened by approx 10 minutes. The cutting has been done "gently", but leaves some strange ellipses.
No subtitles other than Dutch ones.
Otherwise good quality.

The later seasons in the series are not quite as good as the earlier ones, but this pair of actors are always good value.

Although the stories are no longer from the books they are still wonderful. I am surprised that PBS or BBCA never broadcast the series in the US. Buy and enjoy

Although he does still have a few "inappropriate adjustments" in public, this season's Dalziel seems to be much less crass and more compassionate. Perhaps his brush with mortality is giving him a good think. Excellent series, particularly fine cinematography and landscapes this season.

This show tends to vary as to quality in its different seasons but this Season Seven collection of SIX episodes is as full and vibrant as they come!! Not
only great acting with beautiful scenery but also excellent plots which all are
quite complex and satisfying to the viewer.
