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.
The Brits have the knack to create the detective/miurder TV series that actually makes you think. Sure there are some formulas, but the stories always seem to have the twist that you don't see in US TV
Go for the whole series, Andy Dalziel ( pronounced De EL)is worth your time and money
