Editorial Reviews

Based on Georges Simenon's classic detective novels

“Gambon is terrific.” —The Times (U.K.)

Emmy® nominee Michael Gambon (Harry Potter, The Singing Detective) is Jules Maigret, the “wonderfully entertaining sleuth” (Austin American-Statesman) at the heart of novelist Georges Simenon’s beloved detective series.

Equipped with rigorous logic, uncanny judgment of character, and, of course, his signature pipe and fedora, Inspector Maigret relishes the challenge of solving any mystery. Filled with dangerous crimes and elusive characters from the villages of rural France to the alleyways of Montmartre, this series brings the most intriguing and complex puzzles from Simenon’s anthology to the screen.

Broadcast on Masterpiece Mystery!, this complete collection features a strong cast of familiar faces, including Brenda Blethyn (Pride & Prejudice), Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting), Barbara Flynn (Cranford), Jane Wymark (Midsomer Murders), Edward Petherbridge (A Dorothy L. Sayers Mystery), and Michael Sheen (Frost/Nixon).

Georges Simenon's novel sleuth, Maigret, comes alive through actor Sir Michael Gambon, some declare to be the finest Maigret ever. It's period Paris underworld of crime. 12 episodes adapted from among 75 novels and 28 short stories of Simenon. Novel sleuth Maigret first appeared in 1930. Some episodes appear to be 30s while others are certainly mid 50s. Stumbling on this DVD set of UK TV crime is a delight. It proves again, nobody televises murder better than the UK, even in 1992-3. Realistic sets (though filmed in Budapest), costumes, props, cases, and dialogue.

Maigret displays characteristics making this series appear the forerunner of Midsomer Murders: Village Case Files. Did Midsomer (1997-today) use Maigret as a blueprint? The style of sleuthing, even hubby/wife relations (actress of Mrs Barnaby actually appears in an episode), and the heavily peppering (like the who's who) of UK guest stars, make both great series look similar. CI Maigret is the early sleuth master of using psychology, a victim sympathizer, very polite, and constantly puffing his Briar. Supporting regular cast: Lucas (Geoffrey Hutchins); Janvier (Jack Galloway); LaPointe (James Larkin) and too many guest stars to name them all.

SDH SUBTITLES for all episodes, each short of an hour. Lengthy, sorry, but a lot of guest loaded stories.

The perfection Michael Gambon brings to the starring role is magnificent. My one deep regret is that they only produced twelve episodes, so I must force myself to wait at least a year between watching them over. Why in the world couldn't they have made 24 or 36 episodes? You can taste the atmosphere, and the music is so good that I would order a soundtrack. What can you say after you've said perfect? As the Dean definitely did not say to me as I got my college degree, "Sorry, but Summa Cum Laude is the highest recognition we are able to give." I have three sets. I don't want to take a chance on any of my discs going bad and not being able to replace it.

It's OK, but not great. Hard to say what wrong with this. Excellent actors and so on. But it really doesn't work. The French version of "Maigret" with Bruno Cremer was much better, more atmospheric and better acted. It seems to me the British are playing "Othello" where "The Cherry Orchard" is required -- completely different pathos. The French version is more nuanced. Bruno Cremer uses nods and turns of the head to make a point, where Michal Gambon raises his voice, like a stage actor would do. He is over-playing. Not a good role for him. Skip that. Buy one with Bruno Cremer and watch "Maigret chez les riches", it's awesome.

I agree totally that this is a terrific adaptation of the great Maigret stories (though too bad it stops at only 12 episodes). Gambon and his supporting actors are uniformly terrific. And Budapest makes a super stand-in for 1950s Paris. The question here is this: How is this set different from the one that came out 8-10 years ago? Has the video quality been upgraded? (This was recently done to wonderful effect for the earlier Poirot shows. The Blu Rays are fantastic.) I see no mention of remastering the Maigret shows, which they definitely could use; no mention of Blu Rays. Until that happens, I have no interest in re-buying.

Sometimes stereotypes are fun. Maigret is the fedora wearing, pipe smoking stereotype of a detective that you just can't help but love. I have never read the novels which were the inspiration for the series, but after watching the show, I am going to be looking for them. Maigret dives into the world of sleuthing with both feet. There is danger and intrigue at every turn, and mysteries that, once solved, will leave you with your mouth handing open. Even when his wife talks him into taking a vacation, he soon finds himself wrapped up in yet another mystery. From missing jewels to shady pimps, this series has something that will appeal to all mystery lovers.

The story lines are interesting and surprising. Maigret is quiet and not theatrical. I viewed one episode a while back and was glad to see that the whole set was at Amazon. I highly recommend this series to some one who really likes a good detective story

These films are charming, with good acting and an elegance of the old film. Maigret can be watched repeatedly with pleasure.

I can't believe they didn't produce more shows in this series! I'd purchase them all! This was a great mystery program as only the Brits can do them!
