Dalziel and Pascoe: Season Five

Series five of the hugely popular drama Dalziel and Pascoe features four new powerful storylines for the gritty crime investigators DS Andy Dalziel and DI Peter Pascoe. Dalziel is less than pleased to discover that a young girl who was kidnapped and murdered 19 years ago has reappeared alive and well. During his efforts to disprove her identity, she dies for a second time, almost taking the truth with her. When a series of strange tragedies beset the Harlesdon Hunt, Dalziel recognizes that they are not unconnected "accidents" at all. Is it the work of saboteurs?

Detective Superintendent Inspector Andy Dalziel is a force of nature and a wily foe. Under that pugnacious exterior is a ferocious intelligence. Yorkshire is not the charming but murderous environs of Midsomer, or Detective Chief Inspector Morse's Oxford. 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.

A Sweeter Lazarus: Is the resident of a homeless shelter the long-lost victim of abduction, long believed to have been killed, or a fraud? Our Andy fights for the truth in an old, revived case, while poor Peter Pascoe battles his wife; Ellie seems to have changed the rules on him.

Cunning Old Fox: Don't pee up Dalziel's leg and tell him it's raining. Or sprinkle fox piss on our Andy's coat. He's liable to protect the maligned fox from the local hunt, just to get his Yorkshire way. The plot is a bit unlikely, but no more so than other U.K. mysteries, where the merest of motives seems to send otherwise respectable British denizens into murderous rages.

Foreign Bodies: The standout of the bunch, featuring a recovering (from his gun-shot wounds) Dalziel in an amorous mode with an old flame (he has many) in a beautiful, massive Victorian hotel on the coast. Dracula-like, a body washes ashore in a coffin, a black dog roams the seaside resort, and Stella Moon (the same actress who played the Midsomer psychiatrist who spawned evil children) uses her ripe feminine whiles on our susceptible voluptuary, Andy. Brontë fans may especially enjoy a mystery that includes their blustery Yorkshire landscape.

2 lead characters are from the novels of Reginald Hill keep the action and suspense moving. Season 5 is 4 feature-length episodes that aired in 2000.
I bought and viewed REGION 1 DVDs, USA/Canada. Some reviews were written prior to them being available.
DS Andy Dalziel, he pronounces it Dee-el, (Warren Clarke) heads the cop team with a sour face and disposition, but also provides the occasional suspense breaking laugh. His main man, DI Peter Pascoe (Colin Buchanan) is much more new-school and systematic in sleuthing approach, but struggles in this series with marital strife. Season 5 has DS Wield (David Royle) and DC Ivor Novello (Jo-Anne Stockham) assisting. Episodes have fine acting ability and guest stars, but it is the excellent multi-layered writing merging to a finale that makes this show one of the greats. The show lasted over a decade, 1996 to 2007.
The Yorkshire scenes are lovely (home of the Bronte authors.)

SDH SUBTITLES for all 4 episodes; each 1 ½ hr. NO bonus.
1 A SWEETER LAZARUS: A witness (Nicola Walker -`Last Tango in Halifax'; `MI-5') to a suicide jump off a building by a murderer must testify to release Pascoe of responsibility. But she claims to be a former kidnap victim that was killed. Pascoe's job is on the line--his marriage just as shaky. Oops, WDC Kendell has a corpse in her flat.

2 CUNNING OLD FOX: A death on the green hillside during a hunt is determined to be suspicious. Pascoe's rooming wit Dalziel; who seems to agree with critics of the hunting sport. Dalziel sends his female team copper undercover in the posh horse community. `Master of the Hunt' is David Calder (Bramwell; Titanic)

3 FOREIGN BODIES: A body washes up onto the beach like flotsam--ASTONISHINGLY embalmed and in a casket.

Dalziel & Pascoe Season Five is an excellent Detective series . This set has two discs with four gripping epesodes : A Sweeter Lazarus , Cunning Old Fox , Foreign Bodies , and Above The Law . This season begins some time after season fours' ending where DCI Andy Dalziel returns to work after being severely injured at the end of that last season. No sooner that he returns to work then he and his partner DC Peter Pascoe are thrust again into a series of violent and disturbingly mysterious crimes of passion , deception ,drugs , sex as well as the brutal shooting of a well known judge right in the middle of a very high profile drug trial. This series has everything , mystery , suspense , murder , even some surprises you might not see coming until the end . Dalziel & Pascoe is great tv right up there with Midsommer Murders , Inspector Lewis , Wallander and others. The BBC at it's best!

Separated from his wife, Pascoe, (greatly acted by Colin Buchanan) in Season five (5) of "Dalziel and Pascoe", has become a very unlikely roommate of Dalziel (wonderfully acted by Warren Clark). This living arrangement between Dalziel and Pascoe really emphasized that the two British detectives are not only very different in their approaches to solving murders but they are extremely different "privately".

Recovering from his gunshot wound in last season, Dalziel, in Season five (5) is back with his very keen insights but seemly uncouth and rough manners solving horrendous and well written murders that include a "well preserved corpse" floating in the sea in a casket, murder of a judge that has a hidden life, etc. Likewise very debonair and mellow in his dealings with suspects but surprisingly very untidy in his personal life, Pascoe also solves this season some nasty murders. In spite of their differences, Dalziel and Pascoe make a very good team solving the splendidly written cases in Season five (5) of this great series.(This season was filmed in the late 1990s, thus the "team" get a little more "high tech" help solving the murders from their computers)

I really enjoyed Season five (5) of "Dalziel and Pascoe" because it is so well written, directed and, most of all, acted--I adore the "night and day" differences in Pascoe and Dalziel.
