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.)
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.

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.Read more ›

These two always amaze me, but Dalziel is the one who takes the show, and Pascoe takes it in his stride. EnjoyablePublished 9 months ago by Genny
I purchased this DVD because Michael Kitchen is in one of the episodes. Enjoyable to see a young MK - even if he is portraying someone so evil.Published 14 months ago by Joan K Bartz
