After dinging the series one star for overall quality of the original prints used there's not much more to rate it down on.
The set is old, but its certainly still entertaining.
Film quality is typical for productions of the period, as is acting and characterization, however I do enjoy older dectective or sleuthy type films.
If this was not a subject that held my interest it probably wouldn't be on my "buy" list. As it is I'll watch it more than once.
It's typcal of English sets of the period, but the gaslight London scenes and English countryside are worth watching these for if nothing else.
The horses, buggys, costumes and sets are all very well done for the period, and it's the sets that make it relatively easy to fall into the storylines.
If you're hypercritical and expect everything remastered or colorized to the 'nth degree, then you may want to give this a pass, but if you enjoy these period releases with the odd blemish adding to the character you might just enjoy it as much as myself. The biggest issue I had was not unexpected and that was audio quality on my set which varied a little during shows.
On disc #3, the episode entitled "The Neurotic Detective" abruptly ends at time interval 21:49 and then goes immediately to the end credits (just to be clear: this is not a DVD-playback issue; it is a an issue with the source material). Since most of the episodes run at about 25 minutes in terms of episode length (before the end credits roll), I am wondering if this particular episode is missing any footage?
The lack of a 5th star results, unfortunately, for some trouble with the discs. Some of the episodes "stuck" on my player. Nevertheless, while annoying, this occasional technical problem still left me with many hours of enjoyable experiences.

On the downside, by modern-day standards, the acting is rather stilted and the technical quality of each black and white episode, very poor. I'm still struggling my way through them and look forward to getting rid of it on eBay.
