Network has just announced that all 52 episodes of the definitive adaptation of Georges Simenon's popular Maigret novels, starring Rupert Davies and Ewen Solon, are being made available on Deluxe Limited Edition Blu-ray for the first time! Unseen for more than 50 years, thanks to the BBC's reluctance to repeat black and white series, here's a wonderful opportunity to revive memories or catch it for the first time.
The release date is 23rd August but it can be pre-ordered immediately. In fact, it might prove wise to do so, in case this turns out to be limited!
Your writer grew up watching this series with his family and it was compulsive viewing. Ron Grainer's theme was, of course, perfect, and I think for some episodes he wrote the complete score, but aside from that, the entire production oozed atmosphere, drama, suspense and occasionally humour.
Vive La France & Network. :)
