Series 9 was when the BBC started showing the series as two part episodes rather than in their previous feature length format, presumably because this style no longer fitted in with their schedules. I don't know if that was a factor in the reduced quality of the later episodes when compared to the classic early ones, but it's obvious that the show doesn't work as well as it did. Having said that, the strong writing, great dialogue and good acting means this show still remains enjoyable.
This year standout story is Heads you Lose in which Pascoe is seriously injured, which makes a change from all the problems Dalziel has had with his health. Dalziel nicely spirals out of control after the loss of his soothing influence. In Dead Meat they investigate a dodgy zoo, in the Dig they look at a murder at an archaeological dig, and Dust Thou Art concerns a death at an arts' centre. As can be seen from those brief summaries the stories are now a long way from the tales of grimy, low-key murders in Yorkshire 'we don't trust no strangers round these parts' mining villages.
There is no doubt these productions are 'gritty' and I certainly enjoyed all of them when originally produced.
I have to say though that they seem to have got, not just darker which is ok, but depressing. Good guys and girls getting bumped off by various means, reopening of the Pascoe marriage saga etc.
I cannot criticise the quality (except Warren Clark's hair)but others seem to have a counterbalancing humour e.g. Frost, Lewis and co.
everything from a touch of frost to The Mrs. Bradley Mystries i will simply lap it up
so this series is very up my street
Clarke is on fine form as usual as the slightly unpc but brillaint Andy Dalizel
the crimes are quite grim but the main leads are very solid as any character in these shows have to be
I have collected all 12 series of Dalizel and Pasco except Diolouges of the dead which I cant get at present
can recommed this series to any crime fan
the only thing that i disliked it the dutch subtiles but they can be easily taken off your screen
Well worth adding to your collection
