To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have been collecting this series over the past six months, although I did watch most of the episodes on TV. Good TV Drama like this is worth collecting on DVD, because with some of the rubbish on TV just lately, I always have something good to watch. I have just recently bought the Cracker set of DVD's, again, brilliant series. I notice that the new series of Trial & Retribution, seasons 7 to 14 is now available as Dutch Import versions (similar to The Onedin Line set) but they are a bit pricy at the moment, averaging £23 for each season. My advice is to wait about twelve months before buying these (that's if you have not already bought them). If you like good crime drama, then I strongly reccomend Trial & Retribution. My next set to purchase will be Prime Suspect I think.
This series is one of the many wonderful British TV series which we do not get in the US. Like most British series, the episodes are longer than in any US series, which allows more character development and more twists. It also has a more finely nuanced set of conclusions than the typical US series. Perhaps, more jaded than Americans, the ending of each episode is less likely to be "happy ever after", with both villain and hero getting their just desserts. The acting is always excellent, and so is the writing.
What a fantastic series trial & retribution. This is the last box set ( the sixth collection ) I'm just so sad they did not make more This set was well worth the money and well worth watching the whole series
