Product Description & Reviews

Chief Inspector Michael Jericho of Scotland Yard is a respected, uncompromising and forward thinking detective investigating high-profile murders in 1950s London. The series is set in a fascinating period of Britain's social history, when London saw an explosion of colour, glamour and shifting attitudes after the Second World War. Jericho is a man surveying a city changing beyond recognition in front of his eyes. Starring Robert Lindsay (Hornblower; Oliver Twist; My Family), Jane Horrocks (Little Voice) David Troughton (All The Kings Men; Sharpe), Ciarán McMenamin (Watermelon), Francesca Annis (Reckless; The Debt Collector), Nicholas Farrell (Bloody Sunday; The Jury), Claire Bloom (The Camomile Lawn; Brideshead Revisited) and Geraldine Somerville (Gosford Park; Cracker). This is not your grandma's PBS mystery, set in a quiet, subtle British countryside. Containing multiple storylines including racism, kidnapping, infidelity, and murder (of course) in an urban setting, Jericho plays more like an episode of the Law and Order series. The complexity of Detective Jericho brings depth to these stories. Robert Lindsay (of Horatio Hornblower) portrays this multi-dimensional man; though straight-faced, on-point, and brutally serious in his professional endeavors, off-duty reveals his charming, quick-witted, and humorous side, which also can turn deeply introspective and lonely. Flashbacks from his youth reveal a troubled story, making him intriguing enough to keep you interested, without going overboard on the drama. In this modern series set in 1950s London, a seemingly unrelated murder and kidnapping occur at the same time, piquing the curiosity of the detective as he struggles to find the connection. Under scrutiny of the press, the public, and the victims' families, Jericho performs the daunting task of deciphering the truth amongst an abundance of suspects, all hiding their own secrets. Fans of the genre will enjoy this two-disc set, yet the sleekness, color, and fast-pace will appeal to those who may tend to shy away from such programs. Mind the DVD menu as it treats each two-part episode as one. After the first episode ends (credits and all) you have to wait through another set of opening credits and Mystery! intro a second time, before the next (or final half) episode. --Rachel Moss
