Mysteries on TV: The Inspector Lynley Complete Series

Mysteries on TV

, your source for the most complete selection of detective, amateur sleuth, private investigator, and suspense television mystery series now available or coming soon to DVD, is profiling one series that has a complete collecion DVD being released this week.

began with a single made-for-television movie, A Great Deliverance based on the novel by , in March 2001 and went on to become one of the best mystery series ever filmed. Despite consistently high ratings, even for repeats, this past summer the BBC caught everyone off guard and cancelled the series after 23 episodes citing the need to move on. A lame excuse at best.

The series starred Nathaniel Parker as Detective Inspector Thomas Lynley and Sharon Small as Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers. Approximately half of the episodes, and all of the early ones, were adapted from Elizabeth George novels; the remaining were original screenplays. In addition to solving murders, the series examined the characters' personal lives and the conflicts of their social class; Lynley was an earl, a peer of the realm, and Havers came from a working class family.

If you haven't yet purchased any of the individual seasons to date, here's an opportunity to acquire the complete collection at a very attractive price. The Inspector Lynley Mysteries: The Complete Series DVD set of 12 discs contains all 23 episodes that originally aired in the UK from March 2001 through June 2008. (The episodes typically aired several months later on PBS Mystery! in the US.)
