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 season DVD being released this week and one that is releasing a number of its episodes on multiple DVDs.

John Thaw starred as a superb courtroom drama series that aired over 6 seasons from 1995 to 2001 in the UK. James Kavanagh, a top member of Queen's Counsel, is fiesty and fierce, his relentless mind pursuing the truth with insatiable hunger and rapier-like skill. Often facing unexpected twists in testimony and surprising crucial moments at trial, Kavanagh maintains his reputation as a formidable opponent who will go to any lengths to see justice served.

Ten episodes are being released this week on 3 separate DVDs. Episodes from March 1998 are on the Memento Mori Set (which includes Momento Mori, Care in the Community, and Briefs Trooping Gaily); episodes from April 1998 are on the Bearing Witness Set (which includes Bearing Witness, Innocency of Life, and Dead Reckoning); and episodes from March 1999 are on the Previous Convictions Set (which includes Previous Convictions, The More Loving One, Time of Need, and End Games).

One of our favorite series, aired on CBS over 7 seasons from 1966 through 1973. The penultimate season saw the departure of Leonard Nimoy as Paris aand Lesley Ann Warren as Dana Lambert, and the addition of Lynda Day George as Lisa Casey. Having exhausted virtually all foreign enemies as plot devices, for the sixth season Jim and his team focus mainly on targets in the US but outside the reach of conventional law enforcement agencies, as they successfully bring master criminals, corrupt politicians, and syndicate bosses to justice.

The Mission: Impossible: Season Six DVD set of 6 discs contains the 22 episodes that aired from September 1971 through February 1972.
