The TV Detectives brings together five of Nigel Hess’s best-known television themes (Dangerfield, Campion, Wycliffe, Maigret and Hetty Wainthropp Investigates), all originally written for small-screen sleuths in whodunnits that have been enjoyed by TV audiences worldwide.
Dangerfield, a BBC series about a Warwickshire police surgeon, originally starred Nigel le Vaillant, before Nigel Havers took over the lead role. Campion, also from the BBC, was based on Margery Allingham’s stories of a mild-mannered 1920s gentleman detective, played by Peter Davison. HTV's Wycliffe, the long-running series set in Cornwall starring Jack Shepherd as a somewhat dour and low-key DCI - but, of course, he always solved the case! Michael Gambon starred in Granada TV’s latest incarnation of the famous French detective Maigret, while Patricia Routledge played the OAP sleuth to perfection in Hetty Wainthropp Investigates, another popular BBC series.
