Re: The Alleyn Mysteries
It's very good. Patrick Malahide is not everybody's Alleyn, but I liked him. He never sends the part up, but there is a lovely quirk that he gives the character. Whenever he sees something viscerally unpleasant, he always manages to look as though he might be about to be sick. So many TV tecs have cast iron stomachs, that this is rather a charming weakness. The other leads are also well cast. This was made at the same time that the Beeb were making things like Campion, and the production values are of the same scale.
