I own the full 6 series all at least 6 & half hours each of excellent entertainment. Each and every one these series follow on from the last program and all are fun atmospheric and draw you into the story so you feel you are right there back in Victorian Edinburgh with McLevy as he and Mulholland bring the criminals to justice.

Taken from the recorded crimes from the real life Inspector James McLevy. 6 series are not enough. PLEASE can we have more, much much more of the fun lovable coffee soaking McLevy.
