WONDERFUL FANTASTIC I LOVE ❤️McLEVY
I love McLevy ! ❤️These are fantastic well produced wonderfully acted shows based on the true accounts of the real Scottish Victorian Inspector McLevy and I never get tired of listening to them. I own the full 12 Series and NEED MORE PLEASE! But having spoken with the writer (McLevy’s boss) also played by the writer David Ashton; he tells me the BBC have no intentions of producing any more. This is very sad 😪😪😪 WE LOVE ❤️McLEVY !

If you like classic Sherlock Holmes try McLevy.
I am a huge fan of all classic Sherlock Holmes stories, and am not a fan of the modernized stuff I've seen. I grew up on and never can get enough radio drama. No one does all of this better than the BBC. When I saw a recommendation for McLevy, I thought why not give it a try, and I am so glad I did. I purchased all the series and there isn't a week story in the whole bunch. McLevy is like Holmes in his frustrated relationships with the women in his life. He's definitely more of a romantic than Sherlock Holmes, though not as sentimental as Dr Watson. Like Holmes, McLevy also has a lovable and rather bumbling partner in Constable Mulholland. Listening to the two of them banter back and forth is one of the many joys of this show. McLevy is more humorous than Holmes. Then there is the darkly scheming, yet mysteriously lovely Jean Brash whose feminine charms prove irresistible to the law enforcing Inspector. McLevy is well fleshed out and humanly believable. Like Sherlock Holmes stories, some of McLevy's may stretch the bounds of credibility but serve up a wonderful distraction to take us away from the ever present politics and problems of the modern world to the filthy crime infested streets of Edinburgh. If you like Victorian era mysteries you really can't go wrong here. My only complaint is that it ended way too soon. These are stories I will listen to over and over again.

I’m sorry this is the last of the series.
Great entertainment. I developed a great affinity for the characters and their relational growth over the course of the series- I’ve enjoyed these dramatizations so much I’ve purchased some of the audiobooks. Whether they are as good wont diminish my pleasure of theses radio dramas-
