About this deal

Set against a backdrop of 1950s Paris and the surrounding countryside, the unhurried Maigret peels back the idyllic veneer of life in local villages and neighborhoods, exposing the criminals who lurk in all levels of society. Have one "big name" per episode (Cheryl Campbell, Christopher Benjamin, Struan Rodger, Joanna David, Jim Norton, Jonathan Adams, Ann Mitchell), a supporting cast of minor character actors, and fill out the bit parts with Hungarian actors. As a result, English subtitles are provided, but this also presents an excellent opportunity to brush up on your old French language skills, assuming you have them! The Bruno Cremer Maigret series is excellent, because it is in French with English subtitles, which I don't mind. I would recommend watching the last six episodes first and then going back, if you must, to the largely forgettable first season.

lambasts the first 6 episodes of the Gambon Maigrets, but praises the other 6, all done with heavy doses of pretentious name-dropping.

However, I didn't realise that it could not be played on my DVD player, which is not compatible PAL.

Simenon's brilliant stories come to life through remarkable scripts, actors and locals; truly mysterious and convincing; holding your interest without pause.

And it goes almost without saying, the French version pulls no punches and has a much darker way of exploring aspects of the French character that the heart of Simenon; Cremer spends a lot of time listening to people and asks questions which seem strange but reveal hidden truths. R. Atkinson playing Maigret, in the most recent series, would be my second choice, very close to Bruno Cremer, as a very good interpreter of the role. So, in conclusion, the first season is a drab-looking cheap endeavour whilst the second season is the prestige show you'd expect from a Granada-produced "Maigret" series. But that only accounts for a small portion of his total number of novels that he wrote, which are more than 250.Maigret TV Series 1991–2005: starring Bruno Cremer, as the most widely known Maigret, in 54 episodes over 14 years.

Secondly, and most importantly, there's the main cast all of whom are superb and carry the shoddy first season on their shoulders. The settings are so authentic 1950s and although it is shot in colour it seems black and white as the scenes are dreary, which adds to the ambience. In addition, each episode is 90minutes long and the actor is very close to the Maigret, that I envisaged in my imagination, whilst reading the books.
