Quirky police investigations marbled with time paradox. Though made in the late 1990s, Crime Traveller gives off a 1970s vibe (with commensurate production values plus Michael French doing his best Bodie impersonation). As a boon for Red Dwarf fans, Chloë Annett co-stars.

 

 

Foyle’s War, Series 8

Foyle’s War, Series 8

by Anthony Horowitz (ITV, 2015)

Horowitz_Foyles War 8

A concluding trio of diligently researched, well-realised feature-length mysteries set within and inextricably bound to English society (originally during, now) post- World War II. Michael Kitchen remains facially expressive as Foyle, working for MI5 amidst the early machinations of the Cold War.

An aging Watson harks back to the most shocking of all his adventures with Sherlock Holmes, Horowitz delivering a pastiche that artfully evokes Conan Doyle’s great detective. Holmes is lofty, alacritous and yet vulnerable, the mystery absorbing, the narrative suitably Watson-esque. Top-hole.
