Supt. Wycliffe keeps the Cornish coastline crime free as he tackles arsonists, kidnappers and the odd psycho. Jack Shepherd plays the eponymous hero in the one hour TV adaptations of W. J. Burley's creation.Written by
Well, it's old 4:3 format. That's a shock after HD. Typical British gray, dreary small town stuff, which is actually why I watch these. My problem is that as a retired investigator, I find the lack common sense investigative technique in most of these shows abit appalling. This one is much worse than average. "She finds it hard to get up in the mornings." "Fine, thanks, we'll be in touch." What!!!! An eight year old would have asked "why?". Not these guys. And they pursue leads that should mean nothing, but information appears from nowhere. Oh well, I watch it for the foreign color, not any semblance of real police work. If you can stand old TV, it's not bad.
