Your favourite detective series

Post by Johnny Marrmight »

For me it's the Joan Higson Miss Marple, followed by Poirot starring David Suchet

Also really enjoy Quincy and Columbo.

Of the modern day ones, I quite enjoy Rosemary and Thyme.

I was just watching that, which is why I started the thread. Also very enjoyable.

Good but no cartoons allowed. Danger mouse and Batfink therefore also ruled out.

Shit soundtrack, mainly silence apart from a single drunk saxophonist playing the same 16 notes whenever Frost walked out of a kitchen.
