Set amid the windswept beauty of Cornwall, this popular and acclaimed series follows Detective Superintendent Charles Wycliffe as he investigates the region s most serious and challenging cases. Whilst the storylines often highlight the social and economic difficulties faced by the local community, the conscientious Wycliffe offers something of a contrast to the classic maverick detective ; a family man with a fastidious, tolerant approach, he tackles each investigation with a calm determination and a resolutely open mind, and his incisive style of questioning never fails to cut through to the heart of the mystery. Jack Shepherd is quietly charismatic in the title role, alongside Jimmy Yuill and Helen Masters as Detective Inspectors Doug Kersey and Lucy Lane - his dependable but very human colleagues. Boasting award-winning theme music composed by Nigel Hess, Wycliffe remained a top-rated drama throughout its five-year run. This release presents the complete fifth and final series, alongside the feature-length 1997 Christmas Special.
