I'm of an age to have seen it, but I don't think we ever watched it.

I’m also of an age to have seen it and did see it! Very impressive series. As a family we looked forward to every episode although I’ve no idea how it will seem today.

Apart from that BBC series I am a huge fan of the French series with Bruno Cremer who is an ideal Maigret in a superbly made series of 54 feature length episodes (2 more than those of Rupert Davies).

"We’re thrilled to be working with John Simenon and the BBC on this release and thankfully all of the masters were never destroyed with the exception of the original pilot."
