I notice BBC7 is broadcasting the four Nagio Marsh, Inspector Allen, stories they made a few years back, starring Jeremy Clyde.

These were exellent productions and Cylde was ideal for the role. What a pitty they stopped making them.

I liked these productions too, although I felt that squeezing them into an hour caused them to lose some of their atmosphere. If you get the chance to listen to the production of "Death and the Dancing Footman" produced in the 80's the play has a great feel and the characters seem far more realistic.

I feel again it was the lack of sales of the CD release that caused this series to be scrapped.

If they had taken the same approach with this series as they did Agatha Christie i.e. (90 minute minimum), they may have got a different result and more books would have been dramatised.
