Michael Gambon plays the extraordinary Belgian detective, Inspector Maigret. Intuitive, intelligent and creative with a genius for human nature, Maigret is like no other detective as he cunningly investigates crime and the human psyche. Based on the Novels by Georges Simenon. Maigret is superbly portrayed in this highly acclaimed and imaginative series filmed on location in France.
Still fun to watch.

Was always a fan of Rupert Davies as Maigret but can’t find the early series. Gambon is great though and am loving watching them.

The most rounded portrayal of Maigret, and I think the best. He's not a particularly likeable character in the books, but translation to the screen requires him to be more complex, and Michael Gambon achieves this well. Also it's good to get away from the tedious cliché of the alienated detective with a dysfunctional home life.
