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 story-lines 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, joined by newcomer DCC Stevens (Mike Attwell). 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 fourth series, originally transmitted in 1997 and also starring Sharon Duce, Tamsin Greig, Ronald Hines and Gwen Taylo.
