All 23 Titles + documentary. An 11 Disc set in case with cover

Inspector Wexford features the lives and investigations of Chief Inspector Reg Wexford and his assistant, Inspector Mike Burden.

Note: this is not a commercially released dvd retail set. Most of this rare tv series has never been released on video or dvd.

QUALITY NOTE: Series 2, 'A Guilty Thing Surprised', the sound level is low even with the volume on our TV turned up. Also there are occasional brief jumps and glitches in the picture and minor sound and picture drifting in synch on Series 4: 'The Best Man to Die'. Please remember the series was recorded from tv to video nearly 20 years ago before being transferred to dvd more recently.

The series began life in 1987 to film Ruth Rendell's third Wexford novel Wolf to the Slaughter. This title was produced and directed by John Davies who cast George Baker in the role of Wexford after hearing the actor's voice being edited at Ealing Studios.

The role of Burden was given to Christopher Ravenscroft, a fine actor who had earlier impressed both at the RSC and as the sinister Stapleton in the 1982 BBC production of The Hound of the Baskervilles.

23 titles were filmed between 1987 and 2000.
