Inspector Alleyn Mysteries (BBC-1 1993-1994, Patrick Malahide, Belinda Lang)

Published

on


Period crime drama series detailing the cases of Detective Chief Inspector Alleyn in the late 1940’s. Academically gifted, with a double first from Oxford, is a somewhat cerebral detective.

Aided by his partner Inspector Brad Fox and novelist lady friend Agatha Troy, Alleyn solves a series of murder cases.

The character, created by New Zealand author Ngaio Marsh, had first appeared on TV in the 1960’s anthology series Detective and then in a one off TV movie in 1990 where he was played by Simon Williams. This can be considered very much a pilot for the series with Belinda Lang and William Simons both appearing.

The series is also known as The Alleyn Mysteries.
