Handsome, blue-eyed and brooding, maverick cop Detective Sergeant Jim Bergerac of Jerseys Bureau des Etrangers is one of televisions most popular detectives.
Moving with the power of Bergeracs vintage red Triumph Roadster sports car, each episode guarantees full-throttle excitement, ingenious plots and colourful characters as Bergerac patrols the harbour cafes, cliff-top mansions and secluded coves on the trailer of the villains, murderers, spies and smugglers of the holiday island and tax haven.
As Series 3 opens it looks as though Jim is hitting the bottle again. Suspended from duty and under suspicion of murder, Jim is in personal and professional crisis. And whilst women continue to find him intriguing, none can compete with the job, although there is definitely a spark when he encounters attractive jewel thief, the Ice Maiden Philippa Vale for the first time.
Combining action with atmosphere, and spectacle with suspense, Bergerac launched John Nettles to international stardom for 9 series, leading him to another long-running role as D.C.I. Barnaby in Midsomer Murders. For the first time, all 10 uncut episodes from the third series arrive on DVD.
