A baffling mystery begins for Burden and a sick Wexford.
22 February 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Reg collapses and ends up with a month off work, naturally he ends up working on a case, ignoring Doctor's orders.

A truly excellent mystery, which boasts a dramatic opening, and a really engaging story. An interesting switch up in dynamic between Reg and Mike, with the latter finally having the upper hand on his boss. Some larger then life characters throughout.

I find it so utterly baffling that these mysteries haven't had a full UK dvd release, thank goodness for the German company that's released those episodes transmitted over there.
