"5 stars for the product
1 stars for the product information on the site. I had to go to another place altogether to find out the information I needed to make an informed decision.
Nowhere in the product description (at Amazon) does it tell you all the episodes included in this set, which are:
A Great Deliverance, Well-Schooled In Murder, Payment in Blood, For The Sake Of Elena, Missing Joseph, Playing for the Ashes, In the Presence of the Enemy, A Suitable Vengeance, and Deception on His Mind.
FYI, these titles are also contained in other sets:
A Great Deliverance
The Inspector Lynley Mysteries
The Inspector Lynley Mysteries 2"

"Having already purchased set 1 and about to purchase set 2, I am distressed to see that a complete(?) set will come out in November. As of October 3rd, there are no posted details on Amazon, except that it will contain Great Deliverance, consist of 9 DVDs and play for 900 minutes. This appears to be set 1 & 2 plus Great Deliverance. Judging by the price, I feel that once again, I am being penalized for buying too early.
Strangely, as of 10/3/04, Amazon is listing three separate DVDs from set 2 - basically released within the same month. What is the point of so many options in a series that only has 9 episodes?
I am increasingly irritated by the artificial packaging of British shows in "series" of 4 episodes. Even though each show is often less than 90 minutes, the packages are always one episode per DVD. The list price looks good if you count the DVDs, but the cost per hour is often higher than that of recent movies. When one considers the age of some of these series, the word exploitation comes to mind.
A worse case is the Morse series, which can only be purchased in single episodes on Amazon. Many of these shows are very old. Anyone wishing to buy them all would pay a small fortune. Inevitably, they will be repackaged and many people will buy the sets, even though they will include episodes already purchased.

"I purchased this set knowing nothing about the series. Over the course of two semi-sleepless nights, I viewed 15 hours of Detective Lynley and his partner, Detective Havers. Normally, I don't forego sleep to view DVDs, but after watching the series pilot, The Great Deliverance, I was hooked!
Each episode is 90 minutes long, a movie unto itself. There are always oodles of suspects and the interplay between Lynley and Havers makes for compelling entertainment.
Be forewarned, if you wish to experience sleep deprivation, this series is for you. Or, with restraint, you may have 90 minute interludes with Lynley and Havers, over a period of nine nights."
