The series was filmed in Budapest which makes a very good 1950's Paris (although Maigret worked from 1930 to 1972 in the novels, by which time he would have been about 88) and spares us establishing shots of the Eiffel Tower every two minutes. I am looking to reading some of the books now that we have exhausted the series and seeing if they are equally as good as an escape. The last few nights I have been watching on Britbox the newest Maigret series starring Rowan Atkinson.

Meanwhile, the Hungarian actors are awfully dubbed with ill-fitting voices and you get such laughable moments as when a featherweight French policeman speaks out with the voice of Sherrill Milnes. Michael Gambon is spot-on as Maigret, one of the best and most faithful to the books as a matter of fact.The Bruno Cremer Maigret series is excellent, because it is in French with English subtitles, which I don't mind.

I’ve read all of the Maigret books and was disappointed that an author with such a prolific pipe collection did not reference a pipe brand or tobacco used by the character. The series has been remastered for HD TV and the picture quality is amazing compared to the original series shown on TV. The scripts for this first season tended to be plodding and dull and seemingly written for the old studio-bound production style.Have now watched the first 12 'cases' and have been gobsmacked at the timelessness of the production. The first two originally aired in March and December of 2016; the last two in April and December of 2017. Seeing they had a potential hit on their hands, Granada poured more money into the second season and the result is unbelievable. Also definitive is John Moffatt as Monsieur Coméliau absolutely embodying the snooty, disruptive and snobbish judge from the novels.

Whatever you do don’t commit the crime of missing this set Maigret will catch up with you in the end….It was nice the Swiss TV technicians who were hanging out in front of my door, it lasted at least 15 days, had to be careful when going out, hide the cars. Of course they take liberties with the stories, and this is normal and to be expected with TV / movie dramatizations of books, but the dialog is very disappointing and not at all the Maigret of Simenon. This is readily evident with Gambon, who apparently read some of the books, presumably along with the directors and producers? I like the recent,Rowan Atkinson version of Maigret but this version is bigger budget and a better view of Maigret and his team in a more sinful Paris.

Today I'm going to start the 1992 Maigret series starring Michael Gambon (Dumbledore from Harry Potter). I'm fond of them both, but the Cremer Maigret is one of my favorite television programs, with plenty to love, at over 75 hours.This was before the feminist movement in France and Belgium, in the films taking place in the 1950s and 1960s. I don't think we watched them in French with English subtitles like we did with other movies, but he's a French detective and there are a lot of French words and sites that are helpful to the students. Whether filmed in city or countryside settings, the locations are beautifully set in accordance with the theme of the particular crime -- the film crew even seems to wait for the appropriate ominous weather, or storm, to set the appropriate mood for unfolding events. The first season pales in comparison not only with its contemporaries on British television ("Cadfael", "Poirot", "Morse" etc.
