Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The second series in Granada's 'Mr Rose' cult crime/suspense trilogy, It's Dark Outside saw William Mervyn reprising the role of the charismatic Inspector Rose, first introduced in The Odd Man just six months previously and re-emerging in slightly mellowed form in the final series, Mr Rose.

It's Dark Outside follows the sharp-witted and memorably prickly detective as he tackles a fresh batch of cases. Assisting Rose in Series One is the more amenable DS Swift (played by a youthful Keith Barron), with John Carson as solicitor Anthony Brand and June Tobin as Brand's journalist wife, Alice; Series Two sees Rose verbally sparring with newcomer DS Hunter, played by cult favorite actor Anthony Ainley.

Although two series of It's Dark Outside were made, the second was thought completely lost until research for this set unearthed two episodes which still existed on film. Newly transferred, these episodes have been included here alongside all those from Series One.

Five For series, Three For quality

Oh, Network, when will you truly remaster these old gems? Sound quality is very poor as is the image quality often enough, and this is a crime because the series itself is truly something. I imagine many episodes would seem shocking at the time and, as we come full circle, would probably not be aired today as it is not cotton wool bound for current audiences. So, five stars for the series itself, but only a generous three for the quality.
