Handsome, blue-eyed and brooding, maverick cop Detective Sergeant Jim Bergerac of Jersey’s Bureau des Étrangers is one of television’s most popular detectives.

Moving with the power of Bergerac’s 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 trail of the villains, murderers, spies and smugglers of the holiday island and tax haven.

Series 5 finds Bergerac still with beautiful estate agent, Susan Young, his most serious relationship since his marriage. Though when attractive jewel thief, the 'Ice Maiden', Philippa Vale, turns up seeding Jim's help again, Susan finds she has a rival who would be very happy to take the detective off her hands.

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 8 uncut episodes from the fifth series arrive on DVD, plus the 1987 feature-length Christmas Special and an exclusive Audio Commentary with series stars John Nettles and Louise Jameson.

"When Nettles was Jersey-based detective Bergerac in the late '80s, he played it sexy, maverick and a bit dangerous. Bergerac had a trail of flighty exes and a horny frisson with the sexy lady criminals." The Guardian
