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.

The sixth series finds Jim still in his long-term relationship with Susan Young, though his dedication to the job is causing difficulties and the return of his admirer, the glamorous jewel thief Phillippa Vale doesn't help either. And there's still no escaping his ex-father-in-law, Charlie Hungerford, who seems to have influence with both the Jersey criminal fraternity and the local police.

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 7 uncut episodes from the sixth series arrive on DVD, plus the 1988 feature-length Christmas Special.

"One of the major plus points of the series was the way that it didn't always stick to your standard crime story of the week format, it's continuing storyline meant that you really got to know the supporting characters and the plots themselves too were never afraid to move into darker territory occasionally moving into outright horror or the unexplained."
