Bognor: The Compete Series
Based on the cult mystery novels by author, journalist and royal biographer Tim Heald, this quartet of light-hearted whodunits stars David Horovitch as a bungling but diligent Department of Trade investigator. Featuring guest performances from Patrick Troughton, John Le Mesurier, Glynis Barber, Peter Jeffrey and Elizabeth Spriggs, among many others, this set contains all four stories: Unbecoming Habits, Deadline, Let Sleeping Dogs Die and Just Desserts.
John Steed, Simon Templar, Dick Barton… and Simon Bognor. Following in the footsteps of some illustrious predecessors, the principal agent of the Special Investigations Dept. of the Board of Trade ventures forth to take on wrongdoers wherever they may lurk!
In Unbecoming Habits, he poses as a CID officer to investigate a friary suspected of passing agricultural secrets to the Soviets; Deadline sees him lowering journalistic standards as he goes undercover to probe the murder of a gossip columnist; in Let Sleeping Dogs Die he trails ruthless pedigree dog smugglers; Just Desserts finds him uncovering deadly intrigue in the world of haute cuisine. But will the assignments throw up more clues than Bognor can handle?
