I just used this to take my order the £15 free delivery threshold: I used to love this series!

If you aren't ordering anything else, don't have prime and don't want to pay delivery (or want quidco) Play also have it at the same price.

Amazon.co.uk Review
Set in a fictitious suburb rather like, say, Pinner (only more so), The Thin Blue Line is the wickedly funny story of a rather down-at-heel police station headed by Inspector Raymond Fowler (Rowan Atkinson), a pompous, repressed but well-intentioned anachronism who wants to do the right thing but who is constantly hampered by his own shortcomings, not to mention his blundering CID colleagues. Atkinson expertly balances his character's inflated sense of self-importance with the insight born of old-school police values, for which his galumphing, shiny-suited CID counterpart, DI Grim (David Haig) has no time at all.

Strongest among the supporting cast is Sgt Pauline Dawkins (Serena Evans), who also happens to be Fowler's live-in lover--a moral dilemma that his traditional values won't allow him to resolve. He salves his conscience by avoiding sex with her whenever possible, an amusing subplot enhanced by Evans's brilliant performance--she positively vibrates with contained, ladylike lust in a manner only equalled by Penelope Keith in the classic sitcom To the Manor Born.

Scripted by Ben Elton, this series manages to satirise provincialism, institutionalised pig-headedness and dated moral values in one fell swoop, while also being chock-full of quick-fire, Blackadder-esque dialogue. --Roger Thomas

Your cock-up?......................... My Ar$e!!!

Its all part of this creeping, crawling, poncey, namby, stick it up your pansy, tight-nosed, toffee-arsed, public school upbringing...

Hot deal, just ordered from Play.com as I don't need anything from Amazon at the moment. Showing as temporarily out of stock though Guess I'll have to wait.

Tango, Tango....two Lilts and a Fanta!


"Just remember Raymond, it's my a*se and if you stuff it, I'm going to be very red in the face."


id hardly call it a hot deal - i mean while the show is hilarious it has been as low as £3.99 before, plus when i first bought this series from play i paid £4.99 - 5 years ago! and its been that price pretty much ever since.
