Recalling 1963: Maigret Meets A Milord, Penguin Books,1963
Actor Rupert Davies enthralled audiences each week as French writer Simenon's super sleuth that he was even brought back for a one-off special in 1969.
Curiously Maigret has rarely been repeated since the 60s and has niether been released on video or DVD. I recall catching a repeat back in the 80s and would certainly welcome the chance to see a few more.
In the meantime I will have to make do with this Penguin book I found last weekend. Published in 1963 to tie-in with the TV series (and featuring Rupert Davies as Maigret on the cover) this title, Maigret Meets a Milord features several of Simenon's early Maigret stories translated into English.
