4/13/1980 Sergeant Cribb meets PBS
I saw them a year later and it used to drive me crazy because at the same time I could watch NBC's disastrous attempt to bring Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe to the screen in the person of William Conrad. Why could the British do so well what Hollywood couldn't do at all?
The only bad thing about the series was that Peter Lovesey used up all his ideas for future Victorian stories on episodes of the show. He never wrote another Cribb novel.
