Looking forward to the return of Inspector Maigret ( Mr Bean ) sorting out the murders and crime in his trusty Traction.
UTV Easter Monday 9. 00 pm on Northern Ireland channels, may be at a different time in England.
This Show not to be missed.
Well I watched it last night and Mr Bean had nothing on Rupert Davies, my wife said it was like ‘watching paint dry’ and fell asleep at one point 🙄
Star of the programme was definitely the Traction, but set in 1955 would it have had screen washer fitted and a drivers door handle mounted mirror?
Of course not Dave.
The programme was absolute rubbish and an insult to Simenon. Another 2 hours I won’t get back.
So thumbs up then Den 🙂
A nice film with the Traction as the star is Suite Francaise (all in English) set in France when Germany invaded.

I just can’t see Rowan Atkinson in this role. Michael Gambon was the man! I have a friend here who’s manner of speaking and tone of voice is so like Gambon’s it’s uncanny! From Sheffield he is.
Born: Michael John Gambon
