  • Maigret has waited for years to catch a top Paris criminal, who is also a successful restaurateur. But his patience is finally about to pay off.

    8.0
    This was the first episode in the revived "Maigret" series, with Michael Gambon perfectly cast in Rupert Davies's old role (and, unlike Davies, wearing the moustache specified in Simeon's novels). To mark the occasion, the episode ran for an hour and a half, instead of the hour that the other segments occupied. The notion of filming the series, firmly located in the 1950s, in Hungary instead of France (the Paris of Simeon's novels was deemed to have changed too much) proves not too bothersome, and the episode scores in demonstrating Maigret's quiet wit and utter unflappability when faced with his ruthless opponents. After dining at the villain's posh restaurant, Maigret is pressed for a compliment by his over-confident foe, and, after a long pause for consideration, murmurs, "The moules were... passable." He knows he's going to win.moreless
