The Irish R.M. - The Complete Collection
The Irish R.M. - set in the 1880s, filmed in the 1980s, is now freshly available in a newly packaged boxed set. All three series in the popular Channel 4 trilogy are based on the classic books by the Anglo-Irish team of Edith Somerville and Violet Martin (aka Martin Ross): Some Experiences of an Irish R.M.; Further Experiences of an Irish R.M.; and In Mr. Knox's Country.
Peter Bowles stars in this light-hearted, comic drama series as Major Sinclair Yeates, a retired English army office who becomes a resident magistrate in turn-of-the-20th century Western Ireland.
Living in a ramshackle country house surrounded by the community's eccentric inhabitants, Major Yeates struggles to apply judicial logic in a land where "the inevitable never happens, but the improbable frequently does".

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
