Dalgliesh's on again, off again cold
One thing that always bothered me about this particular production was the fact that Roy Marsden obviously had a bad cold during parts of the filming. His voice is noticeably hoarse in several of the scenes, mainly the ones filmed at the cottage. As the scenes were not filmed in sequential order (as they are not for most movies and TV shows) you end up with him sounding hoarse one minute and perfectly fine the next. It stands out a mile and I am finding it very distracting as I rewatch the series now, just as it did when I saw it many years ago.
