MAIGRET S DEAD MAN (TV)
The second of two feature-length adaptations from the Maigret series, starring Rowan Atkinson, which evokes the distinct atmosphere of the famous inspector's home turf in Paris. 'That shoeless foot looked incongruous lying on the pavement next to another foot encased in a shoe made of black kid leather. It was naked, private... It was Maigret who retrieved the other shoe which lay by the kerb six or seven metres away'. A series of strange phone calls leads Inspector Maigret through the Paris streets towards a man out of his depth amid a network of merciless criminals.
