Watching Kavanagh Q.C. On Netflix

Tags: , ,

I love John Thaw. Mike loves John Thaw. We fell in love with this accomplished British actor in the BBC series Inspector Morse (1987-2000), and we watched the series, sequentially, thanks to Netflix.

We wanted more, and discovered Kavanah Q.C., where Thaw plays barrister James Kavanagh. As with most BBC drama, each episode is punctuated with stories from Thaw’s life (wife and two children, who become adults during the course of the series) as well as the lives of his fellow barristers (particularly Jeremy).

Organizing our viewing of “Inspector Morse” was straightforward because each disk was numbered. Not the case for Kavanagh Q.C. (1995-2001), where John Thaw plays a barrister. For anyone else who wants to watch these in order on Netflix, here’s the mapping. Note that two sets are not available on Netflix.

Review episode synopses on IMDB.

If you like John Thaw, you might also like the BBC seriesĀ A Year in Provence, although it was not a well-received as Morse and Kavanagh.

  1. Just a small point: neither Inspector Morse nor Kavanagh QC were produced by the BBC. They were produced for ITV, Britain’s main commercial network, by the regional franchises Central & Carlton. Enjoy your viewing!
