Ultimate Documentary On John Wycliffe

About W. Burley was born in Falmouth, Cornwall. Before he began writing, he was employed in senior management with various gas companies, before giving it up after the Second World War when he obtained a scholarship to study zoology at Balliol College, Oxford.

After obtaining an honours degree he became a teacher. He died at his home in Holywell, Cornwall, on 15 August John Burley had his first novel published when he was in his early fifties. His second published novel, two years later, saw the appearance of Superintendent Charles Wycliffe.

Over the next 25 years Burley produced another seventeen Wycliffe books and five other books. Then, late in , one of Burley's Wycliffe stories appeared on television in a pilot starring Jack Shepherd. The pilot was followed by 37 episodes broadcast over a five year period. By the author was, for the first time in his life, financially comfortable.

He was over eighty. But the success of the television series meant that John Burley found himself overshadowed by his creations.

To the public, the name Wycliffe brought to mind the unsmiling face of Jack Shepherd, the actor. Even in the bookshops it was Shepherd's face that dominated the covers of Burley's paperbacks. John Burley, however, continued to write and produced a further four Wycliffe titles. He was working on his 23rd Wycliffe novel, Wycliffe's Last Lap, when he died in Though author Burley got a relatively late start on his writing career publishing his first novel at 51 , he was prolific and continued writing until his death.

In doing this I thought I might help fill a gap that was left in the market by the gradual disappearance of the traditional whodunnit. You can stream all five series of Wycliffe with a BritBox subscription.

Fans of the dark and atmospheric detective series Vera will be pleased to know there are 8 novels in the series with more continuing to come out every so often. Vera is the creation of Ann Cleeves, who has also created another series that might be familiar — the Shetland Island Mysteries now a TV show, Shetland. Amazingly, the tone of the show and movie manage to be quite similar despite the different mediums.

Cleeves has managed to create stories that manage to be both dark and also sort of cozy though they're definitely not cozy mysteries. I think much of that can be attributed to the characterization and Brenda Blethyn's outstanding interpretation of what Cleeves has written. Given that the novels are quite lengthy, you get a much deeper experience through the reading — to the point that some may even find them a bit slow, especially after the pace of the television show.

That can be good or bad, depending on the type of novels you enjoy.
