He is quite possibly the most famous and most recognisable detective of them all –and Universal Playback has the case all sown up for Christmas with Columbo: The Complete Series 1-10 on DVD from 19th October 2009. Cigar-chomping, disarmingly brilliant LA homicide detective Columbo shines in all his shabby glory in one of the most iconic performances in TV history - Peter Falk's crumpled hero won him three Emmy® awards and lasting, worldwide fame.

An unlikely crime-solving genius but foolishly under-estimated by police and criminal alike, Columbo's ability to solve impossible cases makes this classic show so addictive to watch. He has become an enduring and beloved character in popular culture. Forever clad in a dishevelled raincoat and chewing a cigar, Columbo seems as scatterbrained as his appearance would suggest. However, even when it appears that his investigation is going nowhere, Columbo's keen mind is consuming details and clues, until finally and inevitably he reveals he knows everything that's happened.

Each episode famously opens with an ingenious murder, followed by Columbo's investigation and finally his revelation of how he put the plot together. The show was ground-breaking for this clever dramatic device as much for Peter Falk's enchanting portrayal of the detective. Almost every episode begins by showing the crime, so with no "whodunit" element, the plot revolves around how the guilty will finally be exposed.

Peter Falk gave Columbo that unique complacent, distracted air and the deceptive naivety that tricked so many criminals who were just too sure of themselves – lulled into a false sense of security, they incriminate themselves. Genius murderers believing they had committed the perfect crime sometimes even congratulated Columbo before being arrested. Columbo's signature trick is to conduct a seemingly innocuous interview, politely conclude it, then exit the scene – only to return moments later and, scruffy but menacing, ask "Just one more thing ..."

With all ten seasons of this matchless TV classic and a eight page booklet in one remarkable set, now to own, Columbo: The Complete Series it would be a crime not to indulge yourself and your loved ones this Christmas.…
