Just one more thing...

... Yes, the man in the mac is back! Columbo returns on 30th March with the release of Season 9 on DVD - a must-have for fans of the legend, played by Peter Falk.  

While season 9 of the hit TV series does absolutely nothing to stop us wondering how the fumbling, seemingly slow-witted detective ever manages to solve a crime, it does everything to remind us what we've been missing from our lives! I challenge anyone not to be amazed as each crime is unravelled episode by episode, always resulting it that most infamous of lines, "Just one more thing..."

We could all learn a thing or two from Columbo's method of working - lull your enemy into a false sense of security, act the fool, then pounce with a innocently put question that catches the murderer out when they're least expecting. Even the critics were caught out when Columbo first came onto the scene nine series ago, labelling the programme a "howcatchem" rather than the cliche murder mystery "whodunnit".

If you want to see how he caught 'em, buy Columbo Series 9 on DVD from Universal Playback priced £29.99, on sale from 30th March.
