I've just discovered this amazing show!! I was a little disappointed to learn that the US Region 1 dvds were missing all of the Christmas specials -- I saw a clip of the first one online and it looked really good -- but I did purchase series 1-3. I don't believe the 4th series has been released in the US -- were there more than 4 series filmed?
Having a penchant for miniatures, all I could think about was how neat it would be to recreate JC's windmill. So I was completely blown-away by the scale model of the crime-scene rooms shown in the first episode, The Wrestler's Tomb! ;D

shkrimtare - there have only been 4 full series so far. There have been 3 specials so far: Black Canary (1998 - one of my favourite episodes!), Satan's Chimney (2001) and The Grinning Man (2009). In the UK, Black Canary and Satan's Chimney were released on a single DVD seperate to the series, with The Grinning Man due for release later in the year.
I love Jonathan's windmill, it's full of all sorts of nick nacks!
Thanks for the information, Dave! Maybe when they release Series 4 in the US they'll also release the specials together. It would be a shame not to be able to see/own whatever episodes have been shown.
Someone has uploaded The Black Canary, and I believe a few other episodes, on a site called Veoh but it only allows 5 minutes of viewing -- to see the whole file the Veoh software must be downloaded and though the download is completely free, I was a little leary.
I did see enough of that episode to recognize Kate Isitt from Coupling in the main role -- I'd never seen her in anything else and the person playing her mother played Marilyn in MotG (S4, I think), the role was as a pushy woman on the prowl for a man during the first ball Lexie had thrown as the Laird's wife. ;D
