Whodunnits Done Well

A good friend was reminding me recently of “Murder 1,” the terrific Steven Bochco TV series from 1995 starring a brilliantly multi-layered Daniel Benzali and a deliciously vile Stanley Tucci.

Stanley TucciWow. Great whodunit series. The first story arc was great, although I remember the quality dipped in the second season.

Which got me thinking: What other dimly remembered TV mystery series of the past would readers recommend to their friends?  I’m looking for well-written and well-cast but maybe just a bit obscure (not “West Wing,” in other words; something we’re sorry we missed, not something we’re missing).
