Do I need to buy a boxed set to watch the early ones, or can I jump straight in to series 7?
To really appreciate the action, you need to know the history. Unlike Corrie, or Emmerdale, or almost any other soap, what happened in previous series impacts what you see now.
I would certainly go for a box set of series 1, and see if you like it. If you don't, not much lost. If you do, then go for more. It may take you a little time to get to grips with Dexter and his 'dark passenger', but you will appreciate later series if you start from the beginning.
Please let us know what you think.
