Campion was a BBC TV crime series that ran for two seasons from 1989 to 1990 starring Peter Davison as Campion. The series was an adaptation of the Albert Campion mystery novels written by Margery Allingham (list at bottom of gallery). Eight of the books were adapted, four in each series and Penguin Books re-published the books with TV-themed covers, shown below in series/episode order. In addition there was at least three trade-size paperbacks published by JM Dent & Sons in 1992 with a TV themed cover (Thanks to Roger Merry for bringing this series to my attention).
