I think you're right Cassa. They probably din't have a picture of him from the third series and they thought no one would know the difference, but little did they know you can't fool us fantastic Columbo fans for one minute!
It's the same on the Series 1 DVD collection, they've used pictures of Peter which look like they were done in the mid to late 90s.
The shot on this cover looks like it's from the late 80s.
I like the backdrop though..not quite sure what the point of it is, but it looks good...
yeah....what is that behind him anyway?....does anyone recognize it?
