Wonderful BBC series. Felicity Kendal and Pam Ferris are Professional Landscape Designers, plant experts that investigate plant problems and wind up solving a mystery or two. I love this series, I am a plant person, and the stars are older which is refreshing for me, a great mystery unfolds, and wonderful scenery!! Beautiful gardens!! I like this unusual series and I am hard to please.
This series is so much fun! Murder mysteries sprinkled with dry British humor, gorgeous estate gardens, and plenty of wine. Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme are a fantastic team. The shows offer horticultural know-how, gorgeous vistas, multi-suspect "whodunit" plots, and a few tugs at the heartstrings along the way. If you are a British movie/TV fan, keep an eye out for some well-known Brit actors making guest appearances! (I've seen a few from the Brother Cadfael series - another of my favorites.) I am only disappointed that they stopped filming Rosemary & Thyme after three seasons - this show is a keeper.
I love Rosemary & Thyme. They are so much fun to watch - actually watching them is almost like being there with them. They are great mystery solvers. And as my husband has mentioned there is NEVER a show without them having wine ;) I love their British accents. Rosemary especially dry humor. Laura has such a warm jovial personality. I really wish there were more shows. I am so hooked on Rosemary & Laura Thyme!
P.S. The country driving is breathtaking & some of the small communities are so quaint.
This series' only shortcoming is that not enough episodes were produced. I think only about 26, and all but one are < 1hr. BUT - the mysteries are genuine (don't know whodunit till the end, which to me is almost a sine qua non), and the pairing of these two is very human, very endearing. Probably the best mystery series' pairing I've ever seen. Superb music also.
Why then not 5 stars? Well, because of those spoilers 'Midsomer Murders' and "Inspector Morse'. You'll have to check them all out to see what I mean. I am more than happy I bought this set and I only wish I wasn't 80% of the way through it already.
Great fun! My wife and I have had to limit ourselves to watching only two episodes per week in order to prolong our pleasure. True to the British genre of the murder mystery, there are subtle pieces of dialog that delight us Yanks.
