Editorial Reviews

“Routledge…[is] magic as Hetty.” –USA Today

Patricia Routledge stars as the unlikely sleuth

The beloved BBC detective series seen on public television

Acclaimed actress Patricia Routledge (Keeping Up Appearances) brings her genius for wry comedy and warmhearted drama to the starring role as a housewife turned detective in this popular series.

The late-blooming gumshoe’s uncanny ability to blend in with her surroundings allows her to investigate people from all walks of life, from marauding hooligans to high-society brides. Detective Chief Inspector Adams has come to rely on Hetty for sensitive cases. Hetty is flattered but clearly states her limits: “No sex scandals, no divorce, no drug running, and no industrial espionage.” Still, she finds plenty of excitement in these nine cases solved with the help of her young assistant, Geoffrey (Dominic Monaghan, Lost, The Lord of the Rings trilogy), and devoted husband, Robert (Derek Benfield, Rumpole of the Bailey).

Senior citizen Hetty is determined to account for more than wrinkles. She and spouse, Robert, always in love, sometimes testy begin a detective agency. Robert visits their son in Australia during several of this season's episodes. Geoffrey continues to help get into mystery adventures as a part of the spy business. He falls in love. Hetty loathes unfairness. She wants to straighten out others' lives. Crime without gritty, dark, bloody scenes, but it does have the rare course word and one illegal drug situation. Comes with plenty of humor. Wainthropp Detective Agency is heartwarming.

Regulars: Hetty Wainthropp (Patricia Routledge -`Keeping Up Appearances'); Robert (Derek Benfield -loved him in the early days of `Rumpole of the Bailey'); Geoffrey (Dominic Monaghan -`Lord of the Rings'); DCI Adams (John Graham-Davies); Girlfriend Janet (Suzanne Maddock -`The Bill'); Robert's brother Frank (Frank Mills). To many seasoned guest stars to mention all.

Closed Captioning for all episodes. Just a few guest stars highlighted below.
1- All Stitched Up -Geoffrey & Hetty work undercover for DCI Adams as Irish relation to Maureen (Lill Roughly) is hassled by teens. Other guest stars: Bill Fellows (`Land Girls') and Darren Tighe.
2- Daughter of the Regiment -Hetty must find & stop a photo-stalker of Caroline (Emily Hamilton -`The Grand'; `Nancharro'). Doug is played by Jonathan Coy (`Downton Abbey'; `Hornblower'). Dawn the rich mom by Mel Martin (`Poldark'; `Love for Lydia'; `Pallisers').
3- Serving the Community -Things get personal when Hetty's hired after several Indian restaurant owner attacks. Who? Why?
4- Fisticuffs -A driver has a motor accident due to cell phone use, followed by a fist assault from the other driver (Vivien Heilbron -`Moonstone').
