Editorial Reviews

The brash British crime-fighing duo of Ash and Scribbs--Kate Ashurst and Emma Scribbins--are back in fine cheeky form in the second series of Murder in Suburbia. The BBC series is unlike any American crime procedural, partly because of the comely and very real young women detectives who play the leads--they're slightly neurotic, their love lives are messy, and they actually admit to getting rattled when solving creepy cases. But their focus and offbeat crime-solving methods nearly always save the day. The series is as enjoyable for the banter between the two as for the actual crime plots involved. The episode "Witch," for instance, centers on a murder of a student at an exclusive country school, and draws Ash and Scribbs into not only an unsettling clique of witchcraft practitioners, but forces them to relive some of their own not so ideal high school days. Dry humor as much as their ingenuity saves the day. Scribbs: "Do you think there's some kind of IQ test you have to fail to be come an estate agent?" Ash: "Yeah. It's the same test all my ex-boyfriends failed." --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

The complete second series of the BBC America mystery hit

Caroline Catz and Lisa Faulkner return as the cheeky police detectives Kate "Ash" Ashurst and Emma "Scribbs" Scribbins, still cracking wise as they crack six all-new cases in the tony British ’burb of Middleford. "Let me see," observes one of their adversaries. "You must be the blonde, dizzy, but at the same time practical, down-to-earth one." (That would be Scribbs.) "And you’re the dark, intense, ever-so-slightly neurotic one." (That would be Ash.) "Just one question—who does the jokes?" Actually, they both do, skewering middle-class mores while solving all manner of baffling mysteries. Their bemused boss (Jeremy Sheffield) keeps his charges under a loose rein—so long as their unorthodox style leads to closing cases.

Join Ash and Scribbs on their suburban beat, and see why their unique blend of humor and chutzpah has won legions of devoted mystery fans on both sides of the Atlantic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish there was more of this series. March 15, 2008
The more we watched of this, the more entertained we were. We had just finished watching the Inspector Linley series, which is pretty intense and serious in comparison. It took us a while to adjust to a more humorous and not so intense a series. We wish there was more Murder in Suburbia!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great comedy and detective stories at the same time November 16, 2008
By Mr. Mac
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We watched some of the first programs and BBC then purchased Sets I and II and are greatly disappointed that they have been apparantly cancelled. The two main characters are wonderul foiles for each other as the appear as different as night and day, except for their impossible love lives that never work out. In the meantime, there is a hidden "romance" with the boss that creates some wonderful moments like the "timed" very long kiss on a stakeout or ranting about the boss' latest girlfriend who is not a girlfriend while he is listening. In the meantime there is a case to solve. The cases involve vivid portraits of the wayward ways of the rich in suburbia as well as the struggling middle class facing mundane problems like getting children into the right schools, blackmail, and murder. Lisa is a wonderful "blonde" who solves many cases in her own inexplicabe way. Highly recommnded. These are great entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Good Season with Ash and Scribbs! April 8, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good series from across the pond... This is the 2nd season DVD of the British series which follows the cases of Detectives Kate Ashurst "Ash" and Emma Scribbins "Scribbs". Ash and Scribbs are a very good team and there is good interaction and humor between them and with their boss as they solve the crimes that come across their desks in the upper middle class town of Middleford. Each show captures your interest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not classy, but fun! October 18, 2008
Not classy like BBC mysteries or something, but a lot of fun. Not too many chances for Americans to see regular suburban Brit neighborhoods--TV usually shows villages or the city. The mysteries are kind of slight, the fun is in the interactions of the two main characters who tend to be unlucky in love. The humor is everyday fun altho. there are some over the top characters (crazies) in most episodes. None of it is really believable, I'd be extremely worried if this were my police dept., but I found this set fun diversion when I wanted something light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and clever. March 29, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I can watch Scribbs and Ash over and over again. I was so sorry that the series only last for two seasons. I always wondered why. The writing was witty, amusing and clever. The relationship between the two characters was great. I also love watching how the British handle crime without weapons.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Fun. March 27, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is not "Prime Suspect", it wasn't written by Agatha Christie or given a big budget by PBS or the BBC. It is more lighthearted, along the lines of "Castle". I found Caroline Cates and Lisa Faulkner to be engaging as the leads and enjoyed their bantering. The writing is improved over Season 1, which wasn't really bad to begin with. Like many shows these days it was cancelled just as it seemed to be hitting it's stride. I would have enjoyed a season 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great British import March 21, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved this British version of Cagney and Lacey. The stories were fresh, very much today, and the squad room was comparable to any American squad room of detectives

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable
British TV shows always have a slight off kilter feel, which for me adds to the entertainment. I enjoyed this whole series the two leading actresses were a hoot.
