Editorial Reviews

Mysteries grow around them

Stunning gardens provide the backdrop for this hit British mystery series starring Felicity Kendal (Good Neighbors, The Camomile Lawn) as Rosemary Boxer and Pam Ferris (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Matilda) as Laura Thyme, professional gardeners and amateur sleuths. From their former careers as a university plant biologist and a police officer, Rosemary and Laura bring unique investigative talents to their horticultural and human mysteries.

Locations featured in the series include manor houses in the English countryside; London’s Kew Gardens and Regent’s Park; the French Riviera; Italy’s Ligurian coast; a Surrey vineyard; and the hills of Málaga, Spain. Guest stars include Anthony Andrews, Oliver Ford Davies, Phyllida Law, Juilan Wadham, Margaret Tyzack, and Michael Maloney. Great fun for mystery fans and green thumbs alike! As seen on public television.

Ex-cop, Laura Thyme (Pam Ferris-`Little Dorrit' `Jane Eyre' `Darling Buds of May' `Middlemarch'), is a housewife who loses her husband to a younger woman. Rosemary Boxer (Felicity Kendal-`Edward the King' `Camomile Lawn'), lectures on horticulture, but looses her university job. An odd pairing, which began from very different pasts. Starting a business together makes sense till mystery, sometimes a death, appears around too many corners. Amateur sleuthing once again hits the British TV screen, not new, but this is definitely different. Not just for women. It's good mystery, good criminal policing, and of course beautiful scenic filming (not just England). Even the gardener's will like this action.

SUBTITLES NOW.
This is a re-release set of episodes. However this complete set, the entire "Rosemary and Thyme: Complete", 2011, now has SUBTITLES.

Shows aired originally from 2003 to 2006. They are as contemporary as any today, and just fun to watch. A refreshing different angle to catch the crooks. This complete set is loaded with episodes. An economical way to own the entire series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Parsley, sage... July 29, 2011
Format:DVD
Most mystery series have big tough longtime cops or lovably eccentric oddballs as their detectives.

So it's a bit refreshing to see a pair of utterly ordinary detectives in the light mystery series "Rosemary and Thyme" -- one a cop-turned-housewife, and one a feisty horticulturist. You won't find any mind-blowing mysteries, just solid whodunnits and likable characters... and plants. Lots and lots of beautiful plants.

Laura Thyme (Pam Ferris) has just been dumped by her husband of 27 years, for a "twenty-three-year-old tart!" When visiting an old pal, she encounters plant pathologist Rosemary Boxer (Felicity Kendal) who is promptly fired by her slimy boss. The two wronged women team together to solve a bizarre mystery involving poisonous plants, a car wreck, and a serial killer.

After that, Rosemary and Laura go into business together, treating sick lawns and creating picturesque gardens. But like any good detectives, they keep bumping into sinister crimes, both of the past and present: a spa matriarch is strangled at her desk, skeletons are uncovered in a murdered pop star's garden, and a man is killed in a graveyard... with an arrow.

Things don't improve much in the following seasons -- Rosemary and Laura end up dealing with wrecked romantic gardens, Parisian theft and murder, school pranks gone wrong, Italian restaurants, ferocious competition at a garden show, murder at a vineyard, sabotaged plays and tennis camps.... and even an abandoned baby that may have something to do with a murder.

"Rosemary and Thyme" is notable more for its cozy, cottagey feel than for its intricate mysteries -- but then again, they don't try to be complex or twisty.

I have loved this series from the first time I viewed it. The women are realistic, funny,and work really well together. One of my favorites from BBC and PBS.

The seller was amazingly fast in delivery and the DVDs were in A++++ shape. Have enjoyed them immensely. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rosemary & Thyme: The Complete Collection January 12, 2012
Format:DVD
Rosemary & Thyme is a British mystery series staring Felicity Kendal (Good Neighbors, The Camomille Lawn) and Pam Ferris (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Matilda) as gardening detectives. I first saw Felicity Kendal in Good Neighbors and fell in love with her sense of humor and personality. I was thrilled to find out that she brings that same down to earth personality to Rosemary & Thyme. Rosemary & Thyme was first aired on British television in 2003 and ran until August 2007.

Both women are avid gardeners who are somehow embroiled in a bunch of different mysteries. Laura Thyme (Pam Ferris) is the daughter of a farmer and former police woman who loves her home garden. Her husband recently left her for another woman so she has extra time on her hands. Rosemary Boxer (Felicity Kendal) has a degree in plant pathology and was recently laid off from her University job by her underhanded ex-beau.

The series begins with Rosemary investigating some dying trees at the home of a friend. Laura's husband has just left her for a younger woman and she finds herself in the same hotel as Rosemary. They meet and uncover a plot to kill Rosemary's friend. Rosemary and Thyme consider themselves gardeners more than they consider themselves detectives. The mysteries just happen to occur where they are solving a gardening problem or creating a new garden and they get involved in finding clues for the mystery as well. I love how naturally each of these mysteries unravels. It's very easy to think of these women as *just like you* especially since they are average middle aged women and not your typical Barbie doll style actress. The two women's personalities mesh together perfectly as friends.
