Two women, each have a Life changing experience just before the series starts. Soon they become friends. One a hands on gardener, with a law enforcement back ground Laura Thyme, (Pam Ferris), the other an academic horticulturist with an old four wheeler vehicle Rosemary Boxer (Felicity Kendal).
The programs are of the two trying to find out who dunnit and how. We do not get bogged down in love interests.
Each episode is unique in its approach. The only pattern I see is that it is like in the movie "A shot in the dark" where everyone is guilty except the maid. In this series there may not be a lit of murderers, however there are a lot of guilty people.
Well sit back and enjoy the view, smell the roses, and buy the series so you can watch again and again.
We had already watched most of the series and wanted to have a copy to share with others. The DVDs are of good quality and came quickly.
Frankly, my wife and I prefer stories without swearing, bed-hoping, excess violence or nudity. While not perfect (to our taste) these stories are better than most.
We enjoyed Felicity on Good Neighbors and found this series because she acted in it.
If you are looking for something with fast action or violence, better look elsewhere. But if a quiet who-done-it would suit your fancy, this just might be it.
Overall this is a great collection, there are a total of 23 episodes (if you count the two-parter "Memory of Water" as two separate episodes, otherwise it's 22 episodes). And an eight minute interview with Pam and Felicity.
Pam Ferris and Felicity Kendal have terrific chemistry as two "women of a certain age" who, after each has just gone through life-altering events, become partners in a gardening business, close friends, and two of the most interesting, down-to earth (no pun intended) detectives you'll ever meet. Laura Thyme, newly dumped by her husband, and Dr. Rosemary Boxer, newly dumped by her university, find that they share not only a love of plants, but it seems also a love of uncovering and solving crime in the most unlikely places.
With Laura providing her long, unused police constable background, and Rosemary providing her extensive plant pathology background, they tackle murder in public gardens, monasteries, and private estates while landscaping some amazing locations. And still deal with their friends, families, and lovers (past and potential).
The interview with the two actresses, the photo galleries, actor bios, and the quiz on the special features were good, but even without these extras it's worth it.
