What’s it about
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 M¨¢laga, 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.
