Rosemary And Thyme – Detectives With Green Thumbs

Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme are soft-boiled detectives to be sure, but the viewer will be in store for a rollicking ride with boundless twists and dead ends in their pursuit of  murder amongst the foxgloves and if Clive Exton (writer) is involved  it will be paired with  an underlying human foible comedy of errors.

CORRECTION – STEPHEN GALLAGHER was the sole writer for this episode – Wow, I watched it again, Love your work Stephen,  please accept my apologies for the writing credit error!

My DVD  rec. is   ” The Cup of Silence ”  Series 3 volume 3.

An old hotel and winery that  is working to get its reputation back on the wine and food circuit, competing brothers, a wedding planner, B movie aficionados- oh ,the list of suspects goes on…

Full of laughs and final resolutions that speak of how in life… friendship and  mad scientist ingenuity is really all you need,

Check it out.
