Stylish, very British mystery with touches of humor...
6 November 2007 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

FELICITY KENDAL and PAM FERRIS are the snoopy gardeners who uncover a dead body in the rose garden and promptly go about solving another crime. ANTHONY ANDREWS has fun with the role of a schoolmaster who refers to his pupils as "little maggots" who can't be left alone for a second lest they turn the classroom into a riot zone.

It's all prettily photographed in English countryside settings that look awfully inviting in color, but the style is so British and everyone talks in that clipped British manner that had me searching for the caption feature after the first five minutes.

It's one of those mysteries that isn't that hard to follow but the characters are pretty thinly developed and the whole story just seems to be a contrivance that doesn't add up to much. Most enjoyable performer is ANTHONY ANDREWS who hams it up at every opportunity.

It's not Christie, but it's fun.
