Hetty wakes on her 60th birthday and decides to become a private investigator. With assistance from a teenager called Geoffrey and her husband Robert, combined with her own common sense, Hetty is confident she can solve any case.
With her caustic wit and singular charm, DCI Vera Stanhope and her trusted right-hand man DS Joe Ashworth face a series of captivating murder mysteries set against the breathtaking Northumberland landscape.
Paired with her reliable and devoted chauffeur, Mrs Bradley's finely honed skills of investigation seek out the truth behind the mysteries surrounding a death at the opera, crimes of passion at a circus, poisoning and family secrets.
These TV series are poorly made. I do not mean the technical side, with respect to age of the series and TV format it could be considered satisfiable.
I mean, actors' playing is bad almost for all of them. Sometimes the plot lines are vague and characters are unbelievable.
May be, one of the strong sides is that acting doesn't always look like theatrical performance. We get some interesting views and interiors.
I am not a good reader, so I've considered to watch this version. And I've got nothing. I couldn't assemble the plot, I can't understand the clerical point of view, I do not believe in acting. Just a few personal features and authors statements are well pronounced.
I wouldn't keep this historical TV production in my archive.
