Storyline

Mulberry, the cheerful Cockney son of Death and Springtime, starts his "career" as the Grim Reaper's apprentice when he is sent to collect the acerbic and reclusive Miss Farnaby. He instead joins the staff in her creaky manor house, becomes her personal servant, and endeavors to help her enjoy life during the three month extension grudgingly granted by his dad. What will happen when winter ends and spring arrives? Will life go on? Written by M.Wilson

An empty-lived spinster is visited by the son of Death who instead seeks to fill and fulfill her life.
17 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I, too, found this show utterly charming, funny and heartwarming. Though I had viewed the episodes on Canadian PBS (out of Detroit) over ten years ago, the experience has left a lasting impression on me, inspiring me, too, (as the main character, Mulberry, does) to attempt to brighten the lives of others. Characters are rich, story lines thought provoking and actors play off of each other with great chemistry. What a noble show!--it's needed again in an era of crime dramas which showcase the despicable acts of humankind. I am longing for "Mulberry" to be released on video/DVD, or at least be aired again to that I may tape it. I've requested several times through BBCAmerica for this and hope that many others do as well.
