English cozy, period piece, mystery with humor and a bit of 'cute.'
2 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Mixer is both a crime drama and a charming spoof of the English cozy mystery genre. It is set in London in the 1930s and is about a not very rich member of Britain's upper class. He makes his money by stealing back stolen property.

Instead of stealing for personal gain, The Mixer finds stolen goods and monies, and then reunites them with their rightful owners. He is partnered with his valet, closer to the partnership of Lord Peter Wimsey and his valet Bunter than Bertie Wooster and Jeeves; with a bit of the seriousness of the first and the light humor of the second. Think of an honest (more or less) Raffles, a Raffles with a sense of humor.

Good writing, good acting, and superb costumes and sets make this series a must see for followers of the English cozy, period piece, mystery. If this were made in the USA, it would be rated PG-13 for a few adult situations, but nothing that kids cannot see on TV anyway. My 3-DVD boxed set is a keeper.
