Storyline

In order to make ends meet, and to stop a local teenage runaway from becoming a juvenile delinquent, Hetty Wainthropp, a sprightly and intelligent 60-year-old pensioner looking for a new challenge, decides to become a private investigator much to the chagrin of her unemployed husband. Once she makes up her mind, she becomes an unstoppable force, and, led by Hetty, the three set forth to investigate crimes of less interest to the local police force in and around their little village in the beautiful Lancashire countryside.

Brilliant drama
19 April 2003 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This drama was brilliant, all the actors in it gave brilliant performances, this was pure english drama which for some reason finished without a trace, why was it axed it should be brought back. Patricia Rouledge is brilliant just like she was in keeping up apperances. best mystery drama in years.
