Storyline

Mrs. Adela Bradley could be described as the naughty version of the rather dull Mrs. Marple: a quintessentially English lady sleuth, before the war, upper class, rich enough for a Rolls Royce with private driver (George Moody, her hunky and faithful assistant in nearly everything), a real socialite, always on the road, sassy, even provocative, an arrogant suffragette. But her sharp sense of observation and deduction still gets the better of the criminals every single time. Written by KGF Vissers

17 August 2004 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I dismissed this series as shallow when it first came out. Maybe I was dazzled by the settings and costumes and didn't stick with it (though I love mysteries). I've just seen several repeats and I'm hooked. Mrs Bradley and George Moody are real, 3-D characters.

Much is suggested but not said. Rigg and Dudgeon are wonderful actors (also Phyllida Law in one episode) and Rigg has all the style of her Avengers days. Only Peter Davidson's character seems a little colourless. The plots are preposterous (the worsted viper????), but who cares? Why are Gladys Mitchell's books out of print? (By the way, folks, it's set in the 20s, not the 30s. The helmet-like cloche hats and waistless short dresses should be a clue.)
