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.
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 the help of DS John Bacchus, Inspector George Gently spends his days bringing to justice members of the criminal underworld who are unfortunate enough to have the intrepid investigator assigned to their cases.
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
I don't know what it is about the British, but they seem to have the most entertaining mysteries on television. This one is sort of like the American series, "Murder, She Wrote". Clever female author with a male sidekick but this program takes place in the 1930's. Great acting from Dame Diana Rigg and Neil Dudgeon. This program has everything--drama, a bit of humor and mystery, all in one!!
Great costumes and make-up also. I love this show!!
