On 12 May 2006, ITV announced that the third series was the last, due to savings. Two stories were in preparation for shooting in Portugal when the ITV Network Centre decided to cancel plans for a fourth series. Carnival hopes that the show might someday be picked up again by another channel. See more »
I just adore this show! I find the stories smart & clever, and the two main characters, Rosemary & Thyme, extremely entertaining, and likable. It is nice to sit back and watch a murder mystery without all the obvious gore that can come with it.
I must also mention, the background scenery is fantastic! I feel as if the backdrops are as much a steady character in the show as are Rosemary & Thyme. With this I am learning a thing or two about horticulture which in turn is making me want to jump into gardening with my Sherlock Holmes hat & pipe!
I am a youngster...(35 years old)....so it's not just for those who might be considered it's ONLY demographic. If you enjoy good murder mysteries with a dash of clever fun, then this is a must for you to check out.
