Most of the reviewers here said everything that I could and would say about this series, so I won't be repetitious. I would like to add that I am a strong admirer of most TV shows and movies which emanate from the UK. I don't know why, but they almost always have "meat" to them; and the comedy series are The Best. As for Rosemary & Thyme, I look forward to this show each week--it is like settling down with a good book, a warm afghan and a great cup of tea. I really do love this series; Pam and Felicity are superb in their roles. They make me feel as though I wish they were friends of mine! The locations, too, are just breathtaking.
