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.
