blanche-2 from United States
12 November 2011
It's time for the wild moving carnival that goes from street to street
in London, and someone is threatening the organizers with death and
mayhem in "Anna Lee: Diversion," another entry into the short-lived
series starring Imogen Stubbs. Brierly, the detective agency for which
Anna works, is asked to look into the threats, though the organizers
believe the threats are coming from a man who wants to exploit the
carnival and make it a big money proposition. Eventually the
investigation focuses on, of all people, Beryl the secretary (Sonia
Graham) and her brother (Tenniel Evans), who has a small cafe in the
heart of the carnival district.
Here we meet Anna Lee's sister (Sally Baxter) and Anna's adorable
nephew Matthew (Jack Shute) who loves his aunt's adventurous life.
Anna's neighbor Selwyn (Brian Glover) is on hand as the one who will
drive the carnival around on a lorry, if he can get back to using one.
This is an exciting and fun show. I still can't understand why, with
the beautiful, vivacious Stubbs and such a good and likable cast, "Anna
Lee" didn't have additional seasons.
