Kendal and Ferris follow horticultural murder clues...
12 May 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A clever script has the women following a series of horticultural murder clues found in a book describing various plants. They're on assignment to beautify and restore a rock garden with a cascading waterfall.

Trouble is that the revelation of clues is somewhat of a stretch, even for mystery fans who like their clues to be intricate. The fact that Death, Murder, Love and Vengeance are all found in the sort of plants that were used in the garden is a wild card. Nevertheless, FELICITY KENDAL and PAM FERRIS play their roles to perfection and make you believe that the unraveling of clues is possible.

As usual, production credits are all top notch and the performances are uniformly good in typical British style.
