Interesting episode -- part two...
30 June 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

ROSEMARY & THYME fans should enjoy this episode--although I've only seen Part Two. I stayed with it until the conclusion.

Part II doesn't spend as much time in the garden routine as other episodes but has a wider scope including what appears to be an accidental drowning--or was the man pushed? As usual, the two friends go about quietly sniffing for clues and everyone is under suspicion. Principal character called Martin gets the most attention and is well played by TOM BEARD.

FELICITY KENDAL and PAM FERRIS are excellent, as always, and the busy plot will have you guessing "who done it" and why.
