"Let's have Stephen Fry playing... oh, a lovable Stephen Fry, more or less, and we'll give him a young sidekick and a faithful female retainer. He can have a distinctive old car to drive, like Morse or Inspector Lynley, and we'll set the whole thing in a quaint old English location. Where haven't we had? Oh, and we'll put in some other recurrent 'characters' for comedy and colour. We'll go for the category 'slightly whimsical comedy drama'..." Something akin to the above must have been the creative process, if such we can call it, behind this painting-by-numbers series. British TV has churned out many like it before. It wouldn't surprise me to find that there is a computer program that automatically generates formats like this.

Stephen Fry can doubtless do the series without breaking the slightest sweat. The brightest spark is Karl Davies as the sidekick, though, to judge from the first three episodes, he has a strange clause in his contract requiring him to be submerged in water every week.

Tony Slattery's character and the deranged sister are so irritating that they may yet send me screaming from the room. I doubt I'll be the only one.
