Hell's bells episode
10 September 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

M C Beaton's popular cozy crime novels are not great literature, but the book series is often witty and almost always enjoyable. They strike a chord with the same demographic that like Grumpy old men/ women, because dare I say, the readers are of the over 50's demographics who find elements of 21st century life absurd and perplexing. Agatha Raisn is a poster girl for the age group and hence the TV series radical departure from the novel is likely to alienate her fan base and unlikely to Make any new friends. It is not just the characters are at least a decade too young, and don't share any characteristics with the originals, however. The single biggest problem is that a whole novel is condensed into a 40 minutes episode that prevents any meaningful plot development. Gone are the source plots twists and false leads that form the basis for a detective story. The episode Hell's Bells was a particular low point, the biggest clanger was when the Bishop and Cardinal arrived to reprimand the Vicar Mr Bloxby. If I were him I would tell them to sod off! What right have they to swan in like Monty Python's Spanish inquisition when they are Catholic clergy (Judging by their vestments) and he is an Anglican minister. Tish tish wardrobe and art direction.
