Trivia

Three of the stories in the original PARTNERS IN CRIME mystery story anthology were not made into TV shows; they were "The Adventure of the Sinister Stranger," "Blindman's Buff," and "The Man Who was No. 16." These stories comprise an ongoing case that spans the anthology. The introductory story, "A Fairy in the Flat" not only has the Beresfords asked to take over The International Detective Agency, but reveals that the agency's former manager, Theodore Blunt, was a part of a spy ring, and the Beresfords are tasked with intercepting coded messages. The three unadapted stories find the Beresfords threatened by various spies and eventually, discovering the identity of agent No. 16. The book ends with them closing the detective agency and Tuppence announcing she is pregnant. See more »

partners in crime is charming
31 May 2006 | by jackknight007See all my reviews

I received (sorry if I spelt it wrong) the DVD collection as an Easter present two years ago. I thought the whole lot was absolutely charming, exactly as i imagined Tommy and Tuppence and all the other characters to be. I think the costumes; especially Ms Annis's (Tuppence's) wardrobe. My own personal favourite episodes are "The Affair of the Pink Pearl" and "The King of Clubs", the one where they dress up as Sherlock Holmes (Tuppence) and Dr Watson.

Although the plots are a bit slow to start, and some of the acting is a bit over the top, I still thought it was charming. I agree with some of the others; ITV should do the other Tommy and Tuppence stories with Francesca Annis, Tommy Warwick and Reese something or other back in their original roles.

It's about time Tommy and Tuppence came back to our screens.

Thank you for reading this
