Storyline

Set in the leafy suburbs of 1950s London, the Beresfords find themselves in need of some adventure in their lives. With Tommy undertaking a variety of business opportunities, and Tuppence trying to dissuade him, the couple find themselves in the wrong place at the right time to solve a mystery - or two - and perhaps save someone's life. They are about to enter a world of espionage and skulduggery guided by Tommy's mysterious Uncle, Major Carter. It is a world which will prove easier to enter than to leave.

Loved the Series and Want More
25 October 2015 | by feussamySee all my reviews

I'm disappointed that so many did not enjoy this series. I love Walliams and wish he were in more dramas. (Remember his great supporting character in The Body in the Library; Agatha Christie's Miss Marple?). I'm not that familiar with Raine but I thought she sparkled in this comedy/mystery. Along with Steer as the handless chemist they make a great ensemble. It appears some were disappointed because this was not a serious, grim show. Granted it was not Tinker, Tailor Soldier but I can't believe it as supposed to be. I gave it a 9 because the plots could be better but as a vehicle for these wonderful characters it worked.
