No-nonsense P.R. whizz Agatha Raisin leaves the London rat race to live in the Cotswolds village of Carsely, where local bobby Bill Wong suggests she involves herself in local activities. So she enters the quiche-baking contest at the village fete - and cheats by buying her offering at a London bakery, a secret she shares with Gemma, the cleaning lady she has filched from snooty Sheila from next door. Nonetheless the judge, philandering Andy Cummings-Browne, awards the prize to Ella Cartwright, one of several married women with whom he is cheating on his wife Jo. Next day Andy is found dead after eating Agatha's quiche. Agatha's friend Roy convinces her that, if she wants to make herself truly popular, she must find out who used her as a scapegoat in order to kill Andy and so, using her P.R. methods, she turns detective.

A great disappointment
29 December 2014 | by thestones-567-185580See all my reviews

I had waited with much anticipation to see this TV adaptation of a much loved story. I was happy that Agatha was blond and Scottish as it was Ashley Jensen. However the scriptwriter must have read the wrong book because James Lacey doesn't appear til book 2 and was not the brother of Mrs Parr, the vicar was at least thirty years younger and with a different skin colour. Mrs Bloxby with a different first name did not have an affair with Mr Cummings-Browne. And what was the write thinking when he tried to create a love interest with Bill. Bill is her friend and it is quite heart warming to see a male and female as friends. If the scriptwriter had read the book they would know that Agatha relies on this friendship. Mrs Simpson also seemed thirty years younger with a child and no Mr Simpson! And just the one murder when in the book there was two. I realise that books are adapted but this version bore very little resemblance to the book and was sadder for it. Should Sky commission the Vicious Vet I sincerely hope they get a writer who has read the book and understands that readers will want to be able to actually recognise the story.
