Storyline

Parish council chairman Robert Struthers is murdered before he can deliver the casting vote on whether Ancombe mineral water company should buy a well in the village owned by Robina Toynbee. Agatha falls for Anscombe's charming CEO Guy Freemont whilst handling his publicity drive and leaves the detection work to James and his wife Mary, who suspect other council members and Robert's old love rival Ron Allen, when Robina is also killed. It is also James who saves Agatha from the real murderer and then makes a confession of his own to her. Written by don @ minifie-1

Lacking a spring in its step
29 June 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

This is the first episode of Agatha Raisin not directed by Geoffrey Sax and it is shown in the style of filming of the whodunit which was rather obvious which also had weaker humour.

The parish council have a heated meeting about a water company wanting to transport their water tankers through the village. The chairman defers his casting vote until the next morning but is found dead later on.

Agatha is persuaded by her friend Roy (Mathew Horne) to end up doing public relations for the water company, a charm exercise to reassure the villagers and she ends up taking her eye of the murder investigation especially as she falls for the charms of the head of the company Guy Freemont who kisses Agatha almost as soon as he meets her.

Well the series is aiming to be an off centre and off beat detective drama and so far has proved to be disappointing. The third episode gets no better. Trying to throw us off the scent by showing a few villagers looking shifty did not work for me.

The humour is rather facile and with a weak mystery this series is certainly going nowhere.
