Review

If, like me, you enjoy whodunnits with a spooky edge, then the opening half-hour of this latest mystery will delight. First, we get Aggie finding an effigy of herself with a noose around its neck pinned to her door. Then, mythical fairies appear to be manifesting around a gloomy well.

Unfortunately, the story ultimately loses conviction and we end up getting the usual runaround, with Agatha hiding under a bed and sneaking under windows as she searches for clues following the killing of a local toff. Oh, and there’s an actual fart joke. In a primetime drama made in 2019. Also, why does Agatha bother with Charles Fraith (Jason Merrells, doing a ding-dong Leslie Phillips routine)? He’s a total sleaze.

Summary

Part one of two. Looking to get away for a few days ,Agatha rents a cottage in a Norfolk village where mythical fairies are said to live. Before she can start relaxing, however, she is employed by a local woman to prove that her wealthy husband is having an affair, but it soon turns into a case of murder. Mystery, starring Ashley Jensen.
