'Agatha Raisin Series One' DVD Review

Agatha Raisin (Ashley Jensen) has been working as a London Public Relations Executive and has grown tired of the hustle and bustle of life in the fast lane. She has always wanted to live a quiet life in a small village but never thought she would actually do it. So one day she ups and moves and life at first is good. The village is having a quiche bake off, so wanting to fit in she decides to enter. Unfortunately she is not the best quiche maker so she stops at the local bakery, picks one up, and enters it. The judges come around to taste all the entries and one judge tastes her quiche and ends up dead.

Agatha is blamed for the death but knows that she didn't do it. She is torn at first at having to admit that she didn't bake the quiche because that would make her a cheater. When you compare being a cheater to a murderer she goes for cheater. Agatha decides that she has to clear her name and calls some of the people that she used to work with in London.

Agatha gets her assistant Roy (Mathew Horne), and her former house cleaner Gemma (Katy Wix) to come to help her. Agatha also gets Detective Constable Bill Wong (Matt McCooey) to give a hand in solving the murder. What's really funny about all this is that Agatha realizes she actually enjoys trying to be a crime solver and that she might have a talent for it.


Acorn brings this comedy/mystery to DVD on October 25th, 2016. The quality of the DVD is excellent and the sights and sounds are wonderful. This is definitely one for your personal library. So don't waste any time and pick one up and find out who used a delicious quiche to commit the crime of murder. Enjoy.
