Agatha Raisin: Series One (2016)
Friday 29th July 2016
Following the success of the stand-alone Christmas special Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death (2014), Ashley Jensen (Extras, Ugly Betty) returns as PRguru-turnedamateursleuth Agatha Raisin, in a brand new series.
This exuberant, fun-packed murder mystery features eight stories based on MC Beaton's bestselling novels. Following its run on Sky One, Agatha Raisin: Series One comes to DVD on 1st August 2016, courtesy of RLJ Entertainment's Acorn Label and includes the original feature length movie.
High-flying PR whizz Agatha Raisin has decided to take her foot off the gas. Having spent years slaving away, forging a successful career in London, the forty-something singleton has hit the refresh button and moved on to pastures new. She relocates to the tiny village of Carsely in the Cotswolds, which ticks all the boxes: peaceful, stress-free, easy. However, her hopes of a quiet life are dashed when a spate of murders start occurring in the village. Drawn into the mysteries, amateur sleuth Agatha attempts to solve the crimes, often in a very unorthodox way.
This brand new eightpart series sees the return of Gavin & Stacey's Mathew Horne (Bad Education) as Agatha's best friend Roy. Katy Wix (Not Going Out, The Windsors), also reprises her role as Agatha's cleaner Gemma, while Jamie Glover (Waterloo Road, Holby City) returns as her onoff love interest, James.
Discover the new countryside queen of crime, in this fun and vibrant murder mystery drama.
