I can't begin to understand how I missed this show when in was on the BBC in the late 90's. It is sooooo good. I've always loved anything to do with Poirot, Mrs Marple and all that stuff... but I feel Mrs Bradley might be in a class of her own, you can't help but loving her.
A snooping old lady, quite different from Christie's Marple, Mrs Bradley is a rich and confident woman, a feminist avant-la-lettre. Diana Rigg is excellently cast as the intellectual Adela Bradley. She carries the role very well. The costumes, the settings, the ambiance,... it's all very much what one would come to expect of a BBC production.
I blame myself that there have never been more episodes of this gem. Apparantly the ratings wheren't quite all that so it ended after just five shows. If I had just watched it, I could have made a difference. Maybe if we buy enough of the dvd's they'll change their mind and make a new series?
