5.0 out of 5 stars House of Eliott - with Murders!
Light and frothy, this little series from the BBC is a delight for fans of crime and costume drama. Diana Rigg sparkles as lady detective Adella Bradley - clearly a woman ahead of her time - who, with help from chauffeur George (Neil Dudgeon) visits friends and country houses where murders just happen to occur.

The pilot episode is 80 minutes long and then...

3.0 out of 5 stars Mrs Bradley Mysteries
The DVD is good fun to watch if you like period mysteries. Diana Rigg brings authority to the mysteries with good inter play with her chauffeur and also in the asides to the audience. Whilst reamaining accurate in the main to Gladys Mitchell's books, for the sake of brevity large numbers of characters have to be excluded. Occasionally you can work out the murderer because...

Why, oh why weren't other episodes made? Think it was shown on T.V. here in Australia, but missed it. So glad had the chance to buy it on DVD. Something different for a change. Easy watching and funny with it!

This is a once in a lifetime Gem of a series.
Brilliant acting from the whole cast.
Very good story-lines.
Costumes are fantastic.
And that wonderful Rolls Royce car - to die for.

I wish more episodes had been made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why no more series?, 5 Sep 2010
This review is from: The Mrs Bradley Mysteries [DVD] [1998] [2000] (DVD)
Cannot understand why no more episodes were made! Good casting ,stories etc. Just being a member of the paying public I often wonder which brain tosses good programmes away and replace them with rubbish as is the case with a lot on TV now. This was a series which could have surely gone on longer than it did.
Different time,different problems but produced well and thoroughly enjoyable.

This review is from: The Mrs Bradley Mysteries [DVD] [1998] [2000] (DVD)
Set in the 1920's, Diana Rigg as the strikingly garbed wealthy divorcee driven around in her Rolls by resourceful chauffeur George - murders guaranteed within minutes.

A 90 minute pilot followed by 4 hour long episodes - throughout, Mrs. Bradley delivering acerbic asides to camera. Many chuckles - as when she sits to endure "The Mikado" at a girls' school. heartily wishing Gilbert and Sullivan had never met. More seriously, there is elsewhere evidence of the lasting emotional scars suffered by those who fought in The Great War.

Leisurely, stylish and enjoyable, music of the period enhancing. It is also fun identifying so many familiar faces - some who seem since to have vanished; others on their way to current fame. (Note, for example, the stable boy seen briefly in Ep.1.) One episode even sports two 'Doctor Who's.

Diana Rigg is always a force to be reckoned with, but Neil Dudgeon as George is not eclipsed. (He destined to succeed John Nettles in "Midsomer Murders".) In fact the partnership works so well, it surprises there is no Season 2.

Make the most of this one then -just sit back and savour!

The series was shown on TV recently but I missed a couple of episodes so I bought the DVD to see the end. Shame they didn't make more as I thought it was great. I love the relationship between the two main characters and also love the actors.
