Product Description

Tommy and Tuppence are 'Two Young Adventurers' called upon to investigate and solve a number of sinister and potentially deadly cases. An assortment of characters are involved in the action including a beautiful actress, an arctic explorer, a US Ambassador and countless more. Each instalment follows the newlyweds hot on the trail of missing jewels, poltergeists, secret documents, poisoned chocolates and more. The difficult job is deciphering between the innocent and the unlawful. Available for the first time on DVD and featuring two previously unreleased episodes, Sunnungdale Mystery and The Clergyman's Daughter. Starring Francesca Annis (Reckless, Lillie) and James Warwick (Star Wars: Episode 1- The Phantom Menace).

From Amazon.co.uk

First broadcast in the early 1980s, Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime stars James Warwick and Francesca Annis as the husband-and-wife team of detectives Tommy and "Tuppence" Beresford. Together they zoom around 1920's England in a very posh car and solve all kinds of high-society crimes, from forgery at an exclusive nightclub to the mysterious disappearance of an Arctic explorer's fiancée. The show benefits from two charming lead performances and some wonderful period details--Annis seems to change her hat and her dress every 30 seconds--but it is at best only moderately entertaining.

The years have not been kind to this type of mystery, in which murder is the equivalent of an especially tricky crossword puzzle, offering the amateur sleuths an opportunity to avoid boredom and have a terribly thrilling time. Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple survive both in print and on film, because the central characters are interesting enough to make us forgive weak plotting and a lack of depth, but Tommy and Tuppence don't have the staying power of Christie's more famous creations. Their adventures are fun in small doses, and if you're in the mood for some witty repartee, but otherwise this series is little more than a quaint relic of a bygone age. --Simon Leake
