Product Description

All four episodes, plus the 90-minute pilot, of the BBC murder mystery series starring Diana Rigg as the irrepressibly inquisitive Adela Bradley. Paired with her reliable and devoted chauffeur, George (Neil Dudgeon), Mrs Bradley's finely honed skills of investigation seek out the truth behind the mysteries surrounding a death at the opera, crimes of passion at a circus, poisoning and family secrets. Her powers of psychological sleuthing are challenged to the full, but Mrs Bradley's supreme intuition is always triumphant in the end.

Format: DVD
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 there are 4 other 55 minute stories, each complete. A feast for the eyes and ears, the period detail and music of the roaring 1920's, are spot on and although the crimes themselves are portrayed in a less than serious way, the solutions are good and the clues well placed.

Adella's little asides to the camera - usually on the subject of marriage and men in general - add to the feeling for the viewer of being 'in' on a close chums adventures - and the cast is littered with well known British actors including Peter Davison and David Tennant.

If you like Marple and Poirot this little series will fit nicely into your dvd collection and will provide suitable viewing for the whole family. Pity more were not made - Gladys Mitchell wrote many books which could have been adapted - but I imagine that the cost involved would perhaps worry the BBC accountants.

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?

"The countryside? A place where the birds and animals wander about uncooked." That's Mrs. Adela Bradley speaking. The mystery is titled Speedy Death, the first of five in this set. The place is an English country manor home. The time is the 1920s. And the who include an old friend of Mrs. Bradley, the wealthy Alastair Bing; his daughter Eleanor, who is Mrs. Bradley's god-daughter, confined to a wheelchair since an auto accident two years earlier and who will come into a fortune when she marries; Eleanor's fiancee, Everard Mountjoy; his son, Garde; Garde's best friend (who was driving when Eleanor was crippled), Bertie Philipson; and Garde's house guest, Dorothy Manners. Of course, there are assorted servants as well as Mrs. Bradley's chauffeur, George Moody (Neil Dudgeon). George is big, capable man who dislikes boredom as much as Mrs. Bradley does.

Adela Bradley (Diana Rigg) is a wealthy woman of a certain age, a divorcee, a psychoanalyst, a catcher of criminals, a woman who drives about in a Rolls Royce, enjoys cocktails, is skeptical about many things, especially love and husbands, and who some might say is, in one of the great descriptive words of the Twenties, louche. "I'm never entirely sure if I'm famous or notorious," she confides to us in one of her asides spoken into the camera. "Someone once said famous is to live in poverty and end up as a statue. Naturally, I prefer to be notorious."

Little does Mrs. Bradley realize that during her weekend at the Bing estate, where Eleanor's engagement to Mountjoy will be formally announced, she will encounter murder. That's in addition to calculated emotional manipulation, pre-planned adultery, psychotic obsession and a shocking discovery that takes place in a bath tub.

As the two previous reviewers have said, this is a great series for those who like period mysteries such as the Poirot and Lord Peter Wimsey productions. But beware - there are only 5 episodes in total:

1. Speedy Death
2. Death at the Opera
3. The Rising of the Moon
4. Laurels are poison
5. Worsted Viper

In the UK (i.e. Region 2), the BBC have released all five episodes on this two-disk box set (with no extras).

In America the first, feature length, episode - Speedy Death - was released separately. There are therefore TWO US boxed sets - but still only the same 5 episodes:

Qne is called "The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries," but it only includes episodes 2-4 inclusive plus a few extras.
The other is called "The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries Series 1", which includes "The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries" plus "Speedy Death" on a separate disk (and the same extras).
