TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 26 July 2011
The light, period mystery drama is one of the things that British television does best. Set in the 1930s with very good costuming and period atmosphere and great acting from Dame Diana Rigg and Neil Dudgeon. The Mrs Bradley Mysteries are based on the novels by Gladys Mitchell and were written in the 1930s so have a natural authentic flavour. Adela Bradley, criminologist and amateur sleuth, solves murders with the assistance of her chauffeur, George. An amusing device of the series is the asides from Mrs Bradley to the camera, which often highlight the comedic elements of the story. In all a gentle, amusing series similar in style and content to Agatha Christie's Poirot, without gratuitous violent or bad language.
What a shame the BBC dropped the series after only five episodes as the author produced over sixty Bradley novels and stories. In 1999 after some debate the powers at the Beeb decided that the series was too sophisticated for the popular TV market and the public were not ready for some of the more racey Mrs Bradley Stories.
