I love the BBC radio series with Penelope Keith and Malcolm Sinclair. This show isn't a patch on that. It's different than the books as well, so we've got many varieties of Aggie now. Unfortunately, this is the least interesting of all the versions. A second series is not in the works. No surprise, I'm afraid.

Silly fun. Have no great expectations and you will not be disappointed! I found it relaxing.

I was quite disappointed with these episodes as I am a diehard Agatha Raisin fan. I didn't like the character rearrangements and "new" characters (Charles Fraith, the Bloxbys, Doris Simpson) though I could see it might make better "TV" to appeal to a younger audience. I got used to Agatha but she is supposed to be 50 not 40. If you haven't read the books it would be a fun series.

Funny, enjoyable. Bridget Jones meets Midsomer Murders description is good caption of this series. Looking forward to Season 2.

Loved the books but the DVD series can not compare. Did not capture the Agatha essence.

Plastic characters in absurd, totally unbelievable storyline.

Tremendous fun. Like some other British dramas, this has an intended audience of women over 30, which is a nice break from Hollywood's belief that only people under 20 watch movies and TV. Agatha has finally earned enough money to retire (at about 40, I think) and move to the countryside in a small village. Still running of London energy level, she doesn't really fit in with the cozy atmosphere. Her first mistake is to try to win a baking contest in which the judge is having an affair with the woman who has won the last 5 years in a row. Her second mistake is to not take her leftover quiche home with her.
