One of the great British series. Hetty as a 60 year old who discovers she should be a private detective. She and her husband Robert, rent a flat, try to make ends meet. It's charming, refreshing, interesting and very British. I loved every minute of it.

This is one of my favorite British Mysteries! Categorized as a "cozy mystery" but that is what is so enjoyable about watching it! Patricia Routledge as "Hetty" is perfect and the way she ends up taking on an Assistant Geoffrey Shawcross (played by Dominic Monaghan) is a touching opening episode. And it only gets better from there!
