Recommended viewing: “Rosemary and Thyme: The Complete Series” and “The Midsomer Murders: The Early Cases Collection”

Here are two well written, very entertaining mystery series that I have both recently discovered through the magic of DVD: Rosemary and Thyme: The Complete Series, all 22 episodes of the poplular PBS series starring Felicity Kendal and Pam Ferris, and The Midsomer Murders: The Early Cases Collection, the original 18 two-hour made-for-British-TV movies based on the novels of Caroline Graham.

Midsomer Murders, of course, stars John Nettles (Bergerac) as Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby, who not only has a knack for solving bizarre murders, but meets the most interesting people in the course of his investigations; in Written in Blood, for example, Barnaby encounters a dodgy group of would-be writers, while in The Killings in Badger’s Drift he matches wits with an eccentric woman who… well, let’s just say one look at her, and you can’t help but think of Robin Williams as Mrs. Doubtfire

I had a chance to review both of these collections this week for Talking Television with Dave White. Tune for my complete DVD report beginning at 10:30pm ET, 7:40pm PT on Share-a-Vision Radio
