Series One (Discs 1-3)
Laura Thyme, a former policewoman and garden-loving housewife, has just lost her husband to a much younger woman when she meets Rosemary Boxer, a plant biologist who has just lost her university teaching post. A suspicious death brings them together, and they combine their gardening skills and natural curiosity to dig deeper. Despite the success of their first “case,” Laura and Rosemary hope their blossoming friendship will lead to gardening commissions, not detective work. But mysteries have a habit of following them around in this appealing series that combines two British specialties: gardening and mystery.

Series Two (Discs 4-6)
Exotic gardens on the French Riviera and Italy’s Ligurian coast complement beautiful backdrops in London and the English countryside as Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme take on an array of new gardening commissions. Intent only on solving puzzles of nature, they stumble upon mysterious crimes when they unearth tensions, secrets, and the occasional dead body. The second installment of this hit mystery series begins with a double episode followed by seven regular episodes. Restoring a walled garden and surviving the cutthroat world of a TV garden makeover show are among the challenges they face.

Stunning locations at home and abroad provide the backdrop for this hit British mystery series starring Felicity Kendal and Pam Ferris as professional gardeners and amateur sleuths. From their former careers as a university plant biologist and a police officer, Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme bring unique investigative talents to their horticultural and human mysteries. Their unobtrusive presence in the garden gives them unique access to secrets other detectives might miss—and that murderers would rather not reveal.

I bought this collection because I generally like BBC or other British series that have to do with mystery (I don't like ones like Downtown Abbey because they are soap operas that never end.) These stories are fun, but shallow and all of a sudden are solved. I like to think about them for a while. However, the acting is good and characters entertaining and if you like to look at beautiful gardens the view is excellent from my arm chair.

I've never seen a mystery series centered around gardeners. This series is original with beautiful scenes and gardens. The plants and flowers are gorgeous. The acting is high quality, too. I'm sorry that more episodes weren't made. I bought this series from the Acorn catalog and liked it so much that I purchased two more sets for friends and they each loved it, too. I'd never heard of Rosemary & Thyme before and I'm happy to own the series. Now I can enjoy the beautiful gardens and great acting whenever I want to. I love flowers and bought this sereis because of the description I read. Thank you Acorn Media.

This was a collection of mysteries for someone with time on their side and not a whole lot else to do with their time but enjoy a set of movies that require little or no thinking to get in your way of entertainment. Not up to more serious writers like Agatha Christie standards but overall quite enjoyable.

I already owned a set of Rosemary & Thyme. My wife would explain what I couldn't understand (I'm very hard of hearing), and we both enjoyed this series. When this remade version of Rosemay & Thyme came out, I saw it had a subtitle option for Deaf or hard of hearing (SDH). I immediately bought it. After watching this, we have noticed other improvements, such as higher quality picture, better sound, a menu to select episodes, scenes, etc. Plus, we think they added at least one additional program not on the original set. Magnificent! This is a great "non-violent" murder mystery series and a tour of some great English gardens.
