Packed with period atmosphere and playful banter, Partners in Crime follows Tommy and Tuppence Beresford as they mix marriage and mystery solving. As proprietors of Blunt’s Detective Agency, the flirtatious and fun-loving couple investigates cases that range from a purloined pearl to the disappearance of an Arctic explorer’s fiancée.

Francesca Annis (Cranford, Reckless) is luminous as high-spirited Tuppence, elegantly attired in fabulous 1920s fashion, and James Warwick (Lillie) charms as dry-witted and dapper Tommy. These 11 mysteries follow the pair from their first meeting through their final cases.

Improved with subtitles added. Film and 10-episode TV series in ONE. Agatha Christie crimes with Tommy and Tuppence as investigators. The opening story is the feature film that shows the beginning of this sleuthing set. It’s all a magnificent British Roaring 1920s costume mystery COMPLETE series that also includes 10 TV episodes. Beresford’s, T&T, are the duo solving Christie short story tales. A funny, likable, proper British sleuthing duo, much like Agatha Christie’s Poirot but as much humor as mystery. FUN!The regular cast is Francesca Annis…

Lighthearted British Mystery, Romance, Comedy BBC mystery series shot circa 1983 and set in 1930’s…….wonderful series and very well written and acted…sets and costumes are great as well….I believe there are 11 separate but linked stories in the complete set…make sure you get WHY DIDN’T THEY ASK EVANS? which more or less introduces the characters and on which the rest of the series is based. Story line revolves around a husband and wife team who solve mysteries. This is one of my favorite BBC mysteries along with Poirot, Midsomer,…

Wally Richardson says:

Wonderful Vintage Series It is wonderful to watch a series which was written by one of the greatest mystery writers of all times. The acting is superb and a joy to watch. Call me old-fashioned but there is no cussing or swearing and that is like a breath of fresh air in these times.
