Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
Two rather frisky young newlyweds make enthusiastic detectives in Tommy & Tuppence: Partners in Crime, a delightful British TV series aired Stateside on PBS's Mystery! Francesca Annis and James Warwick star as the spirited couple, and their first feature-length mystery, an adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Secret Adversary, has them plunging headlong into amateur sleuthing and spying while falling head-over-heels in love. The complex plot involves a missing American girl, a secret treaty, a nascent Bolshevik revolution in England, and the sinking of the Lusitania. In short, the stakes are high. But the pair dive eagerly into the fray, and Tuppence's schoolgirl excitement belies her real bravado and nerves of steel. When Christie reprises these characters in the book Partners in Crime, they are already married, resolving to stave off marital doldrums by becoming professional private eyes. Four of the collection's mysteries are nicely adapted here. "The Affair of the Pink Pearl" offers some classic Christie drawing-room intrigue involving the theft of the titular gem and a coterie of suspects, while "The House of Lurking Death" uses the same structure to tell a more grisly tale involving a box of poisoned chocolates. "Finessing the King" shifts gears as the pair investigates a mysterious personal ad that leads them to a masked ball. And "The Clergyman's Daughter" returns to the drawing-room template as the duo investigates mysterious doings at an apparently haunted house. These are all strong stories, chock-full of suspects and red herrings, but it's the chemistry between Tommy and Tuppence that makes them fly. T & T are eternal amateurs, bouncing ideas off each other at a torrential pace as they plow their way through their cases, all the while radiating a powerful sexual attraction. In the end, it's that happy, stimulating marriage that gives the series its magic.

    It's All About the Clothes and the Period it Represents

    My wife and I find it an evening of dated fun. As My wife says, "It's all about the clothes." The mysteries are mostly silly, but the language and the various artifacts including the cars of the period make this series very entertaining.

    The one thing we like about British mystery is it allows the viewer to sift through the clues throughout the episodes and to attempt to solve the case along with the characters at the end. We are tired of todays instant gratification of knowing who or what the evil entity or guilty party is in the first five minutes.

    Tommy and Tuppence is to be enjoyed with a large bowel of pop corn, some pleasant refreshment and the company of someone with whom you want to share a quiet funfilled evening with.
