Transfer Miss Marple to Bavaria, and this is what you get. Of course, it can't be bad (as long as you like the style of Agatha Christie). The cases that Sophie Mayerhofer has to deal with could just as well appear in an Agatha Christie novel or in "Sophie"'s American counterpart "Murder She Wrote" which was not canceled after only one season.
But somehow, I can understand this. Similar mystery series had their great time in the 80s, and "Sophie" just came out too late. Second, the characters remain indistinct and can't really appeal to the viewers. This is sad because actually the cast is fine: Enzi Fuchs was an excellent choice for the part of Sophie (though she had some rather dumb parts in other TV series), and Jörg Hube as her brother and police commissioner has always been a good actor.
