Trivia

Writers were given the choice of adapting an existing story or to come up with an original idea. Half of the first series were made loosely based on Chesterton stories. The Chesterton stories were set all over the world and at different times, but a decision was made to anchor the stories in a fixed place and time. See more »

Goofs

In one of the episodes a revolver is shown with one empty chamber to demonstrate that one shot was fired. However the casing should still have been there since revolvers do not eject them. See more »

Marvellous nonsense
1 February 2013 | by hilaryonphoneSee all my reviews

This is, as another reviewer quite rightly said: "utter tosh". Well of course it is. It is delightful, fluffy, nonsensical utter tosh and I say Thankyou for that. TV is missing more of this sort of silliness. It is so very easy to watch. If you blink you miss nothing but if you watch it without blinking, it is easy on the eyes/heart/soul. Sunday afternoon by the fire with a hot chocolate cupped in hand...THAT is what this programme is and I for one think they should be applauded for providing this 'niche service' for those of us who like a small slice of comfy 'utter tosh' in our otherwise frantic chaotic troublesome lives.
