Exclusive! Mischievous marketing wiz-turned-Cotswolds-sleuth Agatha Raisin (Ashley Jensen) returns for another thoroughly entertaining season of solving crimes in unorthodox and amusing ways. Based on the novels by M.C. Beaton. 4 episodes, 6 hrs, 3 DVDs, SDH.
Ep. 1: The Haunted House
Agatha opens her own detective agency, but potential clients aren't exactly breaking down the door of her new office. In search of business, Agatha and James visit Ivy Hall, a house said to be haunted since the English Civil War. Are the strange sounds and unexplained footsteps heard at night truly supernatural, or is someone trying to scare the obnoxious owner out of her home?
Ep. 2: The Deadly Dance
A scathing article in the paper harms Agatha's business, until Charles's wealthy friend hires the agency to investigate death threats against her daughter. After disaster strikes the daughter's engagement party, Agatha enrolls in dance lessons to try to outmaneuver the culprit.
Ep. 3: The Love from Hell
Tensions between Agatha and James run high ahead of a smooth jazz night at Barfield Hall. Then a woman James was seen arguing with turns up dead at Agatha's cottage, and James disappears. Working with James's sister, can Agatha find her love and clear his name?
Ep. 4: As the Pig Turns
To take her mind off her breakup with James, Agatha and the gang venture out to the Winter Fayre, where the highlight of the evening is the roast pig on a spit. The event turns into a crime scene, however, when the main course turns out to be a tattooed human torso. Newly promoted Bill is put in charge of the investigation, but he receives strict instructions not to discuss it with Agatha.
