Storyline

On the eve of the village's best kept garden contest many of the entrants' gardens are sabotaged. Shortly afterwards James' other half Mary, a keen contestant, is murdered, following a row between the couple. Since Mary's garden was left virtually untouched Agatha initially suspects one of the other contestants, all of whom hated her, but switches her opinion upon meting Mary's spoilt daughter and sole heir, Beth., being wrong on both counts. However a new lead is opened up on the discovery that Mary used to be a singer and music provides a clue to Agatha solving the murder - and for good measure she also identifies the garden vandals.

It is a plant
9 July 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

A green-fingered mystery as on the eve of the village's best kept garden contest a lot of the gardens are sabotaged and a fast car is running amok while plying techno.

James's new girlfriend, Mary Fortune is found dead planted upside down in a flower pot. Her garden was untouched. James is distraught and Agatha springs into action thinking the fellow contestants might be the suspects and later thinks it could be her spoilt, brattish daughter. James later tells Agatha that he had split up with Mary because she could be so catty.

A better balance of comedy and mystery, some of the supporting cast were right on the button. The show also decided to give Midsomer Murders a two fingered salute as we had two black members in the cast this week including the return of the padre from a few episodes ago. Any more and the English Defence League will have to organise a march through the village!
