Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Tending a garden can be a "killer" hobby, but it was often literally murder when professional horticulturalists -- and amateur detectives -- Rosemary Boxer (Felicity Kendal) and Laura Thyme (Pam Ferris) were concerned. Debuting August 31, 2003 on Britain's ITV1, the hour-long mystery series Rosemary & Thyme found its titular heroines running a semi-profitable gardening business. Busy though they were, they always seemed to find time to investigate the various crimes, misdemeanors and murders that occurred with alarming regularity within the rarefied world of plant enthusiasts. Sometimes referred to by its fans as "Murder, They Gardened," Rosemary and Thyme was produced by British whodunit veteran Brian Eastman (Poirot).
