I’m beyond excited about this, truly.
The Agatha Raisin books are a guilty pleasure of mine, and the annual release of a new book is keenly anticipated.
So put yourself in my shoes, and imagine the delirious joy I am feeling knowing actress Ashley Jensen will soon be portraying the grumpy ex-PR hack turned private detective!
OK, Ashley is blonde, and slim – a far cry from the more portly brunette that is book Agatha – but her comic timing will, I’m confident, bring the taciturn detective to life on television.
You can watch the trailer here:
Sadly for those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, we’ll have to wait for the likes of the ABC to acquire it, as it is only screening in the UK this Christmas.
I’m certain, however, it will be worth the wait – after all, it has Agatha creator Marion Chesney’s (aka M.C. Beaton) blessing!
