Was on Saturday. E1 on demand

E2 on Saturday 23rd Oct

We first meet Jean on a rainy Manchester morning, overcome with grief as she discovers that Rory has shockingly died on his way home from their vintage treasure-trove retreat in the South of France.

Heartbroken Jean then makes the dark discovery that all of their money has disappeared, their shop has been re-mortgaged to the brim and their assets have been pawned off.

With the dwindling remainder of thousands in their joint account eventually spent on Rory’s funeral, Jean finds her life thrown upside down. Until her solicitor tells her that her husband luckily did not sell their cottage in the French antiques hub, Saint Victoire.

However, when Jean finds out that the lavish ring Rory was supposed to bring back to her has gone missing, she notices something is wrong and jets off to Saint Victoire. Will she find the answers she’s looking for?

Just seem e1

I liked it but you know blondes is easy to please with tv 😂

Obviously not top quality, but I like a murder mystery that's easy viewing, not too gritty, has light-hearted moments and nice scenery. I've set it to series record.

Shakespeare and Hathaway meets The Mallorca Files Meets death in paradise meets father brown

Basically easy watching mysteries

Blondeshavemorefun Mon 18-Oct-21 19:04:02

Glad I’m not the only one

And 9pm on a Saturday is prime tv viewing !!!

I enjoyed it too.
I abandoned the French Police gore-fest on BBC 4 for Sally Lyndsey.
Was the TV equivalent of "easy listening".
Who is the "other woman" do we think?

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 19-Oct-21 09:35:05

I thought the other woman was the one in pink who stole the ring originally

Who sat by her in the plane who sells houses

I may also be totally wrong 😂

I thought the plane woman might be a bit dodgy as well, could also be wrong!

I think so as well, otherwise it seems a bit pointless.

I really quite liked this, and am going to make a point of watching the whole series.

It's nice to see Sally Lindsey as the prime character for once. She's always just played fairly minor roles in other programmes - until now!

Good luck to her 👍🏻

I also thought that it was "plane woman"-I guess that means no as it was too easy!

WheresThatCatGoneNow Fri 22-Oct-21 15:53:05

The smoking woman with the fiercely painted fingernails, keeping watch on the house from her car made me nervous!shock

She's definitely up to no good, isn't she? hmm

FlatteredFool Fri 22-Oct-21 15:54:57

Oooh I want to give this a go. I love an easy going mystery series.

She was the one who killed her hubby and stole the ring

WheresThatCatGoneNow Fri 22-Oct-21 16:20:43

Yes, Blondeshavemorefun, I guessed that!

But I still want to know who she is!

I bet it's not who we think it is...shock

WheresThatCatGoneNow Fri 22-Oct-21 16:23:55

It might be the insufferably posh woman from the chateau who was complaining about her hamper from Fortnums!

Who knows...!

diddl Fri 22-Oct-21 20:06:55

The husband had a shop didn't he that this oher woman worked in?

Or he was seen about with her-so it must be known what she looks like.

So why haven't we had a pic/description yet?

Because it would give it away to us?

I’ve just watched episode 1 and enjoyed it. Just what’s needed as the weather starts turning miserable.

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 23-Oct-21 14:55:43

Deffo. Just weird it’s on 5 at prime time on Saturday night but wasn’t well advertised

Was by pure chance I saw it

It does feel more like a weekday afternoon thing.
