Agatha Raisin’s on TV!

If you don’t know M.C. Beaton‘s feisty, gloriously non-pc PR maven-turned-amateur sleuth, Agatha Raisin, you should. She solves many a murder (and falls desperately for many a man) in the cozy Cotswold village of Carsely, which isn’t quite as peaceful as it seems.

Readers familiar with Agatha’s adventures can now watch them on the small screen in the Acorn TV series “Agatha Raisin.”

The first episode, “Agatha Raisin and the Quiche of Death,” airs today (watch it right here!) and every following Monday on Acorn through the end of September (Acorn is available through Apple TV, Roku, and Samsung). “Agatha Raisin” will start airing on select PBS stations in 2017.

The New York Times even did a write-up about actress Ashley Jensen and praised the show: “…armed with a P.R. storyboard and some chutzpah, a wine-swilling, man-lusting, thoroughly modern Miss Marple is born in this adaptation of M. C. Beaton’s merry mysteries.”

Viewers turning to the books can start with the TV tie-in edition of INTRODUCING AGATHA RAISIN, an omnibus of the first two titles in the series, THE QUICHE OF DEATH and THE VICIOUS VET. Readers will have plenty to enjoy after that—the 27th book in the series, PUSHING UP DAISIES, is available September 20, 2016.
