Hell's Bells (Episode #102H)

KQED 9: Fri, Nov 23, 2018 -- 3:48 AM

With a visit from the bishop looming, a newcomer to the village, Amanda Ballard, has gathered together a group of villagers to practice ringing the bells. Eager to fling herself into the cut and thrust of Carsely village life once more, Agatha Raisin is among their number. And although Agatha and Amanda have struck up a friendship, the same cannot be said for vicar's wife (and Ladies' Society extraordinaire) Sarah Bloxby, who resents Amanda's closeness with her husband Jez.
When Amanda's body is found hanging from the bell ropes of the church in the dead of night, Agatha suspects there may be more to the case than routine suicide. Although Amanda was a spendthrift who'd amassed a great deal of debt, she seemed perfectly happy on the day of her death and in the prime of her life. Finding her suspicions falling on deaf ears, Agatha enlists cleaner Gemma Simpson and former assistant Roy Silver to help her investigate the crime - leading her to confront Jez, who may be harboring a secret, as well as Amanda's ties to her ex-husband in Bristol.

The Walkers of Dembley (Episode #101H)

KQED 9: Fri, Nov 23, 2018 -- 3:00 AM

Agatha Raisin, retired PR whiz and recovering career woman,has settled into her comfortable Carsely cottage, but is still restless to fit in and make her mark among the locals. Still pining after next-door neighbor James, she joins a local ramblers' group, of which James is a member, only to find him becoming entangled in a romantic web spun by rich recent arrival Mary Fortune.
Agatha's life is thrown into further disarray when the body of a militant rambler, Jessica Tartinck, is found bashed to death in a field. A boisterous member of another rambling troupe that runs out of Dembley, Jessica was the chapter's chief agitator, and had amassed her share of enemies, some within the group itself. A concerned member of the group, Deborah Camden, hires Agatha to investigate the death. But the case takes an unexpected twist when Agatha and James are forced to pose undercover as man and wife in the hopes of getting to the bottom of the grisly crime.

The Quiche of Death (Pilot) (Episode null)

KQED 9: Thu, Nov 1, 2018 -- 9:00 PM

Agatha Raisin, having spent years clawing her way to the top of the cutthroat world of public relations, is tiring of the high life. Pining for a more peaceful existence in friendlier locales, she leaves London, opting for early retirement in the picturesque idyll of the Cotswolds. She settles in Carsely - an outwardly sleepy village in scenic surroundings - and attempts to curry favor with the locals, cheating her way into a quiche-making competition with an entry purchased from an urban deli.
But the gambit spectacularly backfires when the philandering judge, Major Andy Cummings-Browne, is found poisoned from a killer quiche. The offending crust? 'Cooked' by Agatha. Finding herself ostracized and shunned in the village, Agatha begins an amateur investigation into the death, applying the skills she would usually reserve for a thorny PR campaign to get at the truth of the matter.
Outspoken, opinionated and never afraid to speak her mind, regardless of the consequences, Agatha shakes up the tranquil world of Carsely, unearthing hidden secrets as she goes. With her cleaner Gemma Simpson, lovelorn local policeman Bill Wong and faithful former assistant Roy Silver in tow, she's determined to wring out the truth - hoping to salvage her reputation, and dreams of a perfect life, in the process.
