The Witch of Wyckhadden (#107H) Duration: 44:43 STEREO TVPG

Escaping Carsely after an unfortunate (and potentially mortifying) hairdressing mishap, Agatha books herself into the vast Wyckhadden Hotel to avoid personal embarrassment. The establishment is far from her expectations - a spooky place with eccentric guests. Hoping to put an end to her hair woes, Agatha visits local 'witch' Francie Juddle, but finds herself in the center of another scandal when Francie's body is discovered mere hours later.
With suspicion falling on the various hotel guests - including American tourists Jennifer Stobbs and Mabel Dulsey, the skittish Daisy Jones and permanent resident Colonel Lyche - as well as Agatha herself, news reaches Carsely of Francie's gruesome passing. Bound by duty to their friend, James, Bill, Roy and Gemma journey to Wyckhadden in the hopes of clearing Agatha's name.
Though officially warned off the case by local police, Agatha is quick to sniff out possible motives for Francie's unfortunate murder. And when Francie's daughter Janine appears on-scene with a possible way of unmasking the murderer, Agatha must answer a potentially life-changing question from James.

The Murderous Marriage (#108H) Duration: 44:41 STEREO TVPG

Finally engaged to be wed, Agatha and James' happy day has arrived. All of Carsely has turned out to see the couple get hitched. But the course of true love never did run smooth. Roused by an announcement in the paper, Agatha's ex-husband Jimmy Raisin (formerly presumed dead) unexpectedly gatecrashes the ceremony and makes his presence known, to devastating effect.
A hopeless drunk and living on the streets of London, Jimmy wants money if Agatha is to ensure a quickie divorce and his permanent departure from the Cotswolds. But when Jimmy changes the terms of the agreement (collaring Agatha in the early hours of the morning), Agatha whacks him in the head in frustration. Found dead in a ditch the next morning, Agatha is put in the frame for his murder.
Though emotions between the two have never been at a lower point, Agatha and James must once again join forces if they are to find the real culprit responsible for Jimmy's death. Tracking his recent whereabouts to a drying-out clinic just a few villages over, Agatha discovers some secrets may be closer to home than she previously realized.
