Movie Reviews

She's back in form.......
Dianne Foster | USA | 01/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, I love Hetty and as soon as Acorn releases a new set I am the first in line to buy it. So...I have purchased my new Series III and I love it. Three volumes (disks) and nine new episodes.

This set includes:

1/ All Stitched Up -- When a delinquent terrorizes a neighborhod, the police are helpless as frightened victims refuse to testify against him. Posing as the Irish sister-in-law of one of the residents Hetty infiltrates the local quilting circle to get the lowdown. Di's comment: Only Hetty could infiltrate a quilting circle.

2/ Daughter of the Regiment -- A military wife hires Hetty to identify a mysterious photographer who is stalking the woman's daughter. Tipped that an Australian is involved Hetty and Geoffry go undercover as 'Aussies'. Di's Comment. One of my favorites, stars Mel Martin.

3/ Serving the Community -- A leader in the local (jacket says 'Indian', but I believe they were Pakistani immigrants and their families) recruits Hetty to investigate a string of muggings and then Hetty herself is mugged! The plot thickens when Robert becomes the recipient of stolen goods.

4/ Fisticuffs -- After a minor fender-bender involving two women, one lets the other have it and zips off in her red Alfa Romeo. The battered victim as Hetty to help her identify her assailant. Geoffrey tracks down the Alfa and meets Janet, the mechanic who has been working on the car.

5/ Childsplay -- A quick visit to relatives turns into a longer stay for Hetty when her young nephew gets expelled from school for drug possession. Hetty enlists Geoffrey to infiltrate a suspicious gang led by a schoolyard bully named Bomber.

6/ Pursuit by Proxy -- Hetty is hired to track down a bankrupt furniture owner. The job is complicated by her meddling brother-in-law, Frank, who has come to stay and insists on "helping" the agency while Robert is away visiting their son in Australia.

7/ A Minor Operation -- Hetty is in the hospital recovering from surgery on her varicose veins. Meanwhile DCI Adams is keeping an eye on an ailing prisoner. Hetty goes into action from her hospital bed when the DCI is accused of sexual harrassment.

8/ Helping Hansi -- A German pensioner asks Hetty to track down his sister,whom he last saw during the war when she was escaping to England. When Hetty visits Hansi in the nursing home, she discovers he is being cruelly taunted by the other residents.

9/ How Time Flies -- Frank finally takes his leave and treats Hetty to a day out at a local steam railway museum as a parting gift. A frantic call makes it a working trip.
