Awful. Absolutely awful. I just don't understand how you can 'adapt' a novel and change pretty much everything about it. Equally, I assume Walliams had never been anywhere near the books since his portrayal of Tommy was pathetic. The Tuppence character was somewhat better, but not by a lot. Was really looking forward to this series, but just ended up massively disappointed.

The Partners in Crime series from 1983, with Francesca Annis and James Warwick, is wonderful by the way. It stays true to the novels and the chemistry between the leads in adorable. Watch that series every time!

This tries to be humorous and suspenseful yet fails to deliver on both. The main characters are so clueless that any intelligence they gather seems to just fall into their laps. The 1st case (eps 1-3) is OK, the 2nd (eps 4-6) is awful.

So disappointed in this! Tuppence has gone from being a plucky flapper, to a dutiful 1950s housewife. Tommy seems to me incredibly miscast. The earlier series version with Francesca Annis just sparkled. This one was lacking in any humour, and dull. I didn't finish it.

The plot and timeline no longer resembles the books, they've picked out bits and pieces and blended them all together to make a mystery hash that makes no sense. I liked the casting but that's about it.

No chemistry between the 2 main characters. And it may be that the husband has a personality, but it was not noticeable here. The plot is disjointed and often makes no sense at all.
Give it a miss.

High quality production but the constant twists are not well-plotted, and frankly, the couple makes so many mistakes it's a wonder they're not killed (not very believable). There are some cute moments and the sleuthing emphasis of trusting your intuition. It may be that the director, coming from a theater background, has staged this series more along those lines, with characters entering and exiting.

Loved the books? then don't bother with this series. Other than the names of the characters and the episodes, there is little similarity.

These movies were too dark for my taste -- the original Tommy and Tuppence movies, with James Warwick and Francesca Annis, were witty and light. The chemistry between Warwick and Annis was amazing, too; I really didn't like the casting choices for this remake.

So slow, no chemistry between two main characters. No wonder series cancelled.
