Acorn TV: Agatha Raisin, played by Ashley Jensen, is a British TV show that quickly gained a fan base across the pond in the US. So when season 3 emerged with only one episode listed, disappointment emerged. But no worries needed, Acorn TV plans to add more Agatha Raisin episodes very soon.
Acorn TV: Agatha Raisin – New Episodes Ready to Go
Starting February 10, Acorn TV brings three more Agatha Raisin episodes to the screen. But these are not your typical TV or cable series episodes. No, fans get movie-length installments of the rather eccentric PR executive turned amateur sleuth.
For all of you Acorn TV viewers, you might see Agatha Raisin with a combination of traits from other popular shows. Some might say there’s a dash of Midsomer Murders and a pinch of Father Brown. It may even seem Aggie offers a more modern recipe for sleuthing than that of Agatha Christie.
Right now “Agatha Raisin and the Haunted House” is the only episode offered from Season 3. But the new installments titled “Love From Hell,” “As The Pig Turns,” and “The Deadly Dance” are ready to go. A new episode rolls out each week starting February 10.
For those of you who have never seen this popular British series or who don’t have Acorn TV at home, you’re missing out on some great entertainment. The scenery around the Cotswolds of England is breathtaking. But the village is quaint, something Aggie looked for when she retired early.
