Rosemary and Thyme.
»
Gardeners, flower enthusiasts and those who enjoy British murder mysteries will love this series about two single women who set up a landscaping business yet keep stumbling upon murders to solve.

The series begins with former professor Rosemary Boxer meets Laura Thyme, who has just left her cheating husband and is now at loose ends. A former police officer, Laura know how to solve cases, which is fortunate as the pair usually solve the murder for the police working the case.

Seeing the beautiful flowers and luscious landscapes makes the show quite enjoyable besides trying to figure out the puzzle of "who dunnit."

It can get a bit tiresome to see men always falling in love with the thin Rosemary but rarely the rounder Laura, although the men who flirt with Rosemary often turn out to be the murderers.

Set in late 19th century London, not long after Jack the Ripper has stopped his murder spree--although, of course, no one at the time knew whether the blood bath had truly ended--"Ripper Street" focuses on Detective Reid as he investigates murders in Whitechapel, now infamous because of the serial killer.

Our protagonist brings on staff at the police station a drunken American doctor to work as the medical examiner and together the pair solve crimes.

The show has interesting male main characters, but only shallow female main characters. In fairness, it at least has some female characters, unlike some police shows. It is quite telling that one point in the show's favor is that not all the female characters are prostitutes, although the portrayal of these women could use more depth.

There are several anachronisms, such as vocabulary and technology.

This show is violent, crude, contains full nudity and so is very inappropriate for children.
