Like I mentioned above, I watched this at the right time, as I really needed something comfortable. The link to Christmas in this episode is tenuous at best but that, to me, actually adds some of the charm. The episode takes place close to Christmas as Laura is inviting Rosemary over to spend it with her and her family.
Maigret – Series 1(starting 12/31) Equipped with rigorous logic, uncanny judgment of character, and, his signature pipe and fedora, Maigret relishes the challenge of solving any mystery. Slings & Arrows – Series 2 (starting 12/24) A dysfunctional Shakespearean theatre troupe struggles with artistic egos and conspiratorial board members. Partners in Crime – Series 1 (ends 1/27) Spirited dialogue, posh Roaring ’20s style, and devious mysteries abound in Agatha Christie’s tales of the crime-solving couple Tommy and Tuppence. Monroe – Series 1 (ends 1/20) With a dose of House’s dark humor and an infusion of humanity and warmth, Monroe is a gripping medical drama at its best.
The old manor used as the hotel is gorgeous with its combination of looking traditional but having all the recent amenities. What brings Rosemary and Laura to Crickle Valley Vineyard is a weed problem within the Vineyards vines. Rosemary is having some problems as her land-over is having gear box issues and she is unable to fix the problem due to a lack of money. At Crickle Valley is the vineyard but also a hotel. The Vineyard is managed by Ben Blackton and the hotel is by Stuart Blackton. Stuart desperately wants to get good reviews for the food and quality of service in his hotel.
By the time we get to the end of the episode, all of Laura’s family ended up having other plans and she eventually does decide to spend it with Rosemary. Even though this takes place close Christmas, it is clearly Summer outside. This is not unusual especially for British television to shoot these programs in the summer for a Christmas broadcast.
This episode was aired on new year’s eve, which is on December 31, 1999. In the episode, shortly before the retirement, Superintendent Pringle arrested a local poacher for the murder of a tramp during a fox hunt in woodland close to the village of Upper Marshwood. DCI Barnaby was genre associated with black eyeliner unsure that the poacher was the killer. Now to be honest, I don’t think anyone can call Rosemary & Thyme a big hitter for Christmas. In fact the Christmas episode I watched was shown in the UK on ITV December 23rd 2005. The thing about Rosemary & Thymeis that it is comfortable.
The BBC saw this as a way to add more than just Only Fools and Horses as part of their Christmas programming. Usually there is a big episode of Eastenders that would have a massive plot twist or a death of a regular. Now, one of the big draws on the BBC schedule is the Christmas episode of Doctor Who. The BBC was not alone in this as ITV also got involved with making their own Christmas magic. The season finale of Midsomer Murder 7 was aired on 2004’s Christmas.

I know I have done an episode of Rosemary & Thyme recently but I am sitting here, roughly a week before Christmas and really wanted something comfortable to watch. It’s been a crummy week and as I sat down to view something for this column, I knew I wanted to grab something from the Christmas programming Acorn TV was offering. It’s Sunday and I thought nothing would be more appropriate than watching an episode of Rosemary Boxer and Laura Thyme as they deal with The Cup of Silence.
