Acorn TV finales its fourth series of Agatha Raisin in a stylish kind of mystery that is a bit more intrigue but also done in the usual stylish fashion.
Agatha Raisin There Goes the Bride, Series Four Episode Four (2022) Acorn TV Review
Gathering for a wedding is a most joyous event. However when there’s exes included and involved, it may be a little bit, shall we say, sticky? Agatha (Ashley Jensen) and most of her pals are currently in one such situation. On the wedding weekend of James Lacey (Jamie Glover) who happens to be Agatha’s ex, the gang shows up and meets James’ gorgeous, blonde fiancée; the mysterious girl they’ve only heard about until now.
The stage is all set, the wedding dress fitted, the photos taken and now, all that’s left are ‘I dos.’ But as Agatha will be on the guest list and everyone from Toni (Jodie Tyack) and Bill (Matt McCooey) to Charles (Jason Merrells) and Sarah (Lucy Liemann) will also be there, we all know there’s a murderer on the loose!

Sad as I am that this is the final installment in the fourth series of Agatha Raisin, I do walk away in confidence saying, they’re good. This one in particular ends things in style and with some fantastic humor. Humor that won’t be to everyone’s liking however it makes me laugh where nothing else has recently. This episode is just as fun as the other ones because of the group dynamics and Agatha in general. Although, just so everyone knows going in, if you like Roy, he’s absent this time around.
The script for this one is really lovely as is the moments between a certain two characters. They’re full of just enough wistfulness and contentment to feel complete and honest. I’m not entirely sure where this may take the characters in a possible fifth season, or if it will mean anything, but the moments are charming and lovely to say the least. Additionally, if you’re a fan of romance, there’s another adorable moment five minutes before the end that makes me hope writers don’t crush our romantic hearts with this story. They’ve done it before so I think it’s fair to point out.
If you like the first three (or six depending on how you watch them; my episodes are one 90 minute installments, Amazon breaks those into two forty-some minutes) episodes, you’ll enjoy ‘There Goes the Bride.’ It’s fun and cute and of course, all about running here and there to solve mystery. Plus, we see Agatha, quite literally, take down a suspect and it’s all kinds of fun!
