Finished watching "The Affair of the Pink Pearl" episode from Partners in Crime, the Tommy & Tuppence series that my sister Sylvia sent me from Australia. Loved it. Deliciously 1920s. Gorgeous sets, costumes, and jewelry. The action, performances, blocking, and entrances and exits are deliberately stagy and comedic, even ambiguously Chekhovian. There is something Lucille Ball-ish about the actress who plays Tuppence. Very whimsical Agatha Christie, and I am happy to have the Poirot series, the Marple series, and this one.
