With an old head on young shoulders, the Wainthropp Detective Agency is open for business...Hetty's normal appearance, strong sense of justice, kindly disposition and skill at blending into her surroundings bringher into contact with people from all sections of the community. So far Hetty has led a rather sheltered life, but her initial na vety is outweighed by her commonsense and shrewdness, and streetwise Geoffrey (her new lodger-cum-sidekick) is there to warn her of potential hazards. To begin with money is tight and cases few and far between, but soon Hetty establishes a reputation for getting results even Detective Chief Inspector Adams (John Graham Davies) begins to treat her with respect.Every private eye has a trademark and Hetty has two: an unending supply of berets and a scooter (Geoffrey driving,Hetty on the back).Set and filmed on location in the North West of England, with its rundown post-industrialist towns and magnificentcountryside, Hetty Wainthropp Investigates is a charming mix of suspense and gentle comedy with a redoubtable and veryunusual heroine.
