I really love this show. The writing is top notch, the acting is exceptional, and the setting is wonderfully beautiful. Every single recurring character is charming and delightful in their own way, and the mysteries are often actually mysterious. While the show is about a coroner and therefor deals with real human issues, so there are moments of genuine sadness and ugliness to be dealth with, it's also a gentle show that won't assault you with uneccsary violence or brutalities such as child or animal cruelty. The four main characers are the coroner, the cop, and the coroners mom and her boyfriend. I love them all, and each one is brilliantly realized by the actor that plays them. In fact, for my tast this show is absolutly brilliant and it had a large and growing following in Brittain as well has having won awards. I am as baffled as everyone else as to why it was unexpectedly cancelled after only two seasons (if you want to see season two in the US as this point, you'll have to buy the DVD). Go sign the online petition demanding it's return, so I can keep watching it, OK?
