Again, there was much discussion about what Agatha would have in her house. In the end they pretty much trusted me to "go for it" and I did! Looking at these photos now, I can tell you it would be impossible to do this set here in Honolulu today. Even with the number of things I again brought from my own house, you would never find all these things in town today.
You can see how much detail and work went into constructing these sets. All those windows were custom built, painted, and then I covered them all up with my drapes! Because of the size of this set, you can see that above the set they used "headers" or sort of fake beams to help hide the overhead lighting and allow the camera to shoot a little wider without worrying they would see the top of the set. Looking at it now 24 years later, it seems odd the way the drapes I stapled up are on the INside of the arched window. There should be some curved molding around them. Oh well, too late now! Again, the pedestals on either side of the fireplace, the portrait of Queen Victoria (my great uncle was a guard for her BTW), the bench with arms, the marble top commode in front of the window, the burgundy side chair, that huge oriental rug (later stolen from me) and some of the smalls all came from my house. I would never do that again today!
This set was only used once as I recall. A lot of work but a wonderful episode. I think that there could have been a spin-off of Magnum staring Gillian. "Agatha, P.I."?? Maybe not. She was capable of a lot more. I have many happy memories of her.
