Our latest British crime series find is Mrs Sidhu Investigates. Mrs Sidhu, who is played by Meera Syal, is a caterer with a taste for solving mysteries. Her sleuthing turns into an unofficial partnership with dour DCI Burton, played by Craig Parkinson, who reluctantly accepts that together they make the perfect pairing to fight crime. This is a spinoff of a BBC Radio series. The first season just started airing in September. It has four episodes.
We just watched the first episode. The two main characters are engaging and have a great dynamic. The script gets a little campy, but it was well paced and enjoyable. We will be watching the rest. If your a fan of this type of British crime show, it is recommended. You can see some of our other recommendations here.
