Our latest BritBox find is the Sister Boniface Mysteries. This Father Brown spinoff is a light-hearted murder mystery set deep in the 1960s British countryside. It stars Lorna Watson as a clever, Vespa-driving, crime-solving Catholic nun. Boniface has an I.Q. of 156 and a PHD in forensic science who serves as scientific advisor to the local police.
The first “series” is ten episodes. A second series has been commissioned. The show is even more campy than Father Brown. The story lines are entertaining. The chemistry between the main characters is great. Definitely a good break from some of the darker themed shows we are watching.
