Precious Ramotswe, Botswana's premier - and only - lady detective, is back with another batch of unusual cases.
In these eight episodes, she receives a visit from a very important person; helps out Mma Potokwani, who has had bad news at the Orphan Farm; looks into who is orchestrating a campaign against Mma Soleti and welcomes a new arrival - while righting an old wrong.
Plus, Mr JLB Matekoni's apprentice gets into trouble; Mma Makutsi is hiding a secret, and Mma Ramotswe tries to come to terms with one of the trickiest situations she has ever faced: taking a holiday.
The stories included are: A Man From a Far Place, The Limpopo Academy of Private Detection, The Modern Husband Course, The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon, The Handsome Man's Deluxe Café, The Dish of Yesterday, This Is Not a Rubbish Boy and The Woman Who Walked in Sunshine.
Brought to life with evocative music and a full cast, these engaging adaptations star Claire Benedict as Mma Ramotswe, with Nadine Marshall as Mma Makutsi and Joseph Marcell as Mr JLB Matekoni.
