'A quirky mystery series with a generous dollop of comedy that benefits from a beautiful location, and has the odd neat, surprising, stylistic touch' – Daily Mail
Award-winning actress Maria Doyle Kennedy (Outlander, Orphan Black, The Tudors, Kin) takes the lead in this dangerously delicious Acorn TV Original mystery drama, based on Sally Andrew's best-selling novels about a newspaper cookery columnist – Tannie Maria (Auntie Maria) – in a small, vibrant town in the beautiful region of the Karoo in South Africa. Watch the complete series as eps 9 and 10 arrive Monday, 3rd October on Acorn TV.
When the newspaper decides to cut her recipes column, Maria (Kennedy) lobbies to take on over the advice column instead, but things soon take an unexpected turn when a correspondent – who had written to Maria about her abusive husband – is found dead and Maria starts to investigate what happened, as well as trying to make sense of her own mysterious past.
Joining forces with Jessie September (newcomer Kylie Fisher), a rookie, risk-taking journalist, and sometimes rival, they take it upon themselves to try and catch the killer… before the local police find more victims. But will they make too many enemies and risk the perpetrator catching them first? Meanwhile, Maria comforts her readers by blending experiential advice with soothing recipes. This wonderful series is truly chicken soup for the soul.
