01A Pie To Die For20190614

A murder mystery with a quirky touch written by Suk Pannu and starring Meera Syal. The Indian Aunty from Slough gets mixed up in Highland homicide.

Mrs Sidhu (Meera Syal) is the interfering Indian chef with a taste for murder. Since her husband’s death, she has built a successful reputation as a caterer in Slough, and has snagged a billionaire client at a Scottish shooting estate. But when she is threatened by a mysterious Russian, she drags in Inspector Burton (Justin Edwards).

Supported by hotshot trainee PC Williamson (Okorie Chukwu), they pry into the dark corners of Castle Tannoch, its eccentric laird (John Sessions) and his gruff niece Jane (Hilary Maclean).

Meanwhile, handsome Gamekeeper Callum (Gordon Kennedy) makes her heart skip a beat, while her wayward son Tez (Hamza Jeetoa) causes more of a heart attack with his incendiary distractions.

02Episode 2: Loch, Meat Stock And Two Smoking Kippers20190621

Meera Syal stars as the catering sleuth from Slough hunting down a Highland killer.

With Castle Tannoch cut off by snowfall, Mrs Sidhu is - as usual - finding "clues" that give Inspector Burton stress headaches. Pills, a game pie and blood that turns out to be quite something else.

Mrs Sidhu soon has her nose in everyone’s business on the highland estate, but it’s their leisure pursuits that raise her eyebrows. Big Willie Kendrick’s use of the old estate cottage certainly wasn’t for corporate entertainment. And she is sure the maid knows more than she’s letting on.

Meanwhile, Mrs Sidhu's son Tez proposes he needs a gun to protect her. And if that doesn’t fluster her, hunky gamekeeper Callum has her heart fluttering with a proposal of a different kind.

As Mrs Sidhu probes deeper into the death of Willie Kendrick and the secrets of the troubled hunting lodge, she faces a difficult choice between her heart and her head for crime.
