Mrs Sidhu Investigates

Mrs. Sidhu Investigates, Acorn TV’s newest original mystery series, premieres on Monday, September 18; new episodes drop weekly after that. Suk Pannu (The Kumars at No. 42) created and wrote the four-part series, which is based on the hit BBC Radio 4 show of the same name. Mrs. Sidhu, the show’s namesake, is played by Meera Syal (The Kumars at No. 42, The Split, The Devil’s Hour), who also provided her voice for the radio show. Craig Parkinson, known for his roles in Line of Duty, Grace, and Doctor Who, co-stars as the jaded DCI Burton. They work together in an informal capacity to solve crimes in the wealthy county of Berkshire.

What is Mrs. Sidhu Investigates about

Mrs. Sidhu (Syal) is a criminally inclined gourmet caterer. She runs a successful catering business despite being a recent widow, all while trying to inspire her wayward son Tez (Gurjeet Singh, Ackley Bridge) to find his calling. DS Mint (Naana Agyei-Ampadu, Industry) is perplexed by her forays into policing, but she soon forms an unofficial partnership with the long-suffering divorcee DCI Burton (Parkinson), who accepts that together they are an unbeatable crime fighting duo.

What can we expect from the premiere

In the opening episode two bodies are discovered in the spa on Mrs. Sidhu’s first day of catering for Sharpetone, an upscale health club. Mrs. Sidhu has a talent for figuring out whodunits, but she avoids getting involved as much as possible. When Mrs. Sidhu learns that the police are looking at her niece Rani as a prime suspect, she decides to do her own investigation to clear Rani’s name. Inspector Burton, the lead detective on the case, has no patience for her speculations and ends up at odds with her. As she digs deeper, she finds out about office feuds, secret romances, and other previously unknown business secrets.

Who is behind the series

Mrs Sidhu Investigates is created and written by Suk Pannu, with Vivienne Harvey (Harlots) also writing two episodes and Meera Syal providing additional material. The series is directed by Steve Barron (The Durrells) and Ben Kellett (Death in Paradise). Jane Wallbank (Traces) serves as producer. Executive producers include Catherine Mackin and Bea Tammer for Acorn Media Enterprises; Jane Wallbank, Alison Owen, Debra Hayward and Alison Carpenter for Monumental Television; Gordon Kennedy for Absolutely Productions and Steve Barron. Meera Syal and Suk Pannu are also executive producers.
