The No 1 Ladies Detective Agency TV series aired in 2008 and was based on the novels of the same name by Alexander McCall Smith (affiliate link).
This 7-episode series was enjoyable, in the same vein as Death in Paradise but not as formulaic. There aren’t always a murder. It was a shame there was only one season. There are a total of 23 books in this series. That is a lot of materials to work with.
It tells the story of a young woman named Ramotswe who opened the first ladies detective agency in Botswana after the death of her father. It introduced me to Botswana on film and the beautiful Jill Scott.
