lead an all-star cast in the late Anthony Minghella's and Richard Curtis' charming adaptation of
Alexander McCall Smith's, The No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency.
The first BBC drama to be filmed entirely on location in Botswana, The No. 1 Ladies' Detective
Agency is a charming story chronicling the adventures of Mma Ramotswe.
When Precious Ramotswe was young, she spent her days with Obed, her father, in the wilds of
Botswana learning the secrets of nature, and with that the joys of a natural inquisitiveness and intuition.
When Obed dies, he leaves Precious the first 'step-up' into her new career - one hundred and

With a bad marriage to jazz musician Note Makoti behind her, the sassily independent Precious
Ramotswe embarks on a radical and exciting new chapter in her life.
Precious is not deterred by town gossips and despite few assets, a tiny white van, two desks, two

a powerful sense of vocation.
The most troubling of her cases however, involves an evil form of witchcraft and the riddle surrounding
