BAFTA(R)-Nominated Meera Syal Stars as High-End Caterer with Taste for Solving Crimes

Acorn TV’s latest original mystery series, Mrs Sidhu Investigates, will premiere on Monday, September 18, exclusively on Acorn TV, with additional episodes dropping weekly. Based on the popular BBC Radio 4 series of the same name, the four-episode series is created and written by Suk Pannu (The Kumars at No. 42). Meera Syal (The Kumars at No. 42, The Split, The Devil’s Hour), who voiced the eponymous Mrs. Sidhu for the radio show, stars as the high-end caterer Mrs. Sidhu. Craig Parkinson (Line of Duty, Grace, Doctor Who) co-stars as the world-weary DCI Burton. Together, they form an unofficial partnership solving crimes in the affluent county of Berkshire.

Mrs. Sidhu (Syal) is a high-end caterer with a taste for crime. Recently widowed, she juggles her new catering business with encouraging her wayward son Tez (Gurjeet Singh, Ackley Bridge) to find his passion, all while serving up justice to those who believe they are above the law. Her forays into sleuthing see her form unofficial partnership with long-suffering divorcee DCI Burton (Parkinson) who reluctantly accepts that together they’re an unbeatable crime fighting duo, much to the bemusement of his partner, DS Mint (Naana Agyei-Ampadu, Industry).
