Storyline

After her father's death, sensible and cheerful Mma Precious Ramotswe sells her inherited cattle and opens the country's only female-owned detective agency. She hires Botswana Secretarial College graduate (97% in the final exams!) Grace Makutsi as her assistant. Together they solve problems big and small with their wisdom, big hearts, and endless cups of red-bush tea. Meanwhile, Mma Ramotswe's best friend, mechanic Mr. JLB Matekoni, hopes for a chance to win her heart... Based on Alexander McCall Smith's best-selling book series. Written by L. Hamre

Sweet and well done
26 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My Nana saw this on the TV, she told me about this show and the first thing that I thought of was 'a bunch of ladies in Africa who are detectives', sounds rather dull don't want to see this at all.

I bought my Nana the DVD as she was going through a rough patch, and I stayed with her and watched it not expecting much, and I was surprised. It's really good.

It's one of those shows that isn't laugh out loud funny or edge of your seat but it's worth watching and to put it simply a good story and quite comforting if your feeling low.

Defo worth watching at least once
