"Pie in the Sky Series 2,Part 1" a British mystery television series that happily blends cookery and crime, was made by the British Broadcasting Corporation.

If only they made programmes like this nowadays! Well cast, well acted, good storeylines and it has that vital difference from any other detective series. No violence, no bad language so by todays standards it's tame and escapist but what the heck. Good all round family entertainment
