Anytime there’s a new series of a favorite British show showing up on my streaming lineup, I’m eager to hit “play.” Such is the case with the second series of a cute and fun BritBox series that is all kinds of good “clean” fun.
Sister Boniface Mysteries, Series Two (2023) BritBox TV Review
Clever beyond what most expect from a woman in a habit, Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) is more than just a devout woman. She studied forensics in college and has a mind for it. This is what led her to be the police’s go to expert in Great Slaughter, a quaint and happy village that still somehow sees its fair share of difficulty. Their latest case involves a woman heading up a children’s TV program shooting in Great Slaughter for the summer.
Together with DI Sam Gillepsie (Max Brown) and his trusty partner Felix (Jerry Iwu), the trio set out to investigate the murder. All with the assistance of the eager and smart WPC Peggy Button (Ami Metcalfe).

This is one of those series I feel like I read reviews for (on places like Amazon) where people dislike it because it’s too cute or simple. Honestly these are the things I value most about this. At the same time, I think some of the episodes have the capacity to, and do impress. There are some cases that are easy and we solve them before the big reveal and others are a little more complex even if only emotionally so.
In addition to some good stories, the characters are also brilliant fun to hang with. From Peggy and Felix to Sam and Sister Boniface, we have a good time with this quartet. The whole aesthetics is cute as well and surprisingly, the one “big” romantic episode (which this show is not) is well done. It’s one of those easy watching experiences we all need in our TV schedule.

Content: this one has nothing terrible. There is the consistent theme of murder. Nothing graphic but we do see some of the deaths happen in flashbacks and of course the bodies as well. Sometimes in a pool of blood. Some of the cases reveal a same-sex relationship (if this bothers you) but nothing much comes of this. Affairs are uncovered during the cases and one episode has actors in drag, and the reveal of a sex tape. (Off camera.) The series is TV-14.
