  • Precious begins her life again after her father dies...


    This was a great pilot episode! Based on Alexander McCall Smith's novels about a female detective living in Botswana- the tv version I think is even better. The books contain a lot of descriptions about the country and what people's attitudes are like and has very little action in some of them - but the pilot episode is a condensed version of the books and I think it benefits from it.

    The lead actress portraying Precious is well cast as are the other supporting characters. And the pictures of the countryside and the towns and the people are just perfect to see. Very well done to all concerned.
