Samosas, Suspicion and Stately Homes

Meera Syal stars as Mrs Sidhu, the nosey Slough Asian caterer obsessed with murder. When a bridesmaid goes missing, Mrs Sidhu interferes in Lord and Lady Lucas's wedding plans.

A murder mystery with a quirky touch written by Suk Pannu and starring Meera Syal. The Indian Aunty from Slough gets mixed up in society crimes in Berkshire.

Mrs Sidhu (Meera Syal) is the interfering Indian chef with a taste for murder. Since her husband's death, she has built a successful reputation as a caterer in Slough and has expanded into well-heeled Berkshire, where the posh clients pay better. But when crime strikes, Mrs Sidhu embroils Inspector Burton (Justin Edwards) in the murky lives of gadget inventor, Lord Lucas, his icy wife Lady Lucas (Rachel Atkins) and bride to be Jemma Broghan (Amy Morgan).

Meanwhile at home, she is plagued by her wily catering supplier Mr Varma (Vincent Ebrahim) and her wayward son Tez (Hamza Jetooa).

In the first episode, Mrs Sidhu leaves Slough for a posh wedding at Lapsley Hall where the bride appeals for her help in finding her missing maid of honour. Meanwhile her son Tez is angry when she employs a French sous chef.
