The Madame Blanc Mysteries Unboxing

Fan-favourite cosy crime series The Madame Blanc Mysteries hardly reinvents the wheel, but if it ain’t broke don’t fix it! This comforting drama sees Sally Lindsay in the lead role as Jean, an antiques dealer moonlighting as a detective in the beautiful surroundings of Sainte Victoire, France. Across three series, Jean solves all sorts of mysteries from minor offences to murder – and she always cracks the case! This delightful and light series is simple, warm-hearted fun that provides a perfect antidote to the darker, so-called prestige TV you’ll find on the box these days! 

When Jean White (Sally Lindsay), a renowned antiques dealer, is devastated by her husband Rory’s tragic death during a regular French buying trip, she sets off to investigate in Sainte Victoire. Discovering there was more to Rory than met the eye, Jean also uncovers a penchant for solving mysteries. Embracing a new life and new friends in France, Jean decides to set up shop in Sainte Victoire. With admirer Dom by her side, Jean continues to be drawn into mysteries, from minor offences to murder investigations, soon becoming indispensable to local Police Chief Inspector Andre Caron. However, she frequently tests his patience by following leads without him and thus putting herself and those around her in danger.

This boxset contains all episodes from Series 1 to 3, including the Christmas Specials.

The Madame Blanc Mysteries is available now from Acorn Media
