Based on acclaimed author Julie Wassmer’s much loved novels The Whitstable Pearl Mystery and Disappearance at Oare, Acorn TV’s Whitstable Pearl is just around the corner.
Kerry Godliman plays the lead Pearl Nolan, alongside Frances Barber and Howard Charles in the drama.
Pearl Nolan is a big-hearted, local celebrity who runs the eponymous Whitstable Pearl restaurant, but her real passion lies in detective work, after her police career was suddenly cut short many years before. When Pearl discovers the body of close family friend, Vinnie, she’s convinced it was foul play and following her instincts she embarks on her own murder investigation. Then a second body turns up and she finds herself embroiled in the dark underbelly of this picturesque town. Teaming up with new arrival DCI Mike McGuire, Pearl is soon putting her distant police-training to good use and decides now is the time to set up her own detective agency. The world is her oyster.
It will stream from Monday 24th May, with one episode per week after an initial double bill.
