    A British series you will love

    Pie in the Sky is one of the best series I have seen in the last 40 years. Combining the culinary and restaurant world with police work was an inspiration. Acting is intimate and down to earth. We cannot wait for the availability of Series 2. Foyle's War is another British series that rates as highly as Pie in the Sky. Michael Kitchen is superb in his role.

    Pie in the Sky

    One of the best series I have seen. It blends cooking and police work. Very believable characters. As I watch other mysteries, I see people I have seen in Pie in the Sky. It is a shame it was only 5 seasons.

    Well Done Series

    It is an engaging British series that provides an evening of enjoyable viewing. The characters and actors work exceeding well together along with an enjoyable story line. Imaging a detective story where only fine dining and good food are featured as part of a low key mystery.

    Highly recommended.

    MYSTERIES AND FOOD. WHAT MORE COULD YOU ASK FOR.

    WE LOVE BBC MYSTERIES. PIE IN THE SKY IS JUST THE LATEST IN FINE ENTERTAINMENT. WE WANTED TO ADD A DIFFERENT MYSTERY SERIES TO OUR COLLECTION. WHAT A GREAT ADDITION! WE LOOK FORWARD TO THE RELEASE OF THE REST.

    Pie in the Sky Series 1

    Most enjoyable British series as only they can do. Rates right up there with Midsomer Murders and Foyles War. Highly recommend it!
