We’re excited to announce that our Jerry Iwu has joined the leading cast of the upcoming series The Sister Boniface Mysteries for BBC Studios and BritBox.

Set in 1960s rural England, this entertaining detective drama follows the investigations of Sister Boniface of St Vincent’s Convent – nun, moped rider, wine maker and part-time forensic scientist. The popular character, brought to life by Lorna Watson, first appeared on screens in Father Brown. Created by Jude Tindall (Father Brown) and produced by BBC Studios.

Jerry is set to play Detective Sergeant Felix Livingstone. Felix was supposed to be on secondment to the Metropolitan Police but an administrative error lands him in Great Slaughter. A cast of eccentric local characters combined with his boss’s reliance on a nun leave him reeling…

Sister Boniface Mysteries will air in the UK on UKTV’s free-to-air channel Drama and in the USA on BritBox in 2022.
