Australian actors and comedians Shaun Micallef and Kat Stewart have created, and star in, Mr & Mrs Murder, a brand new TV show that has come to the UK hot on the heels of its huge success down under, in Australia.
Charlie and Nicola Buchanan are a fun-loving couple who spend their time cleaning up crime scenes when the Australian police have finished collecting their evidence. The husband and wife team do more than just clean up after the Aussie criminals though, they somehow end up finding their way to solving the crimes themselves.
This crack husband and wife team rely on the different skills each of them possess. Charlie is very much a man of facts and is always on hand to provide a examples and definitions, whilst Nicola is full of empathy for people and has a strong sense of justice. Their keen eye for crime scene clean up, often leads them to uncover clues and much of the time evidence that the cops have missed, leading them to catching the criminals that had been eluding the police.
Charlie and Nicola are joined on-screen by Detective Peter Vinetti (Jonny Pasvolsky – Mortdecai), who will pass tips of possible clean ups to Mr & Mrs Murder, but who also finds they are an invaluable part of the investigative process. Sometimes the Buchanan’s are joined by their niece Jess Chalmers, (Lucy Honigman – The Ex-PM) as well as friends Alan and Janine (Ben Guerens & Georgia Naidu).
The 13 part show is now brought to you by RLJ Entertainment Ltd and comes to DVD on 3rd August 2015 in this fabulous two disc set that has a number of special features including:
