Publisher's Summary

Here are two stand-alone BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramas adapted by Alexander McCall Smith from his much-loved series. Warm, humorous and uplifting, Alexander McCall Smith’s hugely popular novels featuring Precious Ramotswe, proprietor of Botswana’s only female private detective agency, have become international bestsellers, sold over 15 million copies, and been translated into 42 languages. These acclaimed productions, complete with vibrant music, bring the exotic world of the books vividly to life.

A Very Rude Woman finds Precious Ramotswe facing change at The No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, while Mr J.L.B. Matekoni meets the rudest person in all Botswana.

Talking Shoes sees a new detective taking on a case for the Agency, while Mma Ramotswe, among others, has a problem with high blood pressure.

Starring Claire Benedict as Mma Ramotswe and Nadine Marshall as Mma Makutsi, these dramatisations are guaranteed to appeal to all fans of the engaging lady detective.

McCall Smith at his best!

A superb adaptation of the McCall Smith stories from the BBC.These nuggets are heartwarming and reveal the complexity of human nature in what appears to be simple tales on the surface. Superb acting from Clare Benedict & supporting cast.
