If it is a mystery series Acorn TV has in its catalog a large number of options to see. Very recently, it was launched Queens of Mystery and this Thursday the platform surprises with another great premiere of a similar style. Is about The Madame Blanc Mysteries, a show that mixes various genres such as drama, suspense, and, of course, with an interesting amount of humor. In Spoiler, we will tell you what is different about this series and why it is an excellent story to start enjoying.

Created by Sally Lindsay Y Sue Vicent, the series follows the life of Jean White, an English antiquities expert who suddenly learns that her husband has been killed in a terrible car accident in Holy victory, France. From Manchester she travels to this striking little French village not only to collect her husband’s belongings but to find out why he is now bankrupt. Thus, she will have the mission of solving the mystery of her husband ahead of her. In this somewhat eccentric adventure, Jean meets people who will help her understand what happened with her partner and who will also become great allies.

Of the most interesting elements of The Madame Blanc Mysteries Antiques stand out, a universe perhaps little explored in television series. Jean is an antiquarian specialist and will demonstrate all her knowledge in each of the episodes. Those who are attracted to this theme will surely see with good eyes how it is portrayed. Perhaps this has to do with the fact that its creator, Sally LindsayShe is a true fan of antiques and has always been linked to this particular world.

On the other hand, the series relies on a special combination of genres that make the story become more and more compelling. We have a woman who has just lost her husband in a dramatic way and is determined to find an answer to the tragedy. Jean is capable of getting to the bottom of the matter and even surprising herself about what she can achieve. All this is always drawn under a sophisticated line of humor with characters who are willing to make us laugh with their occurrences.

In turn, it is not minor to highlight the photography work that has been done for this Acorn show. The Madame Blanc Mysteries was filmed in Malta Y Gozo, and it perfectly presents us with a beautiful traditional-style villa that, although it instantly makes you fall in love with it, also knows how to leave us an aura of mystery. Undoubtedly, each of the scenes manages to transport almost in time and space to that place that, yes, something hides.

Just as in Queens of Mystery we saw a leading quartet of women, The Madame Blanc Mysteries continue on this path. Lindsay and Vicent excel both as creators and actresses. Lindsay plays a brave, intelligent and stubborn woman who will do whatever it takes to understand what happened to her husband’s life, but also to understand who he really was. His character is charismatic and achieves the necessary empathy to connect with the public, without any doubt. Meanwhile Vincent adds a lot of humor to his character Gloria.

And in this same sense it is Steve Edge, who plays Dom, a British taxi driver who lives in Holy victory a few years ago. With your predisposition and kindness, you will become a unique companion for Jean on this tour. The chemistry between the actors is magnificent and they convey naturalness to the bond.

The Madame Blanc Mysteries has 6 episodes of about an hour under the direction of Dermot Boyd, known for Mount Pleasant, and it is a very good option for those who love to solve mysteries in the best style Agatha Christie. It’s cool, fun, and super entertaining. From this Thursday, January 13 you can already see its first chapter in Acorn TV.
