Whistable Pearl series 1

The series is set for its DVD and digital release thanks to Acorn Media International on 14 November 2022 and coincides with the brand-new second series coming to Acorn TV.

Set in the picturesque 16th century English seaside resort of Whitstable, one of Kent’s most stunning coastal towns famous for its native oysters, the enthralling mystery series, based on acclaimed author Julie Wassmer’s (EastEnders) popular novels The Whitstable Pearl Mystery and Disappearance at Oare is brought to life for the first time on screen by iconic Norwegian filmmaker Øystein Karlsen (Exit, Dag, Lilyhammer).

We meet big-hearted local celebrity Pearl Nolan (Godliman), who runs the eponymous Whitstable Pearl restaurant, but her real passion lies in detective work, after her police career was suddenly cut short many years before. When Pearl discovers the body of close family friend, Vinnie, she’s convinced it was foul play and following her instincts she embarks on her own murder investigation. Then a second body turns up and she finds herself embroiled in the dark underbelly of this picturesque town...

Teaming up with new arrival DCI Mike McGuire (Charles), Pearl is soon putting her distant police- training to good use and decides now is the time to set up her own detective agency. The world is her oyster.

Crimes most horrid have washed up on these shores, but discover this Pearl of wisdom who’s ready to solve them.

SPECIAL FEATURES include: From Page to Screen Feature, including interviews with author Julie Wassmer and Kerry Godliman.
