Not so No.1 Ladies

Oh dear, I was so disappointed in last night's BBC 1 film of The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Heretical opinion coming up: all Anthony Minghella's films were too long and too slow. And why was it so dark? Where was the wonderful light of Africa? What was with the semi-naked tribal dancing? Mma Makutsi went ballroom dancing. Where were the white people, like Dr Moffatt? Questions, questions, questions. The three principals were terrific: I hope they keep the same actors for the series. Verdict: not enough tea and not enough goodness.
