Sister Boniface Secrets Season 2 Episode Guide


Great Slaughter hosts the children's summer show "Jolly Roger", much to editor Dinah Morgan's (Abigail Thaw) annoyance. Taking out her frustration on the cast and crew, Dinah insists on a younger, more emotional version of the Jolly Roger to spice up the sleepy Great Carnage. The Timbers soon shudder, however, when Dinah is discovered during a live performance. Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) is called in to investigate who may have committed the act - the man of action Jono Hardy (Alan Emrys), the cheeky Danny Lemon (Mikey Collins), the acrobatic Sandy Shanks (Alice Marshall) or the fired producer Fliss Forsyth (Rhiannon ) Clemente). Sister Boniface must negotiate with the parrot and probe the puppet to get to the bottom of the mystery before sabotage derails the Jolly Roger's most ambitious feat.


The sight of Baron Battenberg's mysterious disappearance sends the press and police into a frenzy. Determined to uncover the facts, Ruth (Miranda Raison) and Sam (Max Brown) infiltrate the Pranayama resort, run by Baron's widow Marion Gray (Emily Bruni) and brother Edwin Battenberg (Jason Thorpe). The only problem - aside from the questionable cooking skills of Connie Dumas (Sarah Moyle) - Pranayama is a "couples only" retreat that forces Ruth and Sam to pose as husband and wife, which they seem to resent. Ruth and Sam befriend tumultuous couple Ben (George Sargeant) and Leigh Matthews (Jahannah James), but any brooding moments are quickly cut short when they discover the body of journalist Victor Goodbody (Tim Frances) in the woods. With Sister Boniface's (Lorna Watson) mind altered by a psychedelic substance, can Ruth and Sam stick together long enough to discover Goodbody's killer and finally solve the mystery of Baron Battenberg?


Peggy (Ami Metcalf) is thrilled when high school friend and supermodel Robin Carter (Maddy Ambus), now known as "Birdie", returns home to Great Slaughter to film a documentary chronicling her meteoric rise. But all is not so rosy in Birdie's world - she rejects the desperate advances of her estranged mother, Shirley (Caroline O'Neill), while tensions rise with her money-obsessed manager, Max Savage (Steve Meo). When Max is found dead in his locked room, Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) and the gang are called in to investigate. Everyone becomes suspicious when Birdie's troubled relationship with Max and the tense atmosphere within their team come to light. Smart designer Moses Valentino (Brendan Howley) wants to take over running Birdie, but does he have her best interests at heart? The gang investigates with fraudulent documentarian Verity Martin (Jemima Rooper). With Birdie about to sign a new contract, can Peggy help Sister Boniface unravel this web of scams and save her friend before it's too late?


Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) and the gang are horrified to discover all the hallmarks of a human sacrifice ritual in the woods supposedly performed by a group of witches! The corpse is identified as local woman Jackie Rice (Louise Marwood), leading the team to discover dinner-shy lady Heather Hartwood (Elizabeth Rider) attempting to burn witchcraft paraphernalia in Jackie's home. Heather admits to being a witch, belonging to the same coven as Jackie, but insists that her intention is only to heal and help others; they are white witches. This discovery has little effect on the Reverend Mother Adrian (Carolyn Pickles), who turns the town into a witch hunt with signs and torches waving! Sister Boniface and the gang must discover the whereabouts of Betty Jessop (Caroline Sheen) and her daughter Lucy (Hannah Hutch) before "dark magic" and the mysterious Book of Shadows cause even more mayhem...or murder.


Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) is shocked by a visit from Vivienne (Maggie Steed) and Malise Bonham-Crane (Geoff McGivern), her own parents! Convinced that catastrophic events for the Cold War are planned for the British Open Chess Championship, Malise convinces Boniface's sister to throw away her chess skills and enter the tournament. He will face stiff competition, with the impenetrable Anthony Whitlock (Daniel Cerqueira), his wife Nadiya (Andreea Paduraru), the extremely intelligent Oliver Canning (Ben Mansfield) and the great team of Evelyn Thurleigh (Jonny Khan) and coach Jack Denbury ( Tom Glenister). But when Anthony is found dead, injected with a deadly, unknown substance, the tournament takes a backseat. Sister Boniface and her father race against time to break the codes before more lives and even the nation's security are at stake.


Felix (Jerry Iwu) as a police advisor on the set of the latest film "Oh! Behave Yourself!". Abrasive director Sexton St Juste (Stephen Matthews) fools everyone with his venomous attitude and scathing wit, more interested in slapstick and strapless than police procedure. Soon Felix discovers that Sexton has been strangled with a strange weapon and suddenly the entire team is summoned to the studio. However, while escorting Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) into the convent's infirmary, Sam (Max Brown) and Felix receive unexpected "help" from Sister Reginald (Virginia Fiol) and Sister Peter (Tina Chiang). Felix and Sam delve into the dirty laundry of a jaded cast of primitive actors: director's wife Genevieve Loveday (Lisa Ellis), professionally frustrated Sally Chagford (Chelsea Fitzgerald), scapegoat Roy Perk (Jamie McKenna) and burnt-out alcoholic Eric Cockburn (James Hurn). Meanwhile, Sister Boniface tries to solve the mystery lying on the sickbed, unaware of the Reverend Mother Adrian (Carolyn Pickles).


Great Slaughter is full of excitement for this year's talent show, which features a grand cash prize and a celebrity judge, actress Jane Beaufort (Antonia Kinlay). But when selfish magician Terry Smith (Nigel Boyle) - "The Great Faldini" - performs his breathtaking trick, the other contestants quickly give up hope. However, in hot weather, Terry is magically murdered and Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) deduces that the cause of death was trick manipulation. Felix (Jerry Iwu) interviews the somber Sylvie Simmons (Amy Forrest), Tina's ruthless stage mother Tina (Georgia Conlan) and Terry's old theater partner Curly Cuddles the clown (John Thomson). With a threatening letter left for Terry by the mysterious "Debra Cadabra" and a suspicious can of hairspray on the loose, Sister Boniface and Felix must consider whether the killer's motive is to eliminate competition or something far more disturbing. Meanwhile, Sam (Max Brown) is conspicuous by his absence alone: ​​instead of investigating, he's quite content with his annual audit. What is he hiding?


Peggy (Ami Metcalf) is thrilled when her favorite pirate radio station, "Radio Catherine", brings its trendy broadcasts to Great Slaughter. Led by the wacky Billy King (Thomas Flynn), the gang of pirates must stay one step ahead of the GPO engineer determined to bring them to justice, Nigel Greybone (Sean McKenzie), with a disgruntled Sam (Max Brown). When trying to tune into the latest programme, Peggy finds only interference - in a shocking turn of events, Billy King has been murdered on air. Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) deduces that Billy was electrocuted, which puts radio veteran Patt Garrett (Karl Theobald), expert engineer Arnie Cuningham (Josh Bolt), the brains behind the group Cathy Bright (Ellen Francis) and the enigmatic businessman Gabriel Viegas (Tibu Fortes) all suspicious. Sister Boniface desperately tries to identify a mysterious sound to uncover the killer, but can she do it without jeopardizing the future of Peggy's beloved "Radio Catherine"?


CC Lowsley (Robert Daws) is frantically preparing for the next Great Slaughter Amateur Dramatic Society (G-SADS) production. With a funding offer on the line and a rival company stacked against them, Lowsley will stop at nothing to realize his vision. Drama and reality quickly blur, however, when main character Lewis Gardner (Jack Ashton) is killed by main character Myrna Potts (Laurel Waghorn) during rehearsals with a handmade stage knife. But along with fellow cast members Captain Pargiter (Owen Brenman), Derek Dobson (Tony Marshall) and rejected costume designer Hildy Prentice (Carli Norris), was Myrna really responsible? Delving into the players' backgrounds and the play itself, Sister Boniface and the gang uncover an unsolved case that seems inextricably linked to Lewis's murder. Can they solve both cases before the curtain falls and the killer escapes?


When local resident Irene Symonds (Lisa Allen) is murdered in a manner befitting the "Good Samaritan" killer, Sam (Max Brown) and sister Boniface (Lorna Watson) fear the worst - the killer is back. But locked away in a high-security psychiatric facility and watched over by Nurse Brenda Bristow (Juliet Oldfield), is Myrtle Hunnisweet (Penny Ryder), a convicted "Good Samaritan," capable of such organized chaos? The deceased's cheated husband, Trevor Simmonds (John Hollingworth), is the prime suspect, but the investigation soon turns into a dead end... Sam's frustration mounts when The Bugle's editor, Clem (Mat Fraser) and author Harald Steele (Gareth Snook) accuse him of wrongful imprisonment. As poisonings continue to occur in Great Slaughter, Sam's reputation and career hang in the balance. Sister Boniface must decipher the mysterious codes before the "Good Samaritan" claims his next victim.

Sister Boniface Mysteries season 2 interview with Lorna Watson

Lorna, what's it like to fall back into a habit?

"I'm a big fan of this habit, even though it's really hot! It's a very transformative costume because it affects everything, even the way you turn your head! It really helps when it comes to embodying the character, just because it's so different than you normally wear”.

Do you feel different playing the title character of the series?

“It's a real team effort.Sister Bonifacebecause it's an ensemble cast, so I feel like part of the gang. But maybe there's that little pressure of wanting to be on top of everything to keep things running smoothly and keep everyone happy."

Your character's name, Bonifácio, is unusual and usually given to boys! Were you happy growing up as Lorna or would you like a more exotic name?

“I was named after Lorna Bernstein, who was the daughter of a Polish Jewish artist who survived Auschwitz and was close to our family, so that name holds a special place in my heart. Anyway, with my Scottish heritage, pale skin and freckles, I don't look very exotic, so a name like 'Conchita' wouldn't really suit me!”

Sister Boniface Mysteries Season 2: Release date, trailer, cast, episodes, and everything we know (6)

The television series in the first episode is clearly based onPeter Blue! Which hosts of this cult series did you grow up with?

“I remember getting an autograph from Mark Curry when I was at a competition and watching Peter Duncan do his daring stunts.Peter Bluealbeit a badge! Also, many years later, when Ingrid [Oliver, Laura's comedy partner] and I were doing our sketch, our BBC office forgotPeter Bluegarden!"

You appeared in brightterrible storiesas Queen Boudica. Have you done many other children's TV shows?

“I did some other stuff and wrote for children's television. My Other Half Marcus [Garvey, brother of Elbow singer Guy Garvey] played an ugly yeti inbasil brush!"

You attract big guest stars on this show. Who should we watch out for right now?

“I was very happy to meet [Apprehensivestar] John Thomson, who plays a clown in one episode. One rainy day we were sitting in the car together and I made him do his Jazz Club characterquick presentation. It was a special moment when I was sitting in the car and John Thomson was saying, "Cool!"

We hear that Sister Boniface takes psychedelics in this series!

Filming this scene was bizarre. The episode takes place at a wellness retreat and its eggs are spiked with LSD. When she starts hallucinating, DI Gillespie [Max Brown] and WPC Peggy Button [Ami Metcalf] have to take care of her!"

And we also know Sister Bonifaceja's parents, right?

“Yes, in the episode about the chess tournament, Maggie Steed and Geoff McGivern played brilliantly! They are scientists and atheists, and they cannot understand why their daughter became a nun! This helps explain how she became who she is and where her hunger for knowledge comes from. It's a bit of an odd family dynamic, but there's a lot of love and respect in it."

What did your parents think when you decided to be an actor?

"They've always been very supportive of me but it's hard for them to see you struggling - like when I was dressed like a pint of Guinness to work at Twickenham Rugby Stadium!"

You were at an all-girls school with your future comedy partner Ingrid. Was there any resemblance to convent life?

“We were very close and a sense of humor was very important - perhaps because the opposite sex was not there to make us feel awkward. Catherine Parkinson [Doctor Marcin] was in our class too!”

Sister Bonifácio rides a Vespa scooter. Have you ever had a moped accident on vacation?

"Absolutely yes! I was riding a moped in Cyprus with my friend Rachel on the back. The bike turned sideways and Rachel had the good sense to jump off, but I kept riding my bike sideways in my flip-flops! rest of the holiday and every time I went into the sea I was sure I would be eaten by sharks. That was horrible!"

And finally, who is your favorite nun and who is your favorite detective?

"Oh, it's hard! I've always had a soft spot for Columbo because my dad used to watch it when I was little. My favorite nun would have to be the one that Sister Boniface was modeled on. Her name is Sister Agnes Bartel, she was a naval surgeon and the first female RAF wing commander!"
