Pie in the Sky Complete Collection
Detective Inspector Henry Crabbe (Richard Griffiths, Harry Potter, the History Boys) has been a policeman for 25 years, but he's craving a change. Crabbe finally leaves the force and opens his dream restaurant, Pie in the Sky, with his penny-pinching accountant wife (Maggie Steed, Shine on Harvey Moon). He hopes to while away his retirement serving up his favorite dishes, but his old boss (Malcolm Sinclair, Casino Royale) puts his plans on the back burner, keeping Crabbe's plate full with tricky cases. In these five complete series, Griffiths gives a 'brilliantly understated performance' (The Times, U.K.) in the public television hit that's been called 'an enjoyably British mix of character comedy and murder mystery with a light touch' (MSN Entertainment). Guest stars include Michael Kitchen (Foyle's War), Andy Serkis (The Lord of the Rings), Pete Postlethwaite (In the Name of the Father), Julian Fellowes (Monarch of the Glen), Jane Wymark (Midsomer Murders), Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes), Nicola Walker (Touching Evil, MI-5), and Keeley Hawes (Ashes to Ashes).
