Editorial Reviews

Murder “Terrific lighthearted crime show” —The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)

“Thoroughly enjoyable” —The Sun-Herald (Australia)

Cleaning up crime is all in a day’s work.

“A modern take on screwball crime-comedy” —The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)

“A duo of immense charm and sweetness” — The Age(Australia)

Fun-loving and flirtatious couple Nicola (Kat Stewart, Offspring) and Charlie Buchanan (Shaun Micallef, Full Frontal) run a cleaning service for crime scenes. They love their business—and each other—and find that closing cases comes just as naturally as cleaning them up.

Their work leads them to clues the police overlook, and their anonymity provides cover to follow-up on their hunches. Nicola’s intuition and Charlie’s head for arcane facts make them the perfect crime-solving team. With help from their straitlaced niece, Jess (Lucy Honigman), and the indulgence of overworked police detective Peter Vinetti (Jonny Pasvolsky, McLeod’s Daughters), they crack cases involving people from all walks of life, from zookeepers to plastic surgeons. Intricate mysteries and witty, romantic banter make these 13 episodes irresistibly entertaining.

Format: DVD
This is a review of the series only, not the DVD set. I've been watching Mr. and Mrs. Murder on Acorn TV, which has all 13 episodes available. I had not heard of the series and knew nothing about it when I started watching. But our family took to it right away. It's an Australian production, so you may not recognize any of the actors, unless you've seen the Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries series.

The action takes place in Melbourne, Victoria, and the title couple, Charlie (Shaun Micallef) and Nicola (Kat Stewart), run their own crime scene cleaning service. Since they appear on the spot right after the police are through investigating, they pick up any stray evidence and overlooked clues. Charlie is a fiftyish charmer who has a "half a degree" in an amazing number of subjects, and wife Nicola, fortyish, specializes in being very sympathetic. They "interview" suspects, consider motives, and jump to a lot of incorrect conclusions. Their niece, Jess (Lucy Honigman), who is living with them while she attends university to get her MBA, is regularly roped into helping them, usually to impersonate someone or break into someplace to steal critical evidence.

It's not very realistic, and that's acknowledged by the comic book style credits at the beginning of the show. But Mr. and Mrs. are fun to watch as they banter and solve crimes like Nick and Nora Charles. Jess is a perfect foil as the straight man for Charlie and Nicola. You probably won't have any trouble with the Australian accents, but there are subtitles which are helpful for references to unfamiliar place names, etc. (The subtitles are on the Acorn streaming and may NOT be available on the DVD.)

The series of 13 episodes premiered in Australia in early 2013, and has not been renewed, so this may well be the complete set.

I saw the entire series on Acorn TV and immediately fell in love with it!! This is a light hearted comedy/murder mystery series . The premise of this series is that Charlie and Nicola Buchannan are crime scene cleaners who are actually very good at solving the crimes that they have been hired to clean - especially since the DCI is usually not up to the task. Their niece Jess is often brought into their adventures. Charlie and Nicola have a loving and humorous relationship and work well together, often playing off each other's strengths. In addition to some intriguing mysteries, the viewer is also treated to some wonderful views of Australia.

This is a funny, delightful show and is appropriate for most ages. The level of violence depicted is minimal and there is very little, if any, foul language or explicit sexual situations. I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys British TV and is looking for a breezy, light mystery.

At least one reviewer dismissed this series as having "lame plots". The thing is ... the series is not so much about whodunit as it is about the incredible relationship between Charlie and his wife Nicola. If your ears can follow amusing dialogue tossed off deadpan in an accent that is not American, then you'll chortle through each episode and watch them all again for the sheer pleasure of it. Don't expect a police procedural or anything that is "dark" or "gritty". These are genuinely nice people whose lives are not spiralling out of control like the crime solving duo Scott and Bailey.

Charlie and his wife are specialists. They clean up crime scenes. To ilghten the dreariness of this unglamorous activity, they notice things ... and soon they're on the track of the real murderer, helped by a detective who suffers from unrequited affection for Nicola (leading to some tension between him and Charlie). Nicola's niece, Jess, is dragged away from her studies to help and her expressionless acceptance of her uncle's unconventional sleuthing techniques offers a counterpoint to the bubbling enthusiasm of Charlie. Charlie has had a couple of semesters of pretty much every subject under the sun, though without completing a degree in any of them, and his wide-ranging knowledge and good memory usually provide an essential element of the solution.

The interaction between Charlie and his wife is both funny and touching. To decide who will do less pleasant tasks they play rock, scissors, paper ... and Nicola always wins. After one such victory, Charlie tells her " You fascinate me", and one can feel that fascination throughout.

If you are not too sophisticated for "wholesome" entertainment, if you don't insist that your protagonists should be alcoholic or violent losers, and if you have a sense of humour that hasn't become fixated by Hollywood on toilet jokes, then do yourself a favour and watch this series.

Format: DVD
Fast humor like "Get Smart" "Airplane" "Ghostbusters".
Is it crime drama? Comedy? Romance? Reality scrub show?
It is satire; spoof; parody; lampoon; farce--combined with crime investigation led by a trauma cleaner married couple who are really good at being wed. Affection is but a thread among crime solving clues among solvents and forensic over-looks. There really are good murder mysteries "cleaned up."
Charlie (Shaun Micallef -also a creator, writer) and wife Nicola (Kat Stewart -Aussie star) have a live-in foxy niece Jess (Lucy Honigman). The 3 help the local Det. Vinetti solve his cases, while vacuuming, of course.
