Genre: Mystery

Everyone’s favourite mystery-solving nun is back for some Christmas-themed sleuthing.

When The Star of the East is stolen from its safe and a passenger is discovered murdered, Sister Boniface uses her considerable skills to solve the mystery. She must decide who among the suspects is responsible. But with little signs of rescue and a failing generator, passengers must contend with a more pressing issue – freezing to death.

Lorna Watson (The Wrong Door, IT Crowd ) returns as TV’s favourite vespa driving, crime-solving, Catholic nun.

With a star-studded guest cast including Rupert Vansittart (Game of Thrones, Gentleman Jack), Siobhan Redmond (Queens of Mystery, Two Doors Down) and Timothy West (Last Tango in Halifax, Gentleman Jack).
