Sister Boniface Mysteries Starts Filming Fourth Season, Confirms Christmas Special

Our prayers are answered! Today, we found out not only that the fourth installment in the Sister Boniface Mysteries has started filming, but that we’ll also get a Christmas special later this year.

The show once again stars Lorna Watson as the Vespa-driving Catholic nun who solves crimes as a side hustle. [ed note: what’s the deal with pop cultural Catholics and Vespas?]

Here’s the official synopsis of the upcoming special and season:

Returning by popular demand, this year’s feature length festive special features the Great Slaughter Amateur Dramatics Society (GSADS) pantomime. This year it’s Cinderella and with the appointment of a celebrity director the pressure is on to deliver their biggest and best performance yet. Rehearsals commence but soon cast members start dropping like flies. Can Sister Boniface catch the killer before they strike again? Will GSADS give the public the festive theatrical treat they deserve? And, most importantly, can Sam and Felix pull off a polka in a pantomime horse? 

Elsewhere in the series a bucking bronco goes haywire on the set of a game show, a killer scarecrow stalks the streets of Great Slaughter, the Scottish invade, a femme fatale drops to her death in a stunt gone wrong and to top it all CC Lowsley (Robert Dawes) has arranged something called “team building.” Meanwhile Reverend Mother Adrian (Carolyn Pickles) is keeping a secret, one that could tear the Sisters lives apart as they know it…

“I’m thrilled that TV’s favorite forensic nun is returning for a fourth series,” Neil Irvine, Executive Producer at BBC Studios, said in a statement. “The alchemy created by Jude, Lorna and our wonderful cast and Midlands crew continues to delight viewers worldwide. This series sees a serial killer on the loose at the Christmas Pantomime and a threat to the convent itself. I can’t wait for the audience to find out if this is the end for St Vincent’s…”

In addition to Watson, the show stars Max Brown as DI Sam Gillespie, Jerry Iwu as DS Felix Livingstone, and Ami Metcalf as WPC Peggy Button. The guest cast for the upcoming season includes Les Dennis (Coronation Street), Katherine Kingsley (The Larkins), Martyn Ellis (Renegade Nell), Mina Anwar (The Sarah Jane Adventures), Ed Birch (The Witcher), and Daniel Laurie (Call the Midwife).

The feature-length Christmas special is written by show creator Jude Tindall and directed by Paul Gibson. It will air in December 2024 and be available on BritBox International. Season Four will premiere sometime in 2025 on BritBox as well. icon-paragraph-end
