Yippety-Skippety. The wait is over. Alexander McCall Smith's delightful series, "The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" comes to HBO on Sunday nights at 7 p.m.
I've been a fan of Mma Precious Ramotswe, the series' main character, for a long time. We've run reviews on all the books ... and I've interviewed Mr. McCall-Smith on several occasions. He is a lovely gentleman who was raised in Botswana and stays true to their traditions as he writes.
Can't wait to see how jazz singer Jill Scott handles the role of Mma Ramotswe. She is one of my favorite fictional characters.
