Over 6.3 million viewers in the U.K. tuned in to Anthony Minghella’s final television project, “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency,” when it aired Easter Sunday on BBC1. “Agency,” which attracted 6.3 million viewers and a 27% share of the audience in its 9 p.m. slot, next airs as a backdoor pilot on HBO. Starring R&B singer Jill Scott, the drama centers on Precious Ramotswe, who sets up Botswana’s first all-ladies detective agency after the death of her father. The broadcast attracted almost twice the viewing of the nearest competitor, the ITV1 crime thriller “He Kills Coppers,” which attracted 3.8 million viewers and a 15% audience share.
