New Shows Still to Come This Year

Luther may have concluded its final series this week in suitably operatic fashion (although US viewers will have to wait until September) and Endeavour completes its run this Sunday on PBS, but never fear — there’s more to look forward to.

Here are just a few of the coming -soons:

BBC cop dramedy New Tricks will begin its tenth series next week on July 30th.  This time out the series may see a few episodes more heavily weighted on the drama side as two of the main characters are being written out this season.

On PBS The Lady Vanishes will play on August 18th and series seven of Foyle’s War, set in the post war era with Foyle now working for MI5, will begin broadcasting on September 15th.

Also, not yet scheduled but said to be airing this year:  the third series of Vera and the fourth series of Whitechapel both on ITV, and the BBC’s Quirke about a 1950s Dublin pathologist/investigator starring Gabriel Byrne (The Usual Suspects, In Treatment) and Michael Gambon (Dumbledore from Harry Potter and many other excellent things).  The Quirke DVD has a release date of August 26th so presumably the three 90 minute episodes will air soon.

Of course there will also be series four of Downton Abbey, The Paradise series 2, Sherlock (maybe), and more.  As dates and times become available I’ll pass them along.
