New Crime Drama — Happy Valley and Hinterland

Two new crime dramas begin next week on the BBC.

Happy Valley is a six-parter about the botched kidnapping of a young girl. You can watch a promo here and then tune in for the first episode on Tuesday, April 29th at 9.

Hinterland is set in Wales. DCI Tom Mathias, fresh from the Met in London, will investigate four separate crimes. The first concerns the dark past of a former children’s home. The show will air on Monday, April 28th at 9. Here’s a promo.

 

Interesting Fact: The filming of Hinterland appears to have been quite the undertaking – brutal weather aside; they had to film all the scenes with dialogue twice. Once in English and once in Welsh!

Reminder: Series 2 of The Bletchley Circle and Series 3 of Call the Midwife are currently airing on Sundays on PBS. You can catch up on the first few episodes of both online.

Endeavour on PBS

Don’t worry North American Endeavour fans – you don’t have to wait too long until series two airs on PBS. Young Morse is set to return starting Sunday, June 29th.

Also beginning on the 29th will be series two of Last Tango in Halifax, which will air in the hour before Endeavour.

Vera’s Back!

Series four of ITV’s Vera returns with four new episodes starting Sunday, April 27th at 8. You can watch a promo here.

In the first episode, On Harbour Street, Vera and her team investigate a murder that takes place on a crowded train.

Looks like it will be another gorgeous, gloomy, deadly series!
