New Crime Drama on Acorn TV

Those of you with an Acorn TV membership will be able to enjoy a whole host of new British crime dramas over the next few weeks.

The complete series 7 of George Gently is already available, as is each episode of series 5 of Vera.

The first two episodes of new dysfunctional cop/serial killer drama, Chasing Shadows, are up, with the final two arriving over the next two weeks.

Finally, Partners in Crime, the BBC’s adaptation of two of Agatha Christie’s Tommy and Tuppence novels, will become available starting September 3rd.

New Sherlock Clip!

Check out the brief clip here.

Sherlock is due to return to PBS/BBC for a standalone Special and a new series of three episodes. No airdate has been mentioned yet beyond a “coming soon-ish”, although the snow in the clip makes me wonder if the Special might air during the holiday season.

Soon-ish might not be soon enough for fans but it’s certainly better than nothing! I’ll send along more details as they become available.
