In addition to Inspector Lewis on June 16th and Endeavour on July 7th, the following PBS premiere dates have been announced:
On Sunday, August 18th one-off The Lady Vanishes will air. This is a new dramatization of the novel The Wheel Spins — first translated into film by Hitchcock.
Also in August, from Sunday the 25th, Masterpiece will show Silk – a legal drama starring Rupert Penry-Jones (MI-5, Whitechapel).
Starting Sunday, September 8th will be the charming comedy/drama Last Tango in Halifax starring Derek Jacobi (Brother Cadfael!) and Anne Reid. The six part series is about childhood sweethearts who reunite after nearly 60 years. An old theme perhaps, but done very well here.
Overlapping with Last Tango and creating very good Sunday viewing, the three new episodes of Foyle’s War will air starting Sunday, September 15th.
Next is The Paradise, a period drama based on a novel by Émile Zola, which takes place in one of the early department stores — it actually aired before Mr. Selfridge in the UK. It will begin its eight episode series on Sunday, October 6th.
PBS will make all of these episodes available online for a limited time after their airdate.
