A few end-of-year options

This blog has been very short on postings lately as I’ve been working on getting my crime novel—Too Far to Fall—ready for publication after it’s long and arduous journey through the wacky world of publishing. I’ll post my cover and a blurb once it’s out in the world.

In the meantime, in the next few weeks both ITV and the BBC should release their Christmas promos. A Grantchester Christmas Special has already been announced and who knows what else might be in store!

To tide you over you could check out The Night Manager on Amazon Prime, Doctor Foster on Netflix, or one of the new Australian crime dramas currently available on Acorn TV—Winter, Jack Irish, or Deep Water.

For lighter fare, and also on Acorn TV, there’s Agatha Raisin (based on the books by M.C. Beaton), and the New Zealand based The Brokenwood Mysteries.

 

 

Grantchester Christmas Special

Filming will begin soon for 6 new Grantchester episodes and a Christmas special that will air this coming holiday season.

ITV promises “a festive, snow-filled Christmas episode full of emotion and drama.” Sounds good–even if probably not very holiday happy ending-y.

For more info on what to expect for the rest of series 3 go here.

No word yet on a PBS transmission date.

Grantchester, Vera and Janet King

Just a reminder that the second series of Grantchester (already underway on ITV) will begin airing on PBS on Sunday, March 27.

On Acorn TV you can enjoy the most recent series of Vera starting Monday, March 21, with a new episode (four total) up every Monday.

Also coming to Acorn is Janet King.  This Australian courtroom drama staring A Place to Call Home’s Marta Dusseldorp, will begin on Monday, March 14 with the first of eight episodes.
