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.

New TV Crime Drama

The Fall    — series 2 available now on Netflix

Foyle’s War – final season starts streaming on Acorn TV on Monday, February 2nd

The Fall Available Online Now

Just a reminder to North American viewers that as of today (May 28th) all five episodes of the first series of the BBC’s serial killer crime drama The Fall are available streaming online on Netflix.

The BBC’s deal with Netflix gives viewers the opportunity to watch the series while it’s still being broadcast in the UK.

Also good news for fans is that a second series has been commissioned.  It appears that the first series may end on a cliff hanger so that the second series will pick up with the same killer rather than with a fresh case.

Happy marathon viewing!

New BBC Crime Drama The Fall

The BBC’s five-part crime drama The Fall starring Gillian Anderson will premiere on Monday May 13th.  Anderson’s DSI Stella Gibson comes to Belfast from the MET to help catch a serial killer.  From the outset the audience knows who the killer is, so this is less a whodunit than a can they catch him type of drama.

The good news for US, Canadian and Latin American fans is that Netflix is going to make the show available soon after it airs in the UK — apparently on May 28th.

If you can’t view the trailer on the BBC site you can catch a slick teaser trailer here.
