Sister Boniface Mysteries – Season 2 (available from 4th April 2023)
The acclaimed, light-hearted murder-mystery series returns, along with its eponymous Vespa-driving, crime-solving Catholic nun.
It’s the 1960s and Sister Boniface (Lorna Watson, The IT Crowd), with her aptitude for detective work, is an invaluable asset to the Great Slaughter Police Department.
Jesus of Nazareth (available from 6th April 2023)
Robert Powell (The Italian Job) stars in the epic 1977 drama chronicling the birth, life, crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. With Laurence Olivier (Rebecca), James Earl Jones (Star Wars) and Ian McShane (Deadwood).
An Interview with Brian Cox (available from 11th April 2023)
Award-winning actor Brian Cox (Succession, King Lear) sits down for an exclusive, in-depth interview on his life and career. From his early years in Scotland and Shakespearean beginnings to his contemporary roles across film and television, no stone is unturned in this heartfelt interview with the iconic actor.
Blue/Orange (available from 11th April 2023)
Based on the award-winning play by Joe Penhall, Blue/Orange follows a young doctor (John Simm, Grace) who clashes with an older colleague (Brian Cox, Succession) about the condition of a mental patient (Shaun Parkes, Small Axe).
In a London psychiatric hospital, an enigmatic patient claims to be the son of an African dictator – a story that becomes unnervingly plausible. Blue/Orange is an incendiary tale of race, madness and a Darwinian power struggle at the heart of a dying National Health Service.
Bob Servant Independent – Season 1 (available from 11th April 2023)
When Broughty Ferry’s MP is decapitated in a car crash, the resulting by-election receives an unlikely candidate. Local cheeseburger tycoon Bob Servant (Brian Cox, Succession) launches an eccentric campaign, managed by hapless right-hand man Frank (Jonathan Watson, Two Doors Down).
Over the series, Bob and Frank battle with slick English candidate Nick Edwards (Rufus Jones, W1A) and his wife (Pollyanna McIntosh, The Walking Dead) for the votes of a bewildered Broughty Ferry public.
Saltwater (available from 11th April 2023)
The ups and downs in the lives of a widowed fish and chip shop owner and his three children. College student Carmel (Valerie Spelman, Call Girl), is involved with her philosophy lecturer, while her younger brother Joe (Laurence Kinlan, Marcella) is constantly in trouble at school.
As well as running the shop and handling his kids, George (Brian Cox, Succession) must find a way to pay off his debt to a dangerous bookie, so eldest son Frank (Peter MacDonald, The Batman), decides to help out, staging a daring – and inept – robbery.
Grace – Season 3 (available from 20th April 2023)
Based on the bestselling novels of Peter James, John Simm (Life on Mars) returns as the troubled but unyielding DS Roy Grace as he solves even more mind bending crimes along the Brighton coast and walks a career tightrope by using his instincts and unorthodox methods to get results.
