Based on renowned author P.D.

COMPETITION: Win Queens of Mystery Series 1 on DVD


Queens of Mystery Series 1  on DVD  - Released from 29th November

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies on DVD to give away.

Synopsis: 
Roll out the red carpet for the Emmy Award-nominated TV hit QUEENS OF MYSTERY, which makes its royal premiere on UK DVD this November, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

The bold and thrilling Acorn TV Original drama stars British acting favourites Julie Graham (The Bletchley Circle, Shetland, Penance), Siobhan Redmond (Unforgotten, The Replacement, Taggart) and Sarah Woodward (The Pale Horse,Quiz, The Politician’s Husband) as the eponymous queens, alongside Olivia Vinall (The Woman in White, Apple Tree Yard, Maigret) as their niece, Matilda Stone an ambitious Detective Sergeant who must solve crimes in the seemingly genteel region of Wildemarsh. 

Created by Julian Unthank (Doc Martin, New Tricks), this wickedly offbeat contemporary murder mystery series, combines bold visuals, quirky characters and fast-paced dialogue with darkly comic murders that will keep audiences guessing. 

We follow the entertaining adventures of Beth, Cat and Jane Stone, three crime-writing sisters, who give their 28-year-old detective niece a helping hand whether she wants it or not, as she tackles curious crimes for the Marsh Valley Police.  

They use their extensive knowledge of crime – both real and fictional – solving a slew of whodunit murders in their picturesque postcode.  But no matter how many cases they crack, the unsolved mystery that haunts them most, is the disappearance of Matilda’s mother. Between investigating murders from the curious to the bizarre and writing their own renowned novels, the three aunts also attempt to help their perennially single niece find love.

The series features a stellar British cast including Andrew Leung (Doctor Who) as the dashing Dr. Daniel Lynch and Rebecca Grant (Doctors, Holby City) as his girlfriend Natasha; Michael Elcock is Police Constable Terry Foster and Martin Trenaman (The Inbetweeners) is the dry and put-upon Inspector Derek Thorne.

A fantastic line-up of guest stars includes Selina Cadell (Doc Martin), Omid Djalili (Dickensian, The Mummy), Chu Omambala (Liar), and Michelle Collins (Eastenders, Coronation Street) alongside: Frances Barber (Silk, Father Brown), Josette Simon (Broadchurch, Casualty) and Con O’Neill (Happy Valley, The Tunnel).

Make way for the Queens of Mystery as the fabulous first series arrives on 29 November 2021 and coincides with the series two premiere on streaming service Acorn TV.

COMPETITION: Win All Creatures Great & Small Series 1 & 2 on DVD



All Creatures Great & Small Series 1 & 2 on DVD  - Released from 29th November

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 2 copies to give away.

Synopsis: 
The charming, much-loved All Creatures Great and Small, based on the hugely popular novels of James Herriot (aka James Alfred Wight OBE), returns for a second series of veterinary adventures, budding romances, and life in the sleepy town of Darrowby, Yorkshire with its rolling fields, and colourful community.

The first series captivated the nation, ranking as Channel 5’s number one British drama of all time and now the much-anticipated series two arrives. Following its run on Channel 5, it comes to DVD alongside the Complete Series 1 & 2 Box set on 22 November 2021, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

We return three months later to follow the trials and tribulations and lives and loves of the locals, surrounded by the beautiful Yorkshire dales, where farmers and vets alike savour a foaming pint at the end of a hard day’s work.

After Helen Anderson (Rachael Shenton – Hollyoaks) jilted her intended, Hugh Helton (Matthew Lewis – Harry Potter), at the altar, she, and James (Nicholas Ralph - The Most Reluctant Convert C.S. Lewis) can finally address their feelings for each other.  But it can be tricky in such a close-knit community where not everyone takes too kindly to Helen’s decision. Prompted by James’ and Helen’s affections, Siegfried (Samuel West – Darkest Hour), Tristan (Callum Woodhouse – The Durrells) and Mrs Hall (Anna Madeley – Deadwater Fell) also reflect on their places in the world, meanwhile a trip back home to Glasgow forces James to choose between duty and love…

Series One begins in 1937, Britain where we meet James Herriot, a newly qualified animal surgeon who moves to a small-town in Yorkshire to begin his first job with the irritable but kind veterinarian Siegfried Farnon. Once there, he quickly discovers that treating the animals is as much about looking out for their owners: there are plenty of people and animals to care for, challenges to meet, and life-affirming lessons to learn along the way.

All Creatures Great and Small will love this soul-soothing and heart-warming family favourite.

COMPETITION: Win Angela Black on DVD


Angela Black on DVD  - Released from 15th November

And to celebrate we have a great competition for you and 3 copies to give away.

Synopsis: 
Delve into the depths of deceit and control in a brand-new gripping psychological thriller, Angela Black that sees lauded star Joanne Froggatt play the eponymous lead. Pegged by The Guardian and Grazia as one of the season’s finest upcoming TV series, the six-part series arrives on ITV this Autumn and is set to receive its UK DVD debut from Acorn Media International on 15 November 2021.

From the outside, Angela Black’s (Froggatt – three times Emmy-nominated actor and star of Downtown Abbey, Liar) life seems perfect. She lives in a beautiful London home, spends her days volunteering at a dogs’ shelter, has a handsome, hard-working – and seemingly charming – husband, Olivier, (Michiel Huisman – Game of Thrones, The Flight Attendant) and a beautiful family. But behind the closed doors of blissful domesticity, lies a very different, much darker story: Angela has been a victim of domestic abuse for years and is trapped in a marriage that she can’t escape.

That is, until a private investigator, Ed, (BIFA-award winner Samuel Adewunmi – The Hatton Garden Job, The Last Tree) approaches her unannounced to reveal some shocking and sinister information about her husband, and her life is about to change forever. Angela must decide whether it’s time to fight for her freedom or take flight: but who can she trust?

Described as Hitchcockian, this darkly twisted tale penned by award-winning writers Jack and Harry Williams (The Missing, Liar, The Widow) will have you on the edge of your seat, with its captivating and at times heart-wrenching exploration of deceit, devastation and defence.

Angela Black is an enthralling drama that demands your attention.
