World on Fire

Baptiste

Grantchester: Season 5

Premieres June 14 at 9 p.m. (ETV)

With God on his side and a motorcycle to ride, Grantchester’s crime-fighting clergyman Will Davenport teams up (voluntarily!) with Geordie Keating to solve a series of darker, grittier crimes than ever before…and face the challenges of celibacy head-on when journalist Ellie Harding enters the picture!

Endeavour: Season 7

Returns with three new mysteries in 2020

When we last saw Endeavour Morse at the end of Season 6, he was settling in at the station and the house that would become home to his character in the Inspector Morse series. But it doesn’t ensure happiness for our cerebral and solitary hero, who will face a series of enigmatic murders.

Unforgotten: Season 3 (Season 4 is in production)
Season 3 sees Nicola Walker (Last Tango In Halifax) and Sanjeev Bhaskar (Goodness Gracious Me) reprise their roles as DCI Cassie Stuart and DI Sunil “Sunny” Khan as they investigate another emotionally-charged cold case.
