Every week, I get a question from a patron on when the next series (season) of a British TV show is coming out. This week, I thought I would provide some updates.
Have you done the Broadchurch/Gracepoint marathon yet? It was interesting to see the differences from the British to the American versions.
I have just finished watching the second series of Broadchurch. What a trial! Broadchurch will be filming its third and final series this summer. David Tennant and Olivia Colman will be coming back as the detectives. The vicar, the Latimers and the newspaper editor have been signed. Some new faces will be coming on board. Julie Hesmondhalgh (Hayley from Coronation Street) will be joining in a significant role. This series will focus on a new crime that has devastating consequences for the town. It will air in the UK in early 2017.
On the weekend, I was riveted by series 2 of The Fall. Jamie Dornan is supremely creepy as Paul Spector. Filming has been completed on final series 3. The last 5 episodes will be shown in the UK late this year and possible on Netflix a couple of months after that.
The fourth and final season of Mr. Selfridge is currently being shown on PBS. Katherine Kelly (Becky from Coronation Street) will have more airtime this series.
Have you watched 'the Paradise', the poor man's version of Mr. Selfridge. the BBC axed it in 2014 after two series because it couldn't compete with Mr. Selfridge. If you haven't had a chance, check it out.
From time to time, I will update you on your favourite Brit television shows. All series mentioned here are available from the Lincoln Public Library.
I'll be watching!
