There’s plenty to keep you entertained on Acorn TV:

Something cosy

There’s a reason quintessential mystery series Midsomer Murders has been going strong since 1997 – with its eccentric country town characters, idyllic chocolate box villages and horrific (yet never gory) crimes a mystery binge isn’t complete without a visit to Midsomer County and Detective Chief Inspector Barnaby.

While you’ll find plenty of realistic and shocking crime scenes on TV, where else but Midsomer does death come from being crushed by a wheel of cheese, drowning in a cauldron of soup or being bludgeoned with a slide projector?

The gripping drama

The harrowing story of a small town rocked by the brutal death of a child. Broadchurch is an impeccably crafted drama for those who prefer their mysteries more grounded in reality.

Olivia Coleman and David Tennant lead an incredibly talented cast through the aftermath and fight to bring 11-year-old Danny’s killer to justice amongst swirling accusations, clamouring media and the shockwaves of grief.

Something surprising

Acorn TV original Dead Still is unique in every sense of the word – part costume-drama, part macabre mystery with a solid dash of gallows humour. The series follows unlikely protagonist, memorial photographer Brock Blennerhasset whose famous skill capturing images of the recently deceased draws the attention of a detective investigating a local criminal trying to cash in on the death photography game.

While unlikely detectives – gardeners, pensioners, priests – are a staple of the mystery genre, Brock may be the first unwilling detective who steadfastly refuses to help, even as the bodies are stacking up.

The modern marvel

While British mysteries have taught us that anyone can make an unexpectedly great detective, PR Maven Agatha Raisin (Ashley Jensen, Extras) certainly doesn’t look the part.

Retiring early from London to the quirky Cotswolds Agatha quickly finds herself making enemies and becoming a murder suspect after her entry in the village’s annual quiche competition kills a local philanderer.

Reasons to watch #1. A sassy heroine with a fabulous shoe collection #2. Hilarious bumbling cops #3. The best of British weird-and-wonderful-ness.

The classic Queen of Crime

No mystery binge could be complete without a murder from the Queen of Crime herself and Acorn TV now offers all six series of Agatha Christie’s Marple.

The ultimate amateur sleuth, Miss Marple brings her shrewd intelligence and lifetime of studying human nature to solving any crime, all pulled off in her trademark tweeds.

Make the most of our new lockdown and binge-up some awesome drama at Acorn TV.
