It hardly seems right that we're already looking at the January BritBox schedule, but the calendar says we're nearing the end of December so it must be right. The new month brings a couple more seasonal specials, but also some very high-profile premieres – including the new season of Father Brown.
Don't have a BritBox subscription? You can sign up HERE on their website, or HERE on Amazon Video. Both options offer the same content, but some people find one or the other offers better compatibility with their devices or internet service provider.
Sometimes, there's a brief delay for new shows to arrive on the Prime version of the channel – so if TV is a big part of your life and you really want to see every show immediately after it comes on, we recommend going direct (even if it means buying a Roku or similar device to get it on your TV).
