Grace, Season 4

John Simm (Life on Mars) returns for another four feature-length episodes based on Peter James's bestselling DS Roy Grace novels. This season, the action will follow the following four books in the series (with links below to each book in case you want more plot details):

  • Week 1: “Dead Man's Time” – DS Grace finds himself immersed in the shady world of England's antiques trade (a bit like Lovejoy, but darker). 
  • Week 2: “Want You Dead” – DS Grace deals with a case involving an obsessive psychopath, but nothing is quite as it seems.
  • Week 3: “You Are Dead” – DS Grace handles a case involving dead young women…and skeletal remains from decades ago.
  • Week 4: “Love You Dead” – DS Grace and his team need to trace a woman who could be in grave danger after a suspected mafia hit.

Season 5 of Suspects will premiere July 3rd

Suspects, Season 5 (2014 to 2016)

This heavily improvised crime drama uses a documentary style of filming as it follows a team of London detectives who deal with a variety of serious cases. Topics include murder, missing persons, overdoses, sex crime, child abuse, and more. Cast members include Fay Ripley as DI Martha Bellamy, Damien Molony as DS Jack Weston, Lenora Crichlow as DS Alisha Brooks, and Clare-Hope Ashitey as DS Charlotte Steele. 

Season 5 opens with a huge shock, but we won't spoil it since we know many people will still be working through the earlier seasons. The whole team is deeply affected the events, and new blood is brought in to help the team. Unfortunately, it won't be long before they realise not everyone is working towards the same agenda…

After first premiering on BritBox in June, seasons will continue to premiere in July as follows: 

  • Season 5 (FINAL) – July 3rd

Capital

Capital (2015)

Based on John Lanchester's acclaimed novel, this miniseries brings us into the lives of the residents of a single street in South London as they navigate personal changes during a tense time in the neighbourhood. Starring Toby Jones (Detectorists) and Rachael Stirling (Detectorists), the series offers a unique take on community and the impact of gentrification.

Petunia Howe (Gemma Jones, Bridget Jones’s Diary), a long-time resident, faces the uncertainties of aging and health troubles. Banker Roger Yount (Jones) and his wife Arabella (Stirling) grapple with financial pressures and the stress of keeping up appearances. Meanwhile, immigrant shopkeeper Ahmed (Adeel Akhtar, Four Lions) and his family deal struggle to fit in while also keeping their business afloat.

When each household on the street receives a mysterious postcard with the ominous message, “We want what you have”, it's the catalyst for big changes.

The Responder, Season 2

Martin Freeman (Sherlock) returns to the role of Chris Carson in this gritty, Liverpool-based crime drama. Season 2 picks up six months after the events of season 1, with Carson trying to improve as both a father and a police officer. Unfortunately, the continuing trauma of his job makes it hard to get his life in order – so he seeks a daytime position. At the same time, his former partner Rachel is also attempting to better herself, but she holds a lot of anger about her time working with Carson. It's only once she works with a number of other coppers that she realises things might not have been as bad as she thought.

This popular reality series offers round-the-clock coverage of modern-day police units as they investigate some of the UK's most serious and challenging cases.

Callan comes to BritBox July 30th

Callan, Seasons 1-2

Edward Woodward (The Wicker Man) stars as David Callan in this classic action-spy drama set against the backdrop of the Cold War. Callan is a brooding and complex hero, a former soldier turned reluctant spy. He works for a shadowy government agency known as “The Section”, and while his role seems to be similar of an MI-5 agent, he's authorised to use considerably more ruthless methods to achieve his goals. Constantly at odds with both his superior, Hunter, and the questionable morals involved in his missions, it's a psychologically complex series that remains relevant even today.
