Lovejoy

Lovejoy, Season 4

This delightful 80s and 90s series continues to premiere on BritBox through the month of June. It follows Ian McShane as Lovejoy, an antiques dealer with an abnormal talent for differentiating between valuable items and fakes, along with a shaky moral compass that gets him into all manner of trouble. 

The following seasons will premiere in June:

  • Season 4 – June 10th
  • Season 5 – June 24th

Season 6 is the final season, and based on the patterns so far, we would expect to see it follow in July or August – but there's been no official confirmation of that yet.

Blue Lights

Blue Lights, Season 2

This Belfast-based crime drama returns for a second season, this time following the officers as they handle a serious gangland feud. It's been a year since the fall of the McIntyre gang, but rival gangs have been quick to fill in the power vacuum. Grace (Sian Brooke, Good Omens), Annie (Katherine Devlin, The Dig) and Tommy (Nathan Braniff) are doing their best, and Constable Shane Bradley (Frank Blake, Sanditon) has been drafted in to help. Grace struggles to deal with her son’s absence and her own growing feelings for fellow officer Stevie (Martin McCann, Marcella), while Tommy is seduced by the world of intelligence policing. All around them, tensions are rising – leading to a violent final confrontation.

Grand Designs

Grand Designs, Season 19

Kevin McCloud returns to present another season full of daring, stylish, and expensive home building projects. Each project unfolds over a series of months or even years, with many projects getting derailed due to funds or personal issues. Series 19 follows self-builds all over the UK, from a sculptural home in Devon, to an ambitious renovation on a Scottish country estate and an eye-catching triangular home in Sussex.

POLICE HUNTING FOR BARRY PRUDOM AFTER HE KILLED A POLICEMAN
POLICE MANHUNT FOR BARRY PRUDOM, MALTON, NORTH YORKSHIRE, BRITAIN – 1982

Manhunt: The Phantom Cop Killer (2023)

For a few weeks in the summer of 1982, Barry Prudom was the single most wanted man in all of the UK. After shooting two police officers and a pensioner, a massive 1000-officer search party set out across West Yorkshire in search of the culprit. Having learned evasion and survival techniques on an SAS course, he managed to evade capture, earning the nickname “The Phantom”. Eventually, the man who taught him, Eddie “Jungle Eddie” McGee, stepped forward, and it was he who was tasked with finding the seemingly un-catchable man. 

This series is not to be confused with the Manhunt series on Acorn TV, which starred Martin Clunes as DCI Colin Sutton.

This raw series tells the story of two grieving strangers, Lloyd (Stephen Jones, Kin) and Áine (Elva Trill, Starstruck), whose worlds collide on a rainy night in Dublin when Lloyd notices Áine standing on Grattan Bridge. Fearing the worst, he decides to intervene. Over time, they realise they can each provide something the other needs, and a friendship begins to bloom.
