November brings a number of new shows to Acorn TV, including two brand-new Acorn TV Originals. With the weather getting colder and the nights getting longer, new shows are a welcome addition! 

If you don't already have an Acorn TV subscription, you can sign up on their website HERE. If you have a smart TV that isn't compatible with their own app (like a Samsung) or if you prefer to subscribe through Amazon's Prime Video service, you can sign up HERE instead. 

Either way, you get a free 7-day trial, and both offer easy online cancellation if you decide it's not the thing for you. Both options have the same programming, though some people on slower internet connections have reported slightly smoother streaming via Amazon (along with an occasional delay of a few hours for new programming to appear).

Manhunt: The Night Stalker (Season 2)

Martin Clunes returns to play former London Metropolitan Police detective DCI Colin Sutton. This season dramatises the real story of the investigation into a burglar and serial rapist whose 17-year streak left elderly South Londoners living in fear. Sutton arrived late to the investigation, but he managed to solve the case in just weeks.

If you don't like the way typical true crime-based dramas tend to build up the criminals as masterminds, this series is the antidote. Instead of elevating the criminals, the producers have been careful to focus on the diligent efforts of investigators.

Upcoming Episodes

  • November 1 – Episode 3 of 4
  • November 8 – Series finale

The Witnesses

The Witnesses (2020)

This German crime drama explores the power of memories – and how little they can be trusted. When a 10-year-old girl is kidnapped from a crowded museum in Berlin, the family and police await a ransom demand that never comes. No one claims responsibility, and there's nothing to go on except the memories of eye witnesses. 

The child's prominent father asks researcher Dr. Jasmin Braun (Alexandra Maria Lara) to step in and help with the investigation. With time working against her, she'll attempt to evaluate the memories of eight key witnesses in hopes of reconstructing the crime and returning the girl home safely. Binge premiere.

The Madame Blanc Mysteries (2021)

This Acorn TV Original Series follows Jean White, a well-respected antiques dealer who runs a successful business in the beautiful county of Cheshire, England. The series begins on a rainy morning in England when Jean learns her husband Rory died on his way home from one of their favourite antique sourcing spots in the South of France. 

She soon finds that not only is her husband dead, but everything they had is gone. The shop has been re-mortgaged, everything valuable has been pawned off, and since she thought they were doing well, she spent all the money in their joint account on Rory's funeral. Even the valuable ring he was supposed to be bringing home is gone. Her solicitor informs her that the only thing left is their cottage in the French antiques hub of Saint Victoire. With that in mind, she does the only logical thing: she heads there to get some answers.

The premiere schedule for this one is as follows:

  • November 15th – Episodes 1 & 2
  • November 22nd – Episode 3 of 6
