As we approach the month of March, we can look forward to another great month of shows on Acorn TV – including the return of the much-loved Canadian series Murdoch Mysteries.
If you don't already have Acorn TV, you can sign up HERE. If your smart TV isn't compatible with the Acorn TV app, or if you just prefer the convenience of Amazon's Prime Video platform and combined billing (for those who use multiple streaming services via Amazon), you can sign up HERE instead.
Regardless of how you subscribe, it's easy to cancel ONLINE when and if you choose. Both options have the same programming (we've checked on a number of occasions), but some people report that one or the other seems to give them a better streaming experience – and Amazon occasionally has a very slight delay when adding or removing shows.

Based on TV presenter Graham Norton's novel of the same name, Holding takes place in the sort of tiny Irish town where nothing much ever happens – until it does.

As he investigates the case, the secrets of townspeople start to emerge, and PJ will have to come to terms with his own demons. The series also features Charlene McKenna (Bloodlands) and Siobhan McSweeney (Derry Girls).

Happy Valley, Season 1
Sarah Lancashire stars as Catherine Cawood, a West Yorkshire police sergeant who's faced more than her fair share of tragedy and hardship. Her community of Calder Valley is also known as Happy Valley for its drug problems – and her only daughter committed suicide after giving birth to a son.
Catherine believes local drug dealer and all-around bad guy Tommy Lee Royce (James Norton, Grantchester) is responsible for the sequence of events that led to her daughter's death. When she learns he's been released from prison, she makes it her mission to find him – not realising he'll be central to another case she's working on.
Count Arthur Strong, Seasons 1-3 (2013 to 2017)
This modern British comedy calls to mind the classic Britcoms of days gone by, following former actor Count Arthur Strong as he holds court in the local greasy spoon. He and his friends spend their days coming up with ill-conceived schemes to earn money to buy tea. At the same time, he's convinced his next big break is just around the corner.
Faking Hitler (2021)
This German language miniseries follows Stern's star reporter Gerd Heidemann as he tries to get a major scoop. Meanwhile, Konrad Kujau makes a living selling fake Nazi memorabilia. His latest plan is to create fake Hitler diaries.
When one of those diaries lands in Heidemann's hands, he becomes determined to acquire them for Stern.
Ireland Coast & Country (2022)
This unique Irish series tells the story of modern Ireland through a variety of its most passionate and interesting people. From foragers and vermouth makers to edible flower farmers and fine dining food trucks, it's a look at an Ireland we rarely see on typical travel and history shows.

The Larkins, Season 2
This updated adaptation of the novel “The Darling Buds of May” by HE Bates follows the wheeling and dealing Larkins family. Set in the 1950s, the series is a mix of village life and family adventures. Bradley Walsh (Law & Order UK), Joanna Scanlan (No Offence) and Sabrina Bartlett (Bridgerton) are among the stars.
New episodes for March will be released as follows:
- March 20th – Episodes 1 & 2 of 6

- “The Trap” – It's BBQ weather, and no-one throws a party like the Larkins – everyone is welcome, including the dubious Jerebohms. Truths and tension are served alongside the sausages and burgers, and a trap is set to bring Pop (Bradley Walsh, Coronation Street, Law & Order: UK) down.
- March 27th – Episodes 3 & 4 of 6
- “Love and Violence” – Pop is in denial, and Ma issues him some tough love while playing Cupid between Primrose and Rev Candy. Pop's old friend Fruity Pears arrives to the village with his fairground in tow, but it's not all candy floss and laughs.
- “Wheels of Justice” – Ma and the children are trying to convince Pop to take the court case seriously, but he has more fun things on his mind, like finishing the swimming pool.
