We just started The Good Karma Hospital on Acorn TV. This medical drama follows doctor Ruby Walker who travels from England to India looking for a job and a distraction from a bad breakup. Arriving at an under-resourced hospital, Ruby must learn to cope with her eccentric patients and coworkers.
Our latest watch is Jo, an English language French police procedural series. It stars Jean Reno in his first TV role. Some cool Paris shots, but we can really only recommend this a "filler."
Our latest BritBox find is Murder in Provence. It is based on the books of ML Longworth with a setting in southern France. Check out our take on this new show.
The Chelsea Detective is a new Acorn TV original that was released last week. It is a police procedural set in the posh Chelsea neighborhood of London. We enjoyed Episode 1 and will be watching the rest of the series.
Our latest BritBox find is the Sister Boniface Mysteries. This Father Brown spinoff is a light-hearted murder mystery set deep in the 1960s British countryside. It stars Lorna Watson as a clever, Vespa-driving, crime-solving Catholic nun.
We wanted to take a little break from all of the "mystery, mayhem and death" shows that we have been watching on BritBox and Acorn TV lately. We found some travelogues featuring Martin Clunes that filled the bill.
Our latest British crime show find is Shetland. It is set in Shetland off the northern coast of Scotland. The plotlines and characters are engaging and the setting is stunning. Recommended for your watch list.
Our latest find on BritBox is Wycliffe, a police procedural that originally aired from 1993 to 1998. Many of the shows from this period seem dated, but we are enjoying this one so far.
Our latest Acorn TV find is Dalgliesh, a new series that was just launched. It is based on the Adam Dalgliesh novels by P.D. James. If you like British crime mysteries, we recommend putting this one on your watch list.
We enjoyed Martin Clunes in Manhunt, so we decided to try Doc Martin. We had had it on the consideration list for a bit. Enjoying stories and Cornwall settings so far.
Our latest find on Acorn TV is Suspects, a British police procedural show that aired from 2014-2016. There are five seasons (or series as the British refer to them).
Our latest find on AcornTV is the show Manhunt. It features Martin Clunes from Doc Martin. Clunes plays DCI Colin Sutton, the lead detective on two cases investigated by the Met that captivated Britain.
