Whitstable Pearl (Series 2)

The third and fourth episodes air on Monday, December 5, and the final two episodes air on December 12; the entire season is then available for binge-watching.

The second season of Whitstable Pearl, which is based on the well-known book series by Julie Wassmer, finds Pearl (Kerry Goldiman, After Life) prioritizing her detective work and changing from a chef who solves crimes to a full-time investigator who also happens to own a restaurant—the titular Whitstable Pearl. Investigations conducted by DCI Mike McGuire (Howard Charles, Shadow and Bone, Top Boy) and Pearl’s cases cross paths.

Their competitiveness and intense attraction for one another fuel their relationship. When they compete, tensions rise and sparks fly. They make an excellent team when they collaborate.

The Madame Blanc Mysteries – Season 2 Christmas Special

Premieres Monday 26 December.

In the Christmas-themed opening episode of the upcoming second season, renowned and admired antiques dealer Jean White (played by Cold Call and Mount Pleasant creator Sally Lindsay) makes a triumphant comeback after escaping an assassination attempt by the cunning Barbara.

Once more, Jean’s knowledge of antiquities is the key to resolving a string of murders and mysteries set against the picturesque French village of Saint Victoire.

The Chief of Police Caron (Alex Gaumond, The Syndicate), who finds himself on the other side of the interview table accused of a crime he didn’t commit, needs Jean’s help in the season opener.

Hailed as “Netflix for the Anglophile” by NPR, AMC Networks’ Acorn TV is the streaming service offering a carefully curated, quality slate of compelling UK and international TV series, all streaming ad-free on demand.
