The weather's getting better, summer's almost here…and there's another great new month of British TV ahead on Acorn TV. Here at the IHBTV headquarters, we're most excited about Series 2 of Miss Fisher's Modern Mysteries + another series of Julia Bradbury's Wainwright Walks – but there's a bit of something for everyone in the new schedule.
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 app (like a Samsung) or 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 for you. Both options have the same programming, though some people on slower internet connections have reported slightly smoother streaming on Amazon (and occasionally, a delay of a few hours for new programming to appear).

June 7th Premieres
Miss Fisher's Modern Murder Mysteries, Season 2
This delightful 1960s-based spinoff of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries will return for a second season on June 7th. It will premiere with episodes 1 and 2, followed by one new episode each week.
The series follows Miss Peregrine Fisher, niece of Phryne, after she inherits her aunt's fortune. Inspired, she sets out to become a sleuth in her own right – often accompanied by the handsome Detective James Steed. The playful series has a very different tone from the original, but still manages to be both puzzling, fun, and fashionable.
Geraldine Hakewill (Wanted) stars as Peregrine, and Joel Jackson (Deadline Gallipolli) stars as Detective Steed.
Wainwright Walks, Series 2 (2007)
Keen walker Julia Bradbury is back for another six-part series in which she completes classic walks in the Lake District. Using Alfred Wainwright's guides, she'll take on some of the country's most popular fell walks. Aerial cameras offer views from above to help complete the picture of what it's like in the midst of the scenery.
Curious about Wainwright's guides? You can check them out HERE.
June 14th Premieres
The Real Manhunter (2021)
If you saw Manhunt with Martin Clunes, you'll definitely want to check out this docu-series on the man behind the series. DCI Colin Sutton is a real-life hero who devoted thirty years of his life to keeping England safe. Though he's best known for the arrest and conviction of Levi Bellfield and Delroy Grant, Sutton left behind an impressive record of closing cases.
Of the 37 homicide cases he and his teams worked, 35 were solved with convictions.
This series allows Sutton to tell us about his career in his own words – talking through the cases, revisiting key locations, and sharing insight about those wonderful breakthrough moments that helped victims get justice.
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1978)
This classic adaptation of Muriel Spark's novel sees Geraldine McEwan (Agatha Christie's Marple) in the iconic role of Jean Brodie. She's an unorthodox teacher who does her best to fill her students with confidence and a love of art. The series is set in 1930s Edinburgh, and even though it's an older miniseries, it's very much worth the watch.
June 21st Premieres

After years of putting the job first, Dan finds his wife wants a divorce – and her new interest is none other than his best friend.
Wainwright Walks, Coast to Coast (2009)
This continuation of Julia Bradbury's Wainwright Walks series follows her from the Pennines to the North York Moors and over to the breathtaking coastal town of Robin Hood's Bay. This particular walk was Wainwright's last big adventure, and it links three national parks between the Irish Sea and the North Sea.
