New British TV Shows on Acorn TV in March 2022
Acorn TV March 7th Premieres
The Chelsea Detective (2022)
Adrian Scarborough (Gavin & Stacey, Miranda) stars as DI Max Arnold, a newly-separated officer who lives on a battered houseboat while holding out hope that he’ll get back together with his wife. He's clever, determined, and perhaps most importantly, he doesn't care about wealth or status when it comes to getting justice.
Along with his colleague Priya Shamsie (Sonita Henry), he'll investigate deaths in the London borough of Chelsea – a posh and lovely place with a dark underbelly full of greed and corruption and murder.
The first series consists of four episodes:
- The Wages of Sin – After a stonemason dies on the London Underground, Max is led into a situation that seems like a real-life haunting. The lonely, devout victim believed he was haunted by a spirit leaving him biblical messages…but could there be an explanation that doesn't involve the supernatural?
- Mrs. Romano – When the social media sensation and wife of a local restaurateur goes missing, the race is on to find her alive. Unfortunately, her home life is complicated, and Max finds his efforts impeded by the circumstances of a busy restaurant and family politics.
- The Gentle Giant – When a well-liked security guard is found stabbed to death, it seems like a drug deal gone wrong. As Max will soon find, though, nothing about the man's life was as it seemed.
- A Chelsea Education – Shortly before he's due to move to Japan, a teacher from a prestigious international school is found dead in his home. Between feuding colleagues and demanding parents, there's no shortage of possible suspects.
Walking Through History, Season 2
Sir Tony Robinson (Blackadder) takes us on a variety of historic walks through the beautiful British countryside. In Season 2, the walks include Avebury and Stonehenge, the Lake District, and the coasts of Cornwall and North Norfolk.
