The moving multi-award-winning drama, inspired by the memoirs of Jennifer Worth, returns for a ninth series. Beginning in January 1965 with the funeral of Winston Churchill, Series 9 sees Nonnatus House entering a bold and innovative era.
But for the midwives, the very fabric of their lives is jeopardised when Nonnatus itself comes under the startling threat of demolition. As well as tackling sensitive social issues, expect to see more twists and turns in the personal lives of our Nonnatus House favourites, from Valerie coming to terms with her grandmother's imprisonment to Lucille finding romance with Cyril.
Alongside the joy and optimism of birth, the nurses must cope with cases including diphtheria and cancer, as the emotional drama returns to our screens.
The charming Father Brown returns for another gripping series to solve more mysteries in the sleepy Cotswold village of Kembleford.
In this series, based on the character created by GK Chesterton, the charismatic priest investigates the murder of an eccentric beekeeper, uncovers the hidden motivations behind a deadly art exhibition and steps in when Mrs McCarthy's family reunion is threatened by a fortune-teller's predictions.
And when Bunty is tried for the murder of a young aristocrat, it's a race against time for Father Brown to prove her innocence and save her from the hangman's noose.
Full of humour and compassion, but with a big dramatic twist each time, this series remains true to the period charm of the original character and setting while bringing a sharp contemporary edge to the storytelling.
Dr Nikki Alexander (Emilia Fox) returns with her team of dedicated forensic pathologists and scientists, as they try to figure out how and why the victims died in this award-winning crime drama.
A body in the concrete pillar of a car park. A downed plane. Scientific research gone wrong.
The cases that end up at the Lyell Centre are rarely straightforward. Initial suspicions are challenged as the evidence mounts, and Nikki and the team must work harder than ever to find the truth.
