New to Acorn in December

Acorn has exclusive streaming rights to season one of Queens of Mystery from December 1.

The series revolves around three crime writing sisters from Wildmarsh and their niece, who just happens to be the newly promoted Detective Sergeant at the local constabulary.

Queens of Mystery was created by New Tricks and Doc Martin writer Julian Unthank and  features quirky characters, fast-paced dialogue and darkly comic murders.

Heading the cast are Julie Graham (Shetland, The Bletchley Circle), Sioibhan Redmond (Between the Lines), Sarah Woodward (The Politician’s Husband) and Olivia Vinall (The Apple Tree Yard).

The show was Acorn’s third original commission, in the wake of London Kills (which is on TVNZ OnDemand) and Agatha Raisin (which has aired on Prime).

Hollywood Soapbox dubbed it a “fun, colourful and cleverly written murder mystery that employs the talents of many superb actors” and the Los Angeles Times, “a sure-fire crowdpleaser“.

The rest of Acorn’s December premieres date back to:

  • 2007’s Anner House, an Irish emigrants drama (December 2)
  • series 2 of Indian Summers (December 9)
  • series 1-2 of  Wild at Heart (December 16)
  • series 4 of Rebus (December 9)
  • series 2 Christmas special of Victoria (December 23)
  • 1996’s The Fragile Heart, which stars Nigel Hawthorne as a cardiac surgeon in personal and professional crisis (December 30)
  • Relative Strangers, which stars Brenda Fricker as a widow who learns her late husband was an indebted bigamist (December 30).
