New to Acorn TV in December

Acorn TV has extended its 30-day free trial until the end of the year, which should give you enough time to check out some of its December highlights.

Launched during the COVID-19 lockdown, the offer can be unlocked at with the code ACORNTVNZ30.

This month Acorn TV added more than 200 hours of content, with an emphasis on classic whodunits that will continue next month with the first three seasons of Kavanagh QC, the first two seasons of Blue Murder, and further seasons of Endeavour, Prime Suspect, Inspector Morse, Lewis, Shetland, Heartbeat and Vera.

New to the mix — and NZ screens — will be the Miriam Margoyles comedy, Bucket, about a terminally-ill 70-year-old ticking off her bucket list.

Said Chortle: “It would be easy to see Bucket almost as a companion piece to its BBC Four stablemate, Detectorists.

“For while Mackenzie Crook’s show is a realistic comedy about the minutiae of male relationships, Frog Stone’s is a realistic comedy about the minutiae of female ones.

“Down-to-earth doesn’t mean underplayed, however, when it comes to the dominating character of Mim – a peach of a role that Margolyes seems to have been born for … even if she had to wait 75 years to get it.”

There will be another chance to see Helen Mirren in Elizabeth I, and the mini-series Undeniable and Secret State.

Exclusive to Acorn will be the NZ premiere of A Music Lover’s Guide to Murdoch Mysteries, in which the Toronto Symphony Orchestra performs music from the show.
