Beloved Sicilian detective Inspector Montalbano returns with Collection 10 and the Complete Collection One - Ten Box Set out on DVD & digital 23 November

Our favourite Sicilian detective Inspector Montalbano returns for another enthralling series of intrigue, drama and fine food, set against a stunning sun-drenched backdrop.

From the pen of the late, great Andrea Camilleri, Inspector Montalbano Collection 10 sees two new gripping mysteries, based on some of his final works arrive on DVD and digital on 23 November 2020, following their transmission on BBC Four. The stunning full collection containing 36 feature-length episodes will also be released as Inspector Montalbano Complete Collection One - Ten Box Set.

With all of the thrills of Scandi-noir, but with delicious delicacies, Sicilian culture and the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, this ratings hit stars Luca Zingaretti as the eponymous, much-loved icon of contemporary detective drama. Salvo Montalbano is a sharp, unconventional detective who must fight to succeed within Italy's precarious justice system, alongside his trusted colleagues.

Beloved Salvo, My Livia (Salvo amato, Livia mia)

A gifted young researcher suffers a brutal death in a public records centre, but the leads don't add up: Montalbano discovers a complex personal life but finds no enemies. This case hits particularly close to home, as the victim was a close friend of Montalbano's girlfriend Livia (Sonia Bergamasco). Could their work with immigrant orphans have something to do with her death?

The Safety Net (La rete di protezione)

A Swedish TV period drama production creates a buzz in Vigata, prompting residents to dig out their old home videos. When a local uncovers mysterious old footage in his attic, Montalbano tries to figure out the story behind the videos that are taken on the same day and at the same location over a number of years. Meanwhile, a break-in at a primary school reveals the darker side of social media...could the two cases be linked?

'Gorgeous Sicilian backdrops...Luca Zingaretti remains undimmed as the chilled detective ...lustrous'

Psychological thriller Nuclear starring Emilia Jones and George MacKay arrives on digital 9 November

Grippingly tense, claustrophobic thriller Nuclear, the directorial debut from Cannes Un Certain Regard winning writer Catherine Linstrum (California Dreamin'), is set for its World Premiere at the prestigious Raindance Film Festival this October and is released digitally on 9 November 2020 courtesy of 101 Films.

Two of Britain's greatest young acting talents Emilia Jones and George MacKay star in this haunting psychological drama. Brutalised, traumatised teenager Emma (Emilia Jones - Utopia, Locke and Key) and her mother (Sienna Guillory - Luther, Resident Evil) are on the run from a harrowing past. Seeking refuge in a remote village, she meets a mysterious boy (George MacKay - 1917, True History of the Kelly Gang) who may be more than he appears...

As Emma grows closer to him, fascinated by his obsession with the defunct nuclear power plant that poisons the lake water, she soon realises that in order to overcome her fears she must face them...including the toxic, terrifying past which is determined to catch up with her.

New Zealand police drama One Lane Bridge, daisy Haggard's Back to Life and Sally Hawkins in Fingersmith are some of the highlights coming to Acorn TV UK this October


This Australian drama sees Claudia Karvan (True History of the Kelly Gang, Jack Irish) star as the eponymous Josephine Newton, a local solicitor, who, when her practice is burned down by a disgruntled client, decides to don her wig and barrister's robe once again and resume her briefly glorious career at the Bar. This 'Upstairs, Downstairs' of legal dramas sees Josephine juggling the high-powered barrister's world of Knox Chambers and the haphazard legal tangles of her former solicitor's office.


This thrilling New Zealand noir sees ambitious young Maori detective, Ariki Davis (Dominic Ona-Ariki) who arrives in Queenstown with big dreams investigate the death of local legend Grub Ryder who is found dead at the bottom of the infamous One Lane Bridge. As he becomes embroiled in the major investigation, Ariki inadvertently unlocks a supernatural ability that threatens to endanger the case, his career, and his life.


The hugely talented Daisy Haggard (Breeders) writes and directs this truly original, brilliant comedy drama. After 18 years away, Miri Matteson returns to her childhood home to live with her parents (Geraldine James and Richard Durden) in the coastal town she grew up in, but no longer recognises. As she struggles into this new world of adult life, can she ever escape the shadow of her past?


After the death of their mother, brothers Art (Richard Roxburgh) and Vance Watkins (Tom Long) return to the neglected holiday resort Broken Bay, in the idyllic most eastern-point of Australia, where they grew up. Their hope is to re-open the doors of 'Far Out East' and become a haven for travellers, adventurers and escapees. But when their estranged father Gerry Watkins (Nick Tate) unexpectedly turns up to stake his claim, will their plans be ruined?


Two young women's lives collide in Victorian England...with terrifying consequences. Plucky orphan Sue Trinder (Sally Hawkins), raised in a den of petty thieves or 'fingersmiths', agrees to help a young con man (Rupert Evans), defraud wealthy heiress Maud Lilly (Elaine Cassidy). As Sue gets to know Maud, a strong bond soon begins to form, but as their pasts catch up with them they start to realise their lives are built on lies...who can they really trust?
