Brand new BBC adaptation of Agatha Christie's Witness for the Prosecution set for home entertainment release 9 January 2017

The major new BBC adaptation of Agatha Christie's The Witness For The Prosecution from renowned screenwriter Sarah Phelps (Great Expectations, The Casual Vacancy, And Then There Were None) is set for a home entertainment release in January 2017 courtesy of RLJ Entertainment's Acorn label, following its premiere on BBC One over the festive season.

Featuring a stellar all-star cast including Toby Jones (Detectorists, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Andrea Riseborough (Bloodline, National Treasure), Kim Cattrall (Sensitive Skin, Sex and the City), David Haig (The Thick Of It, Mo), Billy Howle (The Sense of an Ending, Cider with Rosie), and Monica Dolan (Appropriate Adult, The Casual Vacancy) and adapted from Agatha Christie's short story of the same title, the series reunites the team behind last year's critically acclaimed And Then There Were None.

It's 1920s London and the glamorous heiress Emily French (Kim Cattrall) has been found brutally murdered in her handsome townhouse. A young, handsome chancer, Leonard Vole (Billy Howle) is accused of the crime and it seems like an open and shut case. His penniless solicitor, John Mayhew (Toby Jones), clings to the hope that Leonard's wife Romaine (Andrea Riseborough), an enigmatic chorus girl, will provide the alibi to save his life; but she soon proves to be a far from reliable witness.

As Mayhew starts to connect with Leonard, his need to prove the young man's innocence becomes more than a professional obligation. Betrayed by his wife and with the odds stacked against him, all seems lost for Leonard until a piece of evidence surfaces that could change everything.

This dark and thrilling two-part drama arrives on DVD 9 January 2017, alongside the Two By Christie DVD Box Set of The Witness For The Prosecution and And Then There Were None.

Special Features: Extensive Filmed Cast & Crew Interviews - From Page to Screen - Post-War Fashion - Anatomy of a Murder - Filming on the Front

The Young Pope starring Jude Law set to arrive on DVD, Blu-ray and digital 26 December

One of the year's most talked about series The Young Pope featuring Jude Law in one of his finest performances yet, is set for its home entertainment release on 26 December 2016 courtesy of Dazzler Media.

Helmed by Oscar-winning Italian director Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty, This Must Be The Place), The Young Pope has taken the world by storm, with its controversial subject matter, stunning performances, epic sets, dark humour, atmospheric mood and gripping plot.

This outstanding papal series follows the early days of Pope Pius XIII, young American Lenny Belardo (Law - Sherlock Holmes, The Talented Mr Ripley), who has been elected to the highest office in the Catholic church, after a failed plot for power by his mentor. It soon becomes clear that Pope Pius XIII is no ordinary pontiff.

With his outrageous demands and rebellious ways, it's clear that Lenny Belardo won't follow the Vatican's rules. Refusing to bow to their guidance, he employs Sister Mary (Diane Keaton - The Godfather, Annie Hall), the woman who looked after him as an orphan, as his closest advisor and soon the very foundations of the church are threatened.

Also starring James Cromwell (L.A. Confidential, The Green Mile), Silvio Orlando (Il Caimano, Giovanna's Father), Ludivine Sagnier (Swimming Pool, Un Secret), Javier Camara (Talk To Her, Bad Education) and Scott Shepherd (Bridge of Spies, Side Effects), the 10-part series is currently airing on Sky Atlantic and is set to arrive as a four-disc set on both DVD and Blu-ray and on digital on 26 December 2016.

'More than lived up to the hype, the most assured, intriguing, and imaginative debut episode of any drama this year, and possibly since Mad Men'

Daily Mail

'Its power is due to Jude Law's lacerating performance - his young pope is brutally calculating, occasionally almost charming and never less than terrifying'

The Guardian
