After Helen Anderson (Rachael Shenton, Hollyoaks) jilted her intended, Hugh Helton (Matthew Lewis, Harry Potter), at the altar, she, and James can finally address their feelings for each other. But it can be tricky in such a close-knit community where not everyone takes too kindly to Helen's decision. Prompted by James' and Helen's affections, Siegfried, Tristan (Callum Woodhouse, The Durrells) and Mrs. Hall (Anna Madeley, Deadwater Fell) also reflect on their places in the world.

Decrypted

You won't be able to keep this a secret... The all-star, outrageously dark, comedy feature DECRYPTED is getting its world premiere on 1 November 2021 courtesy of Bright Spark Productions.

Get ready to go underground and delve deep into the world of cryptocurrency and unscrupulous government agencies in this provocative film from father and son writing/directing duo Mick Sands and Tom Sands and producer Phil Harris, the team that that brought us Rupert, Rupert & Rupert and The Holly Kane Experiment.

When an extremely mismatched team of National Security Agency operatives take on a covert mission to kidnap the creator of Bitcoin - Satoshi Nakamoto - to extract, by any means necessary, the information they need to destroy cryptocurrencies, things go wildly wayward in this raucous romp.

The botched NSA interrogation forces together a homophobic field agent, a feminist technical adviser, a transgender asylum seeker, a crypto-anarchist, a racist Brexiteer and an inclusionist MI5 agent. Of course sparks start to fly when their opposing beliefs clash in major way. But a truth drug reveals a newfound honesty with riotous consequences...

Decode the devilishly debauched Decrypted, it will crack you up

Britannia

THROAT SLASHING, drugged-up-druids and plenty of romping - Britannia returns to rule TV. Capricious Celts and ruthless Romans march back onto our screens for a third series bringing with them oodles of gore, game and gusto.

Olivier award-winning playwright Jez Butterworth continues to merge fantasy and fact in his hallucinogenic historical series. Recently returning to Sky Atlantic, Britannia Series III comes to DVD from Acorn Media International on 15 November 2021, alongside a Series I - III Box Set.  

The fightback against the Roman Empire, which stands at its mightiest, is on the horizon. Aulus (David Morrissey - The Missing) is joined by his wife Hemple (Sophie Okonedo - His Dark Materials) who arrives to oversee his conquest of the Britons, bringing with her mysterious and dark forces. Cait Cait (Eleanor Worthington-Cox - Gwen) continues her journey to becoming the prophesied "chosen one" and Mackenzie Crook's 10,000-year-old Druid leader Veran is set to head down into the underworld for a glimpse of the future. As competing factions feud, whose prophecy will be fulfilled, and who edges closer to ruling Britannia?   

The original series kicks off in 43AD, as Roman General Aulus Plautius, arrives in Britannia, determined to conquer what Julius Caesar lost to the dastardly Druids 90 years earlier. He leverages rivalries between Celtic tribes: the Regni led by Queen Antedia (Zoe Wanamaker - Harry Potter), and the Cantii led by elderly King Pellenor (Ian McDiarmid - Star Wars). There are greater forces at work as Cantii royal siblings Phelan (Julian Rhind-Tutt - Harlots) and Kerra (Kelly Reilly - True Detective) vie over their right to the throne. High Druid Veran (Mackenzie Crook - Detectorists) summons spirits with gruesome rituals to achieve his own ends, while chosen one Cait seeks to fulfil her own prophecy with the help of demon-possessed madman Divis (Nikolaj Lie Kaas - The Killing).     

The second series follows two years later, as the feud between Romans and Celts deepens, rebellions are stirred amongst the Celtic tribes, and an epic battle between the two Druid brothers puts everyone at risk...

Bring on the battle Britannia style, there will be blood... lots of it.
