Monday 5 December, Whitstable Pearl Series 2 Eps 3 - 6 (Complete 1 - 2 Box set + Bonus Features available on 12 Dec)

We return to the stunning Kent coast for the second series of Whitstable Pearl, a gem of a show just waiting to be discovered. Kerry Godliman (After Life, Save Me, Adult Material) is back as the eponymous Pearl, a restaurateur who also runs a detective agency. She's joined once again by Frances Barber (Silk, Mr Holmes) and Howard Charles (The Musketeers, Liar, Shadow and Bone) alongside a stellar returning cast and guest stars.

It's six months on, and Pearl and Mike are just good friends. Mike has found a new vigour for life, and his pursuit of open-air swimming has led him into the arms of a new woman, Kat, a sunny, outgoing, eternal optimist. Pearl also has a new person in her life, Tom, a supply teacher, who's the definition of a 'nice guy.'

This series sees Pearl hired by local ex-soldier Dan Tomlin whose son has disappeared under questionable circumstances; Mike tackling a case involving his neighbour who says he has night terrors, but Mike suspects there's foul play and calls in Pearl to help investigate; and a woman despised by the locals who is planning to sell her mother's beloved local pub to the highest bidder rather than sell it back to the community who hires Pearl to help find the perpetrator of a hate campaign. Cases also include a 70s film icon found at home unconscious, her housekeeper the prime suspect - but has she been framed? Strange things are happening at Pearl's Mum Dolly's home so she calls in her daughter to investigate. And when a bride is murdered at the wedding that Pearl is catering, she must put on her detective hat once again to find out who could have possibly wanted the woman dead...

Renegades arrives on UK digital 30 January 2023 from 101 Films

The Renegades are on the rampage in a brand-new all-action revenge thriller, featuring a stellar line-up of British and Hollywood favourites. This highly anticipated feature from Shogun Films will be released in the UK by 101 Films on 30 January 2023, with a UK premiere to be announced soon.

Lee Majors plays Carver, a courageous former green beret and true gentleman, who stands by soldiers old and new and helps them in their hour of need. When struggling veteran Nick Moran (Lock Stock) comes to him for support, he does his best to help. Introducing him to his loyal old special forces comrades Peck (Ian Ogilvy), Woody (Billy Murray) and Harris (Paul Barber), they welcome the new-recruit with open arms, living by their ethos of 'You don't leave a man behind even when the war is over and done with...'.

When Carver is shockingly murdered, the ex-army Renegades band together to protect his daughter Judy (Patsy Kensit) and exact revenge on those responsible... a vicious international drug gang, led by the fearsome Goram (Louis Mandylor). They're ready to dispense their own brand of old-school justice on the mean streets of London.

Aided by the enigmatic Sanchez (Danny Trejo), the veterans must stay one step ahead of determined Scotland Yard Detective Moore (Sothcott) and stop Goram's gang from taking their deadly hold on the city.

The Renegades mean business. Cross them, and they'll do anything it takes wreak vengeance with their inimitable old-school style.

There will be blood, violence and bodies galore in this brutally brilliant action-packed feature.
