With her ex-con husband owing protection money, she's sucked into the dangerous criminal underworld and there's only one person that can her save her... the driver.

★★★★

Empire

'Buckle up for the existential bloodbath... a brilliant piece of nasty business that races on a B-movie track until it switches to the dizzying fuel of undiluted creativity. Damn, it's good. You can get buzzed just from the fumes coming off this wild thing... pure cinema, a grenade of image and sound ready to blow'

Agatha Raisin Series 4 and 1 - 4 Box set receive HE release from Acorn Media International 6 June

Internationally acclaimed actor Ashley Jensen (Ugly Betty, After Life) returns as the titular, adored amateur detective Agatha Raisin, in the hit TV series, that sees the London PR guru turned detective, solve murder mysteries in the sleepy Cotswolds village she calls home, all while sporting a fabulous wardrobe and dangerously sharp wit.

Based on the best-selling novels by the late M.C. Beaton, the fourth series of Agatha Raisin airs on Acorn TV and Sky this May and Agatha Raisin Complete Series Four and One- Four Box Set inc. the Christmas Special: Kissing Christmas Goodbye arrive on DVD and digital 6 June from Acorn Media International.

When glamorous London PR-executive Agatha Raisin retires from the hustle and bustle of the publicity world to live a quiet life in the picturesque Cotswolds, things don't quite go to plan. When she accidentally becomes the prime suspect in a murder investigation, it leads to a brand-new career as an amateur sleuth. Armed with her trademark tenacity and fashion flair, along with help from her loyal assistant Roy (Mathew Horne - Gavin & Stacey) and her trusty roster of friends: ladies; man Sir Charles Fraith (Jason Merrells - Waterloo Road), cleaner Gemma (Katy Wix - The Windsors), nosy neighbour Mrs Boggle (Marcia Warren - Don't Forget the Driver) and paramour James (Jamie Glover - Waterloo Road), Agatha picks up the detective mantle to uncover the perpetrators of a series of heinous crimes and strange murders, lurking in the quaint village of Carsely.

Four series later the Agatha Raisin detective agency continues to thrive, and there's no shortage of mysteries for the savvy sleuth to solve. Resolving not to spend any more time dwelling on her AWOL on-off partner, James (Jamie Glover - Waterloo Road), Agatha and her merry band of helpers have more cases to crack including a jam competition that spirals into a sticky mess when a judge is mysteriously murdered - Wilkes (Jason Barnett - Bridgerton) hires our favourite formidable PI to keep a lid on things.

When James whisks Agatha away on a seaside trip to work on his new book, the last thing she expects is to end up in Snoth-on-Sea and be suspected of murder once again. And in an even more shocking turn of events, she's called in to investigate when her ex-fiance's fiancee is murdered the night before their wedding...

This cracking fourth series promises laughs galore and a corking good time, with our favourite charming detective - the inimitable Agatha Raisin.

Series Four boasts an A-list line up of British talent including: Vincent Regan (300, Troy), Keith Allen (Kingsman the Golden Circle, the Others), Ace Bhatti (Bohemian Rhapsody, Bend it Like Beckham), Sophie Ward (Jane Eyre, Book of Blood), Robbie Gee (Snatch, Underworld), Phil Daniels (Quadrophenia, Chicken Run), and Taz Skylar (Boiling Point, The Kill Team) amongst others.

'A generous helping of comfy, cosy, chocolate-box entertainment... light-hearted and tongue in cheek'

'Campy, kitsch, silly and very fun... perfect wind-down telly'

DI Ray set to receive DVD and digital release from Acorn Media International 4 July

Discover DI Ray, a refreshing and necessary addition to the detective drama genre, that sees the talented and acclaimed Parminder Nagra (13 Reasons Why, ER, Bend It Like Beckham), give an impressive, powerful performance as the titular lead. Created and written by Line of Duty star, and one-to-watch scribe Maya Sondhi (Ackley Bridge, EastEnders) with Jed Mercurio as Exec Producer, this riveting and groundbreaking new series is set to arrive on DVD this June courtesy of Acorn Media International, following its transmission on ITV.

After a heroic arrest brings her to the attention of the decision makers on the force, DI Rachita Ray (Nagra) a British Asian policewoman is promoted to homicide... But her initial excitement on the promotion is quickly quashed by the underlying feeling that she landed the role as a box-ticking exercise, rather than on her merit as a detective.

Assigned to investigate a suspected honour killing of a young Muslim man, she quickly realises the two suspects - brothers from a British Hindu family - aren't guilty. The evidence against them is flimsy at best, but her attempts to convey this to her superiors and colleagues falls on deaf ears.

Hidden biases and a desire to close the case as soon as possible, means no one is listening... that is, until she discovers a much more sinister crime. As Ray uncovers a complex web of deceit within organised crime, she also lays bare deep-seated issues about her own identity - that she has buried for many years - wounds born out of a desperate desire to belong after a lifetime of being made to feel like an outsider.

This Birmingham set crime-drama, features a stellar cast including Gemma Whelan (White House Farm, Gentleman Jack, Game of Thrones) and Jamie Bamber (Marcella, The Smoke, Law & Order UK), the four-part series is directed by Bridgerton's Alex Pillai and produced by Code 404's Charlotte Surtees, and arrives on DVD and digital 4 July 2022.

'Thrilling... fresh, relevant, thought-provoking'

Daily Mirror

'What Sondhi is doing to modernise the much-loved but often stuck-in-the-past British police drama is fascinating'

But deep in the dark woods lurks an unknown evil.

Strange and unsettling things start to occur, animals turn malevolent, crops start to fail.

'Robert Eggers' stunning debut feature is one of the scariest horror movies in years - and not the creep-up-and-prod-you kind of scary either, but a profound, unsettling dread that gnaws at your bones, and which comes back to find you in the dark'

The Telegraph

'Rarely has a film this oppressive been so impressive'
