While you’re hunkering down, make the most of your holiday with a free thirty day trial on Acorn TV! They offer some great British and Australian programming, especially mysteries. One of their best mystery offerings became available today, Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears, the latest movie-length mystery(one of my favorites!), starring Essie Davis as Miss Fisher. Acorn also has the TV series Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Ms. Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries, the tale of her long lost niece. More mysteries await with Loch Ness, Agatha Raisin, the Mrs. Bradley Mysteries, starring Diana Rigg(!). And, if you don’t like mysteries(?), Acorn has Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal, starring Richard Coyle, David Suchet(!) and Claire Foy(!). Acorn TV also has Slings & Arrows, the hit Canadian TV series about a Shakespeare company. they even offer great documentaries(especially history), like The Dark Ages: An Age of Light from Art Historian Waldemar Januczczak; She Wolves: England’s Early Queens, about seven English queens, defying England’s sexism by ruling the realm, and Caligula With Mary Beard, a study of the infamous emperor from the best(and funniest) Roman historian around. And, finally, they have nine seasons of Doc Martin, and two movie length episodes, if you can’t get enough of that. There is a wealth of good British entertainment here, but I bet, if we apply ourselves, we could watch it all in 30 days. If not, the service only costs $4.99 a month, a dollar below Hulu’s low cost. So don’t wait, sign up here. And enjoy!
