ACORN TV JANUARY 2022 HIGHLIGHTS

QUEENS OF MYSTERY SEASON 2 (Acorn TV Original)
Three 2-Part Mysteries Premiere Mondays Beginning January 10 Through January 24

Queens of Mystery follows the adventures of three crime-writing sisters, Beth (Sarah Woodward, The Pale Horse), Cat (Julie Graham, The Bletchley Circle, Shetland, Penance), and Jane (Siobhan Redmond, Unforgotten) Stone, and their 28-year-old niece, Detective Sergeant Mattie Stone (Florence Hall for S2, The Princess Switch: Switched Again).

Using their knowledge of crime – both real world and fictional – together they solve murders in the picturesque English region of Wildemarsh. But no matter how many cases they are able to crack, the unsolved mystery that haunts all the characters is that of Mattie’s mother’s disappearance 25 years ago.

THE LARKINS (Acorn TV Exclusive)
New Episodes Continue Mondays; Season Finale January 17

This exciting new adaptation of H.E. Bates’ classic novel The Darling Buds of May follows the warm-hearted, wheeler-dealing adventures of the iconic Larkin family in the idyllic Kent countryside. Set in the late 1950s, each episode contains a story of the week concerning their personal family sagas, and the politics of their village life alongside series arc stories.

Starring Bradley Walsh (Law & Order UK), Joanna Scanlan (No Offence) and Sabrina Bartlett (Bridgerton). The first season ends with a Christmas special, where all the talk in the village is about the pantomime and an ongoing slate of burglaries.
