Every Friday, TMINE lets you know the latest announcements about when new imported TV shows will finally be arriving on UK screens – assuming anyone’s bought anything, of course
One new acquisition, one new airdate this week. First, remember all those shows I said last week that were coming to Walter Presents by year end? They’ve turned up today. For full details of all the shows, last week’s entry has it all but here they are on 4oD:
- Le vol de cigognes (Flight of the Storks) (France: TF1)
- Hořící keř (Burning Bush) (Czech Republic: HBO Europe)
- De prooi (The Prey) (The Netherlands: VARA)
- De Zaak Menten (The Body Collector) (The Netherlands: Omroep Max)
- Der kalte Himmel (Frozen Sky) (Germany: WDR Fernsehen)
Also just turned up is Veszettek (Home Guards) (Hungary: Megafilm), which is about two brothers recruited by a local vigilante group who end up discovering it’s a bit hard to tell goodies from baddies in real-life.
Acquisition of the week is AXN’s Stana Katic drama Absentia, of which I reviewed the first three episodes. That’ll be on Amazon some time next year.
Belated airdate of the week is for the second season of Les témoins (Witnesses), which was on Channel 4 for its first season but is now on BBC Four, starting 9pm next Saturday (25th November). I haven’t seen it, but I’ve already covered it a bit and given Audrey Fleurot is in it, I will be watching it. Two hours of that on Saturday, two hours of Babylon Berlin on Sunday – that’s a lot to get through of a weekend…
