What time, TMINE? Including My Life is Murder and Watchmen


Every Friday, TMINE lets you know when the latest TV shows from around the world will air in the UK

Another quiet week on the acquisitions front, probably because everyone’s saving their pennies for the new crop of US shows about to hit the airwaves. But we do have a couple of new premiere dates.

Premiere dates

My Life Is Murder
Lucy Lawless in Ten (Australia)’s My Life is Murder

My Life is Murder (Australia: Ten; UK: Alibi)

Premiere date: Tuesday September 24, 9pm

Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess, Spartacus, Battlestar Galactica) is a former cop turned private investigator who’s just so good, all her former colleagues keep turning to her for help. All she wants to do, though, is get her German coffee machine mixed.

TMINE episode reviews

Watchmen (US: HBO; UK: Sky Atlantic)

Premiere date: Monday October 21

Sequel to Alan Moore’s famous graphic novel about vigilante superheroes set decades after the original story. That’s about all I can tell you, though, since details on it are scant and it’s an original story – plus it won’t air in the US until Sunday October 20. But at the very least Dr Manhattan is thinking about coming back from Mars.
