What time, TMINE? Including Seven Types of Ambiguity, The Heights, Dead Still and Roswell: New Mexico

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

It’s been a couple of weeks since the previous What time, TMINE? and the likes of Walter have been busy. That means we’ve got a whole bunch of new acquisitions and airdates.

After the jump, you can find out when and where you can watch The Heights, Dead Still and Roswell: New Mexico. But first, all the new shows that don’t yet have premiere dates, as well as one show that is now available but I didn’t know it had been acquired – until now


  • Walter Presents has picked up Start (Russia)’s Gold Diggers/Russian Affairs
  • …VRT (Belgium)’s De Twaalf (The Twelve) and RTL4/Videoland/VTM (The Netherlands)’s Amsterdam Vice
  • …and 13th Street Channel (France)’s Trauma
  • Sundance Now has acquired Elisa Viihde (Finland)’s Shadow Lines

Oops, I missed it

Seven Types of Ambiguity

Seven Types of Ambiguity (Australia: ABC; UK: My5)

Seven Types of Ambiguity is a really interesting exploration of similar territory to Rashomon, but set in modern day Australia. Based on the Elliot Perlman novel of the same name, it sees a young boy abducted from school, only for him to be found relatively quickly by the police. Oddly, he’s unharmed and turns out to have been taken by the ex-boyfriend (Xavier Samuel) of the boy’s mother (Janet King‘s Leeanna Walsman); in turn, his potential accomplice turns out to have a connection to the boy’s father (The Slap/Secret City‘s Alex Dimitriades). Why did Samuel abduct the child? Was Walsman secretly having an affair with Samuel? Was Samuel stalking her for revenge? Or was there some other motivation altogether?

Over the course of the season of six episodes, the series follows the action from the points of view of various characters, each episode focusing on a different one. It starts with Dimitriades, then follows Samuel’s psychiatrist (The Matrix/Lord of the Rings/V for Vendetta‘s Hugo Weaving), Samuel’s neighbour (Crownies/Janet King‘s Andrea Demetriades), Dimitriades’s best friend (The Slap/Secrets and Lies‘s Anthony Hayes), Samuel’s lawyer (East West 101‘s Susie Porter) and ultimately Walsman, where all is finally revealed. But each episode is still really about one or more specific relationships and their ambiguities.

What time, TMINE? Including Treadstone and Stockholm Requiem

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

So here’s a developing trend – shows being acquired before they’ve even been made, of which we’ve had quite a few this week. The drawback of these is that you can’t tell when they’re going to air because they’ve not aired in their native countries yet. And, of course, you can’t read my reviews of them to see if they’re worth bothering with.

Still, it is what it is. But we do at least have a couple of shows with actual premiere dates, you’ll be glad to hear.

TV3 (Norway)’s Wisting


  • The BBC has picked up Viaplay/TV2/SVT (Scandinavia)’s Utredningen (The Investigation). That’s still being made
  • Walter Presents has acquired Één (Belgium)’s De Twaalf (The Twelve). No airdate yet, because it’s Walter
  • Amazon’s got hold of the latest spin-off from AMC (US)’s The Walking Dead. That’s so new, it doesn’t even have a title yet, so the best guess is “some time in 2020”
  • This very day, BBC Four has acquired TV3 (Norway)’s Wisting. That’ll air some time this year.

After the jump, though, details and premiere dates for Jason Bourne spin-off Treadstone and Scandi Noir Sthlm Rekviem (Stockholm Requiem).
