Spiral Series 7 is scheduled to arrive on SBS on Demand Thursday 12 September, according to a newsletter released by SBS on 29 August.

Interestingly, for me at least, BBC had announced "while we wait for the new season of Spiral" they would be showing a reboot of the original Danish series Those Who Kill, titled "Darkness: Those Who Kill", starting this weekend on the BBC 4 Saturday night slot, two episodes a night over the next four weeks. Interesting because I always thought that SBS benefited from the BBC's expert translation of street French. Maybe BBC has already completed this, because the timing suggests that SBS will be offering Spiral 7 in advance of the BBC.

Interesting. I'd thought with the ending of season 6 that they'd wound it up. Good to hear that I was wrong.

According to this https://thekillingtimestv.wordpress.com/tag/spiral-series-7/ there will even be an eighth series.

I don't know about the credibility of the source, but they are accurate enough about the screening of series 7 in France earlier this year and about probably coming to BBC 4.

N.B. Minor spoilers in the links on that page.

Silent No More

Journalist Tracey Spicer will front a 3 part series Silent No More, around the Australian response to #metoo, on the ABC.

Produced by Southern Pictures it includes interviews with women who have spoken out about harassment, plus the social change which has followed. Spicer has been an advocate for change although has also publicly acknowledged issues surrounding defamation have made media organisations nervous and #metoo have hit the ‘pause button' as a result.

Over three episodes, Tracey explores how #MeToo is changing Australia, tackling the confusion and backlash caused by the movement. She speaks to ordinary Australians who bravely share their experiences, looks at how the system must be reformed, and explores how #MeToo can be the catalyst for positive change for everyone, regardless of gender.

Mondays at 8:30pm from 25 November.

Mystify: Michael Hutchence

This is a feature-length theatrical documentary written and directed by Richard Lowenstein, director of many of both INXS and Michael’s hit music videos and the 1986 feature film, Dogs in Space, in which Hutchence played the lead.

Mystify is a journey into the heart and soul of internationally renowned INXS front-man Michael Hutchence, and delivers an intimate narrative portrait, imbued with authenticity, warmth and humour. Michael came to epitomise the very definition of leather-clad sexually magnetic rock front-man, but underneath it all he was a poetic, multifaceted and intensely sensitive man who struggled with the idea of success and the creative limits of pop.

Sunday 24 November at 8.40pm on ABC.

SBS is advertising the miniseries of The Little Drummer Girl (from the book by John Le Carré) starting 6 Feb. IMDb viewer rating 7.4, which is perhaps a bit disappointing.

I wouldn't be surprised if the IMDB rating is more a reflection of viewers' reaction to the main plot line, which (without giving away too much in the way of spoilers, after all the book has been published for some time) revolves around the ruthless exploitation by security services of what is essentially a relatively naive member of the general population. This theme has been repeated time and again recently, involving not only security services but also police forces, to the point where it becomes depressing.

I thought the BBC made a reasonable fist of it. It's not as if the book is in the same class as the mainstream Le Carré's work. Fans of Eric from True Blood will see Alexander Skarsgård feature in one of the main roles.
