Little Boy Blue now being advertised to start showing Monday 11 September on the 7 network. Screened quite recently on ITV in the UK, IMDB rating FWIW 8.1. From the OTA EPG "Based on a true story that shocked a nation, this powerful two-part factual drama centres on the devastating impact on a city of an innocent child's murder amid a wave of gang violence." Looks like the original four part series has been compacted into two episodes.

Chance now being advertised on SBS starting Thursday 30 November at 9.40 pm, as an "Australian Premiere", so presumably is the first of two series (so far). Our lead character is billed as "The Night Manager's Hugh Laurie" as if Gregory House never existed. More information here.

Gem is advertising a new series of Line of Duty. From the promo it looks like a genuine new series not a "network premiere."

The advert I saw was with Lennie James, which means it is series 1. The newest series should have Thandie Newton as the officer under investigation.

Hopefully they will be showing series 4 as series 2 & 3 were exceptionally good.

I must admit that I hadn't noticed who was in the promo, it just sounded like new plot material - I thought I head mention of a "death threat to a Royal" which I didn't remember from earlier series, but I may just be making that up now, I can't really remember. IMDb certainly doesn't mention anything like that for series 4.

Line of Duty isn't showing up on yourtv.com.au yet, so I can't check what's coming up there.

In my opinion nothing came close to series 2 and 3, with 2 being one of the best whodunnits I ever saw on TV. I thought Keeley Hawes was excellent, and history until I watched series 3. Not to say that what followed was not good, just not as good. It is difficult for a TV series, or movie franchise for that matter, to keep up a standard that viewers come to expect.

I agree that series 2 & 3 are some of the best detective / police shows of all time and it's a genre where I thought I'd seen everything. The rapid changes in intensity from never quite knowing where Keeley Hawes sits, who the Caddy is, the intense procedural interview with Daniel Mayes and finishing with "Rapid Exit Required" it really had everything.

SBS is advertising a new season [sic] of Homeland, Friday 16 February 8.30 pm. By my reckoning that's about four days after it premieres in the US.

Not new of course but season 8 (which is new for us) of Blue Bloods is starting next Wednesday 8 February @ 10pm on WIN HD. It's set to be 22 episodes in length. They are currently up to episode 14 in the states. I've always really enjoyed this show.

SBS is now advertising "The Handmaid's Tale starts Thursday 26 April". Presumably the second series, while the first is not yet cold in the ground.

(Later in the ad break they confirm it is the second series.)
