You will have opportunities to meet more new (for us) characters and series from "across the pond." Fresh from the recent BBC Showcase conference, we picked up several new offerings that will roll out over the next year or so. Details to follow when we have the air dates. Here is a short list of titles you can expect to see:

In the comedy space:

Cold Feet - At times comedic and at other times heartbreaking, the series follows the intertwining lives of three Manchester couples at different stages in their relationships. 

Upstart Crow - Comedy about William Shakespeare as he starts to make a name for himself in London while also trying to be a good husband and father for his family in Stratford-upon-Avon, writing Romeo and Juliet, and his sonnets.

In the mystery and drama space:

Maigret - An adaptation of the books by Georges Simenon featuring his fictional French detective Jules Maigret. 

Vera - Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope is a middle-aged employee of the fictional Northumberland & City Police, who is obsessive about her work and driven by her own demons. She plods along in a constantly dishevelled state, but has a calculating mind and, despite her irascible personality, she cares deeply about her work and comrades.
