DVD Diva: British Television Series

British TV Series
Very popular at the library right now are British television productions. Here is a sampling you can choose from:

The First Churchills
Tells the story of the 50-year marriage of John and Sarah Churchill, the first Churchills to make their mark on British history.

Monarch of the Glen
Based on the Highland novels of Compton MacKenzie, this series explores the comings and goings of the Lairds at the decaying family estate, Glenbogle, in Scotland.

The Complete Jeeves & Wooster
Stars Hugh Laurie as Bertie Wooster, the classic young British man of means, blessed with a touch too generous a heart and a slight deficit in the noggin department. Steven Fry is Jeeves, his hilariously arch and resourceful valet, a “Gentleman’s Gentleman.”

Prime Suspect
Helen Mirren stars as Detective Chief Inspector Tennison, and the first woman to hold the position.

Touching Evil
A contemporary, darkly-edged mini-series that follows the exploits of the Organized and Serial Crime Unit.

Agatha Christie’s Poirot
David Suchet plays the role of Hercule Poirot, who always solves crimes by using his little grey cells.

Second Sight
Stars Clive Owen as a hotshot police detective who lives for the thrill of the chase, while desperate to conceal a terrifying secret: he’s losing his vision.

The Inspector Lynley Mysteries
No detective is better suited to expose the secrets of the upper classes than Lynley, himself the eighth Earl of Asherton. And while his partner, Havers, may not know her earl from her escargot, she knows how to dig for clues in places a bit too seedy for the well-manicured Lynley.
