Tuesday Night line-up

Dr. Blake Mysteries

Tuesdays at 8pm. Last Episode of Season 5 airs May 29
Many years have passed since Dr. Blake first returned home from war to run his father’s old practice. But Ballarat (in Australia) is no longer the sanctuary from the outside world it used to be. There’s a new chief superintendent who doesn’t approve of Blake’s unorthodox methods, and despite the pathologist solving the crimes which have confounded the police, he is determined to get rid of Blake for good. Even dependable Jean, his housekeeper and assistant, is thinking of leaving town as her own past comes back to haunt her. Amid the upheaval the mysteries continue and Lucien Blake will face his most personal challenge yet as he tries solving his own mother’s mysterious death.

Father Brown

Tuesdays at 9pm, Season 6

Father Brown airs Saturdays at 5pm on WLIW21.

Based on the short stories by G.K. Chesterton, Father Brown follows the kindly cleric as he solves crimes in his community. It is a quintessentially English world: drawing rooms in large country houses, miles of countryside, village halls and secret gardens, as well as country fairs, railway stations and rural parish churches. Each episode sees the enigmatic priest investigate a crime in his own particular way, using intuition and psychology. Father Brown discovers the truth of a crime by looking into the truth of the soul – the passions, dark secrets, hidden desires. Many years spent hearing his parishioners’ confessions have given him an uncanny insight into the origins of evil and the workings of the criminal mind. But the stories are not concerned with judgement – Father Brown is more interested in saving souls than in bringing the guilty to justice.

EastEnders

Tuesdays at 10pm
