All four seasons of British series Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh are now available to stream in Canada on BritBox. Based on the award-winning novels by Henning Mankell, this award-winning series is set in the dramatic and beautiful landscape of southern Sweden. Kurt Wallander (Branagh) is a brilliant detective who takes each murder case he works on personal and will stop at nothing in his search for the truth, even at the expense of his health and family life. Tom Hiddleston also stars in the series which aired from 2008 to 2016.
The 23rd season of Silent Witness premieres on January 7 (the same day as its UK premiere). Emilia Fox’s Nikki Alexander leads a team of forensic pathologists who must work harder than ever to find out the truth behind this season’s mysteries: a body in the concrete pillar of a car park, a downed plane, and scientific research gone wrong.
The ninth season of Vera premieres on January 21 (around the same time the 10th season premieres in the UK). Starring two-time Oscar nominee Brenda Blethyn as Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope, whose offbeat manner and appearance belie a knack for catching killers, but not without the aid of her trusted colleagues.
