We’re thrilled to feature another Acorn TV Original with Agatha Christie’s The Witness for the Prosecution, offering another gripping Christie adaptation from Sarah Phelps and a stellar ensemble led by Toby Jones and Kim Cattrall.

Additionally, since we introduced Murdoch Mysteries to US audiences on home video in 2009 and on Acorn TV in 2011, it has become one of our most popular series, and Season 10 continues with 18 more fun and intriguing mysteries. Plus, Acorn TV’s January slate features the return of one of our most popular new series with Australia’s 800 Words, and the can’t-miss finale of Acorn TV Original The Level.”
