Starting August 9th, on Saturday nights we’re escaping the heat with a trip to the Southern Hemisphere with new seasons of hit shows!
Starting at 7pm, 800 Words Season 2 begins!
Recently widowed Sydney newspaper columnist George Turner sets out to make a fresh start with his teenage children by moving to the tiny New Zealand town where he vacationed as a child. Though they’ve become more accepted by the locals, in Season 2 there are still plenty of problems for George to face, including finding a real job and, potentially, new love.
At 8pm we jump back to England to the seaside village of Portwinn for Season 8 of Doc Martin.
Dr. Martin Ellingham and his wife, Louisa, are finally living together again with their son, James Henry, but their problems are far from over. With Louisa's encouragement, James Henry has grown attached to Buddy the dog, but Martin is disgusted by the four-legged friend. In need of a new nanny, Louisa finds herself juggling too many responsibilities and considers switching careers, causing a rift with Martin. Meanwhile, Portwenn is abuzz as the residents prepare for a wedding. The Larges hope to profit from the festivities, but when Martin's Aunt Ruth considers selling the family farm, her decision causes trouble for their business endeavors. As some relationships bloom and others falter, can Martin cope with all the changes — or will he risk the fragile accord he's forged with his family?
And at 9pm we return to below the border to go to Australia with Season 4 of Doctor Blake Mysteries.
The season kicks off with Blake returning home to find Ballarat hosting a very public stopover in a round-Australia motor race – and very suspicious death.
