more vera ,gently,dci banks, blue murders, father brown, ms fisher mysteries ,Dr blake PLEASE

Ditto! YES please more Vera, Dr. Blake, Miss Fisher, Father Brown, and Death in Paradise!

Will we soon be seeing more "Death in Paradise"?

Will PBS be broadcasting this British series, based on the Shetland mystery series by Ann Cleeves? If so, when?

...more of the caliber of Vera, Dr. Blake, Ms Fisher & SILK. We need these quality dramas to offset the horrors of today's hateful politics. It's great relief, and a sadness when we become "hooked" and suddenly Vera is gone. Thank you.

When will KCTS be airing Season 7 of Vera?
