We start the month with Gracebased on Peter James’s Roy Grace series. John Simm returns as DS Roy Grace in an episode that involves him investigating human remains in a Sussex field. The case won’t only test his abilities, but also test his friendship with DS Glenn Branson.

Not only is there one body, but there is another that seems to be unconnected at first. Eventually, he realizes that it’s all a work of a twisted serial killer, and Grace needs to figure out the truth.

Watch the episode tomorrow, Tuesday, May 4.

While the series was originally on Acorn TV, it’s moved over to BritBox and it’s time to get the exclusive premiere of Line of Duty Season 6. The team is back to face their biggest adversary yet. Their eyes are set on DCI Joanna Davidson, whose unconventional conduct in a high-profile murder investigation raises some suspicions.

The episodes air weekly, with the premiere airing on Tuesday, May 18, 2021. With the weekly episodes, you’re sure to have something to watch during the end of May.
