We all know how unpredictable British summertime can be, and as we prepare for summer showers and days indoors, Acorn has some delightful June box sets to keep you entertained.

This month heralds the return of sleuthing sensation My Life Is Murder, starring the inimitable Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess, Parks and Recreation) who’s back on streaming service Acorn TV for a fourth instalment of this must-see fan-favourite crime drama.

But that’s not all; Acorn Media International have a host of fabulous female detective dramas waiting to be discovered on DVD and digital, come rain or shine. If you’re looking for some sofa sleuthing this summer, these magnificent mystery mavens – from a retired professor to an antique dealer – have you covered, whatever the weather.
