Messiah logoCritically acclaimed Ken Stott (The Vice, The Singing Detective) stars as Detective Chief Inspector Red Metcalfe, a brilliant detective who once turned in his own brother for murder. Ten years later, Red has earned a reputation for his impressive ability to get into the minds of killers, but two disturbing murders on the same day spark the most baffling and damaging case of his career. Both killings bear the murderer's trademark–as do the grisly deaths that follow–the victim's tongue is cut out and a silver spoon is inserted in their mouth. As the killings mount up, Red is taunted by the fact that he can find no motive, no pattern–nothing to connect the victims apart from the killer's grisly trademark.

Nigella's Christmas Kitchen

Nigella's Christmas Kitchen logoNigella is back in her kitchen at a time when the nights are drawing in and most of us are up for a bit of extended kitchen work. Christmas is after all the last bastion of traditional cooking, it’s a time when we are more than prepared to spend whole days stirring, stuffing and marinating and the reward is a legitimate excuse to have a glass of wine at lunchtime! As always Nigella’s mantra is that cooking should be fun, if it becomes stressful then you’re not doing it right. In addition to the content of this three part series will be an element of travel, to provide some inspiration for the recipes Nigella cooks. A trip to a Salzburg Christmas market is the inspiration for Cinnamon biscuits, Christmas Stollen and a brandy infused Hot Chocolate.
