The Brokenwood Mysteries Series One and Two - Preview

The Brokenwood Mysteries

Preview by Jack Foley

SEEMINGLY sleepy farming town Brokenwood appears idyllic, but look closer and its murder rate is going through the barn roof. Hit New Zealand crime drama The Brokenwood Mysteries Series One and Two arrives on DVD for the first time in the UK following its run on UKTV Drama, courtesy of Acorn Media International.

The mystifying murder of a local farmer brings in the services of maverick Detective Inspector Mike Shepherd who arrives from the big smoke. With a reputation for solving the most difficult of crimes, his unconventional methods (and passion for country music) leave his by-the-book new colleague Detective Kristin Sims aghast.

But with inexplicable wine festival drownings and puzzling stag-do shootings to solve, and territorial fishermen and tree-huggers to contend with, this unlikely duo need to put their differences aside for the sake of the community.

Featuring a soulful country music soundtrack to match its rural setting, each series features four gripping stand-alone stories.

The Brokenwood Mysteries Series One and The Brokenwood Mysteries Series Two are set for individual release on DVD as two-disc box sets on August 14, 2017.
