A Killer Hurricane


8pm Tuesday DEATH IN PARADISE Crime drama - THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN - DI Goodman and the team spend the night locked in a house with a murderer.

Humphrey and his colleagues are called to a neighboring private island whose property developer owner has been shot dead at a family gathering. Five people are in the frame - the victim's housekeeper, his PA and his three children - although when an approaching hurricane strands the cops on the island, knocking out the phones and computers, they are forced to rely on good old-fashioned investigative techniques. As evening approaches, the cops realize they will be spending the night in a house with a killer. 

FROM THE BEGINNING - See the premier episode of FRANKIE DRAKE MYSTERIES  - Set in 1920s Toronto, the all female Drake Private Detectives crack the cases the police don’t dare go near. 


Frankie Drake Mysteries

9pm FRANKIE DRAKE MYSTERIES - Crime Drama - Set in 1920s Toronto, the series follows the adventures of Frankie Drake (Lauren Lee Smith) and her partner Trudy Clarke (Chantel Riley) at Drake Private Detectives, the city’s only all-female detective agency, as they find themselves fighting crime in the age of flyboys, gangsters, rum-runners, and speakeasies.

Incorporating a brand of justice that doesn't always follow the law, Frankie and Trudy investigate mysteries and crimes that either the police refuse to take on, or that their clients cannot take to the police at all. Against a backdrop of social change, radical politics and jazz music, the series is immersed in both the real Toronto of the 1920s and the world of mystery and suspense.  


In the series premiere MOTHER OF PEARL  Frankie is named a suspect in a jewel heist.  As she diligently  works to clear her name, she ends up partnering with a surprising ally.
