Fictional series and thrillers are scarce during the holiday silly season. But broadcasters have plenty in production and are hoarding shows for September and on through autumn.


There are some hugely popular shows coming back, and a few intriguing new crime dramas on the way. Here's a rundown from my blog…

Lee Child and Dennis Lehane – crowd pleasers at Theakston Crime Writing Festival 2011

Lee Child was undoubtedly the star of this weekend's Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival. Not only did he win Crime Novel of the Year for 61 Hours, but half of Yorkshire seemed to be packed into the assembly rooms at the Old Swan Hotel (where Agatha Christie hid out) to hear his Room 101 routine with journalist Christina Patterson.

His… Continue

Stolen starring Damian Lewis, BBC1, PREVIEW

Rating ★★★★

BBC1, Sunday, 3 July, 9pm

From CrimeTimePreview

Plot twists, multiple murders, glamorous cops – you get none of these in this serious but emotional drama.

Child trafficking and slavery is the story here, and the writer, Stephen Butchard, clearly wants you to be aware of the crime and its attendant heartache going on all round… Continue

Justified series 2 starring Timothy Olyphant

Rating ★★★★


5USA, Wednesdays, 10pm


It's good to be tipping our Stetsons to deputy US Marshal Raylan Givens again. All the winning ingredients of series one are back in the current season of Justified on 5USA.

Timothy Olyphant is as softly-spoken and laid back as ever, though having to hold off on his notorious trigger finger, having blown away so many drug dealers, mobsters and his dad last time round. He's resolved to…

Thanks for the friendship. As for Spongebob Squarepants, I like him, but must confess Patrick is my favorite. Good luck with your novel. Lynette

Hi Robin,

Thank you for the contact. Spongebob Squarepants is a personal hero too!

Cheers, Mark

Re: going to Royal Festival Hall, and Kubrick's 2001. Went to the RFH once and loved it, tho I was a bit jetlagged, had just arrived. Noticed you like Spongebob Squarepants. Wonder what Kurbrick might have done with that!

Also, don't know if you get Dexter (TV show) in the UK. Incredible show, but you've probably heard about it: serial killer POV, who kills yeah other serial killers.

We're celebrating turkey day (aka Thanksgiving) over here this week.

Do you have a sample of Cheetah anywhere. I put the first chapter of my New Orleans suspense thriller (and my book trailer) on my website.

Still trying to promote my political thriller 1/1:Jihad-Britain, it's an uphill struggle in the UK with so few places prepared to review. So sad when I think of the work that went into this one and the fact that it is so current. Still. I expect I will get over it providing your blog brings you in some returns keep it up.

Awesome blogsite Robin, now I know why you don't find time to review. If I can figure out how I would like to check it out everytime you update. Best of luck with it and I hope it does you a lot of favours.

Hi Robin thanks for the 'friending'.

Thanks for the friend invite, Robin. Your thriller sounds like an interesting and exciting read. If you like police procedurals, check out John Santana, my Colombian born homicide detective in White Tombs and The Black Minute. The third book in the series, Bad Weeds Never Die, will be released next year.

Oops, didn't notice you liked Kubrick. I'm a big fan of his also. Love how he uses music to accompany certain scenes ... raping to Rossini in Clockwork Orange, and the wonderful Shostakovitch waltz in Eyes Wide Shut when Nicole K is dancing with the seductive Count.

Hi Robin, happy to make your acquaintance. Yeah, I love that Reacher guy. Hope you'll check out MY guy, New Orleans PD homicide detective Frank Renzi, in my suspense thriller ABSOLUTION.

Incidentally, tho I haven't been there for a while, I've been to London a few times and enjoyed it a lot. Great art museums and concert halls.

Thanks for the invite, Robin. Looks like you're doing some very interesting things. Well done!
