North & South (2004) | New to BritBox | 4 X 60

A powerful adaptation of Elizabeth Gaskell’s feisty and passionate love story starring Richard Armitage (The Hobbit, MI-5) and Daniela Denby-Ashe (Mum, Waterloo Road) set in the changing world of Victorian industrial society. Margaret Hale is one of literature’s most original heroines: a southerner from a country vicarage newly settled in the industrial northern town of Milton. In the shock of her move, she misjudges charismatic cotton mill-owner John Thornton, whose strength of purpose and passion are a match for her own pride and willfulness.

The Body Farm | New to BritBox | 6 X 50

A spin-off from Waking the Dead, this procedural crime series follows a team of forensic scientists who have traded in the world of academia for the brutal world of criminal forensics. Following budget cuts, the team, led by Eve Lockhart (Tara Fitzgerald, Jane Eyre, Game of Thrones) partners up with a London Cold Case unit to perform research into the many ways murder can be committed and concealed. Though Eve has had experience in the field, Rosa (Wunmi Mosaku, Vera, Luther), Mike (Mark Bazeley, The Queen, Broadchurch), and Oggy (Finlay Robertson, How Not to Live Your Life) find themselves unexpectedly thrust into the new world of murder detection.
