Question: When are there going to be more episodes of PBS' Mystery! series? Please be specific. Thank you.
Answer: I'll be as specific as PBS allows. What follows are the national airdates; I can't guarantee these shows will air on these dates in your particular market. But here goes: Mystery! returns April 30 with a new series of two two-hour mysteries, titled Jericho, starring Robert Lindsay as a Scotland Yard inspector in the 1950s. June and July will be filled with Miss Marple mysteries starring Geraldine McEwan. Titles include Sleeping Murder, By the Pricking of My Thumbs (which also features Agatha Christie sleuths Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, played by Anthony Andrews and Greta Scacchi), The Moving Finger and The Sittaford Mystery. On July 30 there's a two-hour movie titled Inspector Lewis (a follow-up to the classic Inspector Morse mysteries, featuring the late Morse's surviving crime-solving partner, played by Kevin Whately). And in September, there will be four new Inspector Lynley Mysteries, all originals, not based on preexisting Elizabeth George novels, at least not from the titles. Apparently no word yet on a pickup of new Foyle's War episodes.
