Summer 2010 Schedule for Masterpiece Mystery! on PBS

PBS Masterpiece Mystery!

Masterpiece Mystery! returns this Sunday on PBS with a summer schedule of series that promises to tickle the little gray cells most delightfully!

Foyle's War (May 2nd, May 9th, and May 16th)

First up are three episodes in the exceptional series Foyle's War. It is June 1945, and VE Day has been celebrated in Britain but the state of the country is far from jubilant. DCS Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) faces international conspiracy and execution, military racism and national betrayal. (MBN Note: We've already seen the first episode, "The Russian House", courtesy of Acorn Media, and are pleased to report that it is an excellent addition in this already outstanding series.)

Miss Marple (May 23rd, June 20th, and June 27th; with encore presentations of previously aired episodes on June 6th and June 13th)

Julia McKenzie is back in the role of Agatha Christie's iconic sleuth Miss Marple, pursuing a series of new crimes and dark occurrences. With a gentle smile and a probing mind, she often finds herself at the center of trouble — a witness to betrayals, poisonings and all manner of mayhem. Knitting needles in hand and a cup of tea always at the ready, Marple quietly earns confidence while uncovering secrets and exposing killers.

Hercule Poirot (July 11th, July 18th, and July 25th)

David Suchet reprises his role as suave detective Hercule Poirot in three new episodes. Whether he's on holiday or simply going about his business near his London home, Poirot finds himself exercising his "little grey cells" by helping police investigate crimes and murders ... whether they ask for his help or not.

Inspector Lewis (August 29th, September 5th, September 12th, September 19th, and September 26th; with encore presentations from the previous year airing on August 8th, August 15th, and August 22nd)

Kevin Whately returns for a third season as Inspector Lewis in five new episodes. Once again joined by Laurence Fox as Lewis' young partner DS Hathaway, the detectives continue solving cases in the seemingly perfect academic haven of Oxford.
