Penned by novelist Alex Shearer, Law and Disorder stars comedy icon Penelope Keith as a high-flying, no-nonsense barrister who rarely loses a case and certainly doesn't suffer fools gladly. Featuring guest appearances by Tony Robinson, Philip Glenister and Tony Selby, among others, this hilarious, cleverly scripted sitcom is produced by John Howard Davies, whose impeccable comedy credits include Steptoe and Son, Fawlty Towers and Mr Bean. Philippa Troy's clients range from an irate football fan now sporting the wrong tattoo to a shipwrecked yachtsman accused of eating his companion. Her principal court adversary is Bible-thumping bigot Gerald Triggs, and her instructing solicitor is Arthur Bryant - a keen hypochondriac who regularly regales her with details of his latest ailment. Of course, there is another side to the widowed Philippa: in her free time she likes nothing better than to drive around the countryside in her open-top sports car, and even finds time to pen a series of children's books featuring a mountain-biking hedgehog called Prickly Peter...

Buyer beware.... Looking for a tattoo - and maybe a little something extra: a burst of good luck, a dollop of true love, or even a hex on an ex? Head to the quiet and mysterious Gage, the best skin artist in town. Using unique potions - a blend of extraordinary ingredients and special inks - to etch the right symbol, he can fulfill any heart's desire. But in a place like Low Town, where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires happily walk among humanity, everything has its price. No one knows that better than Gage. Turning his back on his own kind, he left the magical Ivory Tower where cruel witches and warlocks rule, a decision that cost him the right to practice magic. And if he disobeys, his punishment - execution - will be swift. Though he's tried to fly under the radar, Gage can't hide from powerful warlocks who want him dead - or the secrets of his own past. But with the help of his friends, Trixie, a gorgeous elf who hides her true identity, and a hulking troll named Bronx, Gage might just make it through this enchanted world alive. 1.

Already an international hit, a sly, sizzling mystery set in the Italian Alps, the first in a sensational crime series. The dark flanks of the Alps tower over everything. Wind whistles through the fir trees. An expanse of ice and snow with no end in sight. A growing stain. A mess of flesh and blood. A corpse buried six inches under the snow. Enter Rocco Schiavone, Deputy Police Chief and a man who has more beautiful women in his bed than sensible shoes under it. He's stuck in this backwards Alpine town after getting on the wrong side of the wrong people and longs for the fritto misto, cobbled streets, and lucky breaks of his beloved Rome. He hates this place and the provincial locals almost as much as his superiors for their petty rules and for exiling him here. On top of that, he's got a body to deal with and this mangled corpse is "a pain in the ass, number 10 on the scale, summa cum laude".... There is blood on the black run and nothing to identify the victim but a tattoo of Luisa Pec, owner of a bar popular with the locals and a pair of blue eyes popular with Rocco. Was it a crime of passion? Or of jealousy? And how are the mafia involved? Rocco Schivone is on the case, the first in a sensational new crime series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Philpott.
