My favorite [smile] [smile] show is almost here, again. I'm so excited. I started watching again from the first episode, the first season, and I will hopefully finish just in time to start the first episode of the 10th season right on time. This program makes my heart sing and my soul hopeful that one day we will all be able to accept each other with good grace and dignity despite our differences. I love this show because it goes beyond just a comedic look at murder. It has a message that no matter who you are, or how you live your life, everybody gets the same treatment. No one is above the law and no one is any more important because of the way they live, be it different or not. I love this show. [love] ❤ [kissed] [kiss] [love] . Its message is far greater than I believe the creator intended. And maybe I'm just an Optimist with a dream.

YAY! Great news that the next season begins streaming on 29 April. I LOVE this show and I'm so glad it has been renewed - and I hope they soon start filming season 11!
0 11 Debra  January 23, 2024
I too love this wonderful cozy mystery. Love all the cast , great acting and humor is just the right amount. I’ve even watched episodes over again from beginning. Please keep them coming.
0 4 Jim  January 11, 2024
Love the series and just has an interesting experience. I love shows detailing actual crimes. While watching an episode of a true crime show called "Does Murder Sleep" on the ID channel here in the U.S. the case involved a death at the Elegante Hotel in Beaumont, Texas in 2010. Upon hearing of the autopsy results, I knew what had happened. And of course, it obviously inspired the story line of the episode of the Brokenwood Mysteries titled "Shot of Love", episode 9 in May 2023. The entire true story is at the Vanity Fair website of May 2013 titled The Body in Room 348. To check it out, go to the Vanity Fair website, click on Archive and search for The Body in Room 348.

Waiting patiently for the new season to arrive.

[love] I'm still watching daily, I watch at least two or three of the shows every day, and it's because they are such fun to watch and I learn something new every time. This is without a doubt my all time favorite show. I love that it evolves, and the all of a sudden will bring back an old character. It pitches the problems of the day, bullying, hatred, delinquency difficulties and the violence associated with women's issues and other important events, and it does it with sensitivity and care, It leaves one thinking of more than the one they caught and put in jail; there is also an element of forgiveness, and how paying the price for a mistake can lead to being accepted again. Something we all need to learn how to do. There is something very different about this show, it isn't like any other, and I like it that way. So please, don't change it. And my thanks again to everyone involved in the making of this film. Thank you Thank you Thank you. ❤

FREAKING LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait for the next season. Hubby and I have to make ourselves not watch them all at once. LOL.. drag out the pleasure. Best show I've seen in ages.
0 9 Dave  September 14, 2023
Love this show; please keep ‘em coming. Missy a great new addition, but please also bring back Jared and Kahu! Daniel Chalmers a slow start, but getting more interesting. And I, too, miss Mrs Marlowe. I understand why Elizabeth Macrae wanted to stop, but she’s a big loss…as are Jared & Kahu (did I mention this…?)

I'll watch Brokenwood before watching NCIS any day! Great show. Don't stop.
2 1 Jean  May 29, 2023
This is a question relating to season 5 episode 2, "Bride Not to Be". Who portrayed Captain Cook standing on the bow of the boat and who found the floating body at the beginning of the episode? Appeared to be an uncredited cameo appearance by someone who looks familiar to me but I cannot identify him. Drove me a bit crazy during the original release of that episode and again while watching reruns.
0 4 Frank Baldy  May 20, 2023
Love this show previously drama channel, but i can't get acorn tv.

I am happy, happy, happy that season 10 has been okayed for Brokenwood Mysteries.This show is incredibly complex, funny, satirical, ironic and comedic, a little like the bard himself. And it is constantly raising questions for me The characters are so real, and the actors play them so well, I have to keep watching the stories over and over, they are the best thing on television. Frodo is more Yoda than he thinks...he can be very deep without coming out of the shallows. I love that. Everyone on that show plays a part, technicians, film crew, writers, coffee makers, and everyone else that makes it a great show. So thank you for giving us all another season. Can't wait to see if some of the new old ones come back for more. And kudos for Missy for standing up for her cultural rights, and shame on those who wanted to take them away. Everyone deserves their own humanity and cultural history, so let's try getting their history right more often. [love] [kiss] ❤

Nun of the Above -- ugh...nuns do not wear eye makeup. Makeup (dept) needs a shakeup.
0 1 Rue Hayes BROKENWOOD THE MUSIC  May 20, 2023
Regardless of your views on the makeup, at least you’ve been able to watch season 9. In the UK it looks like being months before we will get the chance 🙄😫
0 3 Molly BROKENWOOD THE MUSIC  July 30, 2023
Reading your comment makes me wonder if you actually watched the episode. If so, you would already know why they were wearing makeup...
5 5 Gila  April 18, 2023
Some of us cannot afford stations like Acorn, & Brit Box but rely on PBS or Ovation to pick the British mysteries like Midsomer Murders, Vera, & all we can do is wait. Some of us are light-years away from Hulu, Paramount+, & the like. But you'd never know it because we are, for the most part, invisible. [sad]
2 4 suzy Gila  May 13, 2023
True and there are those of us on a very, very fixed retirement income that cannot afford all those high-priced monthly streaming networks. Not even a Senior Discount????
2 1 Gila  May 20, 2023
It makes me sad, for I too am on limited income. All I an do is pay for Amazon prime and the extra for Acorn, and do without other things. It's not fair, and perhaps it will change. I hope so, because I hate thinking that people are missing out on great shows just because of money problems. I am very lucky to be in the States where Amazon is available. Without it I'd have no television at all. You have my heart, for what that's worth.
7 3 Charlotte Gila  June 2, 2023
Wow. Sounds like your attention should be on more important matters than boo-hooing about how unfair it is you can't afford a $6.99 a month streaming app. If I was that hard up, surfing the net and pining away for TV shows wouldn't even cross my mind. There are ppl living on the street, homeless, and vets who can't get good medical and mental health treatment and ya'lls big go to for deprivation and unfairness is not being able to get a streaming app. Sounds more like you think you're entitled to free stuff. And a senior discount???? If an app is only $6 or $7 a month, I'm pretty sure a dollar or 2 discount isn't going to be life altering. Go ahead and be offended. But someone needs to call you out for thinking just because something exists you should be able to have it. Be grateful for what you do have. If you're seniors then you know life isn't fair. Grow up.

Many thanks moonbeam but unfortunately I am in the UK. And although I am sure there must be a technical way for me to receive Acorn TV, at my age of 75 the technology is beyond my grasp.
