Now here’s some news to cheer our winter hearts.
Sky Atlantic has announced the transmission date for series three of Babylon Berlin, the terrific Berlin-based noir.
Based on the bestselling detective novels of Volker Kutscher and arguably the most lavishly-produced non-English language television production ever, Babylon Berlin returns for its third chapter in the Weimer-era drama. And, as ever, Sky will be broadcasting two episodes a week.
It’s the Great Berlin Stock Market crash of 1929. As small-time shareholders and savers storm the stock exchange and the banks to attempt to empty out their accounts, detective Gereon Rath and his protégé Charlotte investigate the on-set death of German film actress Betty Winter. It soon becomes apparent the tragedy was no accident, and there were many shady parties who had invested interests in the film.
