Watch Fridays at 9pm on WOSU Plus.

To Burn in Every Drop of Blood | Friday, April 28 at 9pm on WOSU Plus
When the victim of a frenzied attack is found in woodland, initially the team wonder if it’s random or related to the location – a shrine to a local girl who recently committed suicide there. After the victim is identified and Banks uncovers a link to local crime boss Steve Richards, Banks formulates a theory of his own: he’s convinced the hitherto untouchable Richards had a part in the murder. Watch preview.

A Little Bit of Heart | Friday, May 5 at 9pm on WOSU Plus
What starts out as a missing person’s case soon escalates into a kidnap and ransom – but when the perpetrators cleverly stay one step ahead of the police it soon becomes clear that they are far from average criminals. The case is further complicated by the fact the victim, a wealthy businessman, came to Leeds after fleeing persecution from his birth country of China. Watch preview.

Undertow | Friday, May 12 at 9pm on WOSU Plus
Banks and the team have a painful job to find out how a recent tragedy occurred. Following dogged police work, they locate and close in on a suspect – only to be thwarted when it’s discovered there’s no way they are to blame. While recently appointed Chief Superintendent Anderson puts pressure on Helen to reign in Banks and close the case, Banks becomes increasingly certain that this is all down to one man – crime boss Steve Richards. Watch preview.

    At least you guys are treating him with respect. The rest of PBS is disgusting.

      You are obviously not watching the same PBS as I am. Every series is fantastic and most well done!

    Miss Fisher’s mysteries are the most well written and beautifully costumed show on television any country, any genre. I am from New Mexico, (not New and Not Mexico,). I watch this show with my grand daughters and we all love Miss Fisher. To end it at season 3 is totally unreasonable. Let’s get the gang back together and protest, write, blog, twitter or what ever to make them do more. I am a month from being 70, so I will write real letters. Jo White, USA.

      I agree.

      Are you the Jo White who put the Mooney family history on the Everything Cherokee website?

    Fishers mysteries, season 3 is over. Bummer. I am waiting for season 4. While I am waiting, how about a repeat of 1, 2, & 3. Doc. Martin, as Time Goes by, and Keeping up Appearance, do it. I would love to watch the repeats.
