She pulls out all the stops in her portrayal of CIA operative Robyn McCall who must acclimatise to civilian life as she tackles a case close to her heart.

Her job is to determine the cause of death whenever bodies are discovered in suspicious circumstances.

Sensational British crime awaits in the period drama, Miss Scarlet and the Duke, on BBC Brit (DStv channel 120). When Eliza Scarlett's father dies suddenly, she's faced with a stark choice.

TLNovelas (DStv channel 133) is adding more spice to its line-up with Italian Bride. A young woman, Fiorella, dreams of a better future and makes plans every day to achieve her goal. She wants to have not only a comfortable room but also a family where she can rediscover love.

Returning for a remarkable 14th season, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia on M-Net (DStv channel 101) tells the story of two brothers who own and operate a dive bar in South Philadelphia, their sister and her feisty roommate who pulls the strings behind the bar, and their elderly father who refuses to move out of the upstairs apartment – a place that’s become an epicentre for debauchery over the years.
