About Balthazar

Suave, smart, and somewhat strange, Raphaël Balthazar (Tomer Sisley) can make the dead speak like no one else.

Raphaël Balthazar, a forensic pathologist in Paris, works with no-nonsense chief inspector Hélène Bach to solve the city's most disturbing crimes.

With record ratings in France this winter (7.1 million for the finale alone), BALTHAZAR Series 3 is making its exclusive streaming premiere in the U.S. and Canada on Acorn TV on Monday, February 8. This sexy French-language crime drama (with English subtitles) follows the suave, smart, and somewhat strange Raphaël Balthazar (Tomer Sisley, Messiah, We're the Millers) who can make the dead "speak" like no one else. He helps solve Paris' most disturbing and complex crimes, but there's one case that continues to haunt him - the murder of his wife, Lise (Pauline Cheviller, Le Secret d'Elise), over a decade ago. After the tragic consequences of his investigation into Lise's death, Balthazar leaves everything to go around the world by boat, much to the chagrin of his colleagues: police commander Hélène Bach (Hélène de Fougerolles, Le Secret d'Elise, VA Savoir), her lieutenant Jérôme Delgado (Yannig Samot, Les Secrets), and his associates Eddy (Côme Levin, The Family, Missions) and Fatim (Philypa Phoenix, Osmosis). Without any news on his whereabouts for six months, Balthazar's name suddenly appears as a witness on a murder investigation file for a body that floated ashore on a small, remote Breton island. Hélène travels there to see what trouble the charming coroner has gotten himself into again and if she can bring him back to Paris. Series 3 sees more than just their lively reunion - between a mysterious island hiding many secrets, a sibling in a terrible revenge plot, victims taken as guinea pigs by a mad scientist, and an evil clown who kills at random, nothing will be spared. The relationship between Hélène and Balthazar is also strengthening, while the ongoing investigation into Lise's death takes a bloody and unexpected turn.

After 10 years abroad, Candice Renoir is back in the south of France and back on the case as a police commandant. Newly divorced with four kids, Candice feels rusty at work-and her skeptical colleagues don't help. Determined to prove her so-called weaknesses are strengths, she solves complex cases with common sense, acute observations, and a practical nature honed by the life of a busy mom. The story circles around French police officer Commandant Candice Renoir and her team solving different crime cases in a harbor city of south France. Candice herself is a mother of 4 children and recently divorced. Her daily routine is between solving crimes, taking out fights with her much younger female police superior officer, getting her kids to school - in addition - handling their problems too and keeping her team in line. It's a very funny and witty series with a lot of french charm and intelligent story writing. Not another dull crime series all over again. It's like a fresh french breeze on the TV screen. Candice is like a female Columbo version in high heels, handbag pink scarf and a 9mm in her holster. (Source: IMDb)

PBS • 2020 • IMDb: 7.5
miss-scarlet-and-the-duke-pbs-season-1-release-date.jpg

Eliza Scarlet joins forces with a Scotland Yard Inspector to solve crime in 19th century London. When her father dies, Eliza Scarlet finds herself facing a difficult choice. As an unmarried woman, she faces poverty without a husband to provide for her -- unless she takes on the challenge of running her late father's detective agency, which would be unthinkable for a respectable Victorian lady. Fortunately, she finds an unlikely partner in the unconventional Detective Inspector William Wellington of Scotland Yard, known as "The Duke," and the pair begin to tackle the crimes and mysteries of Victorian London together. Most of the best detectives come in duos, but chances are there’s never been a duo quite as spicy and delightful as Eliza Scarlet and Inspector William Wellington…or a show that will check as many must-watch boxes as Miss Scarlet & The Duke! It’s a smart, edgy mystery series set in 1882 Victorian London, with a fearless, quick-witted, and sassy female aspiring detective facing all manner of obstacles, from Victorian conventions to the efforts of her rakish and wily longtime friend/competition/potential love interest! Over Season 1’s six episodes, you’ll root for Eliza and her ever-growing band of outsiders as she navigates a man’s world using her guile, wit, and intellect to crack the case and prove herself. And you’ll delight in the crackling will-they-won’t-they energy between Eliza and the Duke as they alternately help and infuriate one another! Who are Miss Scarlet and The Duke? Eliza Scarlet is the whip-smart daughter of renowned London private detective Henry Scarlet, who raised her to believe that she might one day follow in his footsteps. When Henry suddenly dies, a heartbroken Eliza discovers his considerable debts, and her only option for survival is to take on the family business—which shouldn’t be so hard, considering the countless childhood hours spent at her father’s side learning the latest forensic techniques, and the countless hours she’s already putting in as a secret amateur sleuth! And though Victorian conventions conspire to keep Eliza—a woman!—from private investigation, she’ll use her pluck and guile to pay the bills and keep on her feet. William Wellington, aka The Duke, was a fatherless child of London’s streets when Henry Scarlet saw promise in the boy and took him under his wing, mentoring him as he rose through the police academy to become Detective Inspector. Despite his suave demeanor, it’s William’s wily ways and street smarts that make him such a talented detective—and keep Eliza’s blood boiling! Years before, Henry tasked William with looking after Eliza, which has made their long relationship…complicated. At once an authority figure and a rakish ladies’ man, William is sometimes Eliza’s protector, sometimes her competition; sometimes her adversary and sometimes her partner. Whatever the dynamic, it’s always built on genuine caring—and quite often shot through with tantalizing tension. Renewal Update: MASTERPIECE and Element 8 Entertainment have announced a second season of Miss Scarlet and The Duke, the popular mystery starring Kate Phillips as the fearless, first-ever female detective in Victorian London and Stuart Martin as her childhood friend and potential love interest Inspector William “The Duke” Wellington. Almost eight million viewers tuned in to the series’ first season, which premiered on PBS in January as part of MASTERPIECE ‘s 50th anniversary lineup. It was streamed 3.6 million times. “Miss Scarlet and The Duke was an instant fan favorite,” says Susanne Simpson, executive producer of MASTERPIECE. “Our audience couldn’t resist its lighthearted tone and the appealing characters so wonderfully portrayed by Kate Phillips and Stuart Martin. We’re delighted the show will return for a second season.”
