Beck Volume 2

Based on the characters of the hugely popular Martin Beck detective novels by Swedish husband-and-wife writers Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö, Beck – The Series sees the much-loved detective brought to life on the small screen. This collection of four feature-length films from 2016 sees detective Martin Beck investigating a murdered journalist, an unidentified body from a trailer fire, the brutal murder of a police officer and his family, and the cold shooting of two traffic officers by a man who is also later found dead.

Starring Peter Haber (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) as Beck, this volume sees one of the greatest police procedural partnerships come to an end as Beck is disbanded with the gruff Gunvald Larsson (Mikael Persbrandt – The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) to team up with a new partner, Oslo Detective Steinar Hovland, played by Kristofer Hivjul (Game of Thrones). Featuring the thrilling combination of complex woven details of police procedure and beautifully realised characters, this award-winning series continues to grow from strength to strength.

The Sound Of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride In Dolby Atmos

In December 2015 audio innovators Dolby invited us to their London HQ to shoot an interview with the people behind the incredible Dolby Atmos mix on Sherlock: The Abominable Bride.

The holiday special of the BBC’s fast-paced modernised crime drama starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth, was released in cinemas for New Year screenings and is now available on Blu – Ray which includes the Dolby Atmos mix.
Set in Victorian London, this special episode follows Sherlock Holmes (Cumberbatch) and John Watson (Martin Freeman) as they take on the mysterious case of Emelia Ricoletti (Natasha O’Keeffe), a crazed bride who opened fire on innocent bystanders in the street before turning the gun on herself. However, the vengeful bride later appears, seemingly from beyond the grave, to murder her husband. With help from his brother Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) and trusty sidekick Watson, will Sherlock be able to solve the case of the abominable bride?
