This may come a bit early, but I think this is very welcome info for our North American audience. Folks keep asking when they are going to see the eagerly awaited Inspector Lynley Mysteries Series 5. Good news for you all, the fifth series will be broadcast via your local PBS stations in autumn 2007.

You can read all about this season right here by clicking on the respective episode titles. Be warned: there definitely are spoilers! The series will feature the episodes "Natural Causes", "One Guilty Deed", "Chinese Walls" and "In the Blink of an Eye" and will be starting from September 9th, 2007. These episodes are the ones that have been broadcast in the UK last summer. IL6 with two brand new specials hopefully is due to be on UK TV screens shortly and will premiere this very weekend in Australia.

As usual PBS is going to call this season six. Please note that PBS counts a bit awkward. Exactly the same season will no doubt appear shortly after the American broadcast as DVD edition via PBS/WGBH entitled as "The Inspector Lynley Mysteries Series 5" which coincidentally is the right way of counting.

Unfortunately I cannot give you reliable info on the question of region encoding. So for those of you in Europe: make sure that you own a region-free DVD player to avoid unpleasant surprises when ordering this edition. I'll try and keep you updated on the question of region encoding for this upcoming edition of IL5.

Happy sleuthing!
