SEASON 3 NEWS! SEASON 3 NEWS! SEASON 3 NEWS!
 
2012: May 11
According to my sources - this is only tentative and yet to be confirmed - the BBC is considering screening Season 3 starting 8 July.

The UK DVD release date of June 18 has not changed so far on Amazon.co.uk, but I suspect it might.

2012: April 24
According to Peter Harness (the lead writer of Season 3, replying to my Tweet this morning) it will not appear on UK TV screens until "June sometime". This is very disappointing, considering that Kenneth Branagh hinted that it would be the beginning of April (when he appeared on the Graham Norton show back in March).
