Spirits are dampened, however, when a former Prom King is found floating dead in the hotel pool and three people from Aurora’s past emerge as the prime suspects in the case. Sally (Lexa Doig) and the members of the Real Murders Club join Aurora to solve the mystery. Marilu Henner also stars.
As Season 3 of this series adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s fantasy epic opens with a premiere called “A Winter’s Tale,” Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle) is doing everything he can think of to fly under the supernatural radar of multiple deities, all of whom are working their own agenda.

Graham Greene co-stars.
James Herriot’s stories about his life as a 1930s Yorkshire veterinarian get a glowing new treatment in this series, starring Nicholas Ralph as Herriot, with Samuel West as Herriot’s crusty mentor, Siegfried Farnon.
