Welcome to this edition of the Passport newsletter. We have just added a new comedic drama, which is actually the follow-up series to Draper's Tours Mysteries! With a stellar all-star cast, Murder, They Hope is a fun series that is sure to delight.

For our historians, we have Secrets of the Dead featuring Althorp and the ancestral story of a medieval village that predates the grand estate.

Thrill seekers will enjoy the intense pacing of Kidnap & Ransom, and if it's comfort you are seeking, we have a lovely tribute to Norm Abram in The House that Norm Built.
