The Inspector Lynley Mysteries airs in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment (formerly BBC Prime) channel. Episodes are split in two to make them an hour each in length, effectively doubling the number of episodes per season.

Season 1 Synopsis

Based on the novels from the best-selling stories by Elizabeth George, this series of contemporary murder mysteries feature the charismatic Inspector Lynley, whose title as the Eight Earl of Asherton fuels a sparky relationship with his working class sidekick Detective Sergeant Barbara Havers.
