TX Time: 18h00

TX Time: 20h30
Genre: Comedy-Drama

Cross a mystery novelist with a rock star and you would get Nick Castle. He's got Jagger's swagger and James Bond's way with the ladies.

Although the handsome writer seems to have everything - fame, fans and females - he's grown weary of it all. In fact, he's just killed off the legendary character who's sold millions of books for him.

But when a real-world copycat murderer starts staging murder scenes from Nick's novels and NYPD Detective Beckett asks him for help, Nick feels the old blood pumping in his veins again.

Channel: Universal Channel (DStv 117)
TX Time: 19h10
Genre: Drama, Police Procedural

Dr. Temperance Brennan is a highly skilled forensic anthropologist who works at the Jeffersonian Institute in Washington, DC, and writes novels as a sideline.

When the standard methods of identifying a body are useless - when the remains are so badly decomposed, burned or destroyed that CSI gives up - law enforcement calls in Brennan for her uncanny ability to read clues left behind in the victim's bones.

Most law enforcement can't handle Brennan's intelligence, her drive for the truth, or the way she flings herself headlong into every investigation.

Andries Melck, also known as 'Wit Andries' (White Andries), hates everyone and everything. He wants to get even with all political leaders, his church, his doctor, commerce and social life in general, which he loathes.

Andries lost his farm in a long legal battle and has become embittered. His wife left him, his children are not speaking to him and he ends up squatting with Paulus Tshukudu – his former farm manager.

Squatting - and the squatters he meets - slowly changes his attitude towards people and life.
