Well, it’s happened again. We’re in that dreadful bit of post-holiday winter where the cold, dark weather just seems to drag on. Luckily, BritBox’s February lineup includes several great new shows – one of them quite sunny.
Don’t have a BritBox subscription? You can sign up HERE on their website, or HERE on Amazon Video. Both options offer the same content, but some people find one or the other offers better compatibility with their devices or internet service provider.
Sometimes, there’s a short delay for new content to arrive on the Prime version of the channel, so if TV is a big part of your life and you demand to see every show immediately after it comes on, we recommend going direct (even if it means buying a Roku or similar device to get it on your TV).

February 14th BritBox Premieres
My Family (2000 to 2011)
This long-running family sitcom wasn’t especially popular with critics, but the British public loved it. Now, it’s coming to the US.
The show follows the lives of the Harper family, a middle-class family (aka “upper middle-class” if you’re American) based in Chiswick (west London). Robert Lindsay stars as Ben Harper, with Zoe Wanamaker as his wife Susan. Their kids were played by Kris Marshall (Death in Paradise), Daniela Denby-Ashe, and Gabriel Thompson.
Dad Ben is a dentist undergoing a mid-life crisis, mom Susan is a London tour guide and largely inept housewife…and the kids are typical teenagers who cause no end of trouble.
February (Date To Be Announced) BritBox Premieres
Beyond Paradise (2023)
This Death in Paradise spin-off follows DI Humphrey Goodman (Kris Marshall, My Family) and his fiancée, Martha (Sally Bretton, Not Going Out), as they leave the big city to start a new life in coastal Devon. Humphrey will take over as DI at the isolated Shipton Abbott police station, while Martha wants to start her own cafe.
The two want nothing more than a quiet, simple life amongst nature and good people – but it doesn’t take long for them to realise that country life has its own set of dangers.
