    Yes, it's being imported to the US by PBS and shown over the next three weeks as a MASTERPIECE MYSTERY! series.

    For whatever reason, Encore Western can or chooses to run western televsion series, but for whatever reason (because fellow cable channel Sleuth and small broadcast network Retro TV buy 'em all up? Not really) Encore Mystery doesn't choose to do so.

    As far as I know, Sleuth is the only cable station so far to have run THE POKER CLUB, the film based on Ed Gorman's story...and they not so often...

    Not trying too hard, to say the least.
