Airdate: The Good Ship Murder

SBS sets sail with a new murder mystery in an early Friday night timeslot.

What’s this?

A drama series in an early evening timeslot.

SBS screens an 8 part mystery series The Good Ship Murder from Friday night.

The 2023 UK series is rated PG so on the lighter side of drama, but nice to see some variety in timeslots.

Sun, sea and murder. Jack Grayling is an ex-copper now moonlighting as a cabaret singer on board a luxury Mediterranean cruise ship, where he finds himself solving a wave of murder mysteries. Working alongside the ambitious, female First Officer Kate Woods and cheerful waiter Jamil, they soon become a formidable team of detectives. As the ship sails into La Rochelle, Jack and Kate must quickly put their differences aside when a mysterious passenger is found dead. While the mystery brings Jack and Kate closer, shrewd Jack somehow misses that Kate has a boyfriend, the prim and proper Second Officer Piers de Vresse. Kate wonders what would make a former cop become a lounge singer. And on the ships final journey into Valetta, a golden opportunity means Jack must decide whether to abandon ship, and Kate must decide if she should give him a reason to stay, while celebrity passenger Vida Devine has a hit song to die for.

Season One, Episode One:
Cop turned cruise ship singer Jack Grayling and First Officer Kate Woods embark on a new journey, encountering murder in port.

7:35pm Friday on SBS.

  1. I absolutely loved this series. It is is the light hearted series style of Death In Paradise. Shayne Ward and Catherine Tyldesday are wonderful together. They previously worked together on Coronation Street. It is actually Shayne Ward doing his own singing. He won UK The X Factor UK in series 2.
