We’re throwing it all on the grill for you in July: All five seasons of the sizzling hot British crime drama Scott & Bailey. The series was the highest-rated new drama when it premiered in England in 2011 and is available July 1 for the first time to THIRTEEN audiences, only streaming on THIRTEEN Passport. We’re also serving up documentaries on America’s first foodie, and the science behind food.

New in Passport

Scott & Bailey

We’re thrilled to introduce these two tough British female detectives to New York audiences. Janet Scott and Rachel Bailey are hard-driving colleagues on Manchester Metropolitan Police’s prestigious Murder Investigation Team, and supportive friends who help each other navigate personal crises of their own making. All five seasons will be available to binge-watch starting Saturday, July 1. Watch here.

The Great British Baking Show

The Great British Baking Show has returned for its fourth season on THIRTEEN with all episodes available now. Enormously popular both in England and the U.S., the series follows 12 amateur bakers from all walks of life as they compete to be named Britain’s best. British Telly Dish blogger Deborah Gilbert shares insights into the new contestants and show challenges. Watch all episodes now.

American Masters: James Beard: America’s First Foodie

Today’s American food movement can be traced back to one man: cookbook author, journalist, television celebrity and teacher James Beard. Watch here.

Food – Delicious Science

From a home base at the UK’s leading food lab, this three-part series takes viewers on a savory global journey with hosts Dr. Michael Mosley, a physician and PBS veteran documentarian with an interest in dietary science, and James Wong, a botanist whose childhood in the jungles of Borneo sparked a lifelong passion for plants and their uses. The pair travels the world to explore how the hidden chemistry in every mouthful of food contributes to the nourishment and building of the human body. Watch the three–part series here.

Dark Angel – Masterpiece

If you like your multiple murders all in a single sitting, then we’ve got the program for you. The true story of Victorian-era serial killer Mary Ann Cotton unfolds in Dark Angel, a one-hour and 52-minute dramatization starring Joanne Froggatt (who played sweet Anna on Downton Abbey). Learn more about the times of Mary Ann Cotton and the Masterpiece special from our British Telly Dish blogger, Deborah Gilbert. Watch Dark Angel here.

Pride Month

For Gay Pride month we’d like to pay tribute to Vicious, the outstanding comedy series starring two literal Knights of British theater and film.


Sirs Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi star as romantic partners who bicker so much they make the Golden Girls seem like Care Bears. Vicious tells the story of Freddie (Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Derek Jacobi), who have lived together and sniped at one another in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years. Underneath their vicious, co-dependent fighting, they have a deep love for one another. The couple is often joined by feisty best friend Violet (Frances de la Tour, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) and Ash (Iwan Rheon, Game of Thrones), their young, upstairs neighbor. Watch Vicious here.

Playing Catch Up

Grantchester – Masterpiece

The new Season 3 of Grantchester – Masterpiece airs its second episode on Sunday, June 25 at 9pm. If you haven’t yet seen them, all 12 episodes from Season 1 and Season 2 are available to stream only for Passport members. How can a man of the cloth cause such a stir?
