It is only with your support that we are able to bring you Doc Martin, Keeping Up Appearances, Mum, Marley’s Ghosts, Hold the Sunset – and whatever British series comes next. Most of the programs we air come through PBS, all in one monumental package that does not include BritComs. Once we made the commitment to acquire the rights to these series, we knew it was the right decision based on your positive comments.
But as these broadcast rights are limited, we look to you for help in keeping commercial-free British Comedies on KMOS with a tax-free donation.
Doc Martin - Series begins anew!
Thursdays at 9 p.m. & Saturdays at 10 p.m.
Sundays at 10:30 p.m. & Tuesdays at 1 p.m.
This catchy comedy drama stars Martin Clunes as Martin Ellingham, whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. The series details the trials and tribulations of the brash Ellingham, once a celebrated London surgeon who left his job after developing a phobia to blood. After retraining as a general practitioner, he gets a job in the beautiful but sleepy village of Portwenn, replacing their deceased local doctor-but his abrasive personality doesn't exactly mesh with the pace of life in Cornwall.
Currently Out of Rotation.
Starring Olivier Award winner and BAFTA nominee Lesley Manville, Mum is a brand new family comedy seen through the eyes of Cathy, a mother in her late fifties
who finds herself at a milestone in life after the death of her husband. Over the course of one year, starting with the funeral in January and ending on New Year's Eve, Cathy must navigate the everyday realities of this new era of her life alongside the good intentions of her lovably baffling family. Offering a refreshingly funny and modern perspective on
an often overlooked stage in our lives, Mum is the story of a woman discovering who she is again and maybe, if she could only see him, finding love second time around...
Hold the Sunset
Thursdays at 8:30 p.m.
Comedy legend John Cleese stars in this warmhearted
Rom-Com. Edith's dreams of retirement to the sun with her long-term suitor Phil are shattered when her 50 year old son Roger arrives home, seeking to recapture his boyhood happiness..

Hyacinth Bucket (pronounced "bouquet") goes to incredible lengths in her quest for perfection. Hers is a spick-and-span house. Her downtrodden husband, Richard, acts as chauffeur in their immacul
ately kept car. Their permanently absent son has a superior name, Sheridan. Even the empty milk bottles sparkle on the doorstep after their obligatory rinse in the dishwasher.
Her family and neighbors insist upon being regular people, eccentric in their own ways. Hyacinth tries to bring them up to her standard - is she up to the task?

Marley Wise has a rare gift: she can talk to the dead, which sadly now includes
her husband, her lover, and the local vicar. Marley’s Ghosts is a new comedy about a woman who tries to work, love and, most importantly, live, while sharing her life with three ghosts. Can they all learn to co-exist under the same roof?
