A look at the TV you'll be able to add to your collection in April.

The Musketeers Series 2

Stella Series 4

Hailed by critics as ‘funny, clever and totally believable’, Ruth Jones’s brilliant show returns for a fourth series on DVD. As we catch up with the people of Pontyberry, Stella (Ruth Jones) and Michael (Patrick Baladi) and their merged families are living in domestic bliss/chaos. So, while a contented Stella heads off to her nursing job, Michael has to contend with drum ’n’ bass and crying infants while practising as a solicitor from home. Stella Series 4 on DVD also includes the Xmas Special 2014.

Arthur & George 
Release Date: 13th April
The three-part ITV drama starring Martin Clunes as Arthur Conan-Doyle.

Moone Boy Series 3
Release Date: 13th April
It’s 1991 and Martin Moone (David Rawle) is a little older and a lot wiser. Well, slightly wiser. Okay, not much wiser at all. But that’s probably because the words of wisdom from his imaginary friend Sean Murphy (Chris O’Dowd) are as useless as ever. However that doesn’t stop Sean from leading Martin into all sorts of new scrapes and adventures. DVD extras include ‘Out Takes’ and ‘Deleted scenes’.  Moone Boy Series 1-3 DVD box set will also be released on 13th April and priced £30.63.

Orphan Black Series 2
Release Date: 20th April
The multi-award-winning Orphan Black returns to BBC DVD. Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) is Orphan Black – the result of a unique genetics experiment. A suicide in Series 1 leads Sarah to stumble across the truth of her identity, and others like her. Series 2 hits the ground running with Sarah now in a desperate race to find her missing daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler).. Her scorched earth tactics have sparked a war with the pro-clone Rachel (also played by Tatiana Maslany), dividing and endangering all the clones, which leads to the emergence of new enemies and culminates in a shocking finale that’s not to be missed.  Orphan Black Series 1 & 2 box set will also be released on 20th April and is available on DVD for £35.7 and Blu-ray for £40.84.

Release Date: 20th April
From EMMY award-winning writer Jimmy McGovern (The Street, Cracker, The Accused) comes a new BBC Two drama based on the founding of Botany Bay in Australia. In 1787 Britain banished its unwanted citizens - orphans, petty thieves, prostitutes and highwaymen - to Sydney, Australia. Among the first convicts are close friends Elizabeth Quinn (MyAnna Buring, Ripper Street) and Tommy Barrett (Julian Rihind-Tutt, The Hour), who are engaged in an illicit relationship, and their friend James Freeman (Russell Tovey, Him & Her). When Tommy and Elizabeth’s relationship is revealed to those in charge, it sets in motion a series of events that forces the pragmatic, idealistic Governor Phillip (David Wenham, Top Of The Lake) into further opposition with his nemesis Major Ross, a man who thinks the only chance of survival is to rule with an iron fist. ‘Behind The Scenes’ feature on the DVD extras.
