The hierarchy seems firmly established in the standings of the regular legs of the GrandSlam Standard Series. Germans Simone Segatori and Annette Sudol won every time they entered a competition, from the first leg in Helsinki, Finland, to conquering the biggest field of the season in Stuttgart, Germany. Russians Dmitry Zharkov and Olga Kulikova are destined to be the perennial runners-up, even if they claimed their second places by narrowing the point margins separating them from the winners. The one time the Germans didn't dance, in the Moscow leg, Dmitry and Olga won the final with their highest total ever for the five Standard dances. Lithuanians Evaldas Sodeika and Ieva Zukauskaite are similarly cast to be the other runners-up of the Series, coming in third more often than not. Fortunately for the GrandSlam Series Final, more than a few experts predict that the established order could get reversed. If the runners-up should plan an overthrow, there is no better time to do that than in the "Showdown in Shanghai." Reserved for the top 12 couples in the GrandSlam rankings, and with points accrued in four of the regular legs, the Final is the most important competition of all.

Based on the short stories by G K Chesterton, Father Brown follows the kindly cleric as he solves crimes in his community. It is a quintessentially English world: drawing rooms in large country houses, miles of countryside, village halls and secret gardens, as well as country fairs, railway stations and rural parish churches. Each episode sees the enigmatic priest investigate a crime in his own particular way, using intuition and psychology. Father Brown discovers the truth of a crime by looking into the truth of the soul - the passions, dark secrets, hidden desires. Many years spent hearing his parishioners' confessions have given him an uncanny insight into the origins of evil and the workings of the criminal mind. But the stories are not concerned with judgement - Father Brown is more interested in saving souls than in bringing the guilty to justice.
