New series Spies of Warsaw. Stars David Tennant. The 1st ep. was so-so. Probably better if you haven't read the book. But it might improve. Tennant seems miscast to me (but I have read the novel) and he is sleepwalking through it.

New or a rerun? I remember seeing it before - but can't remember a thing.

Neither wiki nor IMDB is showing anything other than the 2013 run.

Oh yes. I hadn't noticed it was a repeat.

Being careful here for no spoilers.

I have recently discovered a few ways to watch quality drama here in NZ so am busy trying to catch up.

Broadchurch Season 3 just started this week here in the US on BBC America. Looks good! I have been watching a program here on our PBS channel "My Mother and Other Strangers" set in Northern Ireland during World War II. Having grown up in Northern Ireland (albeit after the war) I have been enjoying it.

Watching The Loch on ITV. Haven't made my mind up about it yet even after 4 episodes Think we are growing tired of the same-old-same-old crime/detective stories. They keep recycling the same old plot lines.

On the other hand, we were delighted to discover Grand Canal Journeys with Prunela Scales and her husband Tim West. Prunela is in the beginning stages of dementia and the most heart warming part of the series is the loving care that Tim shows towards her. (Channel 4 on demand).

Anyone watch The Living and the Dead last year on BBC? I'm hoping they have a second season.

Oh joy of joys. I absolutely love this show. It's a great counter to taking life too seriously. There's a place for it among things like Twin Peaks, House of Cards, Unforgotten, River, Homeland, Happy Valley and all the rest

I recently had the misfortune of stumbling across this programme on Netflix.

We suffered through three or four episodes before pulling the plug on what must be the worst TV show ever made.

Early series were good, but it has gone downhill in the last three with the loss of a few characters, including the one who wrote a lot of the scripts. Madge being only a very infrequent character is a great loss as was the chap who played her husband who sadly died
