Lilting on BBC iplayer was a nuanced, sensitive and respectful drama. Highly recommend it.
I've just realized it was shown in 2014.

I apparently watch in Snoop's words "Stinky's crappy zombie etc TV" but I care not!
I'm liking the most recent episodes of Grimm- I've watched it since season one- still enjoy it

Last night I started watching Dr Foster on Netflicks, and I only watched the first two episodes, but I think it might be good. The first episode is a bit slow, but it then gets going quite nicely. It might be more of a 'woman's' thing though....my husband wandered off....my son liked it though - bit of bad language and brief sex!

Yes.

The American version - Gracepoint - wasn't bad either. Breaking Bad's Skyler played the woman cop in that one.

Watched a couple of episodes of The Hairy Bikers Guide to Great British pubs ( or something like that ) on BBC iplayer, one for Bristol and one for Liverpool.

Shockingly I had been in most of the Bristol ones, a few included were the Hole in The Wall, The Ostrich and a few others in Redland and around the floating harbour

Last time I was in the Hole in the Wall was for a xmas dinner some time in the 80s.

Booze cruises were always fun - albeit really just a pub crawl by boat.

No doubt the Coronation Tap was included.

Oh my - The Hole in the Wall (Queens Square) used to be my old stomping ground, particularly on a Friday after work! I used to work at the council offices just across from it..

Coronation Tap brings back some fond memories too, lol.

Small world!

I'd have thought you'd be more the 'Volley' type. It was The Naval Volunteer in my day but I see it's had a name change.

This is a handy collection of programmes which may well be quite good and worth trying. I'm going to try Dr Foster to see if there are some GP tips to learn
