A few complaints about Sarah Lancashire from Oldham has a very bad Bristolian accent. Go figure.

It's a Bristol accent, I don't think she could can make it any worse.

I hadn't heard of that. Filmed in Cardiff according to IMDB - it wouldn't be the first thing to be set somewhere but shot somewhere else - but could be worth a look anyway.

Halt and Catch Fire. Four seasons, final one aired last year. Set around the computer / internet revolution from 70's through to 90's. Good cast, well acted. To be recommended!

Just started watching that as well this w/e. Only 2 episodes in. They seem to have captured the mystical magic of 1983 very well.

Ronnie O'Sullivan's American Hustle was worth a watch. It was originally aired on the UK History Channel.

There’s some good stuff from UK available at the moment.

McMafia. BBC
Silent Witness. BBC
Shetland. BBC (coming soon)
Hard Sun. BBC
Vera. ITV
Next of KIn. ITV
Kiri. Ch.4
National Treasure. Ch 4
Before We Die. Ch. 4

I’m having great trouble keeping up with the good stuff that’s available for streaming today.
