Unforgotten, with current "can do no wrong" Nicola Walker just completed three successful seasons. I thought you had your finger on the pulse

I would watch Nicola Walker mop a floor. Very talented lady

No Offence Season 3. Brilliant and funny police drama. It is written by the talented Paul Abbott who also wrote Cracker and Shameless

Black Earth rising on BBC1. Loosely based on the ICC and Rwandan genocide. John Goodman, Roseannes Husband stars

Strangers staring Jon Simm. Thriller set in Hong Kong

Just started watching Patriot which seems to have slipped under the radar.

I only discovered it from someone mentioning it in the comments part of a Killing Eve review. There are similarities.

Plus, I think I'm in love with the elfin faced trainee.
I watched episode 1 last night (the one with the necklace) and so far so good. I like it.

STILL OPEN ALL HOURS.

Saw some episodes in the in the past but now all episodes from all 4 seasons are available on BBC. Silly stuff but makes me chuckle. Great ensemble, great writing and acting.

I enjoyed Killing Eve. I have just started Black Earth Rising and so far impressed. Trust is on my list as well.

I read a recommendation for the series Patriot in the Guardian comments for Killing Eve. In the same vein - spy/secrecy stuff but not taking itself too seriously.

Black Earth Rising seems to have passed me by. Press might be worth a look.

Better Call Saul and Lodge 49 wrapped up this week, both have been renewed for a season 5 and season 2.

Was not expecting the ending of Lodge 49 to be what it was.

I liked the way Better Call Saul ended.. S'all good. Probably my favourite show of the last 10 years and only eclipsed by the brilliant awkwardness of one Alan Partridge.

I didn't watch Lodge 49 but saw enough ads for it. The crazy thing about Better Call Saul was the episode was 75 minutes long and I'd be surprised if more than 50 minutes was the actual show..so many adverts..thank goodness for a PVR to skip through the dreck.
