    British television at the moment -- is great --

    It is not often that I am excited about TV programmes - BUT - have just watched the 2nd instalment of the latest Dallas series - I love that programme and ---- Downton Abbey new series starts on Sunday !!

    The Paradise and Mr. Selfridges are both great shows as well.
    I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!

    I love British detective show: Lovejoy, Frost, Inspector Morris, Lewis, Midsomer Murders, Pie in the Sky, Scott and Bailey, New Tricks, DC Banks, anything Agatha Christy. Doc Martin. I signed up for an online service called Acorn TV wbich has a lot of these. We cancelled cable because too expensive so watch alot of Netflix, youtube, and acorn Tv. I do miss news shows but listen to talk radio when in my sewing room.

    If you like those series you might want to look out for two series, 1 is Shetland about the police in the Shetland Islands (small settled islands off shore in Scotland and the other is Vera about a murder detective working around Newcastle in Northern England. They are both in the Morse/Lewis type! Hope this helps. But no. I can't stand Downton Abbey or anything to do with. The writer is a complete #########.
    maker of the 'Oh Dear Jane' Quilt, or should I say trying to the the maker of it?

    LOVE Vera! Haven't seen Shetland over here yet. Will definitely watch for it. Also enjoyed Bletchley Circle and the Midwives (Chummy is wonderful!)

    Endeavour (Morse as a young detective) is excellent. Also enjoying George Gently. Both are showing up on Masterpiece Mystery. Case Histories is good too, as is Father Brown. Haven't seen Shetland or Vera yet.

    Is there going to be a return of The Paradise? My husband and I both really enjoyed that series.
