    I watch all the BBC shows from Netflix and Amazon Prime on Roku. Some I never knew about. I just finished watching the series The Fall. It's great. Also The Murdoch Mysteries is excellent, turn of the century setting. The Forsyte Saga, Foley's War, Rosemary and Thyme, so many great series from BBC. I seldom watch network shows now.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    Onebyone, I am going to check out your suggestions. Right now I am watching Monarch of the Glen on Netflix. It is a British series that takes place in Scotland, modern times. they are trying to raise money to save the estate.

    I loved Monarch of the Glen! The characters are wonderful. For a really great show, not what you think, watch MI-5. I got involved in that show after one episode.

    I only watched the first DVD. But also filmed in 2002, you all might want to watch The Forsyte Saga. There are two seasons on that series. This was my first introduction to BBC programming thru Masterpiece theatre. I am going to enjoy the next installment of Mr. Selfridge. I am old enough to remember Woolworth stores !!!

    NO NO NO Go back to the original Forsythe Saga...a bit slow but oh so much more detailed and moving. I hated the update. Ever see the original "Upstairs Downstairs"? Downton to the max. Vintage is so much better than the updates. If you enjoyed Mr S try "The Paradise" same premise but livelier, more real romance.
    Love all the British dramas.

    I have not see it but will put it on my list. I discovered "Larkrise to Candleford" last year and it is a hidden gem. How does BBC keep doing such good work and we "Yanks" .... not so much.

    I found that, too, and I've enjoyed it. I like the way Netflix suggests shows for you, so I've enjoyed Hotel Babylon, and The Grand.

    I loved Duchess on VHS! Here's a link to all the Masterpiece Mystery Productions:

    I have enjoyed many of them including Poldark and, a sleeper, Reckless!

    DH was watching MI-5, but there was too much torture in it for me. I had to stop watching Scandal, too, although I was trying to ignore the torture, I finally found I really didn't care what happened to the characters, so not worth my time.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, as I'm running out of things to watch in the evenings while I'm stitching.

    i, too, love Death in Paradise. I was wondering how the new inspector would be. I like him. I like the whole cast.
