I liked the first season but I had to boycott it after the showrunner pulled that stunt. I am sure the ratings fell as a result

I should just watch the Danish version.

They solve the first season in the second season and then the other two are pretty much self-contained. The last two are really good and it ends well for a series. Thanks to Netflix for funding the last season and wrapping it up.

It's "Are You Being Served?". It was a hoot! I particularly like Young Mr. Grace, who was probably in his 80s and always had a beautiful and buxom nurse with him.

Yes, I saw all of those and enjoyed them. I did not see The Hour or Island at War, so I will check them out. Of course I saw House of Cards (both versions), but trying to find some more. Yes, I agree, the Killing was great. I also watched and really liked Ricky Gervais in Derik (Netflix). You have to get past the first two episodes, as at first it will appear kinda weird and different, but then you develop a real appreciation of it and there are some really funny parts and it is very touching.

This is not British, but another good series, well done that I really enjoyed it is called Enlightened, with Lora Dern on Amazon Prime.

Has anyone watched George Gently? I watched the first episode last night and liked it. I wonder if it gets better as it goes along. We just finished Foyle's War and are looking for another series. It seems like we've seen all the detective shows that are popular.

After seeing several people mention "Grantchester", I've just found it on PBS so starting to watch. I think the pastor/priest played an attorney in "Death Comes to Pemberly".

That's right, he was the love interest of Georgiana.

...and his brother, Edward Norton, played a priest in "Keeping the Faith".

BTW, I really enjoy George Gently, set in the area I grew up, and in the same time period.

Not brothers.

They weren't even born and raised in the same nation or continent, let alone being 15 years apart in age.

I am sorry but I have already claimed George Gently as my British series boyfriend earlier on this thread.

One reason I find George Gently (the show) so good is that it is a period piece that moves through the sixties, but to me it is not self-conscious or even seemingly aware of it, and the characters mostly have the sensibilities and ethics of the time the show is set in. Some shows, like Downton Abbey and Madmen, are sometimes very awkward about reconciling the period with today's sensibilities, but I don't find that in GG. Imo GG (the show and my Martin Shaw as GG) just gets better and better.

I watch Downton Abbey and Grantchester. I don't think that I have ever watch any others, but I am on the look out for them now. I am really enjoying them.

Love Orphan Black but even though it's on BBC America, it's not British - it's Canadian.
