    Part of that is because the guys on CSI are doing up to 3X as many episodes per year. If an actor in the UK wants to keep busy, they have to work on more than just one project per year.

    That was my point, in a round about way.

    I'm liking this show a lot. The 2nd ep recording was fubard, so I found it through magical means and then decided that as long as I'm at it, I'll just get the whole series.
    I have no problem accepting David Tennant as a character that isn't the Doctor, but I have a hard time accepting Olivia Colman (the lady cop) as anyone other than Sophie on Peep Show.

    I rewatched Hot Fuzz yesterday and she was in that as a raunchy cop. For me she's one of the best at acting multiple characters without just playing herself all the time.

    Does anyone know if there was a new episode of Broadchurch last night (Wednesday, Sept. 11)? My TiVo didn't record it, claiming that that same episode had been recorded recently.

    Thanks.

    I had the same problem...but I saw that it wasn't going to record in time to schedule a manual recording.

    The ep should be available on BBC-A on demand within 24 hours.

    Thanks. I looked at their site and didn't see it, just promos. I'll look again later when it's been a full 24 hours. :)

    My DIRECTV DVR didn't record it either. :mad: And I can't believe they do not rerun it all week. Next week's episode is set to record, so someone definitely screwed the pooch on the guide data. :(

    Same here. Clobbered by the 28-day rule.

    Thanks, Lori, for the heads-up about BBCA on Demand.

    I got distracted because a new science show hosted by Alan Alda was airing in the same timeslot. If there had been nothing set to record, I might have said, hey, where's Broadchurch?

    Setting the SP for all with duplicates now....

    Well that sucks. I just set it to record via DirecTV On Demand, but it is only available in SD.

    Loving the show so far.

    I had to get last week's episode from Amazon - I think HD was $2.99. The only issue is that there was no CC - or at least I couldn't get it to work. CC really helps on these BBC shows.
