    WPC 56 has also returned, that's a solid show.

    New one, Suspects, looks good.

    First ep of Line of Duty was very good.

    The dialog in Suspects was disjointed and amateurish. I have no problem believing it was not scripted. Won't be watching the rest of the episodes.

    One I've been enjoying recently is the anthology series Inside No. 9, written by and starring two of the League of Gentlemen. Three episodes so far and they have all been excellent, in fact getting better each week. Very dark and twisted but if that's your thing then I suggest you seek it out.

    New season of Jonathan Creek starts this Friday. There have been a couple of specials in the last few years but this is the first new season since 2004. Unfortunately there's only going to be 3 episodes :thumbsdown:

    'The Widower'

    The Widower is a three-part drama from ITV Studios based on the crimes of convicted murderer, Malcolm Webster. It tells how, over a thirteen year period, a seemingly mild‐mannered male nurse, Malcolm Webster, played by Reece Shearsmith set about poisoning and murdering his first wife, attempting to do the same to his second wife and moving on to a further scheme to deceive his third fiancée.

    I'd not Getting On (either version) until this week, I really like it, all 3 British Series' are on Hulu+ and HBO is doing Season 2 later this year.

    In case anyone is still interested in Orphan Black all of season 1 is free on Amazon Prime. Season 2 should be starting soon I see all of season 1 OnDemand too.

    Wrong thread -- that show comes from the "America" portion of "BBC America."

    But, yes, Season 2 premieres on BBC America on April 19.

    You should be glad there were only 3 Jonathan Creek's, they were terrible.

    Karl Pilkington Moaning of Life was pretty good.

    DCI Banks is solid as ever.

    Not sure if this one has been mentioned but I'm currently watching the second season of The Hour, about an investigative news show in mid-1950's England. Subtle, low-key, very well-written and acted. Excellent show.

    Masterpiece Theater is showing a Mr. Selfridge marathon and Mr. Selfridge II.

    I figure I can pass on the first Season because it's on Netflix, if not Amazon.

    Alos Orphan Black is starting on BBCA.

    To repeat Orphan Black = not a British show.
