    I really look up to her.

    FWIW I have noticed that many shows that are 90 minutes when shown on BBC were cut to 1hr on Masterpiece Theater.

    Currently watching (via magical means), the third series of Line Of Duty, which was on UK TV in April.

    If you haven't seen the previous series (six episodes each), it's well worth seeking them out. The first season features Lennie James, Morgan from The Walking Dead.

    I know that magic trick too and have seen all of the episodes. I loved every minute of it.

    I just watched that too and enjoyed it a lot. It's also on Hulu.

    Three eps into series three (constrained by SO's need for sleep!) and it's getting more intriguing as it goes! I originally thought it was three completely separate stories. Loving it.

    Just finished it off. Awesome. Satisfying conclusion, too. I thought it was going to be left hanging for a while, but it ended as well as could be expected.

    Need to revisit the first series to see if the plot of the second two is evident. I seem to remember it as a standalone.

    I think I read they're making a fourth series, will be interesting where it goes.

    Yes. Season four is scheduled for 2017. I suspect it WILL be a standalone.

    I really enjoy British police dramas, so after reading the reviews here on "Line of Duty", I just started a free week of Hulu to watch it. I'll decide after a week if I'm going to keep it.
    I asked a friend in the UK if she and her husband had watched LoD and she said they had and it was quite good. Her husband is a Detective Sergeant and his comment was that it was completely unrealistic but that he had enjoyed the show too :)

    'The Secret Agent'

    Looks like it's going to be a 3 episode series.

    The first episode is available via magical means.

    Watched "Secret City" yesterday. Lots of fun. Double-crosses, back-stabbing, and betrayals. Who doesn't like a good conspiracy tale?

    'Cape Town'

    Ok, this series is out of left field. I didn't want to create a thread just for it.

    It has a 'Lethal Weapon' vibe. It's in English.



    The 6 episode series is available via magical means.

    Hmmm, a South African-German production premiering in Poland. How does this qualify to be in the British TV Shows thread?

    They probably all talk funny, just like British people.

    Long...
    Name aside, this really has become the defacto non-US TV show thread.

    Change thread title to "The Official These People Sure Do Talk Funny Thread". I'm currently watching "Thirteen", which is superb, but I can only understand about every third word the male detective utters.

    You'll have to arrange for a referendum.
