    I recommend The Good Karma Hospital (six episode series) for its exotic richness and feel good story lines.
    Heart broken doctor responding to a magazine ad to work in paradise takes a chance on a change of life and scenery.
    Is she in for a surprise.

    Been watching a few things.

    3 of 5 through Doctor Foster Season 2. Season 1 was great but this one is very over the top :)

    Started watching Alan Carr Chatty Man interviews on YouTube, there are some hilarious moment.

    Best at the moment is on Netflix (in the US), Jack Whitehall's Travels with My Father. Some clearly setup but a comedy doc series about young Jack traveling in Asia with his father.

    We have been binging on Taskmaster. I haven't laughed this much at TV in a while.

    Been enjoying Jamie Oliver's cooking/chat show. However the name is escaping me right now.

    Voice UK and Dancing with the Stars Ireland both returned this weekend. Great British Railway Journeys also returned with a new season this past week.

    I'm really enjoying some of the British and Australian shows that I have been watching lately.
    Peaky Blinders
    The Take (2009) with Tom Hardy
    The Fear
    Retribution
    Fortitude
    Wentworth
    The Straits

    I'm looking for other suggestions of gritty crime/drama type series. I'm also game for period pieces about British colonies (or others as long as its in English) or war/historical events.

    Why in the world would you steer someone looking for British shows, away from the British shows thread? Just ridiculous.

    And as to why I posted the link - maybe it has something to do with folks being scolded multiple times when mentions of non-British shows occurred.

    I watched the first episode of the most recent series of Vera, which is on BritBox. I really liked it. It was a zippy 90 minute mystery.

    I've also been watching Puppy Love, which is a 30 minute comedy, also on BritBox.

    Additionally, if you haven't seen it yet, try Mum, also on BritBox. The entire first season is there and the second season is coming soon (already airing in the UK). It really is a gem.
