Is Luther any good? I really liked Idris Elba in The Wire, and the subject matter sounds appealing.

I thought that Luther was very good, but then I'm a big fan of Idris Elba anyway!

Renewed for second season as well.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

^^Thank you for mentioning Luther getting a second series. Watched it last year and didn't hear too much about how it did and worried-with that ending, whether the storyline would ever be resolved.

I loved Luther;it made me a HUGE Idris Elba fan. I just hope that BBCA doesn't take forever to air the second season here.

Yus. That's what you get for calling a Welsh lass English, I suppose.

Exile and Doctor Who have already started (obviously), The Shadow Line starts later this week. Not sure about the others.
What did you think of "Exile?" I'm interested in seeing it, if and when it ever makes its way to BBCA.
I've only watched the first episode so far but that as very interesting, I thought. I won't get a chance to watch the other two till next week.

Luther I quite liked when I got past the first couple of episodes. But they didn't actually give it a second series they just gave it two 2 hour specials.

Shadowline: bloody brilliant. Complex, grown-up, first class British drama. Made no concessions to easing you into the story; you just had to hang on and work it out for yourself. Stellar cast, all superb.
Sounds good, I taped it and plan to watch this evening!

I really can't compliment Shadow Line enough. If you didn't see it, catch it on iPlayer because you will not regret it.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Hopefully, as long as my media centre is still on, I'll have it to watch next week.

I second that recommendation. It was brilliant.

I'm getting a Total Recall vibe (without spoiling anything).

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Watched Shadow Line. I was underwhelmed, I must say. Nothing was bad, but nothing really clicked with me. I think I was put off by Dumb and Dumber in the teaser and it put me in a critical mood for the rest of it. I did enjoy the reveal at the end, so I will be tuning in again to see if a different start will make me like it more.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

I finally got around to watching the first part last night. I too was slightly underwhelmed, but it was definitely good enough for me to keep watching. Have to say I found the criminal/Eccleston bits far more interesting than the police side of things, although the reveal at the end was interesting.

I also enjoyed Who spotting. Ninth Doctor, check, woman out of Midnight, check, Rani's dad, check...

It appears to be 7 episodes long so I'm assuming there'll be a lot of twists and turns on the way.

The guy playing the psycho nephew was really odd...

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Did everyone in Englandshire get The Field of Blood? It carried on the sheer excellence of BBC drama just now. Stellar cast too, it was like spot the star. Very gripping.
