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.
When I get home I will look that up.

I've just caught up with all 3, but because I'm on nights I will be behind again soon.

Well watched the second part of the Shadow Line tonight, much better, in fact I thought it was cracking. Can't wait for the next instalment!

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Still sadly haven't seen Shadow Line yet (not had time to catch up). Heard mixed feedback but sure will see eventually.

But Luther back soon (beginning of June I think). Yay. When I first started watching series, thought: "wtf...this isn't gritty crime/detective drama." Then I suddenly thought of Ruth Wilson and Idris Elba's performances as Lynchian black comedy, and suddenly enjoyed a lot more...

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Finally caught up with Exile, good stuff. I've still got The Promise, The Shadow Line and The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher to watch. Recommendations for what's next?

Last night's ep of The Shadow Line was excellent. We were shouting "run away!" at the TV. There's a Very Bad Man and it isn't the one you think it's going to be. Big shocker at the end of the ep, too as per usual.

The Shadow Line just gets better every week as far as I'm concerned.

Have not seen that one yet.
One good thing about moving out soon is I will have access to the TV when I want it.

That's definitely a good thing of having your own place.

What I find v interesting about it is that I can't really see where it's going, that's refreshing, and there's another 4 episodes I think!

Re: BBC Original British Drama

I just want to say that The Shadow Line is one of my favourite shows on right now. Great cast throughout, especially Rafe Spall and Stephen Rea, and the always excellent Eccles. Great plot that keeps you on your toes constantly, which I like very much. Can't wait for tomorrow's episode.

I also caught The Field of Blood which was a surprising gem with another great cast (hello to David Morrissey) and interesting plot. Also saw (and liked) Exile earlier too - John Simm, Jim Broadbent and Olivia Colman all on fine form.

Did anyone see United, the dramatisation of the 1958 Munich air crash? I liked that programme too, although I thought Dougray Scott's portrayal of Matt Busby seemed a little... strange.

Overall, between these shows and an enjoyable series of Doctor Who, this is proving to be quite a fascinating season of programmes. Bring on Torchwood!

There's been a lot of chances to say hello to Auntie David lately. He's in Blitz, too.
