    Well it's obvious the series that'll continue is the ones about lesbians copping off anyway.

    Wait.

    Who died at the end of last season.

    What?

    I have memories that don't make sense and can't be real.

    Nina?

    Mitchell got George to kill him, and George is leaving in this series.

    As is someone else apparently, I don't watch it but doesn't sound like many of the original cast will be left now.

    Annie will be the only original character left. Not sure about Nina, but if she's still there she'll at least be from the first series, while there's a werewolf who was a recurring character last series back and a new vampire.

    I do know that Alice isn't in it as much which saddens me. I hear she's going to be back for season 3, though. I need my psychopath crush in the show. :lol:

    Looks cool, nice to see Gillian Anderson there :)

    BTW, anyone else wact The Line of Duty that's been on BBC2 the last 6 weeks?

    Not exactly the Shadow Line but I thought it was quite good

    Yep, looks like we have permanently stolen her from the Americans, which is good. We deserve her more anyway.

    I loved it. A few niggles, not least the painful Wire-wannabe bits on the streets and even in some of the dialogue, but otherwise 5 hours well spent. Totally agree it had nothing on The Shadow Line but what has? I hear a second series is already confirmed too, which I think is actually needed. Wrapping up with the captions, as it was a real story, was too rushed for my liking.

    Also, you really cannot go wrong with Craig Parkinson.

    I started watching it last night but thanks to painkillers wasn't paying attention. They already renewed it for a second series.
