Heatwave obviously affecting my brain at the moment. Within the past week I read about a show that I thought would appeal to me and remember thinking I could catchup online. I believe it was a one-word title, possibly beginning with U. I'd be attracted by crime/thriller/legal/contemporary drama and wouldn't turn my nose up at a subtitled programme. What was it I read about, please, MNers?

Just checking those out - thanks for speedy replies. I'll report back ...

Unforgotten - no (ironically I have watched that one)
Utopia - not the sort of thing that would appeal to me
Undercover - no, have seen that one already.

Sorry, I've turned into one of those OPs, haven't I?

iwouldgoouttonight Sat 23-Jul-16 18:42:38

Is it one of those like The Killing, The Bridge, The Fall?

(I am aware none of those have a U in let alone begin with one).

The one where they go off and live on a Scottish island?

Stellar67 Sat 23-Jul-16 18:53:05

Love Child?
The Out Laws?

I know neither meet the OP description but both are things on my possible watch list!

How kind you all are to make suggestions, but none is correct yet! Worth mentioning that I think it's a programme that is currently mid-series on one of the terrestrial/Freeview channels?

Not one word but new blood is currently on bbc?!

Not the point of your thread, but give Utopia a chance! Seriously brilliant, stylish, clever telly imo.

Optimist1 Sat 23-Jul-16 19:37:11

I'm a little ashamed at how many of these I have already seen! But your suggestions will at least help me find something engaging to watch. (I will give Utopia a go, Happy !)

I'm thinking it might be Gomorrah? OK that doesn't begin with a U lol. We have been watching it and it is good.

Ultraviolet is the one from a few years ago with Jack Davenport hunting down moredn-age vampires. Conspiracy theory-ish and well worth a watch!

Optimist1 Sun 24-Jul-16 18:48:22

A vampire-themed show wouldn't do me, I'm afraid. Googling all the suggestions for the shows I haven't already seen has been a diverting occupation, and I have spent the last hour and a half watching an episode of Beck (Scandi-cop-drama) on iPlayer! Pretty good stuff to while away an otherwise empty afternoon.

(Also third what the others said about Utopia. It's genuinely brilliant and I think if you like crime/legal stuff it should tick some boxes for you.)

The outlaws?

Recently started subtitled, part of Walter resents series. Only seen the first episode, but very promising.
