Into Wallander, The Killing, No Offence, Broadchurch etc....anything decent on at the moment? Don't have Netflix but can at have on catch up. TV just seems crap right now for those of us not into soaps, the oympics or big brother...

Nope. I've resorted to watching old episodes of Wire In The Blood on demand. I loved Broadchurch and Happy Valley, The Fall. Hopefully there will be a good drama on in the Autumn. Homeland is back then, thank goodness!

The Night of. It's a US series - remake of Criminal Justice - if you have Kodi?

Don't have Kodi, wish I did (currently typing with a re-run of Doc Martin in the background)!

I don't know what Kodi is! Loved Happy Valley too. Am sure there'll be something on in the autumn. I haven't seen Wire in the Blood. Will have a look on the iPlayer...

I was looking for a satisfying drama series to watch but there were none so I've resorted to downloading all the old episodes of Cold's amusing but mindless and not what I had in mind smile

Do you have Prime? We've enjoyed Bosch. Really bored of telly at the moment.

Wire in the Blood is good, very gritty, based on the novels by Val McDermead (spl). Got the gorgeous Robson Green in it. Hermione Norris is good too. Haven't got Prime. There's a new series of DCI Banks soon I think, might be ok
Cold Feet is a nice light hearted bit of fun, I could watch James Nesbitt do the weather! But I do love a gritty crime!.

I have heard good things about Wire in the Blood but haven't seen any yet so that a good idea.

Telly is awful at the minute, I keep having long baths and early nights.

I forgot how dishevelled James Nesbitt looked on the first series of Cold Feet, he looks younger and better now.

It is rubbish, I agree. When you flick through all the channels and your heart flips because there's an old Midsummer Murders on that you missed first time round, you realise how dire it is. Wire In The Blood is very good, hope you enjoy it. Agree about James N, he's like a fine wine, matures very well.

I'm watching Dinner Date most nights at the moment....Definitely checking out Wire in the Blood.

Tv at the moment is dismal. We have a kodi box but I don't know how to use it. My DP is away working and he's the one who knows what to do with it.

There's a new one starting on BBC 1 around the 20 th of August. Check it out.

Dc Banks is coming back tomorrow, on itv I think.

I just discovered Hinterland, first series is on Netflix. I liked it even though it's a bit far fetched but then it is telly!

It's been terrible over the summer, sweet FA to watch. DCI Banks starting tomorrow thank goodness, hope there will be some other new series coming.

Are you watching One of us, it's on now and started last week on BBC1, it a bit like a Broadchurch type series.
Also not really crime but Wolf Creek series starts tonight on Fox

CoolCarrie Tue 30-Aug-16 21:40:47

One of Us looks good but missed the first episode, hope it is on catchup or bbc I player! Does anyone know ?

iamEarthymama Tue 30-Aug-16 21:43:08

We are watching One of Us as I write.

Looking good so far, and Juliet Stevenson is in it so a win for me.
I have loved her since I first saw her in Stratford with Alan Rickman, many many years ago.

I agree that TV is dire, I listen to books on Audible or to the radio at the moment.
