Hi all

Quick question as title says! Will there be any plot spoilers if I watch series 4 currently on iplayer? I've watched 1 and 2 on Netflix but can't find series 3 anywhere sad

Series 3 has been on BBC I Player very recently. It may be on BBC and you could also pick it up in HMV on special offer.
You can watch Series 4 without Series 3 as Series 3 wrapped up a lot of things.

Yes you can. And you must watch all the series! Think you really need to watch 2 before you watch 3 though

Argh it's no longer playing on iplayer, only series 4! It's not as easy for me to buy on watch on TV also really hoping I could find it online somewhere...

I read on another LOD thread that Sainsbury's have the box set of the first 3 series if that appeals? However you do it you must watch all 3 previous series at some point, it's beyond excellent.

It's on youtube.

I've only watched 3rd series and the current one
IPlayer had a resume catch-up type thing and the 3rd series

I've started on series 4 and haven't felt I needed to watch previous series, but I certainly want to now grin

Spooky, been rewatching it from Series 1, best police drama on TV.
Last episode of Series 3 - shock

Yes. I haven't seen any of the others.

I am!

bellatrixlestrange124 Mon 17-Apr-17 23:50:03

Grrrr now I just really want to watch series 3!! Wish it was still on iplayer!

Me too! Just been trying to find series 3. Infuriating it's disappeared from iplayer. Apparently it was on Netflix for a day in march but got pulled due to licensing issues.

I've been watching it here:

I suspect Netflix released it too soon. Reckon they will be allowed to put it on once series 4 has finished on the Beeb and has disappeared from iPlayer.

MY DP has just come back from France and was watching Season 3 on Netflix over there so French Netflix seem to have it.

I think you can get round this by watching it on Netflix on Chrome and using the Hola extension to access it like you were viewing from France.

Just tried it and it doesn't like the fact I'm using a proxy although series 3 is definitely available on there...oh well, it was almost a good idea!

Ooo just seen more replies, thanks! Argh I'm so impatient... not sure I can wait until Netflix uploads it!

SpookyPotato Fri 21-Apr-17 13:11:40

Try my link OP, I'm literally watching it now smile

ktel1 Fri 21-Apr-17 15:36:42

No need to wait for Netflix use my link or Spooky's

It's also available to buy on BBC Store. Cost £10.99 though but I was desperate. 😬

bellatrixlestrange124 Fri 21-Apr-17 16:37:11

Are the links good quality and do they have all the episodes? Will have a look later.

Is the BBC store a DVD or can you watch online?


tattychicken Fri 21-Apr-17 16:47:18

BBC store is online, website or app, you can download or stream. Yes whole of Series 3 is available.

bellatrixlestrange124 Fri 21-Apr-17 17:39:02

tattychicken Thanks!! I'll buy this weekend and binge watch on iPad. Feel nervous about watching illegal versions because of my job so will definitely buy online!
