Me too! We're having a snow day today so I will have to watch it later as I'm stuck with CBeebies for now. hmm

MrsJayy Wed 28-Feb-18 14:58:16

I have been enjoying this as well, it’s silly & gentle the locations are so pretty it’s like ‘Midsomer light’

I was surprised it was on in the afternoons rather than a more primetime slot. It's very good, I really enjoyed it.

MrsJayy Wed 28-Feb-18 17:24:13

I think they have the right amount of silly to realisim it is a good replacement for father Brown I bloody love F.Brown

Mrsmadevans Wed 28-Feb-18 17:57:42

Ahhh so glad there are others who love it too, we love F.Brown here too Mrs Jay

Oh no. Forgot this was starting. I might have to have a catch up.

DS(12) loves Father Brown too. He makes me record it so we can watch it before he goes to bed. I'll be gutted when he deems himself too grown up for that. sad

I was thinking today how much I enjoyed this. Its even better as its filmed around the area I grew up and I recognise a good few places.

I'm still fuming that they cancelled The Coroner.... That was great!!

Mrsmadevans Wed 28-Feb-18 20:40:08

Ohhh nooo have they cancelled the coroner? Bgr! I have only just started watching it and liked it .

Have binge watched all 3 episodes. Yesterday's was the best. Thought Tuesday's was a little far fetched!

Did not realise they had cancelled the coroner 84 I’m gutted too, loved that programme, why do they cancel really good stuff yet crap in the attic etc runs for years and years, guess they are cheap to make. Will have to make do with the re runs sad

Just catching up on today's episode. I love Sebastian.

Woofygoldberg Thu 01-Mar-18 21:30:24

I've found my people- it is such easy watching. Every cliche possible but I don't care, nice setting, entertaining without being too challenging. Surprised it's not on a Sunday tea time.

DP is away, so sofa dinner for one and BBC iPlayer.

BettyBooJustDoinTheDoo Thu 01-Mar-18 21:36:05

Daytime tv is my guilty pleasure! Actually scrap the guilty bit, I love it and I’m not even sorry!

MrsJayy Thu 01-Mar-18 21:57:18

I love Sebastian too it is a great cast Jo joyner is a great comedic actress

Enjoying it so far.
Really loved The Coroner, why has it been cancelled??

84CharingCrossRoad Fri 02-Mar-18 11:24:02

Not sure why it was cancelled. Just said on the wiki page that the BBC decided not to commission another series....

84CharingCrossRoad Fri 02-Mar-18 11:36:57

I tell you what I adore :-
It was cancelled a couple of years ago and I was gutted but 7 Network bought the rights and more are being made!!

FlaviaAlbia Fri 02-Mar-18 11:40:37

Oh, must look that one up 84Charing

What the coroner like for gore? I'm squeamish...

numbereightyone Fri 02-Mar-18 11:41:26

I am really liking Shakespeare and Hathaway.

84CharingCrossRoad Fri 02-Mar-18 11:51:33

Flavia Re The Coroner.... No gore.....
Dr Blake is played by Craig McClachlan aka Henry from Neighbours. Also Nadine Garner from Home and Away is in it too....

FlaviaAlbia Fri 02-Mar-18 12:10:31

Oh good, I'll have to watch it before it goes off iplayer then, thanks!

Cherrypie32 Fri 02-Mar-18 14:26:28

I should imagine they only have a certain budget for daytime drama and they are doing this instead of the Coroner. They’re not dissimilar in feel. I quite like it but snow days have scuppered my viewing.
