I love it. It gets more and more ludicrous each series but I can't tear myself away from it.

Very much enjoyed them all being air accident investigators whilst the actual investigator stood there nodding along hmm

I cant watch it. Boss’ wife is pretty much top of the tree pathologist and says its less than 1% accurate

Whitegrenache Tue 07-Jan-20 22:16:27

I enjoy it but the absurdity of the inaccuracies drives me mental

Wonder if they will pull tonights episode, given the storyline and last nights plane crash?

Love it!

We love a bit of Violent Shitness in our house. Marvellously silly

GertiMJN Wed 08-Jan-20 17:07:49

I used to really enjoy it, but the storylines and general ridiculouness infuriates me! However I will no doubt watch this series chuntering away ....grin

I do love Emilia Fox but not sure about the hair colour!? Think it ages her.

SinisterBumFacedCat Wed 08-Jan-20 17:13:34

I love it but it will get slated on here.

EntirelyAnonymised Wed 08-Jan-20 17:28:24

Yes, the hair is an odd shade.

Of course it isn’t accurate. Most programmes involving lawyers aren’t always accurate either. Or women giving birth. It’s tv. It’s pretty rubbish but I love it. grin

I’ve never watched anything more depressing in my whole entire life.
Not even drooling over Jack helps.

Noeuf Wed 08-Jan-20 22:20:31

How did he get into the blokes phone?

Noeuf Wed 08-Jan-20 22:20:57

Ewwww why would you drool over Jack?

Pipandmum Wed 08-Jan-20 22:21:16

Gave up on this last series.

They never seem to have passcodes on their mobiles or laptops in these programmes.

Noeuf Wed 08-Jan-20 22:33:44

Why didn't the mum tell the police her kid was back so they could look for him?

Some SPOILERS (but you shouldnt read threads on programmes you haven't watched yet). That was better than usual. My superficial husband was lamenting Amelia Fox's hair colour change but I didn't think it changed her that much although I stopped fancying Viggo M once he didn't look like Aragorn so am probably just as bad.
At first I thought they were going with a standard BBC baddie group of "far right extremists" but the eventual villain was a more interesting and brave (for the BBC) move

Maybe I missed something as I was getting sleepy, but I couldn't work out what was supposed to be going on with the tedious American boyfriend. Any ideas?

EntirelyAnonymised Thu 09-Jan-20 08:50:42

@Equanimitas, he was being weird because supposed to be on the plane hmm. The American ambassador guy who died in the crash had asked EF’s annoying bf (who was an old friend and diplomatic colleague) to go along/do the job in his place (I forget which) and he declined.

WineOrGinOrBoth Thu 09-Jan-20 14:59:44

Agree the American boyfriend is tedious. And she keeps taking personal calls at work.

Mother87 Thu 09-Jan-20 15:24:09

Thought the dead pilot still sitting in the cockpit was particlarly goryshock

Noeuf Thu 09-Jan-20 16:32:27

Didn't the American boyf get kidnapped once?
