Call the Midwife
Antiques Road Trip (or the celebrity version)
Homes Under the Hammer (but I can't watch more than a few)
wildlife documentaries
anything with Lucy Worsley or Alice Roberts in it

There are more but I can't remember what they are just now.

Couldn’t agree more about Malory Towers. That plus a cup of tea makes the world seem a much better, calmer place.

I'm sad it's ended 😢
It was so beautifully shot, all golden sunshine halcyon days, the scenery was gorgeous. The school was almost just how I imagined it as a child, haven't felt like that since the first Harry Potter film came out!

And without Enid Blyton's inherent prejudices - it was just perfect!

True comfort TV - the mallory towers adaptation on BBC. I'm loving it, it's reminding me of my childhood. It's such a good adaptation many elements of the books but updated appropriately and believably for a modern audience.

I just started rewatching The Office (UK)..

The first series has talking heads before each ep and Matthew Perry was saying how he sometimes just puts it on in the background because he finds it so comforting - and isn't that weird! Not sure if he was being serious or not because in some ways it IS werid but I think it's something we all do from time to time!
