    Murder mystery and my family , its on in the mornings BBC1. True cases of people convicted for murder , but did they really do it and were they guilty? Two barristers look at the case with the family.

    Some incredibly sad stories and some unbeliveable miscarriages of justice.

    Has anyone seen After life with Ricky Gervais? Only on Netflix and there’s six episodes, absolutely brilliant . Very poignant ( choked me quite a bit ) but other parts so very funny. We haven’t got Netflix but we were staying in a cottage for a few days and they had it so we gave it a go after my son telling me about it. Can honestly say it’s one of the best things I’ve ever watched.

    Yes Ive watched it , comparing notes with my son who was watching it in Ireland.. He said s**t happens and this shows how it happens to everyone.. I prefer my neighbours expression... Every house bears its own cross..

    It was funny , sad , deep , thought provoking and naughty but I really liked it.

    I watched it a couple of times but found it very upsetting thinking of the people who were unjustly imprisoned or hanged:(

    Cant wait for tomorrow . LOD is brilliant.
    Killing Eve too. A weirdly strange programme , gruesome and funny at the same time.

    Totally agree: Killing Eve was funny, but at the same time rather disturbing (especially when I found myself warming to a psychopath:eek:).
    It was also rather refreshing that they chose female roles for both the detective and the killer, which made a change as in a lot of detective programmes the female role usually ends up being the corpse!
    All set for Line of Duty tomorrow:)

    I watch reruns of Friends too! I’ve watched all of those about 100 times too :D:oops:
    I know :( apparently there aren’t as many episodes in the last season as they would have liked because Jim Parsons didn’t wan to do more as he was busy with other work! So blame Sheldon for it bing cut short!

    I recorded and am now watching Baptiste. Very good except the accents most of the 'Dutch' actors are Belgian and the Vlaamse accent is hard to listen to.

    With the nights drawing in, Covid putting pay to a social life, and family board games quickly losing their appeal, suggestions would be most welcome:)

    I read a lot of crime fiction, many and various authors, the one I'm reading at the moment is Mourning in Malmo by Torquil Macleod. He has set a series in Malmo southern Sweden though he is British. A very enjoyable read as are his previous ones.

    I'm reading Anti-Social: The Secret Diary of an Anti-Social Behaviour Officer by Nick Pettigrew, which is his memoir. It's funny - he's also a stand-up comedian - but also very sad, given that he's dealing with those on the fringes of society, in social housing, where drugs, crime, mental health issues and violence are rife.

    I have been reading the subtle knife to remind my self of the plot before his dark matriels returns. On the BBC on the 8th of november.

    Anyone watch his dark matriels last year?

    I usually have several books on the go, one of which would be a thriller, one other that would be educational. Currently "Mao's Great Famine", then a thriller set in the Arctic which is telling me a lot about the Inuit way of life as background, and Mark Twain's "The Innocents Abroad".

    We don't have a television, nor any plans to get one.

    I bought Northern Lights not realising it was a children’s book. Ended up reading them all, but can’t really remember them very well. I do remember the daemons and would like to imagine mine as a wolf or cloud leopard, but fear it would more likely be something like a pigeon:rolleyes::)

    @Hemlock, you’ve made me feel rather lowbrow;)

    I loved the books and loved the tv adaption, have you seen the BBC adaptation of his dark matriels?

    I'd like mine to be a bernese mountain dog or a bear
