PBS is, again, running Dancing on the Edge. Really enjoying it.

Re: British TV shows

I would like to thank everyone for all the replies. I spent most of last night researching all the shows listed. I now have enough series to last a long, long time.

A big thank you to all who responded!

Re: British TV shows

We really enjoyed Broadchurch. It was riveting. I only wish there were more of them.

I loved it also!

And now some good news:

On 12 April 2016, ITV officially announced the casting for the third and final series, with Jodie Whittaker, Andrew Buchan, Arthur Darvill, Carolyn Pickles and Adam Wilson returning. Filming for the third series began in May 2016.

Yea!

How did I let that slip by me.

I found this:

Broadchurch cast: Who's coming back?

David Tennant and Olivia Colman will reunite once more as Hardy and Miller, and they'll be joined by several other characters from the first two series.

Arthur Darvill is back as dependable vicar Paul Coates, along with Carolyn Pickles as newspaper editor Maggie Radcliffe and Adam Wilson as Ellie's son Tom.

Re: British TV shows

For those who are fans of the Comedy SciFi genre there's "Red Dwarf". Seasons 2 through 6 were quite good. Seasons 1 and 7 through 10 not as good.

Very creative. Very funny. Proof that you don't need a big budget to pursue scifi themes.

Re: British TV shows

Sharknado4 premiers Sunday on SyFy. The whole week is shark movies. I love cheesy 'B' sci-fi.

I had a major computer project to work on over the weekend and as I often do, I had the TV on in the background. I ended up watching 10 straight hours of 'B' scifi beginning with 'Supergator vs. Dinocroc' and ending with 'Atomic Shark'. It's funny how most of them manage to get one recognizable star who's in it for a quick payday and actually enjoys the corny scripts, bad CHI, and terrible production values. Michael Madsen, Eric Roberts, David Carradine, Robert Carradine were actual pretty good in their roles.

Little Britain (I mean… “Britain, Britain, Britain…we’ve had running water for over ten years, an underground tunnel that links us to Peru, and we invented the cat!” LOL!)

Absolutely Fabulous (I <3 AbFab so hard!)

The IT Crowd (I <3 Moss!)

Burnistoun (I think the Scottish accents were the real draw…getting all tingly just thinking about it!)

Broadchurch

Being Human

Miranda

I’ve also watched Father Ted and All Creatures Great and Small via osmosis because my husband. Now just to be annoying I say everything is an “ecumenical matter” and when he’s agitated I say he’s gone “cracker dog!”

Re: British TV shows

Just watched the movie "Me Before You". I know, it is a movie, not a TV show, but it is so British.

We have started watching Doc Martin regularly. It seems like TAM, most of the time is spent trying to figure out marital details, eg is the policeman married, divorced, ... Kind of like following threads where details only trickle out.

Love Doc Martin. I missed season 7 (not on Netflix yet) but found it on YouTube. It is rumored they are making season 8, can't wait!
