Very clever

I watch a lot of Brit TV in the USA
Inspector Frost, Midsomer murders, lots of old stuff too, fools and horses, AYBS etc..

Also have Eastenders Corrie, Emerdale
(don't watch soaps)

Using these apps
Britbox, Acorn+ Netflix
All commercial free too
Total cost, about $15 a month

All the TV I need
I don't have cable, cut the cord 5 years

USA TV total BS
. As for Vera, couldn't get into that show

Death in Paradise is back this week :D
Set on the Caribbean island of Saint Marie - without question it must be the most dangerous place on earth ?.
Only a few locals live on the island, yet each week there is a murder - who in their right mind would book a holiday there ?.

I'm surprised people are still allowed to travel there - the 'Home Office' should send out a travel warning....
A week in Syria would be less dangerous...….

New series of Vera starts tonight 8pm - bit of a dilemma however, as the bbc (at the same time) has a new series of “call the midwife” - thank god for sky+ :-)

Vera coming back is excellent news, what more can you ask for on a Sunday night in January, might even treat myself to a bowl 🍲 of cabbage whilst watching it!

Probably twinned with Midsomer and has Holby City as the nearest A&E!

I reckon London is still more dangerous. 2 or 3 stabbings a week and now they reckon that the underground air is polluted (can’t be much worse than than the old days when you had black bogies for days :shock:)

I reckon Oxford to be the murder capital of the world and stay away from small villages in Yorkshire where insurance premiums must be sky high

Gail Tilsley (or whatever her name is now) in Corrie is the one that gets me. Her first husband was stabbed to death. When she married Martin Platt she was stalked by a deranged nurse that her hubby worked with. She then married a serial killer whilst fretting about her daughter becoming a 12 year old mother......and does she display the slightest sign of PTSD ? No! It's as if it's all the most normal thing in the world !! Mind you; if you live in a northern street with a thriving pub and corner shop your hold on reality must be fogged

Plus the one who plays gayle’s mum is about 6 years older than her in real life, strange!

Emmerdale is another dangerous place to live and you certainly wouldn't want to buy Home Farm as every family that's lived there has been decimated.

Emmerdale even had a plane crash there some years ago

Haven't been there for years, not since some woman shouted at me to "Get outta her pub"
