    Yes Morse, Lewis and Dalziel and Pascoe are all good.

    Don't watch Death In Paradise, but it must be popular it's in its 5th series I think!

    Endeavour ... about the young Morse ... is good too.
    Anyone watch that?

    James Nesbit is a great actor and has appeared in some excellent series... I'm thinking of Cold Feet for instance ...

    I thought James Nesbitt was very good in that series 'The missing'...Haven't seen any of his other stuff though.

    Oh yes I forgot "Endeavour". They are the sort of carefully crafted TV that bears watching more than once, even if you remember whodunnit the detail is excellent. Some nice props too, vintage vehicles, furniture and music. They are getting over-repeated now though, like CSI/Law And Order.

    Death In Paradise is typical BBC, they start with something quirky and original then gradually dumb it down and replace the characters with actors/actresses who are "celebrities".

    Well Saturday night BBC 4 viewing is now 'Trapped'


    and as Mrs P says ...

    Well, that was a brilliant start. This is a high quality crime drama that has the potential to develop into a really great series. The first episode set up the different strands of the narrative very nicely: a mysterious fire, the ferry’s arrival, the discovery of the body and the complex personal life of police chief Andri. The actors are great, the writing is crisp with occasional wry humour, and the cinematography is excellent, making the most of the dramatic Icelandic landscape and weather. Wrap up warm when watching, because it’s almost impossible not to feel chilly with that blizzard swirling around.

    Does anyone here watch 'The Jump' ?
    It seems it's always in the news with the celebrities breaking bones - ending up in hospital - not good.

    Why do it ?

    Answers on a postcard please ?

    They do it cos they get a free holiday and wads of cash ! The show is dire, the celebrities Z list ! I am enjoying Lucky Man though. However, I do get a bit frustrated with James Nesbit's eyebrows !! Are they real ?

    Agree the show is dire ... I read there was yet another accident ... think the TV company should pull the plug on this show - don't know how many viewers it attracts!

    Now I do watch The Voice ...  Embarassed

    Yes, I thought that too ...

    You also never know, later in life, the consequences of some of these falls, accidents.

    Do they really need the money?

    Haven't watched it, but if infamous famous people are getting hurt i may have to have a look Smile

    don't like the voice or programmes like that because of the talking in between, i do however like to watch the voice on youtube, edited down to just the singing, no taking/pitching and its world wide, for example

    What we need is a game on TV for Z list celebs like Running Man. Ten start, each week one meets a very grizzly end, last one alive picks up 10 million quid. The viewing figures would be stratospheric.

    Ant and Dec would be the first two on my Z list.

    Come on folks who would be on your list for the Running Man Gig?

    My first apart from the above would be Simon Cowell and Jeremy Kyle.

    Agree. Another one for my Running Man Game Bruce Forsyth, he should have been pensioned off 25 years ago. What's the betting when he croaks they embalm him and wheel him on 'a la' Hannibal Lecter for the Christmas Grand Finale. Nice to smell ya, to smell ya not! affraid

    Yeah I know mate. I find fishing films so relaxing, especially the Pullen due of father and son, and old Chris Yates type stuff. Time for some un-winding after a tough day on twitter winding LCHF antis up.
