Oh no, I just discovered The Fall ran for 2 seasons/series for a total of 11 episodes, but Netflix has only the first series/season of 5 episodes. So I wont be able to finish the story. Had I known that before I wouldn't have started. By the time they get the last half I'll have forgotten everything.

BTW this series lead is one cold fish, and I don't mean the serial killer. I hope they intended that I don't like the lead investigator. She may be a good cop, but she's a lousy person.

The Fall is awesome. Somber, but keeps you guessing. I call it a 'dark' drama. The lead gal is the one who played in the X-files series. Much different part here. She's good at it. Her 'character' is part of the plot as you will see as it goes along. Get ready for creepy feelings on all fronts.

I watched the first episode of X Files, the very first time it aired, and than forgot it was on the next week, so thats how much that series impressed me. She plays the part well, I just don't like the character's personality. Finished series one. Not sure which series I'll do next. Have to see if Netflix has all of any. They have 3 series of "Luther" but apparently there's more to follow in 2015. Happy Valley apparently going to have another series this year.

Kind of an abrupt ending.

Supposedly Gillian Anderson wants a third season. What they would do with it I don't know. Just like I don't know what a second season of Broadchurch would be about, unless its the trial.

Definitely the trial! Oh so interesting. Watching on BBC version now. Whatever you thought you knew, forget it. All is changing.

I've been enjoying many of the British mysteries on Netflix as well. The majority of them are outstanding, with well developed plots and characters. Regarding Broadchurch,I could still see a sequel involving both key characters and an entirely new case or as suggested something developing from the trial. Some of my other favorites George Gently,Endeavour,Bletchley Circle,Waking the Dead,The Fall,Ripper Street.Foyle's War. This is a great way to spend a long cold winter.

So the British Broadchurch series 2 is airing on BBC Canada. I missed most of it, so hopefully there will be reruns.
Anyone seen Black Mirror yet? 2 seasons of 3 episodes each, plus 2014 Xmas special. I really liked it. Very similar to the old Twilight Zone shows, but updated with current and future technologies and social media aspects. I particularly liked the White Bear episode.

I'll checkout Black Mirror that sounds good colpet. I also would recommend The Fall. I thought it was very good.


It's nice to be important but it is much more important to be nice.

Whats hidden supposedly made the author of the books the series was based on mad and they had to make up their own plots later on.

Well, I certainly didn't know that laugh

Can you get the BBC series "New Tricks" ?? [Or maybe you've already seen it ??]

I'm watching repeats of the first two or three years right now .... The early ones with the original cast :
Alun Armstrong, James Bolam, Amanda Redman and Dennis Waterman.

And I'm very much enjoying it thumbsup

Once the original cast left though, it went definitely off the boil (for me, anyway) and I stopped watching.

Adding to the list of BBC detective series, I just watched Shetland season 2 all 6 episodes. Closer to Hinterland but not as dark. Good twists.

No, I watched it on BBC Canada.
It is unfortunate that availability of these shows is hit and miss. I wanted to watch Black Mirror which was widely advertized on Netflix. But Canadian Netflix is different than the U.S. one, and it wasn't on there. II have access to PBS channels, but I can't watch the behind the scenes videos on the website. I use both BBC Canada TV channel (Shetland, Broadchurch), but use BBC iPlayer for most older shows. I adore the UK version of Antiques Roadshow, but only get to see half hour cut back versions airing on PBS, and even then they are from 2011.
It looks like there are soon going to be different streaming 'channels' all for a monthly fee, each showing one or two shows I would like to watch. We've got 2 new ones just out - SHOMI, and CraveTV. Between those, Netflix, BBC iPlayer and Amazon, watching my favorite shows will be getting expensive.

I'm watching most shows on Netflix, but Grimm on NBC. Had Doctor Who on Amazon but that gets too expensive.
