    I really enjoyed the DC5 documentary. They were a great band. I had a crush on Mike Smith, the lead singer. LOL

    Thank heavens for Bletchley Circle. It premiered tonight on my local station. Sunday has become such a wasteland for me, it is nice to have something to look forward to.

    Agreed. British fans of the show have mounted a petition campaign to try to save the show; we can only hope that they are successful.

    For parents and kids at heart, two new episodes from Season 17 of Arthur will air Monday and Tuesday next week.

  10. ^ :cheer: for new Lewis, I knew they couldn't stay away.

    :cheer: for the Bill Nighy drama. I remember really liking Page Eight but don't remember a lot of details -- I hope they repeat it before they show the new ones.

    Not quite so sure about Death Comes to Pemberley. The book was somewhat of a disappointment to me, but it might make good fodder for TV. And I really like Anna Maxwell Martin, she'll make a great Elizabeth. Matthew Rhys could be great as Darcy too, he's definitely got the right look about him.

    Miss Marple -- meh. Julia McKenzie is ok, but if it isn't Joan Hickson, it isn't Marple imo.

    Any folks have fond memories of Brideshead Revisited and Jewel in the Crown?

    I love Jewel In The Crown. I have the DVDs- and still re-watch it from time to time. I haven't ever seen Brideshead, but I also have that. It's on my list.

    Loved both. Discovered Charles Dance in Jewel in the Crown One of the reasons I watched Brideshead was because of Anthony Andrews.

    The older version of Brideshead is terrific. The newer shorter version doesn't quite measure up.

    I was not aware of a newer, shorter version. I don't intend to watch it. Yup, nothing like Andrews & Irons in their prime.
