Endeavour (about Morse's early days in Oxford CID).

ETA: I can't believe I forgot about The Bletchley Circle! It was recently announced that there would be a second season, which I'm extatic about.

I've been watching all the Agatha Christie movies on Netflix. It's been ages since I've read any of the books or watched the movies. I wish they had Death on the Nile. There is a Russian version of And Then There Were None, but the DVD is $40. It was filmed at a really cool castle on a rock in Ukraine (I think).

I'm trying to decide if I want to reread the PD James Dagliesh books or watch the series. When Devices and Desires came out my poor dad went to try to get that autographed as a birthday present but the line was around the block by the time he got off work, so he cut the line to sneak into the store and begged one of the staffers there and ended up getting me a book with a personalized Happy Birthday message from PD James saying she loves her young mystery fans.

I've watched most of the BBC Wallander. I had to take a break to avoid hanging myself.

I second A Touch of Frost and Inspector Morse :)

I also watched The Fall recently (set in Northern Ireland), and although I'm a big Gillian Simpson fan, I felt uncomfortable with the level of explicit and graphic extreme violence against women shown.

And then it ended an The Politician's Husband started up 3 days later! best teevee week of my life.

Apparently Broadchurch got bought by BBC America, so hopefully it'll get over there some time soon! (Seriously, it is AWESOME.)

I can't wait for Luther! There aren't a lot of male actors I get all squishy over but Idris Elba is like to of the list. With David Tennant.

I really enjoyed The Fall too.

What about Scott & Bailey? Nice to see two women leads.

And if you like a bit of retro I love Randall & Hopkirk (deceased) from the late 1960's (not the Reeves & Mortimer remake) about two private detectives. One died but he helps his partner solve crimes as a ghost.

Finished watching Top of the Lake. I stuck with it because I desperately wanted it to get better and be this deep, entralling story that would come full circle. But alas, it never did for me. I really really HATED the Holly Hunter blind-sage thing. it was flat out stupid, imo. I thought Elisabeth Moss was very good (although her accent seemed very inconsistent). The best thing by far was the landscape, which was just amazingly beautiful.

On to The Fall next. excited to see that.

I've been loving many of the British mysteries available on Netflix and feel that I am becoming quite the Britophile. I love many that have already been discussed here, and recently finished The Fall which was so creepy! At times I felt like it was going too far into the killers head and it really grossed me out, but I ended up getting hooked. I can't wait for the new season and am beyond thrilled that there will be a third season of Luther!!! I highly recommend Prime Suspect which has been one of my all time favorite crime series to date.

Prime Suspect is one of my favorite shows ever.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who disliked The Top of the Lake. I couldn't get into it and felt like I should since it got such good reviews.

It's not exactly a mystery but I really liked The Hour. I love Ben Whisaw.

Broadchurch is on BBC America now! Episode 3 was just on, I believe. We don't get BBCA anymore since we switched to Verizon Fios, but I bought a season pass on Amazon. It's GOOD! we watched all 3 eps that have been on so far last night. I gotta say Tennant is really good at being a cranky mustard and I am so loving Olivia Coleman (who I can help but refer to as Soph). Good stuff!

Bumping this because I just finished - and loved - Broadchurch and want something along those lines to watch. Not sure I want to get into Top of the Lake but maybe I'll give The Fall a try.

I would like to recommend WhiteChapel. It is on Hulu.
It is an odd, awkward and dark series.

I just started watching this BBC Wales show called 'Hinterland' and I am hooked already. It's new in English (they filmed it both in Welsh and in English and the Welsh version aired last year apparently)- I found out about it via reading the comments (sometimes it pays to read the comments!) on the latest Guardian blog about series 2 of Swedish/Danish show 'The Bridge' (also AMAZING. Love.) For UK people (and poopiebitch, the wee stealer) with access to iplayer the first 90min episode is available now. It has also already been bought for a Scandinavian remake by the makers of The Killing.

Oh! And I read somewhere ages ago that Broadchurch is being remade in America with David Tennant?
