Close enough :D

But then it is New Year's Eve so I'll forgive you :D

I really enjoyed the last series, except the onw where the Scottish actress played lead.

So looking forward to this starting. :)

She was dreadful which is a shame as she'd normally rather good

Can't wait for the new series - loved Series 1! (And I have a soft spot for Danny John-Jules after loving Red Dwarf ever since it started!)

Mikey_C 01-01-2013 09:06

Yep Tuesday's evenings are gonna be sunny evenings (At least for the next 8 weeks!) :)

Muggsy 01-01-2013 09:24

Yay!:) Death in Paradise and more Montalbano. Sunshine and murder on cold winter evenings. I couldn't ask for more.

There already was a thread for this. Can they be merged?

Really looking forward to this now. Just the thing to chase away the winter blues. it is getting lots of promotion this time so should get more viewers than series 1. hope the little lizard is in this one.

That was for series 1, it's not unusual is it for separate series to have their own threads?

I've been catching up on the DVDs and love the little lizard just as much as I did when I first watched the programme! Hope he is still in it, too!

Series 2? Hmm. Saw a trailer the other day. Everything looked so familiar that I assumed it was just a repeat.

Pleasant enough lightweight fluff, I guess, but his insistence on wearing ludicrously inappropriate clothing is beginning to irritate.

Lennie 06-01-2013 15:31

I liked this show last year..... its light-hearted and also i like Richard and Camille's interactions - its endearing lol

I'm a big fan of the dark Euro-Crime shows that BBC4 shows on Saturday nights but I also enjoy "cosy" British crime dramas like this, Midsommer Murders and Lewis.

Both types of shows have something to offer and they serve as relief from each other

Too many Euro-Crime shows and you'd get so depressed you'd jump off the Oresund Bridge and too many light and fluffy British shows you'd develop diabetes

Where does "Mentalbaldy" fit in to your analysis, V?

I enjoyed the first series too. His quest for the perfect cup of tea was fun. I will be tuning in this evening.

MissySmith 08-01-2013 11:25

Love this show. Makes me feel nice and warm. I've just been watching Ben Miller interviewed on This Morning. He wears backless shirts and vests made of cool-packs,when filming:D

That one edges towards the "cosy" end of the spectrum as it seems more lighthearted than the likes of The Killing, The Bridge and Wallander.

I mean I can't imagine someone like Catarella working with Sarah Lund or Saga from The Bridge

radioanorak 08-01-2013 13:01

I do hope DI Poole dresses for the climate & dumps the suite
Also what is in the brief case he carries ?
Suggestions on a post card, please

I agree, the obvious over-playing of this is so unnecessary and false.

Anyone who spent as much time in that environment, would have made some effort. The stupidity of it all reminds me of Mr Bean, which I didn't like anyway.
It's a lightweight crime drama in pleasant surroundings which could hold its own without "pantomime elements."

@Doghouse Riley

Then please do us all a favour and don't watch it, I recall just how much you enjoyed the last series

THINKS...

Scene 1, act 1:
Saga, smiling, scratches herself absent mindedly...
Suddenly, the door crashes open.
"Scuse Dottore", exclaims Catarella
"Dottore?", questions Catarella
"Dottore!!!!", exclaims Catarella and faints
Saga, smiling, continues scratching herself absent mindedly...

Was that the Royal "we?"

For cryin' out loud , is it that important to you whether I liked it or not, that makes it worth saying that?

If you thought it the best, or worst programme on TV, do you really think I'd be bothered, either way?
I was actually being reasonably complimentary about it in my post , not that you noticed in your haste to criticise me.

Chill out, "it's just telly."
