I liked the fact that it was slow moving. It gave time for tension to build and for several possibilities to be suggested as to what might be at the heart of the mysterious goings on. I wouldn't say...

I thought it was really good and very atmospheric. I presume the rather vague woman in the Old Folks' Home knows something or senses something and will have a bigger role to play in coming...

I loved the first few series of this but I do think it had long passed its 'best before' date by the time the plug was pulled.

Yes I did read what you said about the Killing. And no I wasn't irate. Just voicing the opinion that there's room for slow moving as well as fast actioned drama on television and dismissing a series...

I wasn't sure whether the point of that scene was to contrast between her happy family life and Tony's bereft one, or to let us know that her partner was female. The kiss was kind of in between a...

It seems to be you who is 'irate' at people disagreeing with the view that The Missing is 'boring' and drawn out, and who are voicing the opinion that too many viewers nowadays seem to dismiss any...

This was the first night I didn't agree with the judges. I thought Kelly's room was a mish mash of styles and colours with no coherent look at all. And the padded wardrobes, which looked lovely in...

I liked Honor's room apart from the sheepskin on the floor and the armchair. That would have definitely gone as soon as the cameras stopped rolling if it was my room.
I love colour and vintage stuff...

The mother came across as quite dislikeable last night. But I suppose she could be putting up a shield of cold detachment to protect herself from going absolutely mad with grief and terror. The...

I thought he got off because Anna Marple got on the case when she realised that Vera's breath being a strange green colour meant that she had taken some kind of poisonous substance (very like the...

Well, lots of people on this thread have also said that.

Personally I don't think they'd work together at all. I agree that Tom has brought out a better side of Mary than we usually see. But I don't...

It doesn't always reflect viewers' reaction, I agree. But in the case of Miranda and Outnumbered the critical acclaim was matched by viewing figures and praise and also by award nominations. So...

I agree. But I meant the storyline itself hasn't been well developed and hasn't really fitted in to the series overall. As a result it's become an irritant for viewers as opposed to something that...

One thing I don't understand is Amanda's engagement to Guy. She doesn't love him and it was obvious in the flashback scene in the gallery last night that she wasn't one of those girls who just wanted...

I sometimes get the impression that JF was just making this storyline up as he went along, with no real idea of where it was going. It has been choppy and clumsy from the start with no coherent flow...

I agree. The whole storyline has been ridiculous and seems to have had little or no thought put into it. The most unbelievable part for me was Anna being pushed into an identity parade with no...

Totally agree with this. I can understand people not personally liking programmes like Miranda or Outnumbered, but dismissing them as 'crap' when they won critical acclaim is a bit silly.

I see Jessica Raine from Call the Midwife has been cast as Tuppence in N or M. Ridiculous mis-casting. Tuppence was meant to be in her 40s in that book, with two grown up children.
