Month: March 2024

  • Spring Forward

    Dangerfield was as busy as ever although he seemed to spend little time in his practice and was having a difficult time with his son too. The main theme was a woman who alleged having been raped but would not allow the police doctor to examine her. Doubtless, all will be revealed in the next…

  • Restful Saturday

    A gripping episode of Line of Duty ended in a knife-edge situation. It would seem that the powers of darkness have their tentacles at all levels and are determined to cover every aspect of their misdeeds. I watched intellectual stuff on YouTube but fell asleep. I woke at three and went for a wander with…

  • Martin Shaw, as Judge John Deed, had to ditch one of his former lovers, Lady Rochester, when he discovers she’s deep into a massive fraud which he’s been too gullible to detect. The main theme is three siblings who are accused of murdering or attempting to murder their parents. They’re all pretty unpleasant especially the…

  • Stupidly Warm

    A bank robbery was the main theme of Endeavour. Thursday received a gunshot wound during a previous episode and some of the bullet remained in his lung. His cough gradually got worse and he finally admitted the doctor had given him three weeks to live. Morse and Thursday’s daughter found themselves participating in the bank…

  • Hottest Day

    I watched the second episode of This Is Going To Hurt but gave up before the end which I’m advised is a shame as it’s worth continuing with. I’ll give it another go. I saw the final episode of season three of Unforgotten when they finally get their man who eventually gives up other information…

  • Tuesday

    The evening was spent on iPlayer watching Hidden Assets which shows potential. Following that was This Is Going To Hurt, a hospital comedy set in a maternity ward with a young doctor. It also shows potential. Lastly, a load of shorts on YouTube and then bed. I went for a wander around three and woke…

  • Independence Day

    I watched Frost who was supposed to be going on holiday. The combination of a car accident which debilitated some senior police officers and the abduction and murder of two young boys meant he was needed. It was only nearer the end that I remembered who the perpetrator was. I watched interesting videos on YouTube…

  • Zondag

    The second part of a multiple murder in Oxford provided my evening entertainment. The culprit was eventually apprehended only after attempting to stab DI Hathaway in the neck with a lethal injection. Fortunately, he was wearing a neck collar following a recent rear-end shunt. I messed around on YouTube until bedtime. The night seemed a…

  • Σάββατο

    My evening entertainment was provided by the operatives of MI5 as they thwarted a potential assassination whilst intercepting some deadly nerve gas intended to cause chaos in Nigeria. Some longer YouTube videos followed of a less intensive nature after the excitement of Spooks. With only a week until the clocks go forward and the lovely…

  • Battery Problems

    Martin Shaw was the baddie and David Suchet his friend and downfall. To be honest, I’d didn’t really find Shaw convincing as Sir Charles, the famous actor. I fell asleep after Poirot and woke up in time to go to bed. Luis and Oskar had a disagreement about something so I told them to shut…

  • jeudi

    The first episode of the second series of Vigil was exciting but I’m not going to binge and consume mindfully. I watched some YouTube before retiring to my boudoir and, as a result, I ordered a replacement for my ailing Apple Watch. This should arrive in the fullness of time via ACS, my go-to carrier.…

  • Mittwoch

    Auntie Hetty was investigating why finalists in a singing contest were being systematically knocked out of the running before even the final began. She was delighted to present a Poirot-style exposé by having the suspects in the same room to disclose the culprit. All good, harmless Yorkshire fun. I checked the weather before leaving my…

  • Wreckage

    The GraceChurch detectives were investigating the cause of death of a young woman who’d ‘fallen’ from the college roof to discover she’d been stabbed before being shoved to her death. There were several candidates with a motive however it was through clever deduction the true culprit was apprehended. I was well ahead of the alarm…

  • Kathara Deftera

    Luther finally managed to catch the serial murder and his accomplice. Additionally polishing off some others including Alice who is now finally and terminally dead. It’s the end of the series so resurrection is not on the cards. Luther has many difficult questions yet to answer as his methods are anything but conventional and there…

  • Relaxing Sunday

    I finally got to bed after midnight having toured the camping and looked at the entrance camera long enough. The five families didn’t show and I received no call from them but that’s hardly surprising as they booked through Georgia and only called me once. I finally heard the alarm and got up to take…

  • Holiday Weekend

    Perry Mason and his team solved a complicated murder. As usual, everything was revealed in court at the end. I grazed YouTube for the remainder of the evening before retiring to my boudoir. Maya was trying to convince me it was time to get up and go for a walk at 03:00. I persuaded her…

  • 21 Years Ago

    Another night in court, not with Perry Mason but Judge John Deed. He was dealing with a fragile youth accused of murdering a young girl. He’d effectively been set up to take the fall. Deed was contacted by his policeman friend to look into corruption involving the legal profession including a couple of judges. His…

  • Shower

    An evening in Yorkshire with the constables trying to discover who is systematically casing and robbing houses for things of value. An American flogging contraband bourbon and leather jackets. The pub finding ways to save itself after a rent rise and the lord of the manor discharging staff and flogging the family silver. What more…

  • Tiger, Tiger…

    Thursday and Morse struggled with two sets of murders which they thought were connected. Thursday lost it with the perpetrator to one, who conveniently confessed after. There was a tiger, an indolent, dysfunctional titled family and a guy who seemed to have a South African accent. The tiger, which was supposed to have been put…

  • It’s becoming difficult for the team of officers dealing with the murder in Unforgotten. It seems that all of the suspects have an alibi, no motive or are dead. I’m sure they will get their man in the end. I went to bed quite early as it was windy and I was nearly falling asleep.…

  • Barely A Sound

    It was a busy evening with a visit to an off-grid sheep shack built to a high standard with reused materials, than a trip on the canals with a day in the life of the coal boat. This is a pair of old working boats from the 1930’s restored to fine operating condition complete with…

  • Merely A Trickle

    Frost was on the warpath at a campus where a student was pushed down some stairs. This was secondary to the death of an Asian woman murdered for £85 after a raid on their sub-post office and confectionary business. Two well known local lads were in the frame but proving it was the problem. The…

  • Spooks were all at sea on a hijacked container ship heading towards UK as a ruse to cover the main objective which was to blow up the Houses Of Parliament. Now, where have I heard that one before? I then watched a Tiny House construction video where a couple were building their house in the…

  • Slightly Damp

    John Deed was struggling against all comers to get a just outcome for the family of a young girl raped and then murdered, supposedly by the driver of a foreign dignitary from a rich Arab state. The UK Government has a vested interest to obtain a valuable aeronautics order so behind-the-scenes activities attempted to ensure…

  • Good News!

    For a change, I didn’t go with BritBox but to the USA for some time with Detective Bosch whose daughter is temping at another police station providing helpful information for an ongoing investigation. After Bosch, I went back to YouTube where I looked at Magic Roundabouts of the automotive kind, a guy and his dog…

  • Installation

    Lewis and Hathaway were on the case of a clairvoyant murdered in his office followed by his assistant. It’s a two-part story so I may watch the other part this evening. I watched a series of short items on YouTube but fell asleep as I could see from my history. I would have liked to…

  • An exciting evening saving the world with Joe 90 after a visit to Slade prison where the theme was boxing. YouTube entertained me for the rest of the evening with some motorway anomalies and a trip to Fort William from Euston. I have travelled from Euston to Inverness and beyond back in the Ice Age…

  • Smouldering Remains

    Hercule was in Syria solving the complicated murder of an unpleasant American woman. Her family were queuing up to dispose of her so it was just a question of finding the perpetrator. It was a cooler night which caused me to reach for an extra blanket but the morning was clear, starry and moonlit. I…

  • Tidying

    I wanted to watch the SAS Rogue Heroes but discovered I’d seen the last of the first season. Keeping with the war theme I watched an enlightening dramatisation of the story of the first African negro to get a commission in the British Army. He was an NCO but recommended for officer training in 1917.…

  • Събота

    The Crash Detectives were investigating an incident where two vehicles collided head-on, one on the wrong side of the road. The detectives discovered, by various means, that the driver of the offending vehicle had been drinking and taking drugs for three days prior to the event and was still twice the legal amount to drive…

  • Παρασκευή

    Hetty Wainthropp was on her own as a wandering artist investigating poison pen letters which seemed to go to newcomers to the village as well as those born there. She eventually found the culprit, the former village bobby who’d taken it upon himself to keep the populous under control. YouTube until I fell asleep! I…
