He is indeed very talented. Julian Alexander Kitchener-Fellows, Baron Fellows of West Stafford, that's his actual moniker. He also wrote the screenplay for the Robert Altman film Gosford park.

Yes, I watched Gosford Park and enjoyed that as well. I wish streaming on the BBC website was available here in the US.

I don't know if this show was on the BBC or some other British network but I recently watched a few episodes of Vera, about a older female police detective in northern England and it was very good.

I just discovered Acorn TV - through my Roku box. It has a free trial for the month of August 2012 and carries a pretty good selection of BBC series. "Vera" is next on my list - I'm currently watching Doc Martin, which I LOVE.

Anyone familiar with "Goodnight Sweetheart?" It's my absolute favorite series. I actually ended up ordering a set from the UK and having to buy a special international DVD player to watch them! But it's worth it.

Quite a few PO suggested Sherlock. I quite like it, Jeremy Brett was, to my mind, the only actor who got Sherlock right, until this new series. Benedict Cumberbatch returns in Parade's End - Telegraph

There is going to be an American re-imagining titled Elementary, I already HATE the wardrobe. Seems a Sherlock is just out of rehab (better be for cocaine addiction) and Watson is played by Lucy Liu. meh
However, Jonny Lee Miller is playing Sherlock. He was in Trainspotting (epic) and played a killer on Showtimes Dexter and is quite compelling. Jonny Lee Miller - IMDb

No one has mentioned one of my very favorite (ever) programs: JEKYLL

It's on Netflix streaming now (not Just DVD)

Sherlock is absolutely awesome. It may be relatively old now, but Keeping up Appearances will always have a special place in my heart. So sad to hear about the actor who played Onslow (forgetting his name) dying.

Just finished watching The Palace a TV series in 2008. I found it on Hulu. It's a fictional royal family in modern day Buckingham Palace. My one question is why do British end most sentences with the word, 'yes'. I've noticed it on other modern day shows.

Hi all, bumping up

Its been awhile, I just ordered The Shadow Line

I can't seem to get New Tricks Season 4 without paying an arm & a leg for it.

I seen that Luther 3 is being released next year, such a long wait, sure wish there was a Garrow's Law 4

Its about time the BBCA finally put something decent on the air here instead of Star Trek reruns, Dr Who, they show Luther now & then but I already bought the DVD's for 1 and 2 a way's back.
