According to the Sunday Times, a new series of Keeping Faith is starting tonight at 9 pm in Welsh on S4C (Un Bore Mercher), and "then on BBC iPlayer".
I've just searched on iPlayer and there is no mention of a new series, so it looks as if the BBC is intent on burying it as they did the first series. Keep an eye out for it!!

After it’s been on S4C it will be on BBC Wales

I got a bit tired of series 1 towards the end, but that is it/is it not him? ending will no doubt have me sucked in again. smile

I can get S4C on my Virgin TV package. Does anyone know if I can get English subtitles?

Thanks for the info Grandma. I loved the first series and watched it twice. I listen to the theme tune from the series by Amy Wadge regularly, it is just wonderful.

Just found out the English version will be on the BBC this summer.

I liked the series but I was sick of Faith lying on her back ‘ruminating’ !! Nearly every episode her or another woman would throw themselves down dramatically and gaze into the distance.
Wore a bit thin come the end.

BTW..when I first read the title of this thread I thought it was referring to ‘Faith’ the tv program with Lynda Bellingham!
That was quite good back in the day😊

So did I , Namsnanny!

Hooray, yes you can get English subtitles.
No lying on her back in the first episode!!!

Namsnanny Sun 12-May-19 23:01:03

Pittcity…..Thanks I can relax now!! smile

It's on iplayer under S4C (in case you haven't found it yet).

Gonegirl Mon 10-Jun-19 17:14:00

shock Oh, but if I watch it now it won't be the same in the summer. What to do?

Luckylegs Mon 10-Jun-19 19:06:31

I did too, Namsnanny. I loved that programme, particularly the theme tune. Do you remember it? “The World is what you make it mm mm”!

NanKate Mon 10-Jun-19 19:49:25

If you have Alexa you can ask for the theme music of Keeping Faith by Amy Wadge Luckylegs. I often listen as the music was just beautiful.

I'm not fussed on it myself, but it's better in Welsh.

It's weird seeing Welsh-speaking actors who would normally speak to one another in Welsh, speaking English! Unnatural.

Same with Hinterland.

I think Eve Myles was great in the role. I heard her speak about it last year at Hay Festival. She learned Welsh for the series (although born in Wales, she didn’t speak Welsh); she’s very driven.

Just watched the last episode of series 2 with subtitles. I didn't enjoy it as much as the first series. No spoilers.....
