Seeing as we're all staying in a little lot more, we'd imagine the telly is getting a fair amount of attention. If you want to chat about whatever you're watching while it's on (or the next day) please do check our Telly forum topic and join in if there's already a conversation running. If not, why not start one? There's almost certainly someone else on here who's watching alongside you and would love the opportunity to dissect the plot/suggest whodunnit/debate actor's suitability to role/just want to say they love or hate it. grin

Been watching Nick Stein in Mexico,also Endeavour. Streaming "Friday Night Dinner" Will watch "Grand Designs" tonight.

Library have extended borrowing times to 6 weeks and we can take up to 30 books out, so will be alright there, plus have large library at home.

Hope we get new series of "Last Tango" soon.

I love Repair Shop - the skill of the people is amazing. I'm pleased it is being given an hour at a prime time.
Not sure about tonight's viewing but I do have some "saved" programmes to fall back on if needs be.

Just seen the entire series of Spooks is on iPad, maybe it’s been there for ages, but started watching this when it was about half way through, one of my all time favs, so am very pleased to be able to watch from the start, yay!!😀

I m not waiting for Last Tango like I have it the past I thought this last short series was not very good it feels like theyd run out of steam

Think I'll catch up on Penance tonight.

I watched half of the Cummings thing😬😬😬😬blimey he seems a very dodgy individual. I just hope he’s been sidelined during this crises.

I am enjoying The trouble with Maggie Cole.

Whitewavemark2 Thu 19-Mar-20 15:44:07

Not a lot on I fancy tonight, probably watch a play back or Netflix

One that I can recommend was shown on Tuesday at 10.30 BBC 4 called Roofracks and Hatchbacks - the Family Car. It was a great bit of nostalgia and many of us will relate to experiences of people who share their memories. Look out for a motoring journalist called Zog Ziegler! Good to watch on Saturday evening when there isn't much worth watching (IMO).

BBC I player/categories/archive/a to z has lots of stuff.

Might try Penance, and I see there’s a third series of the Real Marigold Hotel on You Tube.

We're watching The Split and loving it. Watching Neighbours at 10pm. Not OH obviously. He'll be reading H Mantel.

I watched a recording of McDonald and Dodds.
It was just what I needed, daft and lighthearted.
Had the second one to watch tomorrow; when DH asked me something, just as I deleted the wrong one. Arrgh
So will now have to find it on catch up, if it's there.

Carter series 2 on alibi. Comedy detective series in Canada. More for the scenery than the content. Also Offspring, Australian comedy drama. Am on series 2 and 4 more series to go.

CanadianGran Thu 19-Mar-20 22:49:10

I just discovered The Great Pottery Throwdown, and Portrait Painter of the Year on YouTube. What wonderful shows!

I think you have better reality shows than in North America.

I am also catching up on Schitt's Creek and Grace and Frankie.

Fat Gran57. The bambino’s are back very soon. Shalom.

hollysteers Fri 20-Mar-20 01:01:15

First episode of Belgravia and catching up with The Split, looks good, if far fetched. Need a break from coronation virus (as my Irish friend calls it) news obsession 🥱

fatgran57 Fri 20-Mar-20 03:23:08

Thanks pensionpat! Will look forward to that.
