I forgot about This Is England. It's on 4OD and is a treat in store for anyone who hasn't seen it.

Only a 'treat' if you were a skinhead or want to watch skinheads. I'd rather watch something that makes me happy.

I wasn't a skinhead?

And it wasn't about watching skinheads. It was a heartwarming story about a group of young people who grew up across 3 (?) series. They had ups and downs, and some of the downs were low - it was set in Thatcher's Britain, so bits of it weren't easy to watch - but a lot of it was comic gold, and mostly it was human drama.

Also, nobody needs to be a particular 'type' of person to enjoy TV programmes about people of that 'type'. I also enjoyed Downton Abbey, and I am neither a member of the aristocracy nor a servant. As with everything else on this thread, these things are a matter of opinion - we all like different things.

Spiral (I felt I knew the characters)
Line of Duty (only the earlier series)
The Virtues (Stephen Graham was phenomenal in this)
The A Word (brilliant soundtrack too)

Oh yes, The A Word was excellent.
