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

This evening we’ll be watching :
Taking Control: the Dominic Cummings Story (BBC2)
The Repair Shop (BBC1) - my current favourite 🔨🏺.

I will look for threads on these two programmes ...

I forgot about the Cummings thing. Yes I shall watch that.

I do like a good pot boiler as well. We will need lots of stuff to help us through especially if it lasts into the winter😲

I'm really keen to watch Kate & Koji which starts tonight. Yes, very happy to join in a conversation about it if anyone else is too?

I'm watching The Repair Shop it's so touching to see the joy on people's faces when their treasured items are given a new lease of life. The repairers are a really talented group of people

I do like The Repair Shop

Always watched when it was on in the afternoon

I used to say it should be on in the evening and here it is

Excellent programme

Montalbano. You need to stay awake to follow the plot.

paddyanne Thu 19-Mar-20 00:30:15

I saw that they will be stopping filming on Eastenders. Corrie might be next. We get these in Australia. I look forward to watching something about 'normal' UK life before Corona!
