Brit, I just put 'where is Living the Dream filmed' into Google - and there was the casting call.

Yes, I did see that one, Sister jumped off the screen. Of course she was only in one episode.

Meanwhile, the new twink, replacing Lady Felicia, and the loss of Sid, are death blows to the series. It is a shadow of its former self.

Jack Deam, while okay on DCI Banks, is an AWFUL replacement for the other two Inspectors. BTW, look up Tom Chambers in IMDb, he's gorgeous!

I wasn't able to watch the rerun of Endeavour, some shows do that to me. I also don't like where they have moved. Some shows, like Endeavour and Father Brown, would do well to call it a day. Although Allam makes the former still watchable.

Speaking of UNwatchable, Death In Paradise should pull the plug. The new Brit cop is abysmal. And as someone somewhere said, why don't they hire a local. If Florence could see her way to putting on a skirt or a pair of pants, she could have filled Humphrey's shoes.

Really, alastair? It must be me and my bias towards domestic abuse, because I found Home Fires toxic.

I watched the finale episode of Season 6, Death In Paradise - what a great episode that was! There were so many guest stars that we recognize. Speaking of Homefires, Pat (Clair Rushbrook) is in it.


Also, Julian Wadman, who has been in several Midsomers, Downton Abbey, Rosemary and Thyme and Frost among many - a very familiar face for us; Nigel Betts, another with a long list of guest roles in our favorites; Kitty (Amy Beth Hayes) from Selfridges and Penhale (John Marquez) from Doc Martin, who unfortunately never speaks on screen. And, I met the new guy...


I don't quite understand why they think that Florence, in her role as Detective Sergeant, should walk around in short-shorts, tanks tops and usually as little clothing as possible. She is a top notch, capable DS who could easily run the investigations... I know it is the Caribbean, but no female of authority should dress like that. It is akin to having Humphey wear swimming trunks and a tee shirt. That didn't do that now, did they?



*Alastair*, I will PM you my FB link.

Brit, I guess the PTB know that this show is thin on storyline, so they have to appeal to the 18-49 demographic, and from evidence at D/S, they are reaching their mark. Most salivate over Florence in her shorts, as they did Camille in hers.

If you recall, Florence's first appearance was in full cop gear, which she shed next episode. I guess the female actors in this show haven't yet heard about feminism.

Great? Really? You were able to watch O'Hanlon and his daughter move into Humphrey's 'shack'? You have a stronger stomach than I.

Well Deedee, when you think of it O'Hanlon moving in was in the last two minutes of the entire episode. Up to then, I had no idea he was the new replacement so I watched the entire episode without this knowledge.

I enjoyed it for the storyline, the various guest stars - there was always someone popping up that I knew - and the fact that Humphrey finally found love and chose the life that would make him happy. From my perspective, it was a good ending to the season and a good goodbye to Humphrey. Kris Marshall had decided to leave, there was not much anyone could do about that - at least he had a happy send off and didn't wind up like DI Poole. :)

Thanks, Brit!


Deedee, I agree about domestic abuse. However, I was referring not to the plot but to the production values. The set, location, and acting made me feel I was actually there and eavesdropping on real people, not just actors. It was well done, IMO. Sorry..

Did you see the episodes in England, Brit? I took an instant dislike to him, but that's just me.

Sorry to me, alastair???!!! Oh, no need. Again, just me, because the storyline hit too close to home. I grew up with it. As a result, I cannot watch movies or teevee shows where women (or children or animals) are helpless, willing or otherwise, victims. More's the pity, because I miss out on some very good movies and tv shows.

Know what ya mean dee ...... A show with any of lifes burdens can be watched easily when it has not touched on you're own life. For me I was enjoying the Wallender Series until they had to wrap up the show with Wallander coming down with dementia . Then it was not so much fun.

I concur completely with everything said above!



(...and for the record, I don't support or condone violence and abuse in any form to either human or animal. As for my comment about Home Fires a couple of days ago, that was directed solely towards ITV, PBS, and the powers that be..)

Dear Lord, Alastair, no one in their right mind would ever think that about you. I watched Homefires regularly, I may have hated what was happening to Pat, but I understood they were telling a story about people's lives in the village and that (unfortunately) was her life. The series itself was done very well and had many good moments along with the bad.


I am so glad you and Soler enjoyed the photos and info on the wedding. I am in full bridezilla mode... I eat, sleep and dream weddings these days. I will be updating the info as I go along before the big day.


Soler, I love my dress, it is the perfect one for me! The Cote d' Azur is a wonderful place, like no other in my book. Thank you for the kind words!!

Thank you, Brit, you convey my feelings exactly - it's a shame some people take what I said the wrong way. Also, when I ended that post with "Sorry..", it meant that I was sorry someone didn't agree with my opinion and sentiments.

Yes, again all my best wishes to you both. You are one of the kindest and sweetest persons I've known at this or any forum..

Here we go. I really do not like Michelle Pfeiffer, I have never liked her in anything, woman can't act. She is completely wrong for this, as soon as she opens her mouth she grates and that is only in the first 10 seconds we hear her.

Alastair, thank you for saying that. I try to view people positively and put them in the best light, but I know I can get a bit touchy now and then and have had my moments when I go off the rails!

Yes, this forum is like 'home' and we're all family. Thank you Brit, and Carla, and Deedee for finding this oasis..

Carla actually found it, we all came on-board with her. I came over, then Deedee and Soler and we finally found you through an "other" channel. JH1 was the only one who would tell us how to get in touch with you.


I feel the same way, this forum is "home" to me.

Hello everyone! Been busy, but wanted to stop by for a quick minute. Looks like more "Downton Abbey" in our future. I just finished rewatching the last season, the penultimate episode and the finale were the best of the entire series. I really enjoyed every minute of both. Does make me look forward to more, so I am kind of happy about the movie. No Violet, of course, Maggie Smith won't be back, but I expect they will bring in another personality that will help to fill in the gap...although you cannot replace her, she drove that series even in the darkest times.




I watched the "Grantchester" Christmas Special last night. Don't ask me why 'cause I gave up on that show. I tried an episode again last season and still had the same negative feeling. Maybe because it was Christmas and it had a warm and fuzzy quality, but I rather enjoyed it. I know, I am shocked too. I may actually give it one more try. It will never be a favorite, yet this season may turn in to decent viewing for a Sunday night. I'll keep you posted.

Did anyone watch "My Mother and Other Strangers"? I saw a little of it, I was on the phone and didn't give it my full attention. I am not compelled to go back and rewatch it. It wasn't floating my boat, wasn't what I expected.


SPOILER..... I went and read the synopsis, revolves around a triangle love story. I am not all that interested. Let me know what you all think about it.

No surprise, Brit, but I can't imagine Downton without Maggie Smith - even if it is a movie. She might be saying no for now, but not without a fight from Fellows before possible production, I think..
