      We get an online streaming service from the BBC called Britbox. Love it.
      Hundreds upon hundreds of quality shows and series.
      The Coroner
      Death in Paradise
      Shakespeare and Hathaway

      Many more, but we binge those right now.

          PBS aired two shows I enjoyed. One was Good Neighbors, the other was The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The latter was one of few productions that do justice to the book.

            Felicity Kendall, the yummy little thing from The Good Neighbours is in the current Brit mystery series called Rosemary and Thyme. A simple show but good. Great to see her still working forty years after.

                  The Repair Shop looks interesting, but it's on Netflix, and would require another subscription, for me. Oh well?

                  All of the people in the pictures above who are smiling & showing their teeth can't be real Brits.

                    The repair shop is fascinating to me. Very skilled craftsmen and women with all types of skillsets, doing what they do best. Well worth a watch. Wish there were more shows like it.
                    Going to look into britbox as well, seems Amazon prime has it.

                    Yes on The Repair Shop. The guy that works on the clocks and the woman on the paintings have some serious skills. Case Histories is a good mini-series. Derry Girls is good too, Irish though. The Great British Baking Show, Prime Suspect: Tennison, Endeavor, Peaky Blinders, are all good, to name a few.

                      There’s also a sweet Dodge Polara 500 that makes a cameo in Endeavour season 5. Sounds really good too.
