    There’s another opportunity to watch the second series of ‘The Bay’ (ITV3) and ‘Counterpart’ (Virgin Ultra HD).


    Look out also for ‘Bull on Sky Witness and ‘A Discovery of Witches’ on Sky Max/Showcase.


    This is the best week we’ve had for dramas for some time, so hopefully the programmes that were delayed by the pandemic are at last coming through now.

    Interested in this one. I missed it on Saturday, but will get to it on catchup at some point.


    Nice to have something other than Bradley Walsh to watch. :)

    I would rather watch Bradley Walsh than the Geordie drink driver and his midget sidekick, would also like to see less of "I'm now gay" Scofield and the moronic Mulhern. ;)

    Young boys in the park jumpers for goalpost that's what footballs all about isn't it.

  • round the World in 80 days’ - a new series starring David Tennant (BBC1, 5.50pm, Sunday)

    I have just caught up with this watched the first two episodes on iPlayer yesterday afternoon and 3 and 4 on BBC1 as they showed them back to back yesterday evening, classic story that I think everybody knows but it was still a good watch and David Tennant is always worth a watch.

  • I'll get around to them one day OB, just don't know when.


    Apart from the odd sci fi drama like Foundation (which I saw recently) I see very little telly at the moment.
