More Applause for British TV
A while back I wrote a post about British TV. I just feel the need to give this art form another shout out. The husband and I are become more and more attracted to these shows. We've followed several through Netflix and are always disappointed when the series is over. The funny thing is, that after one or two episodes of a particular series, we are often lukewarm about it. But they grow on us. We find ourselves choosing the British series over other TV options. The characters become so well developed over the series and the plots are very carefully laid out. The filming appears to be done in authentic settings rather than on sets. If they ARE sets, they are outstandingly done! And the scenery is beautiful. Although given my experience recently when visiting London, I DO wonder how they find such nice weather in which to film. To date we have watched and thouroughly enjoyed: Downton Abby; Foyles' War; The Landgirls; and presently, Doc Martin. We only have one season of Doc Martin left, so I"m open to any suggestions for our next show!
