    I had read about that Bob. It will be interesting to see if it develops.

    There is a new series starting at the end of this month called Fortitude which looks interesting.
    I think I will be giving it a go.

    I saw a promo for that last night.....I originally thought it was a holiday as, similar to the Hollywood tourism ones. But then it got sinister and looks good.

    Doctor Who, I've never managed to get sick of Doctor Who. Splendid chap, all of him. Really enjoyed the first Peter Capaldi series, starting to feel a bit more like the classic serials with a modern edge.

    Speaking of Peter Capaldi, have you watched The Thick of It?

    Farscape is another classic and underated sci fi show. Once you get through the admittedly ropey first half of series one it really becomes one of the most compelling shows from the late 90s. Muppets and all.

    Yeah, I'm a geek.

    I'm a Doctor Who fan.
    Isn't the first Capaldi series just on a mid season break?
    I thought it was back early part of 2015.

    Not sure if it's out in a box set yet, but The Knick is one of the best TV series I've ever seen. It was on Sky Atlantic. Set in a NY hospital in 1901. Not seen US TV do period drama particularly well, but The Knick was fantastic. One critic called it 'anti-nostalgia' cos it doesn't show the past in a warm, fuzzy way. Opening scene of first episode was a Caesarian - 1901 style.

    That sounds interesting. I might have a look into that one.

    I remember seeing the promos for that. That's a bold statement, I will look for it on that recommendation.

    The thick of it, one of the best tv series the bbc has made possible ever.

    Peter Capaldi was truly magnificent in it!

    Got it on my Hard Drive so will give it a watch when I'm done with SOA. Quite like Clive Owen.
