    I like Amanda, just not for Sidney.

    I watched the rest of the episodes over the weekend. Can't wait for the new season to start next fall!

    ETA: I don't like Hildegard for Sidney either, BTW. She seems too cold.

    Unbelievable small town intrigue and remote connections ... That hasn't stop me from loving Father Brown or Midsomer Murders or Foyle's War or Agatha Christie's Miss Marple! Or even Murder, She Wrote, back in the day.

    Foyle's War has been pretty cosmopolitan over the past few seasons, especially the last two. Not as much small town intrigue, at least where Foyle is involved. I'm still so disappointed in the Adam recast that I don't enjoy Sam's storylines as much any more. Love the show, but just not her domestic scenes.

    is my network the only one not scheduled to carry Foyle's War? Or, are you all watching an early release that has not yet hit public television in US? I love that show, didn't realize they had a new season available. I guess I will check out Amazon to see if it can be ordered....

    I'm thoroughly enjoying Grantchester and am sad the season will only have six episodes but am happy to read there will be a second season.

    I, too, haven't warmed up to Hildegard but do enjoy the remainder of the characters very much.

    Mike'sGirl, re Foyle's War: I'm new to it, and catching up on very old seasons. It runs several times a week in the afternoons on my local PBS channel.

    I'm watching it as airs in the UK.... or, rather, I was. The season finished a few weeks ago. I've watched all of Grantchester too. I'm not a very patient person.

    I guess that means 6 months to a year before it will air locally..... so disappointing. Maybe I will have to go and watch a few of the early series just to get my fix now. Thank goodness I am enjoying Granchester...I wonder what else is coming in 2015, anyone?

    Update: Ohh Arthur & George and Home Fires both look promising!

    I am on the last episode of season 1 of The Paradise. I tried to watch it last night, but fell asleep part of the way in. It is a really good show. I can't wait to see season 2. I just wish it wasn't canceled Everyone is so good in it. I have to admit to not liking Katherine Glendenning in the last few episodes! Love Denise! I also find the actress that plays Pauline (one of the shopgirls) reminds me of actress Pauling Collins.
