I finally watched the final 3 episodes of Mr. Selfridge and the final 2 episodes of Call the Midwife. I love both of these shows... almost as much as Downton Abbey. I started watching CtM at the start of this season so I'm going back (thankyou Netflix) to watch all of the S1 episodes. Hopefully that will tide me over until S3 starts.
I'm surprised at how very much I am liking all three of the shows (Mr.S, CtM and DA).
It's only thru my FORT buddies I ever heard about them in the first place so I thank you so very much!!!
It's true what folks are saying about pilots sometimes not being very representative of how good a show will be. I watched about the first five minutes of the first show of Call the Midwife and turned it off. I didn't get back to it until halfway through this last season when a friend told me that I really needed to watch it, and it really is a good show!
pbs.org has s2 of Call the Midwife available for streaming. I had missed the episode before the s2 finale and watched it on the pbs site before watching the finale :)
It has begun...

'Downton Abbey' Series 4 Pictures - Maggie Smith As The Dowager In Graveyard Where Lady Sybil And Matthew Crawley Are Buried
The Huffington Post UK | Posted: 17/05/2013 16:14 BST | Updated: 17/05/2013 16:14 BST
The first pictures from 'Downton Abbey' series four have emerged online.
In the photos, taken on the set of the hit ITV period drama in Brampton, Oxfordshire, 'Downton's matriarch the Dowager Countess of Grantham (Dame Maggie Smith) can be seen visiting a graveyard.
She stands alongside Isobel Crawley (Penelope Wilton), near where the late Lady Sybil and Lady Mary's husband, Matthew Crawley, are buried.
The headstones of Jullian Fellowes' beloved characters, who both died in series three, feature in the pictures.
Jessica Brown Findlay recently told The Huffington Post UK she wasn't ready for the outpouring of grief that greeted the demise of her character Lady Sybil, who died in childbirth.
"The day Sybil died I was flying out to film in New York," she tells HuffPostUK. "Normally when you land somewhere, you get a couple of messages, but I had an onslaught from people saying, 'you could have warned me.'"
She added: "Julian did such an amazing job with Sybil that it was a really exciting way to go out. I had to keep very quiet about it."
'Downton' will return for an eight-part fourth series and a Christmas special in the autumn on ITV. Check out the pictures below...
