    Well wiki said this was the series end. Show creator felt the storylines were too complex... I thought they were outstanding! I have Endeavor on DVR but haven't watched it yet. Tomorrow will be catchup day!

    One of my most favorite shows is filming right now, Sherlock! I noticed that there is a blip on Comic-con showing a pre-recorded message from the stars - loved it!!! Here are some spoilers if your interested:
    Click to see Spoiler:
    The cast and crew are currently shooting Season 3, but the first installment, titled "The Empty Hearse," focuses on Sherlock's emergence after faking his death. Moffat, Gatiss and Vertue promised that the episode will be anything but upbeat, with the storyline focusing on how Holmes' "death" takes a toll on his friends and loved ones. The trio also assured fans that there will be a Season 4.


    If you have the chance, watch the video where Cumberbatch jokingly tries to tell us exactly how Sherlock accomplished the feat of not dying.

    Cumberbatch could read the phone book and I would be enthralled.

    Did anyone catch the premiere 2-hour episode of Silk on Masterpiece Mystery this week? I found it up to the Masterpiece standards and I'm looking forward to more.

    The premise is about a female barrister who is applying to "take silk," which means getting the silk robes and the title of Queens Council that goes with it. I'm sure the British members of this forum know much more about this process than I do, but I found this very worth watching.

    Anybody watch The Vanishing Lady? (...or was it The Lady Vanishes? heh) It was part of the Masterpiece Mysteries series.

    It took me several tries to get in to it but once I did, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Anyway, it was mentioned at the beginning of the show that Alfred Hitchcock also produced this at one time. Interesting, because I love AH but never remember a movie/tv episode of his with this story.

    If it is shown again be sure to give it a shot.

    The original, The Lady Vanishes, was one of Alfred Hitchcock's earliest films made before he came to the U.S., I think. I've seen that one more than once and I remember that Michael Redgrave, Paul Lukas, and Dame May Whittey were in it. It was a good anti-Nazi movie at the time.

    I haven't yet seen this remake and I'm not sure if I will, but since it's on Masterpiece, I may give it a try.

    Yes! I've been watching Silk and enjoying it very much! I love Martha and her somewhat goofy pupil too. Although I was disappointed to learn the identify of the father of her baby....and Billy being stuck with him for now. Makes for lots of good story lines though.

    I'm putting this under the Masterpiece Theater umbrella 'cause I don't know where else it might go.

    There's another new 6-episode British series starting on PBS tomorrow night. Title is "Last Tango in Halifax." It stars Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid as childhood sweethears and who reconnect via Facebook. I'll definidely be taking a look. Apparently it's been renewed for a season 2 in England. Here's a link for anyone who might be interested.
