    Ohhh bollox, the mrs wasn’t happy with last weeks turn of events so it sounds as tho I could be in bother when we watch it.

    Was pretty grim tonight.
    Bloody good though…up to last night there were 3 good dramas on the box…this, Fargo and Prey.
    I’d say this is emerging as the best (runs for cover from all the Fargo fans).

    Not seen tonights yet but last weeks was disturbing & compelling. I bet the local tourist board love it. Put me right off v venturing north

    Is it as good as Red Riding? May have to catch up if it is.

    Good lord. Tonight’s episode was darker than a photograph taken on the dark side of the moon with a 1/1000 sec shutter speed, f8 and ASA 100 film.

    Truly disturbing.

    Sarah Lancashire just gets better.

    And so does the writing.

    Bon nuit.

    Watched Happy Valley for the first time tonight **** me 😯 So I went on to iplayer and caught up **** me 8O, what a cracking drama!

    Roger, as much as i enjoyed Red Riding it did seem a bit to wilfully obscure at times.
    This as left me breathless at times, its brilliant, gripping telly 😀

    Yes, it’s very good.

    Three more episodes left too 🙂

    BTW: What’s the “pike” thing on the hill behind Steve Pemberton’s house ?

    Hasn’t done West Bay (Broadchurch) any harm, but I know what you mean.

    Pretty much anything from the Red Production Company is really good I’ve found (they do tend to have a core of actors/actresses which I quite like so far).
    I’m starting to wonder how this is all going to end up and suspecting a bit of a shock.
    I was supposed to be doing some work for them as they were moving offices but that’s not happened yet 🙁

    I had to watch bits of last night’s through my fingers, Dr Who stylee.

    It’s the same woman who wrote Last Tango In Halifax.

    The valley looked beautiful in that, but this one has really got it – it CAN be a bit grim up North.

    😀

    caught up with it over the weekend after reading this last week, great shout!

    I take it episode 4 is of a similar “gritty” nature. The mrs has again kicked off.

    Think Sarah Lancashire and the writers will be picking up another award next year, this is simply gripping and the fact i know all the locations makes it seem more ‘real’ for some reason.

    Episode 4 of 6 last night… we went to bed in a state of near shock. And I’m going to be overseas for two weeks for the final episode! Aaaargh!

    Top drama. Pretty accurate re minor details and life in a nick.

    Obviously got some real coppers to advise who haven’t spent their career in a back office……..

    Roll on episode 5

    Excellent episode, had me rooted to the sofa in mild shock even when the news came on !

    Best thing is it all happened/filmed very close to S4R towers on Norman Street !

    There are so many similarities to Fargo…. the hapless idiotic plotter Kevin, the canny and worldly-wise Police officer Cawood and the psychopathic Tommy Lee Royce.

    My prediction: Kevin has a heart attack.

    Sooo good last night, real edge of the seat stuff

    Exactly my thoughts watching last nights episode but Fargo seems to be losing its way, Happy Valley is what Fargo should have been. (IMO)

    IanW – I’d go along with what you said.
    I was initially quite taken with Fargo but it’s meandering now.
    HV is full-on and very hard hitting – blows Fargo out of the water IMHO.

    For the first time in my 50 years on the planet I struggled to get to sleep last night because of a TV progamme. It’s excellent

    Gave up on this after the first episode, maybe I was too hasty? Guess not all episodes will be on i-Player? Edit: just checked and they are.

    Have nevertheless been enjoying Hinterland on BBC4 and eager to return to Wales for its unique scenery. First time I’ve ever heard the Welsh language being spoken and seemed odd having regular subtitles!

    The series is a slow burner for sure, but well worth sticking with.

    Is hinterland on iplayer yet? I recorded ep2 onward, haven’t watched it yet.

    Yes it is. Do hope there’ll be another series.

    New series of Wallander started last Saturday, the third version I’ve seen!
