That’s the Christmas spirit. ;)

My old girl is such a dear, she’s lounging on the sofa at the mo.

Okay - hopefully happy and content - mine is in the garage

Now this may come as a surprise - but I am intelligent enough to work out that you dont get rid of the old ones before the new ones arrive ;) ;)

Stone me, is it really so long since anybody posted a reply on this thread? ‘Spose that means we’re all a bunch of miseries having a rubbish time. Well Mme Diamond and me are really loving the latest series of Last Tango in Halifax. Tonight’s second episode was bloody wonderful. Yet again the BBC comes up with magnificent drama.

There's a hidden gem on Channel 4 Saturdays 9pm gmt. It's called Hidden and is Welsh-Noir. This is the second series and Ep 3 of 6 has just aired. Series 1 and first 3 parts of series 2 on iplayer.

Try it, it's very well done and you get to learn a bit of Welsh. Diolch.

Last Tango is brilliant, I turned over halfway through a new (to me) comedy detective thing with the excellent Jason Watkins in, to watch it.

Hidden is good and I love listening to the Welsh and wishing I had got my Grandads to speak it to me when I was little, but it does require some concentration and I would rather there was a little more of the main plot and a little less of the main characters' private lives.

What fascinates me is the way they switch seamlessly between Welsh and English, even between characters who are Welsh speaking.

Lastly, I am really into a French murder mystery on Netflicks, La Foret, after recently finishing a Norwegian thriller set more or less now (UK has left the EU). It was really gripping but went on too long, I was not displeased when I got to the end of season 3. :roll: Seems to be a Netflix trait I think, too much of a good thing, I was exhausted by Outlander and couldn't finish it.

It was originally shown on S4C where the entire dialogue is in Welsh, the scenes in English were reshoots done at the same time. Must have been hard for the actors and crew to do that.

Have you tried Hinterland with the superb Mali Harries or Keeping Faith with Eve Myles (I let out a little groan of lust there!)? Both Welsh, both excellent.
