    I do believe I like Jeremy Brett better than Basil Rathbone in that role, and John Hawksworth better than Nigel Bruce.

    I've got to see at least two programs from Australia and I love them both if I remember right I saw them on acorn TV or it might have been Brit box I can't remember which but one was called mystery road I watched that series all the way through sort of binged it every night and the other was called Darby and Joan with one of my favorite actors Brian Brown I think I got that name right

    I seen it pop up on YouTube on TV but I’m unsure if that’s free or you have too pay , it’s on ABC ( Australian broadcasting Corporation) which Is goverment owned .
    But google it should be free ….think it is for Aussies. @Denise Evans

    We are off to Victoria next month to. visit here https://www.visitmelbourne.com/regions/gippsland/destinations/walhalla
    An old gold mining town ( We seen on backroads)


    I live in South Aust , we are then traveling onto ACT after visiting Victoria

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canberra
    Where all the decision’s/. Rules are made by our Aussie elected members of parliament

    , Australia’s capital, built between Sydney and Melbourne in the early 20th century. The federal district’s forest, farmland and nature reserves earn Canberra its nickname, the "Bush Capital.”

    I'm watching Poirot again on Britbox, 2 in a row, then Shetland as well, 4 in a row, not all in one night though ;) I only purchase a streaming channel like Britbox for the time it takes me to watch a full-series FYI. No commercials is what I love about having a SmartTV. Bought a Roku for a couple hundred bucks, and had about 6 years now. Way cheaper than cable rip-off, get to watch my fave shows every night. I'm totally spoiled using streaming over cable. Only thing I don't get is live news, once in awhile someone will have a live-news stream on youtube.

    Re-watching "SHOGUN" made from James Clavell's novel of the same name. Stars Richard Chamberlain as the pilot of a Dutch ship that arrives in Japan, in 1598.
    A well written , well acted film.

    Here in Britain, we get a lot of American programmes but they are all quite old. I enjoy watching the real-life series such as 'Animal Cops', or true crime documentaries. They give an insight into the differences between our life-styles. At the week-ends, whole afternoons are devoted to one series. It can be a bit mind-blowing, though. One I'm particularly enjoying at the moment is, Dash-cam footage. It's just incredible the crazy things some people do.

    I'm rewatching the series "Gotham" which I saw most of during initial run years ago but then lost track of before the last seasons.

    Young Bruce Wayne and the world that shaped him after losing his parents so violently. More drama, a lot less "comic book" but still wacky bad guys. Interesting characters played well.

    Doogie However, MD. Daughter had missed it as she'd been too young, so we watched together.

    Friends, we'd missed so many episodes, it was required to watch over three times.

    Smallville, series on DVD found in electronics store, second hand, still a favourite.

    Merlin, had been in BBC at the time but was in mourning, glad to have been able to watch it.

    Castle, two main actors were in films, the woman played a vampire in Librarian: Judas Chalice and the man, played Hermes in Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. Then, it was curiosity to see how they'd interact. Really enjoyed it.

    Currently watching Manifest on Netflix, however, it's a condensed version, missing middle parts aka Seasons 2&3. It's kind of difficult to fit it all in and really enjoy it. We'll see...
