Another that we only watched last night, but recorded a few days ago, a Storyville "The Internet's Dirtiest Secrets - The Cleaners"

Thought provoking, when you hear that the "Burning Girl" photograph would not be permitted to be seen on Facebook / Google if it were uploaded today. And the contrast between banning of ISIS videos, and those criticising Erdogan.

BBC Four had an excellent three-part documentary this week about the Peter Sutcliffe murders. Very interesting with lots of interviews, also depressing to see the casual sexism and classism in the police investigation.

Perhaps it's a morbid sense of humour, talking of Line of Duty, but it would be strange/funny to see the chap who played the PM's bodyguard, to make a cameo role (in character) in Line of Duty. I'm sure it could be worked in without seeming contrived.

"Audax" was just the answer to a question on University Challenge!

Yes, the percentage of questions I could answer just leapt somewhat higher

Another interesting one on BBC Four about a discipline mainly associated with bearded men in historic clothing, but now trying to move with the times. Not in fact Audax UK but the Morris Ring. Nice to clock Thaxted halfway through!

I saw that too. The other two bonus question answers were cyclo-cross and Madison.

I was impressed with the chap who got the right answer - clearly more through his knowledge of Latin than his knowledge of cycling. He seemed surprised.

The second one I would have interrupted and said "Criterium" but then he started going on about shouldering your bike up steps etc.

I’m thinking this one needs a thread of its own...

Derry Girls, Fleabag and Home all finished their runs this week, with Fleabag never to return  :'( (though I did find Derry Girls disappointing this time). At least there's a new series of Veep on the go. Any other good comedies I should be aware of? Are we ever going to get a second series of The Young Offenders?

I watched the last Fleabag (excellent), read this article on the Hot Priest https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2019/apr/10/how-should-we-feel-about-andrew-scott-priest-fleabag
And was reminded what a crush I had on Anna in This Life :)

I shall mourn Fleabag's passing - at least I have the first series to catch-up on some day :)

Re: the Guardian article - who-the-feck does she think she is telling people who they should or shouldn't fancy. Utter tripe.
My _personal_ opinion about the priest is that he was convincingly conflicted - as was Fleabag. Neither was doing the right thing. Or a right thing. Or a wrong thing. Such is life. And it made for some cracking scenes - some funny, some heart-string-pulling  :thumbsup:
Great wedding speech too!

There was just a trailer on BBC4 for the new season of Cardinal. Didn't say exactly when though.

Well not until April, but Killing Eve series 2.

Not before May 26th now, as that's the date of the final episode broadcast in the US>

Might be a while before we see it, as it only broadcast in Canada in March 2019.

New Line Of Duty tonight.
Having missed out on Line Of Duty first time around, Mrs Legs and I are bingeing from S1Ep1 at a rate of about one per night.  Isn't it great?  :D
