    Started watching Luther, bit slow in starting, suppose it was down to introducing the characters, anyway it is starting to grab my attention and interest, thanks for the recommendation.

    No worries.

    If i put that list in order of preference Luther would probably be second bottom with The Fall last so make sure you watch the others if you haven't seen them.

    On Netflix? Luther, Peaky Blinders, The Thick of It, Doctor Who.

    It would be a pretty standard police show but Idris Elba and Ruth Wilson hammer it out of the park.

    Been said but pesky blinders and Luther are excellent telly, I love finding box sets after they've been on so you can have a good binge

  11. Peaky Blinders, most definitely. Excellent stuff.

    The Thick of It

    Another one to add to the list is Broadchurch but unfortunately it's not on Netflix.
    I've just watched the first series and it's brilliant.

    I've only watched ep 1 so far but i have heard it's a bit shite.
    I feel like i've got to watch it though as it's linked to series 1 and i want to know what happens.

    Just noticed this thread has reappeared so thought I would add a comment again.

    I just finished watching Sherlock series 4 and now wholeheartedly commend @The Exile's advice to stop viewing at the end of series 3. Things were already pretty far-fetched by the time that series ended but series 4 is the one where the show finally "jumps the shark" in grand style. The final episode, where Sherlock discovers that he has an evil sister (Eurus) with powers of mind control who is incarcerated in a maximum security prison for the protection of the human race, with Mycroft's full cognisance and authority, and who turns out to have actually started running the prison through her powers of mind control, is an insult to the intelligence of the viewer, unless that viewer is watching, mouth agape, to see how carried away the producers of a tv show can get and how far up their own arses they can insert themselves. The suspension of disbelief required to watch that episode was, I'm afraid, far in excess of what I or our lass could muster, and we were just looking at each other in astonishment as Eurus put Sherlock, Mycroft and Watson through hoops and things got progressively more ridiculous.

    I don't actually see how they could make another series after that, which would have any credibility at all.
