Avoid Black Narcissus on BBC. Pure tripe.

Been watching Cornwall: This Fishing Life on BBC On Demand. Filmed in 2018, the pre-Brexit chat is illuminating, but mainly it's just been a fantastic easy watch.

Finished Timeless the other night, easy watch time travelling series.
 Bit of a history lesson but just 2 seasons so no prolonged story

24 hr in Police Custody last night - it is rare to see such a cunning, manipulative, ruthless woman

Started watching “Billions” on Amazon
Brilliant show and according to real fund managers on Wall Street it’s reasonably accurate.
Great acting and writing.

Watched The Serpent on BBC iPlayer. Good show. Enjoyed it. Based on a true story of Charles Sobhraj a serial killer on the hippie trail in Asia.

Very enjoyable (if that's the right word?).

I read the book years ago, it was a horrid tale and I'm not at all tempted to watch the tv drama. I think the tv drama just stops after he got caught.  I read that he earned millions after he did some jail time and returned to France, a celebratory of sorts. But as it turned out he finally got his second comeuppance, deserved justice served chilled.

I believe he has managed to get married to some young girl whilst in jail so his powers of persuasion don't seem to have waned. A bad, bad hoor.

Jenna Coleman is lovely.

Trial 4 on Netflix is another reminder of how rotten and corrupt the justice system can be, especially in America - and would resonate here in the North too.

Some references to the Irish connection in Boston.  Serious amount of time spent trying to get police to release files. And you still have cops insisting the case was clear cut and no foul play. Would make your blood boil.

Similar sort of stuff to Making a Murderer but not as long.

Briarpatch on Alibi has started off like a house on fire, bit like Fargo - with a touch of Twin Peaks.

Watching Dark on Netflix... you’d need a degree in story following to get round it but I love this type of stuff
