I have really enjoyed watching Bosch on Prime, started season 7 this week. Excellent show.

My view is that hes intentionally put himself into a story hes spent his whole life trying to write.
I tend to agree. I really felt for the woman's family in the whole thing and that bollox walking round milking the story didn't help anything. If anything he got in the way of the investigation.

Just starting my second self isolation period. Any good recommendations?? Is the Clarkson farm one any use?

Pinged or covid yourself?

Household member/ close contact has tested positive on PCR. This was after 4 lateral flows across 2 days, only 1 of which was positive.
I have a PCR this afternoon.

The Netflix documentary didn't seem to imply that her initial testimony was made up.  That is the main piece of evidence that made me feel it was Bailey - if that didn't happen, then there is nothing really.

Was Bailey burning all his clothes and boots in his back garden not a bit strange ?

The Sky and Netflix documentaries both seemed fair and impartial if you just watched one, but having watched both I realised they are both biased (Sky/Sheridan for Bailey and Netflix against Bailey). Not hugely biased, just enough to persuade the viewer to lean one way or the other.

The main difference was the Marie Farrell testimony. With Sky, they very much implied the first statement was the lie and the retraction was the truth. Netflix the exact opposite.

Personally I believed Marie Farrell on Sky when she said she was bullied by the cops. She initially said the guy standing across from the shop trailling Sophie was 5'8 and the guards made her change the story. Bailey is 6'2 or 6'3 and couldn't really be mistaken for 5'8. Also the location (the bridge) where Farrell spotted the person on the night, was the opposite direction to where Bailey would have been if travelling from Sophie's to his own house.

The burning of the clothes is a big piece of circumstantial evidence against Bailey. It was dealt with very quickly on Sky, with Bailey saying that it happened at least a week prior to the murder. Whereas Netflix had an eye witness say it happened the day after.

The cops never finding the other passenger in Marie Farrell's car, and in particular, not taking photos of Bailey's injuries/scratches (they drew a picture!) was bordering on unbelievable, even though it's clearly factual!

Netflix (and the French courts) treating as truth the statement from Sophie's friend saying that in the lead up to the French trial, 24 years after the murder, that she suddenly remembered that Sophie called her the day before the murder and expressed concern about an English poet, was the biggest piece of nonsense of either show.

Bailey definitely slimebag, even if he didnt do it. The main guard is a slimebag too! And Sophie's hubby! Sophie's parents and son went through absolute hell and dealt with things with pure dignity. They are the three I have most sympathy with.

The "West Cork" podcast series  is really worth a listen,  its very balanced and goes into a lot of detail

Absolutely. Well worth watching. There is some contrived nonsense that you'd see in Top Gear but it has done well because it shows a real insight into a lot of the issues farmers face. Would recommend it to anyone.
