For some reason, my November 13th blog entry did not post, so here it is…
The Bay (2019 – ) Season 1
Police in the Morecambe Bay area in Lancashire investigate missing persons and suspicious deaths.
My thoughts: Didn’t grab me. Felt very run-of-the-mill
Unforgotten (2015 – ) Season 3
London detectives investigate crimes from the past, unravelling secrets left buried for years.
My thoughts: This show keeps getting better and better. Well-plotted mysteries.
Line of Duty (2012-2021) – Season 5
The series follows the actions of Superintendent Ted Hastings, DI Kate Fleming and DS Steve Arnott as they investigate an Organised Crime Group with links to missing undercover officer DS John Corbett.
My thoughts: Riveting, always surprising, but not as strong as previous seasons.
Utopia (2013 – 2014) Season 1
After a group of people, who meet online, discover a bizarre graphic novel which seems to hold mysterious answers, they find themselves being tracked down by a merciless organization known merely as ‘The Network’.
My thoughts: If quirky conspiracy shows are your thing (I have discovered they are not mine) then this should could be for you.
4 Blocks (2017-2019) Season 1
Based in Neukölln, Berlin, Toni manages the daily business of dealing with the Arab gangs and ends up wanting to leave his old life behind for his family, but as expected, it’s never that simple.
My thoughts: The strong brotherly bond at the heart of the show and the unique Persian underworld setting goes a long way, but not enough to keep me watching past the first season as it ultimately felt all too familiar to me.
