A selection of British TV news from the past week:
The Great British Baking Show series 7, episode 5: recap.
British TV premieres coming in October: Yay, more Agatha Raisin! I started out as not a fan of Agatha Raisin, but now I’m addicted. Mainly because of Sir Charles rather than James Lacey. But hey, to each their own.
The War of the Worlds from BBC One: Trailer.
What’s on this week in the UK. BBC Two has a new miniseries about what Great Britain buys and sells in a day, and because I’m nerdy, I think that sounds really interesting.
Doc Martin series one through nine: Will be available on DVD. (In the UK, anyway, let’s hope so for America, too!)
BBC and Netflix are teaming up to bring us a new David Attenborough nature show.
Julian Fellowes’s Gilded Age: Casting news.
Who’s going to be the new Tom Ripley? Moriarty (Andrew Scott), that’s who!
Rupert Graves will join the show Riviera for its third season.
Martin Compston (from Line of Duty) stars in a new program: Traces.
Wow, people take the historical accuracy of programs like Foyle’s War really, really seriously.
Here’s an odd headline: “How classic UK TV is Inspiring the Best Online Slots Software Developers.”
Line of Duty is not popular with everyone.
The King’s Man: Trailer.
