    BBC America doesn't show many british programs. Dr. Who, of course, bit not much else. PBS shows Midsomer Murders, Downton Abbey, Doc Martin, Morse, Poldark. Many under the Masterpiece banner.

    BBC America is showing the X Files. Back to back. All night. Not a bad show but I gave up halfway through the second season as it began losing the plot. Not BBC product though.

When the cablecompany (KPN) gave us this gammon fodder they took away BBC4, which was aboutthe only thing worth tuning in to. Bastids!

    We get a while slew of BBC channels on our overprized bouquet. BBC First with its endless repeat, BBC something with its endless repeats of Top Gear and episodes of Pointless from the stone and bronze ages. BBC something else with its endless repeats of people shouting "90 SECONDS LEFT" at other people trying to cook or bake. I think the only fresh material we get is Graham Noirton's show with its endless supply of thigh-slapping celebrities.

    There is two public TV channels in Latvia - LTV1 and LTV7 (don't ask me why they rebranded LTV2 some ten years ago) and they are very, very fond for British TV series:

    Midsommer Murders
    Vera
    Hinterlands
    Sherlock
    Grantchester
    Death In Paradise
    Lewis
    Endeavour
    Broadchurch
    some Poirot series

    and list could continue if I have better memory.

    When I first came to Germany, RTL used to show Fawlty Towers (I think it was renamed "Hotel Fawlty", which was quite good at that time; the usual style would have produced something like "Hilfe! Mein kleiner spanischer Kellner ist plemplem!").

    Unfortunately, it was on on Saturday at 6 pm, which meant nobody watched it because everybody was watching Sportschau.

    Death in Paradise is filmed in Guadeloupe. Very lightweight stuff.
    Except for the victims…
