    I really really enjoyed Murder Rooms which was on the BBC in 2000. Basically a drama about the real life inspiration behind Sherlock Holmes.

    Bollocks...sir.

    I really appreciate all the suggestions from everyone. We just finished watching part one of the first Messiah story and we're really enjoying it. We also watched the first episode of Moses Jones the other day, and we're still undecided it. I like the main actor who was in Impossible Planet/Satan Pit. Maybe after seeing how the initial story concludes we'll know if we really like it or not. I also acquired Whitechapel but we haven't started that yet, and I'm acquiring State of Play as we speak. You guys are the best.

    --

    Watched the rest of the first Messiah, and the first ep of State of Play tonight. You guys rock.

    Its hardly Grade's fault that ITV can't afford to keep them on, they've been dropping out of doing big budget dramas for a while now. But he's made some bad decisions dropping some of those programs.

    To be fair to Grade (not often you see that on a Doctor Who forum Big Grin), He's currently got one of the toughest jobs in television and some pretty drastic decisions are going to have to be made just to ensure the continuing survival of ITV.
    Also a number of the shows facing cancellation have been well past their best for years.

    Unfortunealy, The Bill isn't one of them, that program should have been laid to rest since they starting mass employing ex soap actors thus the program istself becoming a soap. Evil

    This is a drag. We really enjoyed Messiah, but I can't find the next series (or any other series for that matter) anywhere. I'm trying my big three sources: the demon, the mini, and the iso. Anyone have any other suggestions?
