  • Call the Midwife: Season 1


    One of the best shows still on air! Set in the 1960s in London's East End (before the gentrification of recent years). The area is poor and filled with misery. One bright spot are the midwives and what they do--bring life into the world.

  • Doc Martin: Season 1


    Another currently running series. Be warned: people either love or loathe Doc Martin (not the show but the character). He's brash, brisk, cold, and always brutally honest. But I find him highly entertaining and many others do too!

  • Vera: Season 1


    Vera Stanhope is one of my favorite characters ever! She's disorganized, un-stylish, a bit brisk. Basically, she's a bit of a mess. But, boy can she solve crime!
