Binge-worthy TV: Heartbeat

Here’s another British TV show that I absolutely LOVE.

It was a long-lasting series so we can really build a bond with the excellent ensemble cast.

Based upon the “Constable” books by Nicholas Rhea, Heartbeat is set in the 1960s.

Local constabulary patrol the town of Ashfordly and the nearby village of Aidensfield in the North Riding of Yorkshire. They keep the peace while also dealing with local lovable rogues and their own love lives.

Definitely binge-worthy!

Binge Worthy: The Hour

A while back, I recommended Scott & Bailey, an awesome TV show, and now I have another British series to share.

My London-born DIL had never heard of The Hour and now she’s hooked, too.

Sadly, it seems that there are only two seasons, but it’s well worth watching.

The Hour stars Dominic West who also portrays Prince Charles in the current season of The Crown. I’m not sure I agree with this casting as PC, but I’m happy he got the part because he’s an amazing actor.

It’s about the early years of the BBC, or as my DIL calls it, the “Beebs”.

From IMDB: “A behind-the-scenes drama and espionage thriller in Cold War-era England that centers on a journalist, a producer, and an anchorman for an investigative news programme.”

I found it on PBS and Amazon Prime, but it’s on Acorn too. Whatever you have to do to be able to watch it, do it! Trust me, you’ll love it as much as we do.

I hope to see Dominic West in more starring roles; he’s WONDERFUL.
