Silent Witness or CSI

You will have gathered by now that I live in the countryside in the Summer;  it's pretty cut off and folk come out to visit in the daytime but I rarely have company in the evening so I've been catching up with the UK and US TV series that I've missed over the years. We only have one TV and in the past it was mostly tuned to sports channels. (The television must be wondering why it hasn't been tuned into The Olympic Games this year). I've been looking for cheerful shows, but apart from 'The Durrells' and ancient 'Ab Fab' episodes, I usually end up watching something involving a murder or two with lots of SOCOs  in their white suits milling about. With this in mind you'll understand why I almost crashed into a ditch as I drove back from Bodrum town at dusk the other night and caught sight of this out of the corner of my eye.






Who investigates the crime when the SOCOs are the victims?

  2. Strange. They look like aliens and not especially friendly ones.

    1. If you have any other suggestions for 'feel good tele, let me know'

    2. Have you seen 'Gavin & Stacey'? I just caught up with it last year when we had a Netflix trial. 10 years old, but very funny and heartwarming.

  5. B to B, Straw men - is the plan to burn someone in effigy or to knock them over? Looks very like an early Halloween. BTW, I had to google SOCO and am still not sure. Scene of Crime Officer or Southern Comfort?

    1. You obviously don't watch any UK crime series on TV

  6. Night of the Scarecrow, Scarecrow Gone Wild, Scarecrow Slayer

    Just make sure they are still in the same place each morning

  7. Thanks for the laugh. I would probably almost crash into a ditch too. That stick could very well look like a weapon at dusk. ­čśŐ
