Famous people in The Bill

Once upon a time, every British actor had been in The Bill. These days, watching old episodes, famous people pop up looking young. For example, this is (the current) Barnaby from Midsummer Murders: I knew he was in the episode and worked out who he was based on him being the only male guest character.... Continue reading

The Bill

I've been watching a lot of The Bill from 1990/1991 recently. UKTV Play had a load of it up there, and then the series I was watching suddenly said it was going at the end of May. The next series will go at the end of June. Each 'series' has about 100 episodes, which I... Continue reading

Crime drama again

It's really all gone crime around here. After reading one Daisy Dalrymple book I somehow ended up taking another off the shelf when I put that one back.

I'm not sad, actually, possibly because the last episode wasn't as good as some we've had recently. Partly that comes of... Continue reading

The Bill

Although The Bill moved to Tuesdays, as far as I'm concerned, it's actually on at dinnertime on a Wednesday because I'm never in on a Tuesday. So I've just watched last night's and not far into it I thought to myself that one of the main characters on it looked suspiciously like Lee Ross, who... Continue reading
