07:48 pm - Single Handed
Quick note - I watched the first episode of Single Handed last Sunday on ITV, and I would recommend trying to catch it if you can. I thought it might be Horlicks-TV like Heartbeat or Ballykissangel, but actually it's a well written, desperately sad, crime drama set in contemporary Ireland.

The first episode a disgraced policeman comes back to work in his home town on the isolated west coast and finds his father and the local old boys have been wallowing in casual abuse and cruelty for decades, and expect him to go along with it. It was a bit Jacobean I thought.

I don't know what happens this week, but it's probably worth checking out - 9-11 tonight.

That sounds excellent but frustratingly is not on in the US!! Argh. But I will keep a hopeful eye out for its importation.

There's a regular late-Sunday-evening murder slot on British TV, and it's often cosy-murder if you know what I mean. This is quite the reverse.
