I might watch Secret City.

I rarely watch TV but this week I'm home alone and have been watching a bit of Jerry Seinfeld and Comedians in Cars etc. Not too bad.

Latest Midsomer Murders. Now rammed with ethnics.

Old producer got sacked for saying there were no ethnics in Midsomer and that is the way viewers liked it.

Midsomer could be a great place to live if you didn’t get murdered. Nice village pub, provided you got on with the locals. Village shop for all your day to day needs. Causton for all your other shopping.

Lots of activities and groups to join. No problems getting around though public transport thin on the ground.

Nice cottages with thatched roofs for ordinary folk. Big country pile for the better off.

Last October we stayed in Oxford and drove out and around all those "Midsomers" Villages and market towns!
Heres a pic I took.

Local COMBINED Church groups do Sound Of Music - bound to be a few bloody murders - we jumped in the hire car and sped out of town.

I tend to support the key figures in ‘Line of Duty’ and don’t like it if/when they go bad.

New for this series is Stephen Graham who is a good actor, but a professional scouser as well. There seem to be almost as many professional scousers as professional cockneys (Ray Winston etc) nowadays. Other regions need a fair crack of the whip.

Went to look at that Line of Duty, but Netflix starts with series 3 over here.

Stephen Graham is indeed a good actor, he was excellent as Al Capone, but again was just transferring his persona. I don't like that hard and harsh brutalized Liverpudlian accent that became popular on the back of Boys From The Blackstuff, Brookside and the whole decline of the city in the 1980s. This was the vernacular of the underclass and inner-city. From where I am from scallies use it to display their alleged hardman credentials and I find it fake.

There's other Liverpool accents which some might consider softer, or even suburban, these can be heard in the past with Arthur Askey, Jimmy Tarbuck, The Beatles and even woolly back scouser, Lewis Collins. It works well with comedy.

And remember this, scouse comedian Alexei Sayle doing his best cockney impersonation:


The 12'' banned version was best, ''Come from the north do ya', ya fucking northern cunt ya!'':

The Derry Girls, the best sit-com Hat Trick Productions/Channel 4 has done since Father Ted. My kids like it too, buy they need the English subtitles as they can't understand the Irish accents.

Only just discovered that Stephen Graham convincingly played a cockney - Tommy - in ‘Snatch’. So he is not just a one dimensional professional Scouser as I had previously thought.
