    Default Endeavour.

    Rather enjoyed that.

    Made up for the unmitigated dross that was served up over Xmas.

    Turns out that John Thaw's daughter appeared as the newpaper editor lady.

    Not my sort of thing. Was looking forward to Sherlock and Doctor who as the highlights. Doctor Who was pretty pants, still have to watch Sherlock.

    Me too. Endeavour was all right though.

    I agree that Dr Who was poor (mostly because of all the blatant political messages) but Sherlock was entertaining.

    I liked Endeavour and hope they make a few more.

    Doctor Who was :tulip:e (as it has been for quite a while).

    Ah, Mrs Styles wondered if she was related.

    Endeavour didn't appeal to me, much. There aren't many prequels that do, to be honest - I'd just find myself thinking "ooh, isn't that odd that he doesn't like telling people his first name, likes a pint, and listens to opera. I wonder if he'll be like that when he gets older...."

    Plus part of the appeal of Morse was wondering what his first name was. It's a bit of a clue in this one.

    The series is now trying to by too clever by half (with Christopher Eccleston, it was quite clever how they put the "Bad Wolf" thing in everywhere, but you didn't realize it until the series finale, whereas now it's always got some hidden link). Far too twisty-turny Stephen Moffaty for me, now.

    That said, I'll be sad when Amy leaves this season.

    Didn't rate the Christmas one at all.

    Watched Sherlock last night and would agree with that quote for Moffat.

    Very disjointed and trying to be far too clever. Bit like Dimprawn.
