I got four eps in, Lucoid and stopped. It's good, and I am continuing to record it for a later date, but it comes a very poor second to the Danish in every respect (and the copying of the Larsens is almost actionable).

It is subtitled, yes.

In a startlingly unexpected development, Mr Lucoid has said he'll happily watch the Danish series. The cynic in me believes it's perhaps because he'll already know the story and can keep up without having to read every word on screen.

Fantastic news. Don't tell him the ending is different.

Just to remind those who showed an interest, Forbrydelsen begins its nightly run (well, Sundays to Thursdays) this weekend. 10pm, BBC4.

You'll thank me.

Yes, the French one -- a rerun of the first series.

Opening next week's Radio Times this morning gave me a nasty startle. Yay Spooks is returning (though sadly for its last ever series). Yay Downton Abbey is also back. Boo both are on at 9pm on Sunday. Two fabulous pieces of escapism, each glorious in its own unique way, pitted against one another for the last-chance-for-a-sit-down Sunday timeslot. Eeesh.
