Shame that Broadchurch and Silent Witness clash - I watched the first two-part episodes of the latter yesterday and I'm HOOKED, but I really wanted to check out Broadchurch too. sad.gif

They really are doing odd things with Silent Witness (I know this is football related this week) but it changed time slot from Thursday/Friday last year to Tuesday/Wednesday this year and now moving it again. It's almost as bad as ABC.

Only really Waterloo Road to look forward to tonight, hopefully it's as strong an episode as last week's was. wub.gif Need to start watching Broadchurch but was discussing with a colleague at work and apparently you need to have watched the first series to understand any of what this one's about.

Yeh, there's been a lot of secrecy around what Broadchurch's second series is about but, without giving too much away, the first episode suggests that this series will develop storylines in the first series.

Thanks for reminding me that 1] the epic Suits is back, 2] that it's about time it got it's own thread and 3] that the USA Network Thread needs bumping because of all the awesome.

I'm only just half way through the second series but it's SO GOOD. It's got such a good balance of character development and the procedural side of things.

So much on Mondays. Two Corries, Waterloo Road, Broadchurch, Silent Witness and Criminal Minds series 2 on Pick, then nothing much on the rest of the week.

Another 2 part Silent Witness next Monday and Tuesday looks good and means me having to watch something on IPlayer later as we don't have a recorder. Must invest in one.

Mondays generally always get the highest ratings so I guess that's why a lot of good shows and dramas are on. That said, too many will result in clashes and the ratings would be lower than they would be had the programme been placed on another day! You'd have thought that the BBC and ITV would pay more attention to what the others' schedule is (I get that sometimes clashes are unavoidable but when it's Broadchurch and Silent Witness clashing or Emmerdale and Eastenders, then it's a no-brainer to alter schedules).

Both channels try to release their schedules as late as possible. However, the BBC may have decided to schedule Silent Witness for Monday as soon as they knew that Broadchurch would be on a Monday. Anybody with any sense who wanted to watch both would watch SW and record Broadchurch.
