The Detectives: Murder On The Streets

Postby TeresaFoodie » September 20th, 2017, 9:41 pm

Pick of the day in my Mail TV guide tonight, BBC2. My Dad alerted me to it or I would have missed it although I had highlighted it as a possible for a 9pm watch.

I had geared myself up for it being a fiction drama but quickly realised and then re-read that this is real stuff that happened in Manchester and I was gripped. I can't remember the last time I was so hooked onto the edge of my seat, holding my breath, not even wanting to break away for a toilet or tea break. BBC2 so no ads. Perfect televisual feasting, for me anyway.

Did anyone else catch it? Well worth catching up if you can if interested in this sort of thing. Would be interested in your thoughts and looking forward to the next episode.

I tend to steer away from true crime programmes as they can seem a bit voyeuristic, but I suppose if the programme focuses on how the crime was solved it might be interesting. Too often these programmes focus on the victims and the effects of the crime on their families and friends.

Hmmm ... Tezza ... you had a bad dream last night ... that's one of the reasons I just don't watch that sort of stuff any more ... it used not to affect me but when I hit my forties I seemed to become more affected by such things and I still am.

I began to watch and turned it off because I knew just what it would do to my chances of a good night's sleep and especially because we are an hour ahead

I'm not surprised you had ightmares Tezza.

Well, I really wouldn't pin the programme on my bad dream because things like this and Crimewatch have interested me forever even when living alone. True crime in general has always fascinated me especially the solving of crime, police work, crims getting caught, and this was just that. My dream was vividly to do with a natural disaster.

I am looking forward very much to the next episode where conclusions should be made.

I can no longer watch anything like this. I think it's an age thing. I can't watch animal programmes either, The Yorkshire Vet excepted.

Brilliant place for independent shops, and you could become one of the undercover yarn bombers. I always look forward to seeing their creations in the market place.

Happy to report that said part time receptionist trained as a human hairdresser before changing career, but still keeps some of her long standing clients.
