    • I’m afraid we have to think of it not as a permanent weekly experience but one like a TV series, that comes on air, then has a rest, then returns. It’s not dead. I am still in talks with UKTV, who produce it. I, too, am a Telly Addict. (I am also very busy at the moment, too, so bear with me and keep an eye on my blogs.) Thanks for caring.


  1. For what it is worth, you are a joy! I have loved every element of the show, adore the zen moments, and what is best, the shows you have given me are such a delight. Flea Bag and Versailles a treat. I’ve run out of adjectives. Keep busy, keep doing whatever you are doing, but please come back to the telly addicts when you can.


  2. More Telly Addict, in whatever form, would be great. I subscribed to UKTV via YouTube just to keep up. And any chance of adding your twitter handle somewhere on the site? Even though I follow you, I came here hoping to be able to quick link through to your twitter feed to re-read your thoughts on OJ Simpson: Made in America. I’m slogging through it, and it’s very well done, but I could really use an alternate ending where Nicole survives. Not sure how the audience testing let this version slip through. Too tragic (don’t mean to make light of her murder, but how did they let it happen?)


  3. This reminds me of the American audience feedback that they didn’t like the ending of Baz Luhrmann’s take on ‘Romeo and Juliette’!


  4. Glad to hear you will be back soonish. I keep checking the site and it has become a rather pointless exercise-sorry couldn’t resist.

    To pass the time I imagine what you might have said about the gallons of television that have passed under the bridge these past months. Sherlock-what was going on in that last episode? Taboo-atmospheric, gorgeous to look at, proof perhaps that Steve Knight ought not direct his writing, but again what the bleep was that last episode? And the Walking Dead-still walking, many more dead and sort of addicting. Broadchurch-a return to the tension and unwrapping of the onions of a small town that we saw in the first season? And now that Humans is on air this side of the Atlantic I’d like to reengage with you on that, a little more satisfying that I expected.

    Alas, we wait for the wisdom and the turn of phrase, the nod and the wink.

    Come back soon; you are missed. Just because people like me are too lazy to write every week doesn’t mean that we don’t click on Tuesday (the old posting day) or Thursday (the newer one) to see if you dropped one on us, as the kids say.



    • Thanks for your patience, Patrick. To keep you – and anyone else – posted, I am about to shoot some UKTV-specific reviews, and we are in discussions about the future of the regular Telly Addict. It ain’t over ’till it’s over.

      Confession: I haven’t watched the end of Sherlock yet, as I found myself a bit alienated by the unrelenting darkness of its return. I loved Taboo, every filthy, dirty, mud-caked, grunting moment of it. (Steven Knight didn’t direct it, it was Anders Engström, a Finnish director who did Jordscott and Thicker Than Water, and Kristoffer Nyholm from The Killing.) I’m enjoying Broadchurch 3, but bailed after one episode of Humans and the violent first episode back of Walking Dead – just too grim for me. Maybe it’s the state of the world – I prefer historical drama at the moment.

        thanks for the update and goodish news. I agree about Taboo and my point was that Knight’s direction of Peaky Blinders was a little showy at times-how many scenes of cascading sparks in foundries or slow motion walking groups do we really need? And with Taboo the direction was less centered on set pieces and more on the atmosphere, which was brooding and muddy and bloody and good. With the Walking Dead, I think they are trying mightily to build hope this season, but yes that first episode was beyond grim.

        Here’s to your return-hopefully.
