I was in graduate school for an eternity, and just plain unaccountably unawares for extended periods.  Consequently, I've been catching up late to such programs as Inspector Dalgliesh, Inspector Morse and Inspector Lewis, Hetty Wainthropp, Midsomer Murders, and (as a history buff) my all-time favorite, Foyle's War.  Am I missing anything important?  Please warn me if I am!

Depends what you consider "important", David.  You've named a few of my favorites above.  I can't seem to pass up a repeat of any episode of "As Time Goes By" or "Keeping Up Appearances", so I guess that makes them part of my important list.  :-)  Just watched Cully Barnaby get married on Midsomer Murders and am anxiously awaiting the next episode in my Netflix queue.  Hoorah for PBS and Netflix!

Classic stuff there, James.  I remember watching those with my family while growing up.  The good old days of black & white!  How about George Burns & Gracie?  The Honeymooners?

Thanks for the church photo, Paul!  What a charming setting for a wedding it is, as are many of the churches in England.

Indeed it is Barbara and as Tom walks daughter Cully up this path, the former home of Sir John Mills can be seen in the background, as it does at the very start of the episode Ghosts of Christmas Past and you can see inside of it in Death In Chorus.

A young lady getting married here a year or so ago, used one of my photos of this church on the front of her wedding service stationery. More unusually this year, a photo of mine in Surrey was used for a funeral service as well. The lady said her father would have loved the photo of where his service was being held.
