Thanks to my dad, I love British culture and television. That’s why I started HipAnglophile. I wanted to share my favorite British television shows and travel locations. My dad introduced me to the Benny Hill Show when I was 9 years old. I also remember quite a few evenings watching The Avengers, Doctor Who, James Bond movies, and The Saint.
Since then, I have watched every murder mystery series from Miss Marple to Midsommer Murders. My new favorites are EastEnders, Casualty, and Holby City. So, I hope you enjoy my posts on HipAnglophile!
Since late April, beginning of May, John Yorke and company have hinted at a huge EastEnders storyline involving a stabbing death. The show is working with Brooke Kinsella, MBE, a former actress on the show. Kinsella’s brother, Ben Kinsella, was stabbed to death in June 2008. The soap’s goal is …
Enjoying an evening with Chardonnay, coding, and Shetland. #100DaysofCode
I’ve enjoyed the other seasons of the show, so, of course, I was excited to hear Season 4 was streaming on BritBox. I watched all six episodes while coding a sample webpage. Some people listen to music while they code. I prefer to watch/listen to BritMystery/Crime television shows. Shetland became my favorite because I’ve traveled to Scotland a few times and love the country. I love seeing the beautiful countryside again as Perez tries to solve the crime.
The show also reminds me of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple. She said it best:
One does see so much evil in a small village… Miss Jane Marple
So, murder and crime on the Shetland Islands seem appropriate.
“This Square is a cash cow waiting to be milked. The Vic is the heart of it.” That is what the heist was all about 👉🏾A way in! #EastEnders pic.twitter.com/3UU1VxaD7I — BovaryCee ♋️🌻🙋🏾 (@BovarysComplnt) March 9, 2018 Last Friday was the day! It was the big showdown between EastEnders Aidan …
I started watching Broken with Sean Bean on BritBoxUS three months ago. I binge-watched the rest of Season 1 after the first episode. Now, I’m waiting patiently for Season 2. (Please tell me there will be a Season 2!)
Bean plays Catholic priest, Father Michael Kerrigan. He struggles to accept his past “missteps” and to be a “good priest. I’ve been a practicing Catholic since April 2016. I’ve also had moments where I’ve struggled with maintaining the message and spirit of the mass homily. I found the show to be refreshing and comforting. Continue reading
It’s a little odd that #EastEnders Aidan Maguire returned to Albert Square, and the first thing he did was to harass Vincent Hubbard about selling The Albert. Does he already know Ciara Maguire has the money? Does he even know about Sharon Mitchell’s role in taking the money? Isn’t he concerned about why Phil Mitchell left town?
Before Aidan left town, he said he wanted to know which of the men had the money by the time he returned. He didn’t appear too concerned about it last week. Instead, he focused on making Vincent’s life hell. In fact, I wonder if Aidan has forgotten about the heist.
I have a feeling some of these questions won’t be answered…Has anyone seen Luke Browning?
