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!
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?

I have a feeling some of these questions won’t be answered…Has anyone seen Luke Browning?
When John Yorke took over as Executive Producer (Consultant) in June 2017, fans talked about the beginning of a “New Era” for EastEnders. They believed that Yorke would boost ratings higher than the previous executive producer (EP). It looked like we were heading in that direction. In fact, there was …
I know it’s after Christmas, but I had to share this video. Love Actually is my favorite Christmas movie! (Actually, it’s the only Christmas movie that I watch every year.) So, I had to see St. Wilfrid’sversions of the scenes from the movie. They did an awesome job. It definitely put me into the Christmas spirit.
I just have a feeling that Karen Taylor’s father has come to Walford.
I can’t get those scenes between Keegan Taylor (Zack Morris) and Aidan Maguire (Patrick Bergin) from Monday’s EastEnders episode (on BritBoxUS) out of my mind! Aidan first spoke to Keegan as he was arguing with Bernadette…
“Oi! … Thought I recognised the voice.” “Well do ya?” “No, must have been some other little squeaky git.”
Monday night’s EastEnders (EE) episode was all about the “new.” It was John Yorke’s first episode as Executive Consultant. There was a lot of anticipation for his first episode. Fans on Twitter talked about EE starting a new era with Yorke. Well, I’ve had some time to think about the …
