Watching Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror, really good. Now they probably should do another episode re Afghanistan plus the soon to be declassified 9/11 documents.

I've been watching Vigil, a new crime drama set on a submarine. So far, it's been excellent and very tense. I watched the first three episodes of Loki a bit back and need to finish it sometime, as it was good fun.

I've started the Good Doctor (yes, I know I'm late) and I'm loving it so far. I'm really relating to Shawn which is weird but also very cool. It's also medical, and I'm studying to become a physiotherapist, so it's right down my alley

Since none of us responded to your query about Motive (I've not heard of it) then you'll be the first. So please pass on the good cheer, Dave. If there is any.

Anyone like the TV show MOTIVE?

I've watched all 4 series and I really liked it. For a show that tells you who the killer and victim are at the start of the episode, there are some quite remarkable twists in the episodes. Season 3 even manages an arc story. The relationship between Angie and Vega is really well done, and avoids a lot of the usual cliches.

Modern Love.
I avoid love stories like the Derwent Plague. Why? Because they are poorly done. Sappy, unrealistic and generally stupid. Then I bumped into this little gem. It handles the subject with intelligence, wit and common sense. I thought, okay I'll give the first one a try. Each episode is a self contained story. The first one blew me away. Charming, funny and throughtful. Do yourselves a favor and check out this wonderful new show. Season 1 is great and I can only hope that season 2 lives up to the promise.

Vigil.
I'm writing another book so I haven't had time to complete this gripping tale. Just finished episode 4. Holy cow, this show has more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel. Two more to go. Will they make it???

Midnight Mass - the least you know going into it the better. Don't read any spoilers, but go into it knowing as little as possible. Well written, adult horror which wears its Ari Aster / Stephen King influences on its sleeves. Recommended.

I was willing to suspend my disbelief with a cop being flown onto a nuclear sub on patrol, and for the rooms on the sub to be surprisingly open.

However. after 2 and a bit episodes I got fed up, as the series just seems to be trying to juggle too many stories at the same time. It feels like a submarine version of 'Line of Duty' and not just because of the same actor appearing in it. Whilst I really enjoyed that series, I just can't get on with this one. I just wish that it had kept things a little less convoluted.

For a truly great crime/political drama , Edge of Darkness (the BBC series from the 80s, not the movie) is possibly the greatest of it's kind. Anyone who hasn't seen it, I urge you to do so as it's a brilliant programme and just as relevant today as it was back then.
