did we have a british tv show thread recently?

Does anyone listen to Athletico Mince? Bob Mortimer doing some of the best work of his career. The Peter Beardsley stuff basically makes me cry with laughter every episode. Also (and everyone offers this disclaimer) you don't need to know anything about football. I don't know anything about football.

Just started on this. Very fucking funny. Bob is a lot funnier than the other bloke but still pretty consistent throughout.

Bob's songs are amazing. Ballard of Barry Homeowner has a major Pulp vibe

What's the view on Humans?

I'm being forced to catch up but I can't help thinking it's a collection of interesting ideas/black mirror jokes strung together by a stupid storyline and basically no characters to care about.

Big fan of the books, but haven't watched the show yet. I'll be impressed if they can successfully pull off an adaptation of something that bleak in the confines of a prestige miniseries

Just catching up on some of the good espionage stuff: The Honourable Woman and The Night Manager, both of which I enjoyed immensely, especially The Honourable Woman. Any other similar shows I might be missing?
