I'm just glad I never met Miss Marple ( inspired by a train station ? )

It seems I cannot add to your extensive library of British mystery

I'll throw in "Jonathon Creek"
that was fun
but I'm no Mystery buff

"Death in Paradise" that is a modern one which I found enjoyable
it certainly has the same spirit as the classics.

S3E3 is very different from the others--less mystery, more suspense--and S3E4 ties up the story of Devil's Bridge.

It's one of the best things I've watched in a long time.
Those episodes are sitting right here after I got a little bored with the long conspiracy.
So, I will keep your recommendation in mind.

BTW; here's a comprehensive list of British Crime TV; I've been coming back to that list every now and then for years. Still being updated.

Firerat, I have a few episodes of Creek. It is marvelous. I wish I had more.

I recently started watching Jack Taylor on Netflix. It's not the style of mystery I like (which is, scene one: body found in library; scene last: detective assembles suspects in library and reveals murderer), but it's very well done and I'm enjoying it. The best way I can describe it is as an Irish Mike Hammer, if Mike Hammer had been smart.

Full disclosure: I've read only one Mike Hammer mystery. Nothing makes sense, then, in the last chapter, Mike gets drunk and suddenly knows who the murderer is. EOT. Never read another one.

They currently have all 32 episodes of Creek on Iplayer, but that is geoip locked.

Thanks, Firerat. Now I can be envious.

Did you ever watch A Touch of Frost? That would be up your street, I feel.

Then there's Cracker, truly excellent viewing. It's more gritty than Morse et al, but has great writing and acting.

A little weird. Girls, whiskey, yadda yadda. And he gets beaten up in every episode.
Dramatic in a classical sense (*), but very entertaining!

And where do I know this actor from... oh yes, GOT of course

(*) I wanted to say Macbethian, but since this is Ireland (Galway), it did not seem appropriate.

I've been traveling a little bit lately, for the 1st time in a long time. My dreams went to Hong-Kong as if wildfires exasperated by the Blues‽

The big problem, overpopulation will get here... hopefully opinions don't destroy all the reality‽
