    Seen it before when it first came out, worth a look for those that haven't.
    "Senna" was a documentary on him right? In the FI - circus I do actually support Ferrari..

Deadwood is another one of those towns, I think.

    I should really have given Vikings a chance, but I haven`t really found the time. Funny you`re mentioning Yorkshire,thing is 30 years ago I spent 3 weeks in York when I studied English. I really liked Jorvik... I really did.

    Yes indeed Shania, nearly all of the historical TV dramas (even slightly mad ones like Wynonna Earp) are based on actual events, that's what makes them so compelling. Vikings is a case in point, most of the events actually happened and most of the characters actually existed. I'm up in Yorkshire at the moment and I read in a local paper that they found the grave of an Anglo-Saxon king in Thornhill village church. It appears it was the grave of King Osberht, who was killed on 21 March 867 while fighting alongside King Aella of Northumbria against the Viking Great Heathen Army led by Ivar the Boneless. Exactly as it is shown in Vikings. Which I find thrilling! It actually happened, here! (Love Vikings by the way).

    I've been watching a SyFy channel series Wynonna Earp. It's not in the class of the greats we've mentioned here, but it passes the time. And the young woman who plays the lead role, one Melanie Scrofano, is exceedingly cute! What's it about? Basically Wyatt Earp's great-great granddaughter has to take on demons in a town called Purgatory...

I do the same - see something that fascinates me and then start reading about it. I've learnt more about the world and its history this way than I ever learnt in school or university. Currently reading about Ramesses II and the Hittites! But I will move on to the East India Company next because like you I want to know more now.

    Last episode of the series tonight, but I will probably watch it tomorrow or in the week, so no spoilers please anyone!
    Same. Cannot do without internet now.

    Being the saddo that I am, it has also led to me reading up aplenty on The East India Co. Some fascinating reading on them.

    Any of you watch Modern Family... if you haven't you'll enjoy this one as we can all relate to it.

    I loved the second episode with the bike, too funny!
