Being a trained observer from my police days, it has not escaped my notice that many of my fellow SleuthSayers are fans of British television mysteries. It helped that several of you wrote articles on this very subject--these were my first clues. I suspect that many of SleuthSayers' readers are fans, as well. I don't have enough evidence to make an arrest, but I think that it's a reasonable suspicion. So, knowing that I am in good company, I am ready to confess without benefit of counsel, that I, too, enjoy these programs from the misty home of the English language.

So there you have it, all the good reasons to watch British television. Oh...were you thinking it was the clever writing and convoluted plots that form the centerpieces of these programs? How the hell would I know? I can't understand half of what they're saying. I just like how they say it.
