Doc Martin? I only saw the first season, found it very amusing. Leans heavily on the screen presence of Martin Clunes, which might be dealbreaker. Fish-out-of-water comedy which might perhaps lose some punch if it goes on for too long?
Foyle's War - WW2 English police detective series - I'm told it went on for longer than the actual war, but I only saw the first 2 seasons, which I enjoyed. No sign of Victoria Smurfit, but I did get to hear Honeysuckle Weeks say "That'd be just tickety-boo, sir"
I like to rate filmed entertainment according to my 5A scorecard. Armour, Aliens, Automatic weapons, Automotive action, Ass. Both scored pretty light, but were entertaining.
