Is it being shown on Spanish TV, presumably with subtitles, or has your downloading friend got it on DVD for you?

No, it's not on Spanish TV or a DVD - my downloading friend put it straight into my computer, as he does with all the films and series he passes on. He has the knack of finding them in English through the Internet and often quite soon after their release or first TV broadcast (eg. he recently let me have 'Blade Runner 2049' and Woody Allen's latest film, 'Wonder Wheel', neither of which is even in DVD yet.) Incidentally, Spanish TV never uses subtitles for foreign films, etc.; there's a system in the TV for all the eight major channels whereby you can switch to the original version.

I always thought the rack was a horizontal torture instrument, too. That's why I imagined the torturer would say to the victim, "Now you're going down for a long stretch"...

What's with the "we" :) ?

I'm a great Silent Witness fan too Sj, have seen all of the previous series, some episodes twice. I haven't seen any of the current one yet though, will catch up on iplayer. We're three weeks in so I'll dedicate a couple of days to watching back to back.

My husband and I of course, I wasn't using the Royal 'we'!

I was correct that Botswana was mentioned in last week's 'Call the Midwife'. There was a 'You Say" letter in the Sunday Times Culture (TV guide) today in which someone pointed out the anachronism and that in 1963 it was Bechuanaland.

Looking forward to tonight's episode.

I wonder if anyone saw 'Troy' over the weekend? I have to be honest, I fell asleep in it! It was compared to 'Game of Thrones', reviews say it fell short but I can't tell as I didn't see it.

'Call the Midwife' last night was so harrowing! Poor sailor pushed off his ship to shore with no money, only what he stood up in, because the other sailors including the captain thought he had smallpox. He found his way to the Seaman's Mission and he was hounded out of there too. It was all so inhumane because if you think someone has an infectious disease all you have to do is keep away from them and call for medical help. He turned out not to have smallpox but something else and was treated properly at the Jordan Hospital in Surrey (no longer in existence, I looked it up). Won't spoil it for anyone else who hasn't yet seen the episode.
