I just finished watching the Dr. Martin series last week. I liked it. A little weird here and there, but a great series.

Have you watched Big Bang Theory on TV? I'd like to put Dr. Sheldon Cooper from that show and Doc Martin together in a room and see them stare suspiciously at one another. It's nice to see weirdness written into successful (and entertaining) TV characters.

Will Mary marry at all? Stay tuned, right, Addie?
I am absolutly hooked. According to the interview, Mary and William get together in the end. And I had a news clip that Shirley McLaine has joined the cast as Countess's mother from America. She has some go-arounds with the Dowerger Countess. It is gettin so good.

Now that sounds like fodder for some real fireworks. Shirley McLaine and Maggie Smith -- whoda thought?

Don't tell me William & Mary get together, run off to America, and found a university....

Good one.
In the clips of future shows, it shows Mary pushing a wheelchair.

No, I haven't seen that series yet. I have no regular TV service. I only have NetFlix, which is plumbed to my TV via HDMI. The Big Bang series is available on NetFlix by mail. I may request it later.

The Big Bang Theory is hilarious. And no violence!!! It can be done.

I love your theory of putting the Doc and Sheldon in th same room.

Well, it would have been a better joke if it hadn't just now hit me that I think we're mistaken -- it's Cousin Matthew she's longing for, isn't it? Matt 'n Mary U. -- not so much.

So the big newspaper man is going to be out, huh?

Sometimes it is hard to keep the characters right. William is the one who married Daisy and then died. I think Masterpeice has a penchant for the name Daisy. There was a maid in U&D stairs. And a couple of other shows. Or maybe the English are just fond of the name because it is easy to remember.
