    Please, more programs like Elizabeth is Missing. Did not want to see The Heart Guy return. Miss Scarlet and the Duke looks promising. Not too excited by All Creatures Great and Small. Have already seen one adaptation of the book. Have enjoyed Midsommer Murders. Sad to see they are no longer filming.
