Things That Were On Telly Last Night

Hide was pretty good. I like it when the Doctor is saving individuals rather than whole civilizations/planets/universes. The smaller stories are often the most resonant. I'm also a sucker for haunted houses.

I enjoyed the first Arne Dahl story. The second I'm less sure of. The detectives are acquiring soapy private lives and there are seven of them to keep track of. I want my detectives to detect, not spend their time getting laid/contacting long-lost children/being traumatized because their new boyfriend has leukaemia. If I wanted this kind of complication I'd be hooked into Dallas or Eastenders or some other dope like that.
