Taking a Few Days Off! Can You Suggest a British Mystery Series!

Calla Lily - first of the season

I am taking a little break for the rest of the week.

I will spend some time trying to catch up with e-mails and blog reading and dipping into Instagram - but mostly my time will be spent in crafty play and watching British mystery series on Netflix!

I have watched all episodes available of "Midsommer Murders", "Inspector Lewis" , "Dangerous Davies" and "Rosemary and Thyme".

Any suggestions? Recommendations? Favorites?
