season 3 finishes on BBC2 afternoons on Friday. I can see last week's episodes on "sky on demand", not iplayer as you mention which is frustrating.


It's interesting that you can't watch them on iplayer and I think you are also uk based. I have a friend who lives in a cable area and has virgin. He was most upset that his version of catch up through virgin, only recorded the immediate previous episode of something he wanted to see and not the ones before. Having googled he found that that was what virgin did on some progs and that some people felt virgins catch up was a token catch up and not the full thing.
I would have thought that in an ideal world - which we don't have - that catch up should mean the same thing regardless of how we access it!

If you have a smart tv you can view through the bbc iplayer app.

I can also watch player:
on my tv through the app,
dvd player via the app,
sky bbc iplayer,
firestick via the app,
pc via the app,
phone
ipad   <<< preferred choice because the sound is better through headphones!
 :o

note:  Sky iplayer is also restricting the length of time you can catchup

You are quite correct. My apologies. I'd misread my tv listing guide. Really pleased series 5 is coming on straight away and we find out what happens next!

oh dear !  I`ve been watching this on Drama channel series 1, so I was looking to see if they will show series 2;  I accidently read a preview on an episode so now know of at least 1 happy ending. I`m kicking myself because my husband actually found series 1 on BBC one afternoon  but I didn`t watch it, so I could have recorded all the episodes and watched them at my leisure.

The good thing is that I have something to look forward to each week !

The previous series have been repeated every year prior to the start of the new series.

So as series 5 has just started, series 4 has just been repeated on BBC2 and is still there on iplayer until 28th March or thereabouts.

I don't know if Drama will start showing series 2 after 1 finishes.

You might want to look at the series 1-4 box set on Amazon which is currently 22.99 or 1-3 boxset and then record series 5 on catchup for this weeks episodes and record next weeks to save for later.

We check amazon prices with the camelcamelcamel.com site and the 1-4 box set was as low as 16 in November. I expect the prices have risen because of the current showing.

That`s interesting thank you.

That`s not a bad price for 4 series, and a good idea to record series 5 on catchup and next week for later. I don`t really want to jump straight to series 5, I would hate to miss out !!
