Well,

I don't like him very much as an actor, but this episode did suprise me and I found myself warming to him..

does anyone else have a favorite one??

I think, over all this series, so far that Patsy Kensit has probably been the best one for me upto yet!

But I am looking forward to LLB who I believe is the last one, in this series.

Hi,
I know that David Suchet is an aquired taste, personally I am waiting for Poirot to finally get it wrong and get thrown into prison :) But I found his travel into his ancestoral past, very interesting, and his research had a lot of twists and turns and shows how names change over time, so it re-enforces what we are told to do when researching, and that is to always allow for variants of our names.

Ohhh have you not had a play with BBC iplayer? I know its not much help now, but at least you can watch it on your PC but it will only be this one with David in,

Jerry springer was very interesting, and very sad.... (ainsley harriot is another guy I dont like much, but his was quite an eye opener)

I have to say this has probably been the best series so far

I only caught a small bit of it - tho I have recorded it (love that red R button:))

I agree that David Suchet is an acquired Taste - never really liked to watch him unfortunately.

As Julie said, I really liked Patsy Kensit (really showed what the east end of London was like) and also Jerry Springers which was very touching and sad.

I am amazed to see how upset people get over some ancestor they never knew - I now understand as I have seen it many times and have personally felt it, particularly when you find a related family ancestor who had died too early in whatever circumstances. :'(

Regards,
Dave

I very often find myself shouting at the TV... nooo you need to look on the census, or get his B/M/D cert !!!

but I guess that to the folks that have been researching alot of years then census/BMD's and where to look all come second nature, whereas we all know that you cannot research back to 1500 in 3 weeks flat!! (and not prove it, or do some research offline! :rolleyes: )
