  1. Did anyone else watch the BTK killer doco ? It appeared to end before the doco actually was meant to …leaving out when he was actually arrested …someone accidentally deleted the final segment maybe ?!!!

  2. If I want to watch a ‘Great British Mystery’ I would rather binge it than suffer all the ads in Seven. That is why ABC does so well on Friday nights. No ads.

  3. It amazes me that Ch7 keep promoting these great UK mystery dramas, yet continue to ‘burn them off’ with doubles, and commencing them late. I know we all have PVR’s but we can’t keep recording doubles and triples of everything!

      1. That used to work. Doesn’t seem to any more. Confession ran 4th in the slot with 2nd ep just breaking 200k. It probably doesn’t help that Seven keeps promoting “special events” that are mediocre TV at best, then ends up burning them off late at night.

  4. Agreed, The Confession was really great. Anything with Martin Freeman in a leading role is generally worth checking out.
    But decision to open with double (back to back) eps is questionable – meaning the second finished well after 10.30pm. Most people (generalisation I know, but sure broadly true) are normally making tracks for bed a little before then – particularly those with early starts, kids, and so on. I know there’s PVRs, catch-up app options etc, but even so…
