« on: December 29, 2021, 02:21:18 AM »
"Deathlock," the Season 1 ep of MacGyver (the OS) that was filmed inside and on the grounds of Greystone, will air on H&I on Thursday, Dec. 30 at 2 pm in the East & West. Tremendous liberties were taken with the mansion's layout, and the star occasionally acts pretty stupid in this one.

Our condolences go out to the family and friends of long-time DS cousin LdyAnne, who passed away this week following surgery.  I always enjoyed seeing LdyAnne at Fests and think I will miss her laughter the most.  You may also have known her as the webmaster (or webmistress, as she preferred) of the CFDS Fan Club.  RIP, LdyAnne.

Season 4 of Unforgotten on Masterpiece began a couple of Sundays ago. Great show, talented cast, interesting new case, and DS fans can see Alec Newman in a small role as a suspect's partner. So far he has shown up in the 1st and 3rd installments. I actually didn't recognize him until tonight. Shame on me!
