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!
