Lynley1962, of course I did watch it on ZDF and I do think that they at least should broadcast it in stereo, so one can choose to listen to it dubbed or non-dubbed. But I think it's for contract reasons with the BBC that they are showing it dubbed only. ZDF can be viewed all over Europe via Satellite, thus an international broadcast that's watchable for everyone would actually take place once it's on ZDF.

Btw. Germany seems to like IL, we had a 15% marketshare (4,03 million viewers) for the first IL3 episode. ZDF also gave it a better timeslot (22:00 instead of 23:00 or later). They do follow their own politics here: show your own stuff at prime time, the rest has to take what's left (timeslot wise). Not too bad for that later hour on Easter Sunday I should say.

Cheers!

I did watch it too. I had nothing else to do. I know i will miss episodes 2 and 4 as i work these Sundaynights. Now i didn't have to listen to it i could concentrate on Nat. I just realized then that he was wearing jeans last season too. I think i was all the times to busy with the story to see it. I see that Lynley is populair in Germany, or do yuo like detectives there? I know that Lynley isn't that populair here. The raitings for Frost are much higher than these for Lynley. Everybody here know Jack Frost (even my boss) and when i mention Lynley no one knows what i am talking about.

I saw that the ZDF also had their own openinglines for Lynley if you know what i mean. It wasn't in English but in German. I think it's still strange to hear it all in German. I did watch it because the timeslot (as you said) was much better. I didn't see the episodes they show earlier this year. I am not gonna watch after midnight if i have to work the other day. If it was on Saturday i would have bue not on Sunday. I think it's a strange policy to give other series like Lynley the time that's left and not primetime. I am sure that moer people will see it when it's prime time. Here they show the detectives at 9.00 pm and that's fine with me. After that i have time to do some other things before i go to bed.

Hi, sorry I went on about the riding bit. yes I have 3 horses of my own who i have to exercise daily. I have been a horse rider all my life....started riding at 3 and now I'm 43!!!! oh god when you say it like that it sounds sooooooo old!!! Nat is an excellant horseman thats one of the reasons I've always liked him. The area where i live is where he lived as a child and as we're the same age group I can tell you that he did local pony club stuff and showjumping,he was quite the thing as a teenager. He usually attends Windsor Horse Show and has presented some trophies in showing classes. He is a very accomplished rider, I used to hunt - well all my life actually - although i don't now and im wary of telling people in case they get abusive. Nathaniel has hunted and cross countried too. The insurance obvioiusly won't allow it now and to be honest, like me, there comes a time when you don't jump the big fences any more, not as bouncy as we were in our younger days!! |Things break alot easier. I promise I won't natter on about horses anymore. ...except to tell you that my 3 babies are Irish sports horses and I love them to bits even if they do cost me every spare bit of money i have.

ALSO forgot to mention last night i saw a clip of this weeks - anybody else see it ? - its set in Westminster and seems to be all around that area and the embankment...where i work!!!!!!! so why didn't I see it being filmed (sob sob) and Nat looks terribly natty in that grey suit with a bright blue shirt and matching big trendy bright blue tie, very sexy.....and very trendy...now I THINK that Helens left him and he's 'coming out of himself' and slowly changing his image cos he's gone from being smart, sophisticated country meets city gent to trendy swish gentleman about town ! and ladies I LIKE IT!!!!!

I don't mind if you talk about horses. I do love them too. I do have a question for you./ This cross country is that a sort of race where horses have to take very difficult barriers or is that the military? I know hunting used to be a tradition in England and uit has been forbidden a few weeks (or months) ago. I don't like the military (if that is what it is). I think that is horse abuse to me. If i ever come to London (hopefully this year) i would love to see your horses. You have made me curious. I don't ride but i love these animals.

I did see the clip for next week's Lynley. I did see it last week after the show. I haven't seen it anymore after that. But i taped it as the video was still running after the episode. To bad you didn't see them film. Maybe they did some filming in the weekend and for the rest in the studio.

Hi, Cross country is where you jump a large course, basically, across the countryside, made from logs, all sorts of things, but its on a country track, not within an arena like in showjumping which I also have done for manyyears. In cross country you jump through water etc., It isn't cruel as long as the horse if fit enough to do it. The fences are meant to be the sort of fences you meet out hunting. They can be huge in the top class events like Burghley, Badminton, etc., Princess Anne used to do it, now her daughter Zara does. Its rated one of the most dangerous sports, i don't do it any more but i did for years and i can honestly say not one of my horses was ever hurt. I was. Frequently but no horse. I still do the odd showjumping course, Nat did a celebrity one a few years back at, i think it was the Horse of the Year Show, he was very good. Got a clear round. If I can pull out my old magazines I'll try and find something where he's mentioned. Another fine horseman for the English folk on here is Simon McCorkindale, plays Harry in Holby City. Hes a terrific horseman. As is Jenny Agutter, remember her in The Railway Children and lots and lots of other things since, she breeds coloured horses. (brown and white/black and white) Then Patrick Swayze, he breeds Arabs and shows them over in the States and here as well. And GUESS who's a brilliant show rider. William Shatner....brilliant horseman, rides american saddlebred horses and wins lots of trophies. My friend has a speicalist training centre in Kent where he specialises in training actors to ride, he taught Sean Bean for Sharpe and many others. One of my horses , my black gelding, was an horse extra in Braveheart and Rob Roy. ! End of horsey gossip I promise!!!!!
