    Watched Shrerlock last night.  Like Misfits it is 100% engaging (can’t speak for Downton Abbey but everyone else swears by it) – once you start watching you can’t stop.  Snappy dialogue, good acting, a little off-beat / quirky and understatedly funny in parts (as only the British can do).  Good stuff!!  It is one of very few shows on series link on the Magic TV box……hopefully we see more of the modern British dramas on our screens.
