Just lately, my TV viewing seems to be punctuated with cries of “Look, it’s thingy off …erm …who is it Bob? I can’t remember” I do love the Euro-cop-dramas on BBC4 on a Saturday evening, but I do wish they wouldn’t let their actors stray into British mysteries.
Lars Dittmann Mikkelsen, from The Killing, turned out to be the baddie ‘Magnussen’ on Sherlock Series 3 recently.
And then Birgitte Hjort Sorensen from Borgen popped up in Miss Marple’s Endless Night and yet again in that bizarre Midsomer Murders UK/Danish crossover the other week
And on Tuesday night, Caroline Proust, the French cop from Engrenage[Spiral]was there on a tropical island, for Death in Paradise
I get so confused
And I seem to lose the thread of the current mystery while I struggle trying to recognise who it is, and where I have seen them before! Do you think they should put subtitles on screen saying ‘yes, this is that Danish woman from Borgen’ or ‘he may have been a good guy in The Killings, but he is really acting suspiciously in Midsomer’
