UK Show Premieres

There are so many good upcoming shows that I can't contain myself right now LOL

In the interest of having a place to list them so I don't forget when they premiere, I'm doing it here on the blog.  Pay no attention to me and what I'm doing :)   Of course I'm also listing what is coming up if anyone is interested in watching.

Be forewarned, I like ALL types of genres and still really enjoy a scary movie, show, so I'll let you know which of these fit that theme.

The Fades - BBC 3  (SCARY, even the trailer is freaky to watch)
Premieres Wednesday September 21st

Iain De Caestecker is Paul, a young man who is haunted by apocalyptic dreams that neither his therapist or best friend, Mac, can provide answers for. Worse still, Paul is starting to see the Fades – the spirits of the dead – all around him.

They're everywhere but they can't be seen, smelt, heard or touched by living beings. But now an embittered and vengeful Fade has found a way to break the barrier between the dead and the living and Paul, Mac and their friends and family are all right in the eye of the storm.

But the most terrifying twist is yet to come – the fate of humanity rests in the hands of the two friends who already have enough trouble getting through a day in one piece, let alone saving the world.
Cast:  Natalie Dormer (Anne Boleyn on the Tudors), Lily Loveless (Skins)


Downton Abbey - ITV
Season 2 Premieres September 18 in the UK, January 12 in the US

Second series picks up the story in 1916, two years into a war which will irrevocably change the genteel world of Downton Abbey’s refined inhabitants.
From the opening scene, the stark contrast in tone is apparent. Instead of seeing Carson the butler (Jim Carter) ironing his master’s newspaper, the audience is greeted by the noise, mud and chaos of the Somme.
Matthew Crawley (Dan Stevens), the middle class heir to the Downton estate, is in the trenches, bravely leading his men into battle.


Young Soldiers -  BBC 3  (Documentary)
Premieres tomorrow, Wednesday 15th

Series which charts the lives of four new British Army recruits on their journey from day one basic training through to frontline combat in Helmand


The Body Farm - BBC One
Premiered Tuesday September 13th

Crime drama series following Eve Lockhart, one of Britain's leading forensic pathologists, and her team of scientists at a state-of-the-art forensic research facility.

The Marvellous Mrs Beeton - BBC Two
Premiere date not yet confirmed, but rumors that it will be September 21st

Best-selling author and food writer Sophie Dahl tells the compelling story of Mrs Beeton – one of the most famous food writers in British cooking. Mrs Beeton's Book Of Household Management was once a must-have on the wedding list of every aspirational Victorian bride and it became an instant best-seller when it was first published in 1861.


Home Cooking Made Easy - BBC Two
Premiere date to be confirmed, week September 24-30

Lorraine Pascale is back, spreading her culinary wings in a new feel-good series, Home Cooking Made Easy. Sharing her delicious home cooking recipes, secrets and passion, Lorraine uses her know-how to inspire everyone to home cook the food they love. The series kicks off with easy recipes for comfort food, including a cosy deep orange and seasonally spicy roasted butternut squash soup with chilli and ginger, and two chocolate treats – chocolate marshmallow brown sugar fudge and peppermint creams sugar rush.


I'm looking forward to all of these, it's exciting to have something to look forward to on TV :)
