While this winter storm is raging outside, I’m enjoying my morning coffee and the fact that I don’t have to go anywhere today. There’s a total whiteout right now, and the snow is accumulating on the balcony railing.
On Netflix, we watched an excellent series … a BBC production … called Happy Valley. The title is misleading, because no one was happy in that valley 🙂. We watched the first season quite some time ago, and were very pleased to see the announcement “new season added”. We did a bit of ‘binge watching’, so we’re already finished with the second, and it was just as good. It’s something with these British TV-series that always appeal to me — I can’t really pinpoint it, but the characters seem more ‘real’ … I can relate to them.
Anyway, throughout this second season of Happy Valley, there was a detective appearing [he wasn’t in the first], and as soon as I saw him, I recognised his face. I knew I’d seen him, and it wasn’t long ago either. My husband is extremely good with recognising faces, but he didn’t know.
I forced myself to not look him up … I wanted to come up with it on my own accord, but I had to cave. When I found out who he was, or rather, where I’d seen him, I just wanted to smack my forehead; it certainly hadn’t been long since I saw him … about one week! It was Mr. Mosely in Downton Abbey … Kevin Doyle!
