Here's what you've been saying...

I’ve stared to watch this drama, and I kind of like it. Seems to me like a Netflix series, plus is teaching me English, and is why I’m watching it. Hope you understand what I’ve wrote.😬

Ignacio - Mexico

I've been enjoying all videos from this series. I think this is very useful because they speak like real people. We know in real life English isn't spoken as clear as teachers do. Like Helen Belbin says: "we don't just speak in well formed sentences".

Wilson - Colombia

It seems interesting. I love   watching  detective dramas, because the science is applied to figure out who is the guilty, that's very exciting

Fanny - Ecuador

The new drama is really nice. I'm sure we are going to have a great show as always.

Haroldo - Brazil

I'm loving this new drama. I think it really has a mysterious atmosphere and quite different from usual BBC learning English contents which I always enjoy doing. I find it interesting that Jamie watched "The Crown" and "The Question Time" the night before. (What? The Question Time!?) Is it something to do with their disappearance?  

Asami - Scotland
