One of my favourite quotes from Winston Churchill:
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to succeed that counts."
BBC4 is one of the few channels I am prepared to watch. Quality programmes. I refuse to get involved in Corrie, 'Enders or Emmingdale (whatever it's called). Give me Scandi Noir any day of the week.
One of the best over the last few years was Borgen, the Danish political drama. They used the Churchill quote in one episode. Thank goodness for the sub-titles.
On the question of Scandinavian dramas, I can't contain my excitement about the return of 'The Bridge'.
Season 3 leaves Saga (Sofia Helin) alone to fight the bad guys as she has shopped her partner, Martin Rodhe. They were brilliant together, and there is a rumour in the acting / directing world (I can't mention names and reveal my source, sorry) that Martin (superbly played by Kim Bodnia) might be back for season 4. No promises, but I'm sure they can find of way of giving Martin a King's pardon for getting rid of the man who murdered his son. Can't wait...
In the meantime, we can sit back and enjoy watching the fantastic Saga driving over the 16km Oresund Bridge listening to Johnny Cash in her Porsche. Now, if she'd like a new partner...
