Spunky Sally...Piper


Always a step or two behind the times, I just stumbled onto the big format changes happening at PBS concerning their hugely popular Mystery! series and their 'jewel in the crown' Masterpiece Theatre.

I suppose lately [for the past year it looks like] I've been more interested in what I'll be receiving from Netflix, or watching my favorite classic British comedies on our PBS station for the umpteenth million time. But it looks like everything has been kickstarted with a vengeance over at PBS, and although I want to kick myself in the rear about missing some fabulous programs on the new Masterpiece Classic from January, I can still make up for my 'off in another world'-ness by catching the last show of the Masterpiece Mystery! season.

If anyone like me has been out of the loop and is totally confused by all this, you can hop over to PBS and catch up. I'll also muse about the changes in a little more depth in a future post. Gotta take things slow you know, and spend some time absorbing things. *absorb*


Anyway I can still watch Billie Piper, who Doctor Who fans know as Rose Tyler, take on the bad guys while dressed up in late-19th century Victorian garb as Sally Lockhart, in The Shadow in the North. Based on the book by Philip Pullman, this show will air this Sunday, September 28th at 8:00 pm central time. It also boasts a cute co-star in JJ Feild, American born but English bred.

Billie Piper should be in the news again come October, when her first child with husband Laurence Fox is supposed to be due.
