In this first installment of a recurring series unearthing under-the-radar shows, here are three essentials: ‘Detectorists,’ ‘The A Word’ and ‘Back.’
Even in America, it’s difficult to flip a few channels on the remote and not see Nicola Walker these days. PBS is currently rerunning the final season Last Tango in Halifax, while Masterpiece is featuring new episodes of Ms. Walker’s excellent police drama Unforgotten (Season 2). Netflix still offers the remarkable River, as well as Collateral – each with outstanding supporting performances from this actress. Later this month, the Sundance Channel is set to begin “the Split” with Ms. Walker in a starring role as a divorce lawyer. That begins May 23rd, mark you calendar.
