    watched all of the full episodes of Poirot available, as well as the Sherlock Holmes episodes.  I love David Suchet and Jeremy Brett as Poirot and Holmes.  Enjoy!

      I'm up to Season 5, Episode 2 (next on the queue) in my Bookmarks file.  I spent some time collecting all the links for the episodes in chronological order a few weeks ago, and now I try to go through one or two episodes per evening if I can.

      I, too, love David Suchet!  He's a marvelous Poirot.

      There are a couple of Miss Marple episodes on YouTube - or, at least those very few were all that popped up when I was getting the Poirot links.  When I make it through some 10-12 seasons of Poirot, I'll start in on the others.

      I am not that much into Sherlock Holmes except occasionally.

      Before Hulu put them in the Plus section, I watched all their available episodes of Wire in the Blood.  The other show I got into a while back was Endgame (seems to have been made for Hulu???); there is only Season I, 13 episodes (not sure if they're going to have a Season 2 or not, but I hope they do).  I think Hulu recently put them on their Plus section (fees, of course), or took them off the Plus section.  I forget which.

        Endgame episodes on Hulu, as well as the Wire in the Blood episodes.  Over on YouTube you might want to check out a channel with the name of Nick Max, which has full episodes of Inspector Linley, Inspector Morse, Inspector Lewis, Zen (Rufus Sewell), among other British programming that is quite excellent.

        I haven't had a television for the past year so all of my entertainment viewing comes from the internet.  Best wishes.

          You listed almost all shows I've avidly followed.  Some are now on YouTube.  I found some Morse episodes last night when I discovered a British series I've never heard of called Rosemary and Thyme.  I like that new feature of YouTube where they have the full show or movie at one sitting, not broken into +/- ten minute segments.  Hulu has a few episodes of Inspector Lewis, and I suspect YouTube probably has them, too - better to view without ads on YouTube.

          Really, I have reached saturation point on stupid ads; while shorter commercial breaks are on Hulu than on the network web sites, they're all just as annoying..., and in many cases the new law where ads are supposed to keep the volume down just has not functioned - at least not on Hulu.

            episodes.  Love those gals.  Like I mentioned above, check out Nick Max on YouTube, if you "subscribe" to his "channel" (which of course is free - like everything on YouTube), you get access to a good number of full episodes of the great shows I mentioned above.  Just type in Nick Max in the search box and you'll see Nick Max - 104 Videos, about the fifth choice down.  You can view all the videos he has on YouTube, most are full episodes.
