Not much going on with Virgin Media HD at the moment, so let's look ahead to the new autumn schedules and see what's coming to BBC HD over the new season.
First up is the comedy drama Mutual Friends starring Marc Warren, Alexander Armstrong and Keeley Hawes. It starts next Tuesday at 10pm (an hour later than its broadcast on BBC1) and it looks pretty good. I'm always a touch sceptical about "comedy drama" as they tend to feature little of either, but this may well be worth investing time in.
I'm still struggling to see why the BBC have bothered to shoot Hairy Bakers in HD, but a series more likely to make your eyeballs sparkle is Oceans. Click the link to find out more about another HD showcase documentary series.
Later in the season there's drama aplenty in high definition, with new adaptations of Dickens' Little Dorrit, Hardy's Tess of the D'Urbervilles and, er, Frank's The Diary of Anne Frank. On the documentary front there's Simon Schama's new series on the USA in election year.
Two new series that look great but I'm not sure if they're in HD are Stephen Fry In The USA (he visits every state - in a black cab!) and Kenneth Branagh in the Scandinavian detective drama Walllander. More information as soon as I find it.
