PLACED ON MODERATED MEMBERSHIP 6/11/12 - Sorry, the spam on LJ is getting beyond a joke. But have no fear! All genuine fans simply send me a quick PM with a note of your shows and I'll add you ASAP. - roseveare
This is a community devoted to being fannish about British crime dramas and TV detectives. All kinds of fanfiction, fan vids, fan art, and meta are not only welcome but actively encouraged. After all, our purpose is to promote more of the above!
Feel free to make an intro post when you join. Tell us your favourite shows!
The List of Shows
We are restricting the community to shows that don't already have a reasonably active fandom online, so for eg. no Life on Mars please.
Historical: Cadfael - Brother Cadfael (Derek Jacobi) Campion - Albert Campion (Peter Davison) Foyle's War - DCS Christopher Foyle (Michael Kitchen) Heat of the Sun - Albert Tyburn (Trevor Eve) Jericho - DI Michael Jericho (Robert Lindsay) Lord Peter Wimsey - Lord Peter Wimsey (Ian Carmichael/Edward Petherbridge) & Harriet Vane (Harriet Walter) Murder Rooms - Dr. Joseph Bell (Ian Richardson) & Arthur Conan Doyle (Robin Laing/Charles Edwards)
Psychological: Cracker - Dr Eddie 'Fitz' Fitzgerald (Robbie Coltrane) Touching Evil - DI Dave Creegan (Robson Green) & DI Susan Taylor (Nicola Walker) Wire in the Blood - Dr Tony Hill (Robson Green) & DI/DCI Carol Jordan (Hermione Norris) Murder Prevention - DCI Patrick Goddard (Conor Mullen) Luther - DCI John Luther (Idris Elba)
We're hoping to get 'sponsors' for each show subcategory to create 1) an introductory or 'pimping' post for each show, and 2) a resource index post listing links of interest - and these will be linked from the userinfo or a separate, 'main' index post.
Fanfic and Fic Challenges
Once we're fully up and running there will be periodic challenge prompts posted. Let us know if you have any more ideas for things you would like to see here!
Please place large or multiple pictures behind a cut-tag, and also please cut-tag all fic posts and provide an accurate rating (outside the cut tag) along with the following information form:
TITLE: AUTHOR: RATING: ***unrated fic posts with adult content will be deleted*** FANDOM: SUMMARY: PAIRINGS IF ANY:
[NB. Please also give ratings if you are posting a link to fic elsewhere, or posting a reccommendation!]
