British mystery TV shows/movies?

Great British mystery television shows/movies? My girlfriend and I are both rabid fans of good, old-fashioned British whodunnits. Nothing like a rainy Sunday curled up in the sofa to watch an insufferable amateur detective line up a bunch of eccentric upper-class Brits by the fireplace to expose their innermost red herrings: Poirot, Miss Marple, Jonathan Creek, Cadfael, Inspector Alleyn, Sherlock Holmes, Gosford Park -- we have pretty much watched them all, including numerous Agatha Christie movie adaptations. What else is out there? Must be British, or feature mainly Brits; extra points for smoking jackets, quaint little villages in Dorset, vintage automobiles and funny little Frenchmen. (We don't like modern police procedurals that much, though; Inspector Morse is all right, but not quite our cup of tea.)

Who is this mysterious radio voice?

They have a guy on NPR sometimes who gives these brief (maybe under 15 minutes?) meditations on some topic or another, and he has a fun Slavic accent, and sort of a gruff but friendly voice. Also, I have this impression that he lives in NYC. I wonder what his name is. I always seem to turn NPR on in the middle of his shtik and don't catch his name. Does anyone know who I'm talking about?

How Did This Cat Die?

Yesterday afternoon one of the neighbours knocked on the door to tell me there was a dead cat in our driveway.

CS Royalty?

CS-Royalty? So I was eating lunch in Williamsburg and struck up a conversation with a guy who was about 65 or so, and he claimed the following. - He was one of 7 developers to port DARPAnet to commercial architectures - He had worked with almost every president since starting up work - He has been in a Fortune 500 company as an IT higher-up and had met with Bill Gates (and told him "his product sucked") - He went to University of Colorado and taught at MIT His name came out something like Larry Sand-berg, but very uncertain about the last name. I'm interested in seeing if this is complete BS, or some element of truth.
