For a quieter life
Without any wife,
He had her bumped off, pretty quick.
He now spends his leisure
At Majesty's pleasure
Mopping tiled floors in the nick.

Majesty's pleasure:  UK prisoners serve their time at Her Majesty's pleasure  
Nick:  UK slang for prison

    • I was typing and then realised what you meant. πŸ˜‚ Happy Valley is a great programme.


      • The keyword missing in my reply is ‘watching’, which lends a bit of sense to the whole thing. We’re actually watching Series 1 and 2 again right now as I’ve read that they’re taping Series 3 right now. It has to be one of the best character-driven police shows on telly (IMO). Line of Duty was good, but Happy Valley has such good dry humour and everyday truth in it.

      • It does….and isn’t it amazing that the villain is actually the vicar in Grantchester! What a good actor he is! πŸ˜‚


      • We’re recording it. I like to binge a whole series. Makes it easier to follow the plots. It’s an age thing! πŸ˜‚
