witf Program Points for Jan. 19

Written by Fred Vigeant, Director of Programming and Promotions for TV and Radio | Jan 16, 2014 3:57 PM



This Sunday is huge! I would say super, but that description is used for another Sunday tradition. However, Sundays are a big deal on witf over the next few weeks. 

We begin with an encore broadcast of Last Tango in Halifax at 7:00pm.  In case you missed the series this past fall, you'll meet Celia and Alan, childhood sweethearts now widowed and reunited after 60 years. witf continues the sequence with a repeat of the previous week's Downton Abbey followed by the new episode at 9:00pm.

Then...what everyone has been waiting for, the return of Sherlock Masterpiece Mystery: Sherlock will air this Sunday at 10:00pm and continue for two more weeks. We'll also repeat Sherlock Thursdays at 9:00pm. 

Want to dish about Downton? Check out witf's new weekly water-cooler discussion on Downton Abbey. 

Just a reminder, if you're catching the repeat of Downton Abbey at 8:00pm this Sunday, this episode contains scenes which may not be suitable for all audiences. Viewer discretion advised. Parental guideline rating: TV-14, V.
