Well put, Annie!
Yes, I agree, watching series 3 cold might make things tricky, especially as it wasn't set in her home like the other 2, and you didn't get the back story so much in series 3.
Watching series 2 cold was ok, though.
I'll now have to be careful what I say, because after watching episode 1 of this latest series, I binge-watched the other 5 episodes on iPlayer, as the Beeb has made all episodes available now!
I don't want to give any spoilers!
(I expect I'll watch them again week by week, though!)
