I'm looking forward to listen the third series in a short period...! I hope it will be prepared soon...
I used to listen it like a radio station programme in my car and on my mp3 when I'm cooking for my family.
I hope one day I will be able to speak english fluently and use it  correctly as a doctor in a foreign country.
Thanks for helping me a lot.
Have a nice day for all listeners.
