  1. You are right, a lot of BBC series are pretty short, with only 3 or 6 episodes a year. Highly popular shows, like Downton Abbey and Doctor Who, go longer, but rarely longer than 13 episodes. For the past couple of years, Doctor Who's season has been split over the fall (6 episodes) and the spring (another 6 or 8 episodes). I think reality shows go longer though I haven't watched any.

  2. I haven't watched a lot of Doctor Who, but loved Fawlty Towers and The IT Crowd. Someday I need to watch all of the Black Adders...

    I liked Neverwhere quite bit. I thought the actors were excellent. I am Mr, Croup, and this is Mr. Vandemar... heh!

  3. Ditto on Fawlty Towers and I also loved Chef, which was another of those 6 episode season shows.

    Mr. Croup and Mr. Vandemar ... two of the creepiest henchmen ever. My mental picture of Mr. Croup is a bit smoother and more sophisticated than what I saw in that picture.
