Y'know what amuses the heck out of me - how BBC can make a 14 episode "series" take two years to tell and yet you can have a modern American tv 'season' of maybe 22-23 episodes and have do the same in less than a year. I'm thinking of a show like Sons of Anarchy which has quite a bit of stunt work, sfx, and a very large cast of regular characters.
It seems to me like that lattermost - at least when comparing to Doctor Who - is part of why. Doctor Who has a regular cast of two, who are in most every scene. With a show with a larger cast, you can give actors a break while continuing to shoot; you can also shoot two episodes simultaneously without making one of them "character light".
