Apart from the one I'm married to, no. That's shockingly true actually.

I'm writing an audio sitcom with a friend at the moment (to be podcasted) and it occurred to me last night that the entire cast is male, even though we have a few female chars.

Now I'm convinced we're destined for the big thyme.
Just get in the damn frock and step up to the microphone. And the beard stays.

She does consider our silly "sitcom" intellectually beneath her, I think.

Maybe they should just have him redub his lines with his accent?

Next year House will get a stroke that will leave him with an unexplained British accent

It's been known to happen to some people

I can't say I'd noticed it 'flopping', but I guess it isn't nearly as much of a hit as it was in the US. But then, neither is ER, and that's still more than successful enough for British TV. Especially given that it's on Five, a channel that's still a myth in parts of the south west; I guess it depends on your definition of success.

I'm British and I love House - I know quite a few British people who do too... unfortunately for Five - no-one I know actually watches it on tv.

I thought it was doing fairly well.

Still waiting for Season 5 to start here though.

According to the barb site it's usually fairly high (like top 5)on Five's weekly chart, so I'd think it is.
It won't be far off, it's usually in the winter/spring season, round about feb/march.
