Re: BBC Original British Drama

I hope you're enjoying it: it's one of my all-time favourite books.

<wishful thinking>If Tinker, Tailor's a success do you think they'll make Honourable Schoolboy and Smiley's People to complete the trilogy?</wishful>

Think that's just the bits from the link I posted earlier edited in to one Sherlock specific video.

Starkers, I'm looking forward to Tinker, Tailor, too. Not long now.
I've been reading the book. I've heard this is a good thing to do before hand as the film might be confusing in places otherwise!

Has anyone seen trailers for a new supernatural show. I thought the name was Shade or Shades but I can't find anything on the Beeb website. Of course it could have been another channel. Anyone know owt?

I notice they've stuck one of those "BBC Original British Drama" logos on the ads for it now.

It was probably an oversight not to have it from the start.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

I'm not sure about the Fades. The trailers make it look a bit flashy and young for my liking...and yeah I realise that for every Spooks Code 9 BBC3 have given us a Being Human*, but still...

*Which I've still never seen!

I think they were seeing it as a mark of quality, then realised how shite Torchwood is and just stuck it on everything.

I gave up on Torchwood. It was too dire to persevere with. It's such a shame after Children of the Earth (which I purchased on your recommendation).

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Re: BBC Original British Drama

So.. I've been watching the new series of Law and Order UK and have enjoyed it quite a bit... But I wonder... Does anyone else find the lack of Dr. Who references a bit strange between Peter and Freema kind of disappointing?

Is this an American thing, where we get a tickle from beloved actors on one show, making veiled references to their previous shows (ala Nathan Fillion on Castle and all the Firefly related comments)?

Or have their been some and I'm just not watching closely enough?

Re: BBC Original British Drama

^Law & Order UK isn't a BBC show. I'd guess it would be down to the writers though, if the writers wanted to make references I'm sure they could have, but maybe they're not geeky enough to have wanted to make them.
