So much for Amanda Redman saying back in the day she would only do a couple of series so it didn't get stale.
Couple of dozen... How many series has new tricks had now anyway?

Anyone who's interested, New Tricks has just been picked up for 2 more series.
God what will it take to kill that show.
A drop in viewers. Apparently it was given 2 more series cos the ratings improved this series.
The government really needs to do something about unemployment in the UK.

If I'm not on nights I will watch spooks and record Downton, so I can FF the ads.

I'll probably give them both a try, neither live, and give up on both of them within a week or two.,

Re: BBC Original British Drama

I rarely watch anything live, so they need to update their expectations of viewing. *nods*

Looks like The Body Farm starts on the 13th at 9 btw.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

And another commission has been announced... Ripper Street I got excited when I saw the first word and thought Joss Whedon's BBC Project had finally come to pass, but alas, no. It's a Jack The Ripper thing...

Tiger Aspect Productions and co-producer Lookout Point have been commissioned by Danny Cohen, Controller BBC One and Ben Stephenson, Controller Drama Commissioning, to make 8-part drama series, Ripper Street for BBC One.
Created by writer Richard Warlow (Mistresses, Waking The Dead), Ripper Street is an extraordinary new drama set in the East End of London in 1889, during the aftermath of the "Ripper" murders. The action centres around the notorious H Division – the police precinct from hell – which is charged with keeping order in the chaotic streets of Whitechapel.
Ripper Street explores the lives of characters trying to recover from the Ripper's legacy, from crimes that have not only irretrievably altered their lives, but the very fabric of their city. At the drama's heart our detectives try to bring a little light into the dark world they inhabit.
Danny Cohen, Controller, BBC One, says: "Ripper Street is a gripping new drama for BBC One. Set against the backdrop of a fevered historical London, I believe it has the quality and intensity to be a hit with BBC One viewers."
