Re: BBC Original British Drama

As a Herbert fan The Secret of Crickley Hall is interesting, not that great a book mind you so be interesting to see what they do with it. A proper version of Haunted at last would have been preferable (the film was terrible, missed the whole point of the book imo) and Creed would have been a blast!

Never did watch the LAst Detective, which given I'm a Davison fan as well is v poor form...

I just watched the first season of Luther and enjoyed it. Idris Elba was great but Paul McGann got a nice meaty part in the final episode which I quite liked.
The second season is even better, although shorter. It's basically two feature length episodes, each split into two. BBC have commissioned another set but I don't know when it will be appearing.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Looks like the third series of Luther is on the cards for next year, 4 more episodes. Also looks like Being Human and The Fades are gonna be cancelled, because the BBC have prioritised drama on BBC One and BBC Three only gets to have 1 drama.

The focus on BBC1 drama also came with the admission that the commitment to drama on BBC3 would be downgraded, with either Being Human or Lip Service axed after their next series or no recommission for The Fades.

Being Human doesn't look good for this season anyway. Too many changes. We fear change.

People get worried when we post next to each other Guy. They think we'll rip open a hole the fabric of reality or something.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

That's not good.

Boy scouts make fire by rubbing two sticks together.

but if theoretical m-theory boffins work out that they can build star-drives from rubbing out posts together, they're tell their masters, who will tell their masters and so on until MI5 kicks your door in, black bags you, ties your wrists to your ankles and readies you for transport to one of their secret prisons.

There's a time to be brash and boastful about how all-powerful you are, but it's not on the internet when there's echelon from a 150 countries trying to decide if you're noise or of some value.

Well it's obvious the series that'll continue is the ones about lesbians copping off anyway.

Re: BBC Original British Drama

Wait.

Who died at the end of last season.

What?

I have memories that don't make sense and can't be real.

Nina?

As is someone else apparently, I don't watch it but doesn't sound like many of the original cast will be left now.
