  1. Much as I like Dr Who, I’d love to see Spooks win best drama series – S6 & S7 were fantastic.

    It’d be nice if one of the tv stations bothered to show the BAFTAs – but there’s not enough American content for it to qualify for our screens I guess…

  2. I’ve heard that it’s interesting to note that BBC3 in the UK have just decided to rebroadcast all of The Wire after Sky’s original broadcast. There’s something to be said for those limeys.
    Perhaps Nine will add it to their “Entertainment” inventory. 😉

  3. slowlylu – I second that. The Wire deserved far more award recognition than it got. Season 5’s great by the way, a fitting conclusion.
