“Sherlock delivered the TV event of the year with three perfect episodes,” said RadioTimes.com editor Tim Glanfield. “Nothing got people talking more than that cliffhanger series finale – and that was as true here at Radio Times as it was in offices and school playgrounds around the country.
“Despite being shown 11 months ago, Sherlock won the vote quite easily,” Glanfield added. “Virtually all of us had it in our personal top fives. It was simply staggeringly good TV – and best of all it’s British!”
In third place was Twenty Twelve, the show that was allegedly a rip-off of ABC’s The Games. Also in the top ten was The Thick of It, returning soon to ABC1 and Downton Abbey, soon on Seven.
Girls will also return to Showcase in January while the UK original The Great British Bake Off has its Aussie version soon on Nine.
