- Richard Coyle, Samantha Janis and Ian Richardson. Coyle is John Strange - a defrocked priest hunting demons in contemporary Britain.
I really enjoyed it, too.
Which reminds me:
Sea of Souls
Plus if The Tomorrow People gets two entries for the different shows, then you need a second Randall & Hopkirk Deceased.
I think I'll fix a few of the single entry ones, so 2 Doctor Who, 3 V, etc. since many are very different from each other.
I've also added The Highwayman to the list.
See if you split Doctor Who you'll get complains from the insane "It's Season 30!!!" brigade.
Have you heard? Because the show has a new production team, and a new Doctor, Moffat's first season will be... Series 1!
I suspect this is a BBC decision, rather than something Moffat wanted.
That's just an internal thing though, isn't it? I can't imagine 2entertain wanting to go to market with "Doctor Who: The Other Complete First Series".
I'd hope so. Either way, the Who fans on the net will go 'splodey.
I'm getting very antsy and want to see Moffat-run Smith-starring Doctor Who now.
RTD has done a lot, but I'm over stories that don't make sense with enormous plotholes. I know the old series had them, but I expect better from any series in this day and age.
That was one I always wanted to see... must go searching for it again.
Good luck tracking it down. J's been ripping the long-play VHS recordings we made off UK tv before they degrade any further, as the only place I've seen a DVD available online looked kind of dodgy..
Just to add some more Australian SF television...
Elly and Jools
Fatty and George
And New Zealand...
The Kids From OWL
The Killian Curse
A New Tomorrow
Under the Mountain
And some British children's SF...
Box of Delights
The Chronicles of Narnia
Willo the Wisp (A)
Does Danger Mouse (A) count?
Damn names... can anyone remember a UK I think children's series which involved a girl who was very emotionally null and I think a yin yang symbol on a ring (not related to the Maurice Gee stuff) There may have been fraternal twins involved. Not much to go on I know.

Damn now that childrens series is giving me flashbacks to whatever the hell it is.
There's also a North American series called Operation Adam or Project Adam or somesuch, from my childhood, but I can barely remember it.
with Danger Mouse a candidate, would we also get
Roger Ramjet (A)
Count Duckula (A)?
And more recently,
Dexter's Laboratory (A)
Samurai Jack (A)
The Power Puff Girls (A)?
Must put in a vote for Henson's Storyteller in Angriest's poll if it counts, as this list would suggest (along with things like Bewitched, Sabrina and Touched By An Angel!)
A few animated ones.
Batman : The Animated Series
Defenders of the Earth
Masters of the Universe
Christ, if they list Touched By An Angel why not add Rainbow Brite and My Little Pony!
-Chuck (fits at least as well as MacGyver)
I found MacGyver and Chuck both odd entries. Love them both though, so it's all good by me :)
'Sky'! Christ, this is the first mention I've seen of that show since it aired here in the...1970's? I was beginning to think I'd dreamt it. Creeped me out as a kid; the titular character was so weirdly alien, in every sense of the world, and the incredibly downbeat ending - especially for a kid my age - was completely distressing.
One show to add, can't remember the title, dammit: it aired perhaps five or six years ago, lasted one season. A character (played by John Goodman), dies in an accident and gets his brain placed inside a laboratory-created superbody; the trade-off for getting a second chance is that he's forbidden by his goverment 'minders' from contacting his family, or from going AWOL for any reason (and failure to tow the line means termination). Very dark and surprisingly good, shame it never came back. The title might have been something like 'Time and Again'.
Ooh, and don't forget that there are now TWO different productions of 'The Survivors'. Not sure if the new one's been screened yet.
The show with Goodman in the first episode was Now and Again, and yes, it was great. Eric Close played the new body Goodman's brain got transferred into. I taped them all :)
I forgot about the other version of Survivors. Have heard it's crap.
Star Blazers (A) (fire the Wave Motion Gun!)
