^^ Is this the same Doctor Who that's won the Hugo award 4 years out of the last 5? ;)

For context the original Star Trek, TNG and B5 all won 2 apiece.

Perhaps not just popular here?

I must...

^^ Depends on how they pitch it.

They need to attract a broader audience than just the people who were watching nuBSG at the end, as those numbers were near-cancellation-worthy anyway.

Doctor Who is predominantly a kid's show, that has a broader appeal to adults as well. Both Misfits and Being Human play to a much narrower audience.

I enjoy Doctor Who, as it's largely something...

Nikita's on the bubble, started off strong, but ratings are nose-diving, including the 18-49 demo.

Well it was Star Trek, they were never going to completely leave the standalone episodes alone.

To be fair though, if they had have done that then we'd have missed out on stuff like The Visitor and...

FNL is one of the finest teen/sporting shows of this generation, yet it's practically unheard of over here. To be fair, it's not massively better known over there.

To be fair, I only watched the first half of season one, and gave up, twice. Might have got better after that, but I can't be bothered to try again.
