The Christmas Day episode in 2009 was all over the place and a few of the Tennant adventures didn't quite live up to the hype, but in the main Tennant was far better than Smith. However, there are...

Too right, DW might get 6 million for its showing against TXF, but will probably add another 2 million on catch up. Also who really cares about old XF episodes, I doubt anyone cares now what...

Probably, I think with catch up services we can add another million at least to Saturday's episodes. Maybe I am a bit prejudiced as I wasn't a huge fan of Smith, but I know some older fans weren't...

I think ITV has had a bit of a bounce back since the recession, certainly their dramas are making money and the Cowell shows are very profitable. However, like British Leyland found after a terrible...

I often wonder if the ITV 2 name had been used for Channel 4, what the channel that is now ITV 2 would be called.

Pertwee divides fans, some people don't like this modern day Britain theme to his stories and the BBC trying to make it like The Avengers on a BBC budget, but for all I like Troughton, the series was...

I think Doctor Who will gather audiences as it goes on. A lot of people I know who remember the old series from the seventies like the idea of an older, darker Doctor. Smith was too wacky, a bit too...

Let's hope the creepy Fred Vermorel stays away from her gigs as his biography about her was a sinister book about stalking and he became too close for comfort. This is probably why KB won't allow...

Some of us older gentlemen remember John Rickman, who used to always doff his hat at the start of a race meeting. I really do miss Rickman, John Oaksey and Brough Scott who made racing fun to watch....

My two nieces are 17 and 21 and they don't watch BB, considering it old fashioned. They err more towards Geordie Shore and The Kardashians. I think BB will have its biggest following in the 26-34 age...

It will happen one day, probably when the name fades from most people's consciousness, but not at the moment. ITV could get into big trouble and understandably the BBC wouldn't touch it.

Itv 2

Not a debate about the current channel, but a button that was often seen on seventies television sets as Britain awaited its fourth channel, which would almost certainly be given to the IBA. However,...

I think this is too controversial for ITV and should be pulled as he was a despicable pervert who hoodwinked people for decades. I can understand dramas about Hughie Green, whose reputation is very...

We can rely on Robin for the facts. I do recall the ITV strike of 1979( bloody cricket all day on BBC1) wiping out the Ebor Meeting and the St Leger. Luckily the strike broke out after the Derby and...

I wonder if it's with the older end of the age group who started watching it as teens and have kept up the habit. It's still a demographically important show for Channel 5, as what they have on now...
