I don't know what made me think of it but I was thinking of that show "Do they mean us?" which was about how other countries report on news in the UK .

it was a fascinating show .

anyone else got shows they'd like to see brought back?

The Bill. Although less soapy, like it ended up towards the end.

I think the idea of bringing programmes back is partly a combination of nostalgia and dissatisfaction with contemporary programmes. Revivals in my opinion never match the originals.

Dad's Army, with the original cast. I love zombie films.

Ooh, definately.

Mongrels
I guess you could say for sitcoms though that atleast some got a series or two and we can get them on DVD etc so still can get some joy out of them.

None, lets move forwards, not backwards.

The Secret Life of Edgar Briggs (repeats will never be shown as David Jason has refused permission, he thinks it would harm his acting credibility, but I really liked that show).

And the Royal bodyguard didn't



Ah I'd love for them to do an adults version of funhouse. Please there is millions of adults between the ages of 20-35 who would definitely be up to do it, I'm front of the queue!!

The Edgar Wallace Mysteries

Not strictly a TV series but I think any revival would be.

I'll go with that! With todays amazing CGI - they could re-create anything in the past or future. They could introduce two handsome guys getting involved with their (guest-appearance women) each week. Could be fun!
It'll be nice to get away from this Dracula/Werewolf fetish that people seem to have at the moment!

Time Team

This series is the last after 20 excellent years. I am gutted.

I think there will still be Time Team Specials but that's not quite the same. I always looked forward to January as I knew that TT was back on our screens.

Sniff sniff
