I'm sure I saw an advert for brand new Lip Service just yesterday.

Seriously, how does that shit have any viewing numbers? Although I'd guess having watched the first couple that it's amazingly cheap to make - looks shoddy, clearly dragged a writer in off the street and the actors will take peanuts.

And it starts 20th April!

It must be said, I did help contribute to the viewing numbers of S1. In my defense, I will watch any old crap and I'd much prefer The Fades to come back.

Add me to that list... Lip Service was bad but i couldn't look away. I watched the entire series and then rewatched it on blu ray. I'm actually quite looking forward to seeing what they've done with S2. It's been a VERY long time coming as filming wrapped months ago. I'm also a Heather Peace fan so please don;'t judge me too harshly!

As for The Fades, I agree this is a real shame, I watched the entire series on DVD and thoroughly enjoyed it. I imagine another channel will pick it up at some point tbh.

I really hope you're right on that.

And given some of my viewing I could never criticise anyone on their bad TV crack habit

But surely the internet has invalidated the need to add bad acting to that viewing desire?

I like seeing the boobs of actresses.

It's a weird thing I have

Guilty

It helps if it's an actress I've heard of, though....

They've changed their minds and dumped rubbish before though - that appalling Phoo Action was commissioned even before it was shown in the pilot strand but they thankfully decided to reverse that decision (and go with the brilliantly received Being Human).

Our best hope at the moment is that Bafta blows a raspberry at the Beeb and gives it its deserved best drama gong. That'd be amusing at least.

The BBC response to my e-mail could be summarised in one word - tough. Pity I didn't remind them of Survivors, Bonekickers and Outcasts and really remind them of the rarity of them getting a programme right and just how often they get it wrong.

I finished watching it last night. A little late of course, but liked it a an awful lot and would have liked to have seen more. Sort of thing that only we (in the UK) could produce.
