Things I’m particularly looking forward to in the new year? New Sherlock obviously, as well as Downton Abbey’s return, new Absolutely Fabulous after a multiyear absence, and finally getting my teeth into Doc Martin to catch up and get myself ready for new episodes this Spring.
Other things I’m excited to try? The Fades, Merlin Series 4, finally having the time to get into Misfits Series 3, the BBC’s new Great Expectations, a new series of Doctor Who in the Fall, Julian Fellowes’ Titanic miniseries, a new series of Skins, Stella, more Poirot, another series of Upstairs Downstairs, Call the Midwife, Birdsong, and I imagine a bunch of other things I’ve managed to leave off this list or that I didn’t even know existed. If 2011 was anything to go by, the new year will doubtless bring us some fantastic programs, both new and familiar.
What are you most looking forward to in British TV in 2012?
