Five British TV Shows to Catch on DVD

by Nick Zaino, posted Oct 3rd 2010 1:30PM
British TV is definitely more visible in America these days. BBC America reaches about 68 million homes, according to its press site, and features a few shows every TV fan probably recognizes, like 'Doctor Who' and 'Top Gear.' But it's still behind some of its basic cable brethren.

According to TV By the Numbers, the April premiere of 'Doctor Who' series 5 set ratings records for the network with 1.2 million viewers. That's a lot of people, but dwarfed in comparison to the 5.3 million who watched the 'Jersey Shore' season 2 debut in July.

The Vicar of Dibley to be remade in the U.S.

by Brett Love, posted Sep 21st 2006 10:09AM
Vicar of DibleyFox has announced plans to make a pilot based on the UK hit The Vicar of Dibley. The Americanized version will be renamed The Minister of Divine. Of course, bringing comedies across the Atlantic to be retooled for the American audience is nothing new. What does remain to be seen is whether this latest attempt leans more toward the updated Office, or the updated Coupling.

The Vicar of Dibley tells the story of Geraldine Granger (Dawn French). She comes to the small town of Dibley after their ancient vicar dies. Initially she encounters some reluctance, but eventually her outgoing spirit breathes new life into the failing congregation. Most of the show focuses on Geraldine and her interactions with the collection of misfits that make up the church council. It's very English and very funny.

Now if someone would bring Black Books across the pond, we'd really be in business...
