Now, it’s probably because I’m American, and I’m used to television shows having long and drawn out story arcs that last for about twenty or so episodes, so I also seem to be surprised when I find a good British show that has a rather short season.
Torchwood’s short. Two seasons (series’) of thirteen episodes each, plus series three, which was fives episodes (though I pretend that pesky last one doesn’t exist and replace it with my own reality where Ianto doesn’t die. I’ll admit, I haven’t exactly watched it, and I don’t plan to. Twin filled me in well enough), and series four (the somewhat disappointing one) had ten.
Billie Piper (aka Rose, my favorite companion from Doctor Who, though, I don’t want to incite a war between the Martha and Donna fans, I love them both as well, I just love Rose the most) and her show Secret Diary of a Call Girl also has short series’, but tonight, I discovered one that takes the cake.
Three episodes per season, with the first episode of the second airing yesterday.
At least the episodes are long, so it’s kind of like two each.
And this version of Sherlock, I don’t know what it is, but his eyes are amazing and his voice just sends me to a happier place.
Which is definitely what I need right about now, because I am in some SERIOUS turmoil concerning the games Spike has been playing lately.
I should talk to Best Friend about it.
I’ll text her first thing tomorrow, see what she’s up to.
But now, back to Sherlock,
