Some of my most favorite shows are from England - and here's just a few that are on my all-time bestest list:
|TIM, teleport me to Vegas!|
They were helped by some supercomputer they called TIM that was not only telepathic, but could actually teleport the kids all over the place.
I remember watching The Tomorrow People on my local public television channel, and the show actually aired in Britain from 1973-79. They brought it back in 1992-95 on Nickelodeon. The newer version was OK, but not as good as the original.
|Blake looks fabulous|
The show completely changed when Roj Blake's character was dropped from the line up after the second season, and the cold-hearted computer genius Kerr Avon took over as the groups leader. This fantastic space opera is probably most well known for it's controversial ending. Blake returns and has a showdown with Avon, and what happens next is still debated to this day.
There's been talk of bringing the show back, but nothing has come out of those discussions.
|"Trust me, I'm The Doctor."|
The show is about a mysterious Time Lord everyone calls "The Doctor" who travels in time and space in a TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimensions In Space). His space/time machine has taken the form of a British blue police call box. What's extra cool is when The Doctor is severely injured, his body is able to regenerate - which is why there have been eleven actors to play the lead character. Each incarnation has a completely separate personality, but the one constant is that The Doctor is a scientific genius who is unable to merely observe. His curiosity and desire to help others often gets him into trouble, but in the end, The Doctor saves the day.
The Doctor has made a bunch of enemies during his many adventures including: The Master (a fellow renegade Time Lord), the Cyberman (a race of machines reminiscent of Star Trek's Borgs), and the dreadful Daleks - alien beings encased in armor that reminds me of salt and pepper shakers.
Doctor Who is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running science fiction TV show EVER.
