|The BBC Is Doing Rather Well At The Moment

I like Sherlock. It's got panache. It's exciting, funny, clever and made with loving respect for the source material. Comberbatch and Freeman are terrific. |
I also like Rev- which ended its run last night with a episode of Graham Greeneish intensity- in which our hero- never ceasing to be amusing- turned into a whisky priest and was saved by a dying woman. At the end I found myself saying "Gosh" to no-one in particular- maybe to God. Tom Hollander and the rest of the cast are terrific.
So that's two new BBC shows I really, really like. Does this represent some kind of mini-renaissance?
