God bless you BBC4. Every so often you'll come up with a cracking idea for a season of programming, like last year's Ghost Story season. Now we've got 'British Spies Season'.
I can't seem to find an in-depth listing of what's in it, but there's definitely a bit of Spooks, a bit of Smiley (don't know whether it was Tinker, Tailor or Smiley's People) and some decent documentaries.
It probably won't include The Sandbaggers, that being a Yorkshire programme, but I live in hope. I'll keep you updated as I find out more.
UPDATE: The trailer's up on the BBC Four site.

While we were all looking in the opposite direction, Sky has been quietly filming Terry Pratchett's Hogfather. Starring David Jason, Nigel Planer, Ian Richardson and Marc Warren, the two-part adaptation is likely to air just before Christmas week. The producers have the option to adapt other Pratchett novels, including The Colour of Magic.

Claire Forlani is joining the cast of CSI: New York next season. She's always interesting so that might be a good reason to watch the usually rather dull CSI: NY. It might also mean something rather exciting is happening on a completely different show.
On the other hand, Forlani's casting might put you off watching CSI: NY. She's intended as a potential love interest for Gary Sinise. Which is a bit icky - she's 34, he's 51 - although not overwhelmingly icky. Enough to give me second thoughts about watching, though.
Plus what is it about 'Mac' and English women in their early 30s? He was after that Sonya Walger last season.
The fact he's not suggests something interesting is happening elsewhere.
DO NOT READ ANOTHER WORD IF YOU WANT TO AVOID BIG SPOILERS FOR A US SERIES YOU MIGHT WELL BE WATCHING.
