Heroes coming to BBC2

Good news for UK readers who have been sitting through my Heroes coverage, wondering

a) if they’re going to have to stump up the cash to watch it on Sky

b) if I’ll ever shut up about it.

The BBC has just announced it’ll be airing Heroes next year on BBC2, presumably after SciFi has finished showing it or even some time during the run. Can’t help you with the second bit, though guys, cos it really is quite good.

UPDATE: Digital Spy says that SciFi will air Heroes in January, with BBC2 airing the show after that run finishes.
