We've had the good, the bad and the downright terrible on TV this year. Here's Sarah Dempster's take on the televisual offerings of the last 12 months

It was the best of years; it was the worst of years. Primarily, however, 2012 was the telliest of years. There was so much telly, in fact, that there seemed a very real chance it might burst its banks and start pumping out of the sides, leaving us up to our molars in Christopher Maloney and Eggheads repeats, smelling faintly of T4 On The Beach.

Drama. It was all over the place. Here a plot, there a plot, everwhere a plot-plot. The Hour (BBC2), Everyday (C4), Line Of Duty (BBC2), The Town (ITV1), Birdsong (BBC2), Accused (BBC1), A Mother's Son (ITV1), A Young Doctor's Notebook (Sky Arts), Parade's End (BBC2), Homefront (ITV1), Secret State (C4), Room At The Top (BBC4), The Fear (C4) – all conspired »
