I've been a big fan of British series - sitcoms and drama for years - dozens and dozens.
I somehow endured the first series of TUH but it was torture - I stayed with it out of disbelief actually.
Trite, predictable scenarios - obvious cliché jokes and retorts. Mediocre acting but maybe they couldn't help it with the abysmal script.
I thought Honor Blackman might have offered something but it was a crap role with the most simplistic throwaway lines. I don't know how makeup or cinematography might have changed it but the whites of her eyes kept popping out and taking off like flying saucers, to boot.
Basically I think the writers had been watching too much American TV.
