I don't understand why the BBC only makes a few (15 - 20) episodes of very popular sitcoms and then never makes anymore. Examples are Are You Being Served, Again?, Black Adder, and Vicar of Dibley. Here in the U.S., sitcoms are made until the audience doesn't tune in anymore with some very rare exceptions (Beverly Hillbillies, Andy Griffith Show). Unfortunately, by the time a sequel to some of these programs is thought of, many of the original characters have passed on or aren't interested anymore. I would sure like to see more episodes of many of these shows. I see that many of these actors appear in other productions and must still be popular in England. Their characters can't be played by others and carry the impact that the originals do. One exception may be Mary Millar as "Rose" in Keeping Up Appearances.
