The series was poorly received by critics and viewers. The BBC was prepared to commission a second series, but the writers declined, feeling that they had taken a risk with the show but that it had not paid off. See more »
Appalling. Truly cringeworthy, patronising garbage! I happen to be a 1st Class Durham Archaeology graduate (ala the character on the show) and I am appalled that they have the nerve to name places, and institutions in association with this show.
Perhaps, perhaps, if no one had ever seen Time Team, the awful archaeological practice might have slipped us by.
But in the light of a more sophisticated audience and a viewing public who are increasingly curious about the past, this was gratuitous, misleading, dumbed-down rubbish which would not even have made it into the most fevered wet dreams of a young George Lucas! Leave Indy to the Americans and Time Team to Channel four.
Be original BBC!
********* Oh yes one more thing A professor, doesn't usually equate to a dirty old man who refers to women by virtue of their physique.
It is ironic that such a character exists in such a bland show. The BBC has lost the plot on 'PC' despite its best efforts, lost the plot on licence costs and lost the plot in this show!
