TV reboots: which shows are ripe for an update?

7 October 2010 4:14 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Remake, remodel, revive - which TV shows would you most like to see given a reboot?

Consider yourself lucky. The recent rumours that Kiefer Sutherland, Josh Holloway and Jennifer Love Hewitt were to star in a reboot of Dallas have finally been denied. And a good thing too: because everything you loved about those actors in 24, Lost and Ghost Whisperer would surely have been jettisoned in favour of big hats and inexplicable storylines. Even by the standards of 24, Lost and Ghost Whisperer.

But that doesn't mean that the television reboot industry isn't big business. On the contrary. Last year we were treated to a reboot of 1980s alien-based miniseries V starring Elizabeth Mitchell from Lost. This year saw the stateside debut of a Hawaii Five-o remake starring Daniel Dae Kim from Lost and this summer it was reported that a retooled version of The Rockford Files was also close to »

Kat's back! EastEnders celebrates the homecoming of Mr and Mrs Alfie Moon

21 September 2010 6:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It's been nearly five years since we last encountered Kat and Alfie in Albert Square. So are you glad to see the pair return?

Until last night, there was a hole in EastEnders. Or two holes if you count the weird pawprint-shaped gash that's been carved into the top of Phil Mitchell's bonce ever since he started taking crack. But the main hole – the more relevant hole – was created when Barbara Windsor left Albert Square earlier this month after failing to die in that pub fire.

But now that hole has just been plugged by the return of two EastEnders heavyweights – Alfie Moon and Kat Slater. Although it seems like only yesterday that they both rode off into the sunset, screeching and cackling like a pair of semi-professional Sid James impersonators caught in a bear trap, they've actually been missing from our screens since Christmas 2005.

How popular they'll be is another matter entirely. »
