Brilliant quiz! 100/110, happy with that but I knew some of the ones I didn't get, grr!

One thing - TDDUP - the TV show was actually TDUDP - "Til Death Us Do Part".

Left out Absolute Power and Toast of London, which is a bit disappointing; and Father Ted is Irish; but apart from that, it was a great quiz.

Well, I have never heard of either of your suggestions, but happy to be able to include them - and will try and catch up with this too. Thanks. Also, I am prepared to overlook Father Ted's nationality!!
