How to spot a British Formula TV show..

by James Murphy

Isn’t it obvious? No? Ok I will elaborate:

  • They tend to launch on Sunday nights.
  • They favour cop show format. Our hero/heroine is a bit of a maverick. Muddled love life. Loner. Hated by yet also essential to some medical /police establishment. Or both!
  • Still trapped in the 1990s, even if it’s not a period piece, its main ambition is to be ‘the new Inspector Morse‘.
  • There is a factory floor list of recurring personnel: Suranne Jones, Jodie Comer, David Tennant, Jenna Coleman, Rebecca Front, Katherine Kelly, etc.
  • Regional placement is key, preferably a University town. Oxford, Cambridge, Hull..
  • The leading man will be given some sort of ‘issue’: OCD, autism, cancer?
  • Case in point, today? Ben Miller in Professor T. Most of the boxes above are ticked. I tuned out very quickly. Besides, I always confuse Miller with Rob Brydon (which to be fair, would be more imaginative casting?).
