Most Missed TV

Doctor Who is the UK's most-missed television programme, according to a new survey by electrical retailers Dixons.

The 40-year-old BBC show, which featured eight different actors in the star role, was voted the series that most people would like to see back on our screens.

Dixons asked 500 customers for their top television shows. Customers were restricted to shows they had not seen for at least five years and were not allowed to vote for programmes like Dad's Army and Fawlty Towers which are occasionally repeated on terrestrial channels.

Dixons managing director Chris Langley said: "It's interesting that nine shows in our charts are broadcast on digital channels, although many of our shoppers didn't realise this is the case."

The Top Twenty

1 Dr Who
2 Dallas
3 Blake's Seven
4 The Goodies
5 The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin
6 Just Good Friends
7 Starsky and Hutch
8 3-2-1
9 Tiswas
10 Not the Nine O'clock News
11 Treasure Hunt
12 The Muppets
13 Rent-A-Ghost
14 The Waltons
15 Man About the House
16 Hong Kong Phooey
17The Adventure Game
18 Mork and Mindy
19 Jim'll Fix It

A spokesman for the group said "this information has been gathered using the very latest in our consumer/customer information technology feedback program". But no responsibility could be accepted for the accuracy of the information due to the dodgy 16K ram pack on the back of ZX81.

I have to disagree with all that has been fired at Dixons.

I found them to have a generous selection of electronic products. Prices were mean and competitive. Excellent guarantee terms at very little to no extra charge.

The staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and will notice you at a hundred metres when you are in difficulty with a remote control (that is left out with batteries!).

If there is a problem with a product, you can phone them up and they will pick it up themselves AND hand over a replacement while their service teams deal with the problematic device.

I have taken things back that I have dropped or got bored with and had a refund or replacement (new model) without any problems.

Yes, the customer's might be thick; but, Dixons and their staff are second to none.

Best Regards,

Mark.

As I read the list in the first post, I thought about some of the old TV series that I really loved and one of best was a series called Out of Town, hosted by Jack Hargreaves. Anyone else remember this?

Sunday afternoons , about lunchtime (1ish) wasnt it ? Thunderbirds was on about the same time.

For me Top Cat was up there with Doctor Who and Blakes Seven.

Animal Magic probably kept me out of trouble after school. Wouldnt be the same without Johnny Morris though. Skippy and Champion the Wonder Horse were also good to watch.

Before that Pogles Wood (really showing my age now), and one of the first Japanese cross over anime, Marine Boy.

Strange that out of all of the childrens programmes , my parents put a ban on Tom and Jerry as it was'too violent'.

Casey Jones,

When you hear
The tootin' of his whistle
It's Casey at the cabin of his Canonball Express


Amazing to think I can remember that and not my wife's birthday... it must just have sneaked in there before the memory circuits were pickled
