My Top 10 TV Programmes of 2011

Somewhat belatedly, here's a list of the ten programmes which most tickled my televisual fancy last year. To be included, programmes must have been broadcast in the UK within the calendar year (hence no Sherlock). Do let me know in the comments what I should have been watching...

#1 The Killing - the most gripping 30 hours of 2011

#2 Rev. - matches, if not surpasses, the genius of the first series

#3 Frozen Planet - can I pay my license fee again, please?

#4 Holy Flying Circus - brilliantly Pythonesque and laugh out loud funny

#5 Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die - the toughest of watches but a documentary of real import

#6 All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace - characteristically brain melting fare from the inimitable Mr Curtis

#7 Wonders of the Universe - Professor Cox does it again, this time on an intergalactic scale

#8 Our War - bold, moving, terrifying

#9 Pan Am - partially alleviating my Mad Men withdrawal symptoms

#10 Masterchef: The Professionals - format TV at it's very best
