Tony on TV - 9th May
Chad - almost 5 years

The first clinic was hosted by Philip Schofield on ITV last week as the British Soap Awards 2012 shone the spotlight on the country’s most popular TV genre in 17 categories voted for by the long-suffering public or by a panel of judges. In the end it turned out to be seven awards apiece for ‘EastEnders’ and ‘Coronation Street’ with the residents of Albert Square cheering on Pam St Clement who scooped the Lifetime Achievement Award as Walford’s late and much-missed Pat Butcher while viewers voted it the Best British Soap, no doubt for being consistently bleak and depressing. That charge can’t be levelled at ‘Corrie’ which had the Sexiest Female -- Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) and Villain of the Year -- Andrew Lancel (Frank Foster) as well as being tops for comedy, thanks to Stephanie Cole (Sylvia Goodwin).

LATimes - almost 5 years
"Doc Martin," the globally popular British series about an antisocial big-city surgeon working as a general practitioner among boundary-disrespecting neighbors in a Cornwall fishing village, has just begun its fifth season. Over the last couple of years it has become a staple feature of American public broadcasting -- the second episode of the new season premieres locally tonight on KCET -- and has been widely available online, offered free to subscribers of Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus. Acorn Media, which has released the previous four seasons on DVD, will add the fifth in June. (I earlier wrote about the series here.)
