    They had huge opportunity in BTE yes, they sadly used it to bring out the meat trick :thumbdown::mad:. And that plot gap I just hate. But I wouldn't change anything so drastically. Do you really believe length is so important?

    Like I said, I disagree that 30 minutes is "the best" length for any kind of show.
    At the end of the day the ideal length is what gets the story across and the best possible way without feeling as filler or being repetitive.
    Take Person of Interest for example. Because in the US you have to make something like 25 to 35 shows a season they had to keep stuffing episodes in that didn't move the arc along. Had they stuck to the "Machine vs Samaritan" arc only it would have been a much better season.
    Or take the Grand Tour on Amazon Prime. No two episodes are the same length. The take whatever time they deem necessary (granted some of them are a bit too long).
    I prefer the 1 hour shows but I am happy with whatever Dwarf I can get.

    Wow Adam, why would you post a massive selfie in a thread? You're clearly trying to derail it. Yet more troublemaking from you today! :sulk:

    Neither of those two TURNED into anything, they were exactly the genre they were wrote as.

    Well, there's a trailer out and release date.

    Nothing in Australia, nada. It's like it's not happening.

    I'm happy to eat my hat if I'm wrong, but after viewing the trailer I'm even more convinced the special will flop.
