Today’s poll news is actually quite interesting though. 2,000 British people were asked by the broadband provider Plusnet to name the TV shows that made them proud to be British. That is, the shows they would like to be exported as representative samples of British culture to, say, America.
I’ll start at the bottom, with the comparative low-hitters. The X Factor, for example, only managed a measly 20% of the vote, with EastEnders floating only slightly higher up at 24%. That’s 11% lower than their arch-rivals Coronation Street, but then Corrie’s been going a lot longer and that’s possibly why it occupies a more central place in the nation’s affections.
The new kid on the register is Downton Abbey, which scored a very competitive 44%, nine points above Corrie, and four points below the nation’s favorite, which is, of course, Doctor Who.

Well, they can be proud. :) About Doctor Who but also about Downton Abbey, it’s a great show
