Zen, the BBC drama, not the computer from The Liberator

I recently watched this mini series again and was struck by just how excellent a series it was. There were only three episodes, each of them of almost feature length, but the BBC could have kept it going, it was brilliant, really brilliant, and a real shame that it stopped.

Of course it isn’t the first time that the BBC have made a brilliant drama and then given up on it before it’s had a real chance to get established. They did this with Outcasts, a science fiction series that had potential which was of course, unrealised. I wish they’d get it together and understand that some shows take a little while to get going and establish themselves. They shouldn’t give up so soon. Zen would have been excellent in a second series. Of course it’s too late now, which is such a shame.
