18 British TV Shows That Sadly Didn't Return In 2015

We still need your guidance, Neil.

Posted on

2. Art Attack

ITV

Original air date: 1990–2007*

They should completely flip the format and have Neil teach us about adult stuff. How to apply for a mortgage, taking out a loan, and filing a tax return – that sort of stuff.

*A new series was launched in 2011, hosted by false pretenders to Neil Buchanan's throne.

3. Bernard's Watch

ITV

Original air date: 1997-2001

What's Bernard up to now? Is he using his power of time control for good? Is he using it for evil? Is Bernard a villain with plans for world domination? Does he attempt to enslave humanity for his own personal gain? Can he be stopped?

4. Gladiators

ITV Studios

Original air date: 1992-2000*

Just introduce some new Gladiators, maybe some new games, but bring back Wolf in some capacity.

*Sky briefly revived the show between 2008-2009.

6. Bad Girls

ITV

Original air date: 1999-2006

Resurrect the show with a different cast, the same prison, the same batshit insane storylines, and the overuse of the word "nonce".

9. Skins

All3Media

Original air date: 2007-2013

Who wouldn't want to see a sequel with the first generation of characters returning to our screens? Hell, even a new generation of characters would be better than nothing.

12. Footballers' Wives

ITV

Original air date: 2002-2006

With a show this crazy the sky's the limit. No show since has managed to tow the line between the brilliant and the insane quite like this noughties drama did.

15. Blind Date

ITV Studios

Original air date: 1991-2003

Suggesting this show be revived after the passing of Cilla Black may seem like sacrilege to some, but it's too good a format not to bring back.

16. SMTV: Live

ITV

Original air date: 1998-2003

Sure, Ant and Dec are great presenting shows at prime time, but how about giving us some watchable breakfast TV on a Saturday morning?

17. Lads' Army

Warner Bros. Television Productions UK

Original air date: 2002-2006

One of the most unfairly forgotten about shows in British television history. Bring it back exactly the same as it was before – with just a bunch of trouble makers getting screamed at by comically overshouty army men.
