The problem with BBC America

This article is quite fascinating. I don't have access to BBC America, and that's basically because there hasn't been any strong reason to buy a network that shows Benny Hill re-runs continually. (I've never liked Benny Hill.)

But would I want a network that aired Spaced (which admittedly wasn't a BBC series, but BBC America is theoretically about the best of all British television, after all) and the new Doctor Who? You bet.

Though admittedly, my understanding is that the problem is that the UK side wants Doctor Who on a station with wider reach than BBC America. Whether or not that's feasible is a completely different question, no matter how brilliant the new series is.
