This sounds so much better than MM is turning out to be. Plus, firefighters! Can hardly lose with that. :) But eight episodes? Waaaaah.

Eight eps is pretty standard for most UK dramas these days (it's gone up actually, used to be six!) The nice thing is that the way series get commissioned there, it's usually with as much a mind that it could be one-and-done as that if it's successful, they may do another one; therefore, there's usually a) a strong arc that carries through all the episodes and b) a satisfying resolution. Which can often *really* compensate for the shorter run. ;)

They do tend to be better at giving a satisfying conclusion, while leaving it open just in case. My favorite bit of British TV, though, is that they cast for talent, not for looks, and it makes for much more layered performances, generally, as well as a huge diversity in looks all across the board. I'm still gonna whine about short 'series' though. lol
