A selection of British TV news from the past week:

Victoria, season 3: has been confirmed.
New on Netflix: The Windsors.
The BBC is going to produce a “definitive” documentary on the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency has been canceled, after two seasons.
NBC is developing an American remake of Graham Linehan’s The IT Crowd. My money’s on them completely messing it up. What do you think?
What to watch for the holidays? Perhaps a replay of season 1 of Victoria? Here’s an updated synopsis for the forthcoming Dr. Who Christmas special; and here are British Christmas specials around the dial. Also don’t forget to read last week’s post from Jackie, our British Secret Weapon, about what she’ll be watching this year.
What to listen to for the holidays? Ten more British Christmas songs.
Have a great week watching (British) TV!
