After a top notch first run back in 2013 on BBC Two, the Count is returning with a new 7-part second series this time on BBC One. It was a shame that the first series didn't attract much of an audience but I really don't see how it will attract a big audience on BBC One in such an awful time slot of 10:35pm of a Tuesday night.

Looking forward to the new series, none the less.

Ditto and will have to set digi-box as too late for me, which does seem an odd time not unless he is going to start swearing a lot in it? Pleased

I enjoyed it also, some of it notably fell a bit flat but not too bad at all, just wished they would put it in a better timeslot.

Had never heard of this show before so no idea it has already had a first series.

Caught yesterday's episode by pure luck and loved it. Very funny and if the rest of the series is as good as last night's episode then I will have to somehow find a way to watch the first series.

Far too early to say. Quite likely, but it depends on the ratings.

Nice and patronising there, thanks for that.

Sorry but not everyone has funds to go out and buy DVDs on a whim.

Come 'ere and say that.

It was on radio before transfer to TV.

Personally I prefer the radio shows but lots of assorted stuff on YouTube.

Series 1 is still available for free streaming on Hulu.com or with the Hulu app and a free account on Android. There are ways to watch it wherever you are, such as the Hola browser add-on for Firefox.

I thought it risible it got overlooked for the BC awards given the crap that was nominated, especially in the newcomer category. Probably the only true sitcom made last year.
