5 TV Revivals That Were Worth The Wait

Where would we be without the return of Doctor Who?


It doesn't matter whether it's a long-running series that came to a natural conclusion, or a TV gem that was cancelled too soon, there's nothing quite like getting the news that one of your favourite shows is going to be revived.
