Do you think it's time for a new soap opera to hit our screens? One where it's one for a certain amount of time of the year and with two episodes a week (three at a push) a soap where it's mainly character driven and plots can be brimming and bubbling in the background to keep things moving. There hasn't been a successful soap since Doctors started in 2000, after that any attempts have failed after a couple of years; such as the Crossroads revival and Night and Day both in the early noughties and Echo Beach in the late noughties. Soaps now a days have become so plot driven it's hard to keep up with them or its characters I find and I have pretty much given up on them, they're starting to resemble the American soaps which is sad. So does anyone have any ideas on what new soap you'd like to see on tv? I have one which is set to be published as a book later next year, it's set in a small Hotel/B & B and it follows the lives of the staff and longer term residents, short term residents could be guest stars for short running stories, there will be some OTT elements to it, it'll be kind of like a middle class Downton Abbey except set in today's era.
