New stuff on BBC HD this week

In addition to the series already underway (Lark Rise to Candleford; Around the World in 80 Gardens; Damages; Torchwood; Holby Blue; Mitchell & Webb; Hotel Babylon) there's only one thing of note BBC HD this week. The godawful Fairy Tales gets a repeat airing on Sunday at 10pm. For those who missed it the first time around, here's a pity one-word review: AVOID!
What makes this risible programme even less palatable is that this time slot is, a week later, the same as BBC4 premiere of the critically acclaimed Mad Men, from one of the guys behind the Sopranos and very hotly anticipated in the Nialli household. Which means that instead of showing Mad Men a simulcast in HD, the BBC will be treating us to an entire run of Fairy Tale repeats. Laughable, but not in a good way...
