This Xmas the television selection on offer was pretty poor, SF-wise anyway. UK television relies mainly on imports from the USA, and these are usually screened at least a year after their first US screening. For example, BBC2 is a year behind the USA in ST: VGR and over 2 years behind in ST: DS9.
Arturo's death happened because John Rhys Davies felt the scripts were degenerating, and he wanted out. His position has been filled by Kari Wuher [known to fans as Woo-Woo], whose job appears to be providing babe factor by being a few inches taller than the other girl, Wade. These days they BOTH walk around in skimpy t-shirts and shorts.
There were 2 outstanding pieces of entertainment over the Xmas period, however.
