As examples of influential popular culture TV series epitomise the rich, diversified heritage of twentieth and twenty-first-century consumer culture, reflecting social and political scenarios of our times. Ideas and concepts beneath successful series are examined in the selected peer reviewed papers written by scholars in this volume. Discourse, Dialogue and Characterisation in TV series aims to contribute to the growing scholarship on the so-called field of Television Studies through a number of critical essays that offer distinct critical approaches to a selection of fictional (digital) TV series, thus evincing the extent to which these types of narratives that are so embedded in popular culture today may be studied from multiple approaches.
