THE LAST LAP: Beyond the well-worn concept of shark-jumping, there's another way of categorising TV shows: the manner in which they leave the world. Some get yanked mid-season, never to return. Some, however, continue filming even after they've been told this series is the last, and its those which are most fascinating. Sometimes the sight of the grave spurs the team to greater highs - we like to think Buffy went out on one of these - and sometimes... well, there's a sense of just the producers just giving up and poking out any old rubbish as - hey - we're not going to get recommissioned anyway.

Which category do you think Sex And The City falls into? [Hint: They've just cast Geri Halliwell in an acting role.]
