Investigating a Cross-Cultural Mystery: The Reception of British Detective Dramas by an American Audience
Carey, Joanna (2006) Investigating a Cross-Cultural Mystery: The Reception of British Detective Dramas by an American Audience. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)] (Unpublished)
This dissertation is aimed at understanding the ways in which American viewers interact with and read British detective dramas and what pleasures they may experience from this interaction. It addresses a gap in critical knowledge of American audiences' reception of British media through a focus on the responses of a selected audience to a questionnaire and interview as well as an analysis of a separate audience's group discussions on British television programming. The majority of the dissertation is an analysis of this empirical data which is further contextualised within a consideration of the marketing and promotion of these programmes in the press and in relation to the British tourist industry and concepts of heritage.
