Vote for your favourite British TV show to appear in Captain America sequel The Winter Soldier

Sherlock? Doctor Who? Downton Abbey? The X Factor? Here’s a unique opportunity to help decide which of ten classic UK shows gets a mention in the upcoming Marvel blockbuster

In a ground-breaking movie tie-in, users will be able to help choose which of ten classic British and Irish TV shows appear in the forthcoming movie sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.


Following on from the events of Avengers Assemble, the movie sees Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, emerge from a 65-year ice coma to a changed world.

A scene in the film will focus on pages from Cap’s notebook detailing what he’s missed during his enforced absence – which includes some great TV. And that’s where you come in. Choose up to three of the ten shows listed in the box below to help decide which one will appear actually on screen in the pages of Captain America’s diary.

So, for example, if you think Benedict Cumberbatch’s detective should get a mention in the blockbuster movie, vote Sherlock, or if you think everyone’s favourite Time Lord deserves recognition, make Doctor Who your choice.

Meanwhile, fans of The X Factor, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Coronation Street, Father Ted, Big Brother, The Only Way Is Essex, Downton Abbey and Fawlty Towers can also have their say.

Cast your vote or votes below (you can choose up to three).

Picking up where Captain America: The First Avenger left off, The Winter Soldier finds Steve Rogers living quietly in Washington DC and attempting to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the  Falcon (Anthony Mackie). However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy – the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan).


Captain America: The Winter Soldier arrives in UK cinemas on 26 March 2014
