My Hero is a BBC sitcom created by Paul Mendelson. The programme ran for six series, first broadcast in February 2000, and concluding in September 2006. The series follows the antics of the dim-witted superhero "Thermoman", portrayed by Ardal O'Hanlon in series one to five and by James Dreyfus in the final series. The series was regularly directed by John Stroud. In the UK, the digital channel Gold regularly re-runs the programme, although the last series has yet to appear on the channel. In the United States it was shown on PBS and, briefly, BBC America. In Australia, UKTV offered re-runs of the first three series, while BBC Entertainment provided repeats for Scandinavia.

Season 6

2006 • 8 Episodes

The sixth and final series of British television comedy My Hero ran from July 21, 2006 to September 10, 2006. This series featured eight episodes, and saw the majority of the main cast reprise their characters from Series five, with the exception of George Sunday, who decided to leave the series after episode one. He was replaced by actor James Dreyfus, who took the character of George Sunday into the new alias, George Monday. The series was once again broadcast on BBC1, and was overseen by series creator Paul Mendelson. Due to poor ratings for the series, and the poor public reception to Dreyfus, the series was axed, leading to the final two episodes being broadcast on Sunday lunchtimes, rather than the prime-time slot on Friday evenings. The series has never been released on DVD.
