I know its at least three more seasons (including the current one) in "Game of Thrones" lifespan. So, what fantasy series should take its place in the future? My two main choices would be "Stephan R. Donaldson's "The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant"-I know its pretty dark and the main character is a leper who yells "Don't touch me", and "Hellfire and bloody damnation" who knows how many times, but its also a great series that has the potential to be a decent TV series (for HBO or FX) if done right. And of course, they need to make Lord Foul really scary.

My other choice would be Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman". OK, so its a series of graphic novels, but given the rich assortment of characters and storylines, I think I'd rather see a "Sandman" TV show than a movie. Each season would cover one or two of the "Sandman" story arcs. And of course, imagine seeing Death, the fan favorite of goths during the 90's, come to life.

I've heard positive things about the "Wheel of Time" series, but I would be anxious to see "The Sandman" too. On a lighter side, I'd be eager to see more of "Discworld" by the late great Terry Pratchett.

"Discworld" would be great for the BBC. Just get a great cast of comic actors and great writing and presto, you could get the next "Doctor Who".

Maybe it could be done as a HBO/BBC collaboration like they did for "Rome" (I wish that had lasted longer).
