Default Britannia Season 2 - best TV soundtrack ever?

Just finished watching Season 2 of Britannia. Even as a GoT fan who wasn't that disappointed with its final season, I have to say with its clever storyline and dark humour, Britannia blew that final season away. David Morrissey is playing the role he was born to play and Nikolaj Lie Kaas has grown into his role as teacher to Eleanor Worthington Cox, who is justifying the early hype she received when she won an Olivier at the age of 10. As for Mackenzie Crook, he is just amazing in his dual role and in a perfect world, would waltz away with the award for best actor in a drama.

But while the show is fantastic, the music choices are at least on a par with or possibly even pip the original BBC 'Life On Mars' soundtrack, which was my previous favourite. Donovan's 'Season Of The Witch' suits the mood perfectly (and listen out for a blistering Richard Thompson take on it half way through). We also get lots more Donovan, a fair bit of Cream, Humble Pie, Small Faces, Fairport Convention, Stooges, even the Pretty Things: what's not to like?!

This is a series which definitely needs renewing IMHO. Any other fans?
