Hi johnrainey
Muscle spasms and twitches can be symptoms of some medical conditions. But I’ve never heard about “sadly coinciding with the release of the popular brittish programme derek”. So, it can be negative muscle reflex for watching very exiting TV stuff in predisposed persons.
My advice:
•     Turn off your TV or computer to stop watching this program for two weeks
•     Avoid stressful situation
•     Take vitamin B supplements, especially B-12 (2-3 mcg/day)
•     Walk 30 minutes two times a day or go to gym
•     Take a few sessions of the acupuncture and massage
•     Take magnesium supplement
•     Drink chamomile, peppermint tea during the day
•     Drink mineral water 4 cups a day
•     Sleep more than 8 hours at night

Try two weeks, if your muscle spasms and twitches will not lessen, go to neurologist for evaluation.
Good Luck
