I'd love to see a Doctor Who or a Heroes movie. 2 of my favourite tv shows.

Generally I'd say none. Film and TV require quite different techniques and where transfers occur more often than not they are unsuccessful. For example, there was a Doctor Who film (with Peter Cushing) which - quite rightly - hardly anyone remembers. Star Trek made the transition quite successfully but the films don't actually have a great deal in common with their TV counterparts. I recall many British TV comedy series being turned into films during the 1970s - the results in nearly all cases were hugely disappointing.
As for films being successfully adapted into TV series, I'm struggling to think of any examples. "MASH" is possibly one but, again, the TV show was completely different from the original film.

The tv series based on the movie Alien Nation was very good, but it was cancelled after just one year due to network politics. Although it was revived a while later for some tv movies it's barely been seen in this country - it did get a full run late at night on itv early in the 1990's - so it's not too well known. But it is a good example of a film being made into a good tv series.

I would have loved to seen a Farscape movie.
