    Not sure of exact prices, but you can probably buy one of the largest Toshiba RPTV's for £2K. I would wait until the current line is replaced with NTSC Progressive capable sets. Shouldn't be too long.

    check here for current prices.

    You don't say what you prefer- CRT direct view, CRT Rear Projection, CRT Front Projection, LCD Screen, LCD Rear Projection, LCD Front Projection, DLP Rear Projection, DLP Front projection, Plasma.

    You'd struggle to get a plasma for £2000.

    Definitely consider RPTVs. The disadvantages of these are highly exaggerated IMO (viewing angle, size, daylight viewing). I got a graded Sony 44" for less than £1k and I think it's stunning (do a search on KP44PS2 for more details). Cheap plasmas are to be avoided.

    With your budget I'd spend around £1000 on a Toshiba or Sony 42-44" set. Watch out for special promotions at this time of year. Last year Toshiba offered free cabinets and 5 year waranties with most of their RPTVs. You can then start saving for 50" OR 60" plasma/LCD in 2-3 years when they could well be half the current prices. Alternatively, the rest of your budget would buy a reasonable DVD, amp and speaker set up if you don't already own one.
