Will Garrow’s Law return in November? It better.

3 October, 2011 at 10:31 am 5 comments

"It's a letter from the BBC. They say we're booked for Strictly Come Dancing." "I'm afraid my dance card is already full, Mr. Silvester."

Though I’m sitting here in my flipflops and smother my pale self with sunscreen factor 78 even when inside, it’s October. That’s very close to November, and if “Garrow’s Law”, as the grapevine whispers, should really return to our screens soon, wouldn’t it be time for the BBC to, I don’t know, at least acknowledge that there will be a third series? So far, all we hear from Aunt Beep is nothing.

Of course, I fully understand that there’s not much time to promote a show like “Garrow’s Law” if you have to hawk 3048409 home improvement, 70349853085 home selling and 970909 antique hunts/challenges/road trips/carbooth sales shows to the masses. “Garrow’s Law” has many fans, also abroad, and I think they deserve at least some basic information – “there will be a third series”, for example. And a timely information when we can expect to see one of our favourite shows to return. Don’t leave that information job to the fans or extras. It only leads to confusion and misunderstandings.

Having said that, there are many rumours of “Garrow’s Law” series 3 being broadcasted mid-November. Dates I’ve seen mentioned were 11 November and 17 November – both don’t ring “true” to me, though, as one is a Friday, the other a Thursday, and “Garrow’s Law” is traditionally shown on a Sunday. So if the statements made by one extra regarding “mid-November” are correct, that would be either 13 or 20 November. Fine for me – late birthday-present! Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

A small spoiler: TV Choice Magazine have interviewed Andrew Buchan and Lyndsey Marshal:

Interviewed Andrew Buchan & Lyndsey Marshal for Garrow’s Law, series 3. They say Garrow and Lady Sarah are now living together in poverty!

Aw. I guess this means we should stock up on the tissues, folks. Though I hope they won’t be too heavy on the misery; against popular belief, fans are capable of handling happy endings. We love happy endings!

PS: yes, I’ll review the episodes of the new series. Depending on the date with a wee bit of delay, though.

    Thanks for the info 🙂

    I check the BBC press releases frequently for a sign of GL3… nothing yet sadly! They may wait to announce it until the week before however… doesn’t seem right in terms of advertising, but who knows… they’re only up to middle of October for press releases at the moment, so maybe another week or so… Fingers crossed!

    Perhaps when the final series of spooks finishes its Sunday evenings run, GL may be back on then…. who knows! All speculation. Come on BBC, the fans are getting restless!

      I know that they always post information only (too) close to the broadcast date, but at least they could have confirmed at one point in time that they *will do* a third series. November can’t come soon enough…
