Garrow’s Law axed: The Pox on you, BBC!
While I’m aware that the source for this devastating news is The Sun and therefore everything has to be taken with at least four grains of salt, I still have to say
The BBC1 costume legal drama had four million-plus audiences but channel chief Danny Cohen wants to make more room for “better” shows.
Miserable addle plots! Bracket-faced, gallopping gollumpuses! Gooseberry-eyed crab lanthorns and dandy prats! You should cross the pond at the king’s expense! And if that quote should be correct: may you step barefoot on a lego, Mr. Cohen!
An insider said: “As with Zen and Lark Rise To Candleford, difficult decisions have to be made so Danny can bring in new shows like Call The Midwife. That’s been pulling in over nine million viewers and is BBC1’s most successful drama in at least ten years.”
This is an outrage. I know it’s hard to believe, but some members of the audience can actually cope with more than one quality drama per year. No, really. I’ve managed to enjoy Sherlock, Being Human and Garrow’s Law without my head exploding from quality overload.
I’m very disappointed.
