Full of corpses, coastal paths and childhood sweethearts, Sally Abbott’s ace daytime soap has been culled. It’s a tragedy for a show so clearly nailing it
If you only see your sofa during the hours of darkness you might have missed The Coroner, a near-perfect daytime drama from the typewriter of Sally Abbott. It arrived in 2015, had two very successful series on BBC1, won awards and – you’re ahead of me – has just been inexplicably cancelled by its broadcaster to the dismay of fans.
It stars Claire Goose as solicitor Jane Kennedy, who goes home to Devon to become a small-town coroner in the place where she grew up.
