Trivia

The series was cancelled because Jack Shepherd refused to continue in the title role when the producers sacked Jimmy Yuill (Det. Insp. Doug Kersey) "for insurance reasons" after he contracted life-threatening meningitis during filming, and then would not reinstate him even though he made a full recovery. Cast and crew felt betrayed and embittered by the production company's heavy-handed attitude. The character of Doug Kersey was written out of the last two episodes of what became the final series.

Disappointed in the Series
22 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched a lot of the series up to Season three.

The stories are really interesting and the actors are good.

My disappointment comes in the end of episodes and in the summation of why a killer killed makes me mad.

These cops makes excuses as to why people do bad things. The latest one "305 Crazy for You" was of a woman that heard voices and was a mental case. They excuse every bad thing she does Ms Lane even hugs the woman that stabbed a cop. They let the "mental" criminal act out to get sympathy from the viewer that "this person does not know what they are doing".

This makes me sick. Wycliffe stories always giving criminals the excuse as to why they killed. Evil people do bad things and it does not matter if they are nuts, on drugs or going through something like a divorce. Sometime when a person is found guilty the ending of the episode does not show them going to jail or what happens. In fact Wycliffe and his group talk to suspected criminals like they are their best friend. They have tea with them, tell them how much they need their help, knowing these people are the killers or covering up for the killer. They don't use guns and when another cop shoots they are reprimanded.

Society has to stop making excuses for killers. Keep them in jail and don't let them out because the jails are full, build more prisons.

This series is supposed to be in Cornwall England but even in the US people get paroled only to come out and kill again.

People of today have no brains and they scare the cops so they can't do their job like in New York and Ferguson.

So society becomes pacifist while the criminals kill the rest of us.
