On 12 May 2006, ITV announced that the third series was the last, due to savings. Two stories were in preparation for shooting in Portugal when the ITV Network Centre decided to cancel plans for a fourth series. Carnival hopes that the show might someday be picked up again by another channel. See more »
We have seen just a bit of the second season here in the US. We understand that the series produced a third season and that it has been axed in England. What are the powers that be thinking when they eliminate a program like this? Excellent drama, excellent mystery, excellent actors.
We love this program!There are so many and too many reality series on prime time television and little enough to entertain us without overt violence! This series keeps you on the edge of your seat, all the while entertaining folks to the max. Sponsors love to replace quality shows like this one, with cheap reality shows instead. So sad for the viewing public.
