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 »
I love this show, I have recently found it on KPBS - it is a very nice change from typical American TV fare - it is very well written, and the acting of the main cast, as well as the guest actors, is all top-notch
you quickly love these two women, both admiring them and feeling for
the struggles life has thrown at them - they are a charming, feisty duo!
The scenery is breathtaking as they go from place to place, and makes one in America feel like a world traveler -
I hope ITV will change its mind on canceling this series, or that KPBS will pick up the tab to film this show itself -
