why has this fantastic series been canceled??
17 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
