Come on BBC1 where is Season 4?
15 March 2016 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Please can the BBC tell us when season 4 is coming to our screens?

This show BELONGS up there with all the other top BBC drama's Holby City, Casualty, Bergerac (when it was around) Happy Valley, Call the Midwife and many others that stand out for me and a lot of other viewers! Why has it not been brought to evening slots? of course we have the advantage of iplayer and catch up, but it's good enough, if not BETTER than some of the programs I have just mentioned above! Why tease us with a re run and not give us any more? Season 3 just got better! and so doesn't make sense to not have a new and/or continuing series!

It's the BEST police program on tele right now! and as it's a different era, makes it more appealing.

10/10 for me!
