I return from the cinema (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy - excellent, highly recommended!) to find the news in my mailbox that my beloved Garrow's Law has been axed.

While I’m aware that the source for this devastating news is The Sun and therefore everything has to be taken with at least four grains of salt, I still have to say

The BBC1 costume legal drama had four million-plus audiences but channel chief Danny Cohen wants to make more room for “better” shows.
Miserable addle plots! Bracket-faced, gallopping gollumpuses! Gooseberry-eyed crab lanthorns and dandy prats! You should cross the pond at the king’s expense! And if that quote should be correct: may you step barefoot on a lego, Mr. Cohen!

An insider said: “As with Zen and Lark Rise To Candleford, difficult decisions have to be made so Danny can bring in new shows like Call The Midwife. That’s been pulling in over nine million viewers and is BBC1′s most successful drama in at least ten years.”
This is an outrage. I know it’s hard to believe, but some members of the audience can actually cope with more than one quality drama per year. No, really. I’ve managed to enjoy Sherlock, Being Human and Garrow’s Law without my head exploding from quality overload.

I’m very disappointed.

Mark Pallis posted regarding the fate of a fourth series for “Garrow’s Law”,
“according to a recent statement from the BBC, the “jury’s still out”.
Well then, let’s get the jury back in, on our side and a fourth series coming!

You can either make yourself heard on the BBC’s POV messageboard or to email them: pov@bbc.co.uk

If you, like me and millions of fans around the globe, would love a fourth series, now’s the time to let the BBC know. Please, make poor William smile again and drop the BBC a mail today!

So sorry about the lack of discussion post this week for the finale! I found myself unexpectedly without internet Sunday to Wednesday, and then when I finally was able to regain access, I was stuck with a childblock ‐.‐ Big thanks to paracletelux for stepping in!

So what are we thinking... Will there be a fourth series? is this the end of Garrow? There's both room for closure and continuation, but does the ~SPOILER~ unfortunate fate of Mr Southouse, and the current cuts to the budget of the BBC entail the end of this wonderful period‐courtroom drama? Then again, we were thinking the same back at the end of series two, so who knows? Has there been any official word?

Also the 'Watch Garrow Here' post has been updated to include series 3. If anyone has any links they'd like to add please comment on the post.
