What? no more WPC 56? - wrong decision
26 May 2015 | by jackmierSee all my reviews

WPC 56 (and particularly season 3) is or was essential viewing!

An innovative crime show like this should NOT be taken off the TV, especially in it's infancy! And even more particularly since season 3 with the new WPC (Annie Taylor) took over and brought it to a new level!!!! What the heck is wrong with the BBC? Who's ever decision it is, or was to take it off is a real shame! and they need their head's checking! I really hope one of the other channels take it over, I am sure it would probably do better on ITV anyhow!

I get a feeling that the new controller or boss who decides whether programmes stay or go are a bit of a SNOB, if something doesn't come from London then it's just not good enough.

The Midlands is a fantastic place, especially to film with it's great history, locations and it's wonderful art and culture, something to be proud of! It's not all about London and Manchester you know! It should be about the great story's and talent!

Get it back on the TV! Us fans should have a say!
