Ripped

TA132I had already written and shot this week’s Telly Addict (the penultimate for 2013) when I belatedly discovered that Ripper Street has been cancelled by BBC1. This is cruel news, and adds an unwished-for layer of irony to my tribute to it as “the best UK continuing drama”. Elsewhere, Charlie Brooker’s How Videogames Changed The World on C4; Liberty Of London on C4; 28 Up South Africa on ITV (a timely piece of scheduling, as it turns out); Robbie Williams: One Night At The Palladium on BBC1; and a bit of Gogglebox, despite the fact that a certain degree of its shine has come off due to an incident this week.

One thought on “Ripped

  1. It seems that all may not be lost for Ripper Street following a strong backlash against the apparent cancellation. There is now talk of a co-production with Lovefilm for further series on Digitalspy. Oh, and where was the mandatory ‘gutted’ joke, Andrew?
