Some news just in:
ITV will not be recommissioning Demons it seems. Here now, dry your eyes.
According to that ever reliable comic, The Sun, the producers have thrown in the towel because Philip Glenister decided not to return for a second series. And ITV's money troubles must also be affecting which dramas get re-commissioned and with Demons costing a small fortune and achieving rather meager viewing figures and poor critical reaction, then it does seem inevitable that a second series of an expensive flop is not on their 'to do' list.
But then again, it's terribly defeatist if you cancel a show based on the fact that one actor isn't returning. Pity they didn't use my suggestion...turn it into Mina Harker - Vampire Detective.
However, some very good news for Being Human fans. Series 2 has been commissioned for a further eight part run!
According to Digital Spy: 'BBC Three controller Danny Cohen said of the series:
"I'm thrilled that we are recommissioning Being Human. It's hugely popular with young viewers and [has] earned great critical acclaim at the same time. It's also a very improtant staging-post in the successful development of home-grown young drama on BBC Three."
Speaking of possible series two storylines, executive producer Rob Pursey said:
"We already have some very exciting, very dark new stories up our sleeves."
The Guardian has also confirmed this story. The final episode of Series 1 goes out this Sunday. Thanks to Digital Spy, Torchwood.tv and The Sun.
