1 Class Cancelled (or is it?) on Fri Feb 24, 2017 8:54 am

http://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news/doctor-who-spin-class-axed-9906600

GC on PMF posted this link for the Daily Mirror article but it seems they are the only outlet reporting it at the moment and it uses the tense 'to be' as if it hasn't happened yet. If it has been decided then it has, even if it isn't officially announced. It had an average AI of 70. That's Love and Monsters/Sleep No More territory

Anyway, it appears to be dead.

No real surprise there. The biggest shock was how well it seemed to do in its BBC One slot, they still weren't great, but I was expecting worse.

I can't find anyone other than The Mirror that confirms this. But I get the feeling that Nu Who products aren't going to get officially cancelled unless it's absolutely necessary, as it'd be an embarrassment for the Beeb. (there'll probably be an announcement about the cancellation tomorrow now I've said that!)

It's also yet to air in America, I'd wait until ratings there are more of an indicator whether or not they want to keep it

Well even The Mirror didn't confirm it, and even say in the article that the BBC hasn't made a decision. It's all speculation on their part given the ratings and a "source" saying the BBC are disappointed with it.

One of the comments brought up a point. "Also, most of the 1m viewers that watched the first 2 parter on BBC1 probably then watched the rest of the series online, because the entire series is still available to binge watch on BBC3."

I wonder how many viewers did binge it all after discovering it was a thing rather than wait a week to watch it on late night tv?

Maybe you shouldn't have done a cliffhanger without a recommission then, you useless prat.

Can we start a petition so they won't? I doubt Chibbers will want his own version of Who associated with that pile of crap.
