Losing a gem!,
This review is from: Ripper Street - Series 2 [DVD] (DVD)
One of the few watchable programmes on tv today, yet its to be scrapped because of ratings?
I was under the impression that the BBC was licence funded and as such, not governed by ratings and instead, aimed to deliver high quality programmes for a vast range of audiences?? They scrap this gem because it got beat in a ratings war with.....wait for it.....I'm a Celebrity!
Why not scrap the pool of fools that moved the programme from a Sunday night to a Monday night?
Ripper Street is a unique and exceptional kind of period drama that is by far some of the best work to come out of the BBC in recent years.
Ditching it to no doubt make way for more cooking, quiz, reality, celebrity and talent puke to vomit from our screens, makes paying that licence fee as difficult to swallow as the one brain cell, seal clapping puss they spend our money on!!
