As some of you may have heard, the BBC have decided against commissioning an 8th series of Ideal. The reason given was that the new channel controller wanted to make a clean sweep.
It is a source of both pride and frustration that, at the point of cancellation, Ideal was attracting its biggest ever audiences, its highest profile guest stars and its best ever reviews. And the show is now being screened in more countries than ever before - from America to Finland and beyond.
I just want to say a huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who has appeared in the show and worked behind the scenes over the last 7 years and 53 episodes. And a very special thanks to everyone who has supported the show and spread the word. We really wouldn't have got this far without you.
It's been a truly wonderful journey and to work with such a genuinely amazing team has been both an honour and a solid hoot.
love this series and very disappointed with the comments from bbc 3, why do they want to axe a well rated hit tv show for some of the shit bbc3 comedies that are out now.. not being funny but wilfred wasn't really an improvement of the ideal i love. apart from russell howard i will try avoiding bb3 for the axe of graham duffs amazing ideal ...
Please bring it back - most original tv in years
BBC robbing bastards could have at least do a wrap up episode .... And scrap the rest of sh*te instead.
