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.
Its a travesty that the BBC cancelled Ideal before its natural conclusion!!!
One of the most brilliant shows in TV history thanks to the extraordinary writing and over the top humor from the mind of master Graham Duff, which was given equal justice by the fantastic acting talents of Johnny & Company…It's hard to understand how some mediocre shows manage to survive when masterpieces like this get the ax…You have to wonder what went on in the brains of the "clean sweep geniuses" who were responsible for the cancelation? Hope this petition stays alive until they see the light..nicely, nicely…
please let us see a final episode and allow graham duff to wrap up the loose ends. after so many seasons it would be a more than a shame to leave it as it was without any final episode to tie up loose ends.
