Why Was It Cancelled? This show barely registered in the ratings in the U.S. on BBC America, averaging only a 0.08 rating during its first season run. Of course, the numbers in the States were not as important to its survival, but it did little better across the Atlantic in Britain. It started out in its home country pulling one million viewers for its premier, but it had dropped to 300K by the end of its run, which was well below the 800K number that timeslot typically averages. BBC decided to cancel the show due to low viewership.
