    For two weeks i got right into the new BBC Drama series, The Good Cop, it was different and I really felt for Warren Brown, (who is fast becoming a upcoming frequent Actor) who portrayed his anger, silently and wanting to make his colleagues killers brought to justice and deservedly so.

    When the 3rd episode was due, I was looking forward to finding out the conclusion, got my nights viewing sorted and all settled to watch and enjoy this "different" cop programme.
    But, just as the programme was about to be aired, an announcement was made, it was to be "shown at a later date"

    NO reason was given, and I was furious that two comedy programmes were shown instead.

    I know now, what the reason was, and whilst i can sympathise with the families for the "reason for the programme being pulled" was a comedy a reasonable replacement?

    Can we please have this programme shown soon, before we actually forget the storyline, and with good advance warning?
    Don't stick it on at "stupid o'clock" and not let us have notification.
    Why not, cancel a Sport programme (as we've had our fair share this summer) and show it then??

    yours very very fed up with poor TV

    I am surprised you didn't know the reason at the time and is it not the 4th episode that has not been shown?

    There is a long running discussion on this and the answer to your question can be found here
