Speaking at the 2013 Television BAFTAs in London last night, Romola Garai said of her time on the drama: “It was an amazing experience: a fascinating period of history, amazing actors, one of the best writers writing in television at the moment.
“It’s very sad [that the show has been cancelled] but these things happen. You just have to be grateful and glad that you got the job in the first place and you had a wonderful time making it.”
Co-star Peter Capaldi, who was nominated for a BAFTA for his portrayal of head of news Randall Brown, said: “We had plans to take it into the 60s, move to Television Centre. That would have all been good fun. There might be a chance to do a one-off catching up on some of the characters. It’d be fascinating to see them doing Panorama or something like that.”
Garai agreed: “We could do [a one-off episode]. The show was never intended to end as a cliffhanger so it’s really sad that you don’t get to finish off the storylines. Abi was always talking about taking it much more into the 60s: huge social changes.”❞
