Sky1’s A Touch of Cloth has been cancelled, according to series lead John Hannah.
The Charlie Brooker cop parody is unlikely to move forward into Series 4, the actor told Digital Spy:
I imagine that’s dead. I think it’s been too long. I loved that show. Charlie wanted to do more, everyone did. It was Sky I guess. There might have been something to do with the negotiations, I don’t know.
“We did the first one, then they wanted a lot more and Charlie wasn’t sure he could sustain it over 12 episodes. So we did two more and then by the third one, they had figured out what they were doing. I think it’s dead, it’s a couple of years since we did that now.”
“Normally when these things go, they go pretty quickly because people have other commitments, and Charlie is busy. It’s a real shame.
