Cuffs star Eleanor Matsuura has reiterated her view that the BBC’s decision to cancel the police drama after just one series was hasty, and says it’s indicative of a wider problem in TV.
Noting that the series had more story in the tank, Matsuura told RadioTimes:
“I thought we had a lot more in the tank, actually, we were quite disappointed they pulled the plug, we thought very prematurely.
“People don’t give shows a chance these days to really find their stride, to find their audience and things are very results-oriented and it’s very hard to be creative and to find your feet as a show. I think people are a lot more cutthroat these days. I thought we were really getting into our stride and finding our audience. We think it was a premature decision. But unfortunately it was pulled.”
