The BBC has reportedly decided to not commission a second series of Just William.

According to the Radio Times, the Simon Nye-penned adaptations of the classic Richmal Crompton novels will not be returning.

A four episode run of the show, which starred Outnumbered's Daniel Roche in the title role, aired in a lunchtime slot over the festive period. Rebecca Front, Linda Gree, Warren Clarke and Caroline Quentin all featured in the production.

Commissioned originally by CBBC, who are limited in the number of dramas that they can produce, the show failed to pick up 2 million viewers.
