The Bletchley Circle star "gutted" by axe: "It was a real shame"

By
The Bletchley Circle star Sophie Rundle has admitted that she was "gutted" by the show's axing.

ITV announced earlier this month that the period mystery would not be returning for a third series.

"It was a real shame because we would've loved to have come back," Rundle - who played Lucy - told Digital Spy. "I think we were all gutted."

However, the actress admitted that the cancellation by ITV was "not totally unexpected".

"In the climate that we're in at the moment, it's really hard to get shows re-commissioned," she said. "Doing a second series was a complete bonus - we only thought we were doing a one-off drama."

The Bletchley Circle aired seven episodes across two series between September 2012 and January 2014.

Sophie Rundle stars in Happy Valley - beginning tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
