I just don't think we'll see a second series.
I'm surprised it ever got a first series.
That's not to say it's no good: it's actually very good indeed.
When it comes to writing plain, honest and very funny British comedy-drama, Derren Litten has no equal in my book.
His style of comedy isn't everybody's cup of tea but I have to give him credit: he's the best in the world at what he does.
So why am I surprised Scarborough was ever commissioned?
There are people at the BBC who think Derren and his sense of humour are not what the British public should be exposed to in this modern day and age.
Having said that, Derren is a big-name in TV comedy and he deserves to be because his talent is huge: he puts millions of bums on millions of seats. Accordingly, there are those at the BBC who want to keep him.
Having said that, Julius Caesar was a big name in ancient Rome but, when the knives are out, the knives are out.
