The cast of Eternal Law, wings 'n' all

In an act that must surprise virtually no-one, ITV has announced it's not going ahead with a second series of its supernatural legal drama, Eternal Law.


The series, created by the Ashes to Ashes team of Matthew Graham and Ashley Pharoah, was cancelled after failing to attract big enough audiences.


The series averaged a consolidated audience of 3.71m over its six-part run, according to Barb figures. The ITV1 average for the Thursday 9pm slot is around 4.84 million.


Actor Samuel West, who played angel Zak Gist, said on Twitter, "Alas there will be no more Eternal Law. Not enough people watched it. A thousand thanks to those of you who did, and said such kind things."


It's the second axing blow for Graham and Pharoah's Monastic Productions, after the similarly slated Bonekickers was canned in 2008.
