‘Case Sensitive’ actor Darren Boyd has announced on twitter that the ITV1 crime drama has been axed after two series.

Boyd who played DC Simon Waterhouse alongside Olivia Williams as DS Charlie Zailer, tweeted:  “Those of you who enjoyed Case Sensitive, I’m sorry to report that ITV have decided not to make any more. Shame, but them’s the breaks.”

The second series averaged viewing figures of 4.35 million; down on the first series figures of 5.64 million who tuned in.

The series was based on the novels of Sophie Hannah with whom Boyd later tweeted saying: “A real shame we won’t get to explore Charlie & Simon anymore. Was a pleasure and a joy working with you.”
