The BBC and HBO have axed comedy drama Rain Dogs, from writer Cash Carraway, after one series.

The series is love story between a working class single mum, her 10 year old daughter, and a privileged gay man and starred Daisy May Cooper, Jack Farthing, Ronke Adekoluejo, Adrian Edmondson and Fleur Tashjian.

Costello Jones (Daisy May Cooper) is a writer and single mother with a rock and roll swagger and a glint in her eye, a woman who appreciates the glamour of the gutter but would do anything to keep her daughter, Iris, from it.

Selby (Jack Farthing) is a boarding school boy educated on Brett Easton Ellis and Goddard, Costello’s loyal soulmate and loving tormentor. Gloria (Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo) is Iris’s chaotic, directionless and utterly glorious godmother who’s running out of second chances. Iris (Fleur Tashjian) is a hustler in kid’s clothing who loves South Park, William Morris wallpaper and, more than anything, her mum.

A source told The Sun: "It’s disappointing for Daisy as Rain Dogs was a good opportunity to make some inroads in the US. But unfortunately, it didn’t rate too well on both sides of the pond..

"So the production company behind it, Sid Gentle, agreed with Cash it was time to move on. Some critics praised the writing but ultimately it just didn’t pull up any trees."

Rain Dogs is available on BBC iPlayer.

That's an awful, stupid decision, it's incredibly good. I found it on a 'best of '23' list. It was, too. Just growling that into the universe.
