Doctor Foster won't get 3rd series

"Doctor Foster" probably won't get a third series.

The second series of the award-winning drama - which receives more than six million viewers each week - is set to wrap tonight (03.10.17) with a shocking twist that'll leave fans begging for more, but screenwriter Mike Bartlett is unsure whether he'll pen another instalment because he doesn't want to kill something that's so good.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he said: "No, I haven't written a third series.

"The BBC has never ever put pressure on us to do more and it's not that sort of show. You could see that at the end of series one. There was just as many people going, "Don't do a series two". It's because people care and I love that.

"There's a lot of trust that we'd only do more if there's a story and a reason. So there's no pressure to do more. We all just focus on the one we're doing and that's a massive amount of work for everybody."

Last week's episode ended on a cliffhanger as it saw Simon Foster (Bertie Carvel) march off in a bid to destroy his ex-wife Gemma Foster's (Suranne Jones) life.

But, in a huge twist right at the end, the deranged doctor - who sought revenge in the first series after finding out her ex had been cheating on her with a younger woman - followed him in her car and appeared to be on the verge of ploughing him down.

It's not yet known whether Gemma will murder her ex, but Suranne did confirm recently that her alter ego's next move may end things for her for good.

She explained: "Tuesday could end this thing totally.

"I'm busy in a play next year and then I go off with Sally Wainwright to the Yorkshire Moors for "Gentleman Jack". I'm not available until January 2019."
