Well there will be no more banished the BBC have cancelled it. Russell Tovey has not taken it well

personally I think it was the only sensible decision they could make ................
James Stott c1775-1850. James was born in Yorkshire but where? He was a stonemason and married Elizabeth Archer (nee Nicholson) in 1794 at Ripon. They lived thereafter in Masham. If anyone has any suggestions or leads as to his birthplace I would be interested to know. I have searched for it for years without success. Thank you.

It got off to a promising start....but by episode 3 it just seemed to go downhill.

Shame really as the subject matter (initially) I found very interesting.

Does it say why? I wonder if a lot of people, like me, watched the first two or three episodes and then didn't bother after that?
