I realise this might sound a bit cruel to some, but part of me hopes that if they had filmed any Series 5 episodes, they don't show them. It would just be too painful to watch, knowing she died so shortly after.
The BBC isn't going to throw the money they spent on the SJA
episodes down the drain like that, not in this time of austerity and budget cutbacks. The BBC broadcast the final season of Father Ted
, even though Dermot Morgan died the day after filming the final episode, after all. I don't see anything insensitive about an autumn broadcast of the episodes.
