Was Dwarf cancelled? News It’s something I’ve been thinking about recently, and most likely it’s been mentioned somewhere before but I can’t reacall anything. I mean, Series VIII peaked at 8 million viewers, yeah? So, what I want to know is whether the BBC are chomping at the bit waiting for Doug to accept a commission for a ninth series, or did they actually cancell the series completely with no interest in a ninth? It would be a strange situation to be in to have the BBC wanting a new series but with no one to make it, and the Doug wanting to make a film with no one to commission it.
