As we reported over the weekend fans of The Bill have come together to launch a campaign to try and save the veteran police drama. On Friday ITV announced it was axing the police drama after 27 years following a failed revamp last year. The Bill will end its run on ITV1 in the Autumn but fans of the series are hoping that another broadcaster, such as Five or the BBC, will step in and pick up the series. Several groups were launched on Facebook to try and save the series and so far the biggest group has nearly 5000 members. [Updated: nearly 6000 people have now joined the group].
