ATV reports today that the BBC has "no plans at the moment" for a second series of Single Father.

The four-part drama starred former Doctor Who star David Tennant as Dave, a photographer facing the task of bringing up four kids alone after the sudden death of his wife, Rita (Laura Fraser). And things get more complicated when he falls in love with his wife's best friend, Sarah (Suranne Jones).

BBC One aired Single Father in October 2010 on Sunday nights opposite ITV1's triumphant costume drama series Downton Abbey. This obviously didn't help the ratings of Mick Ford's wonderful relationship drama, directed by Sam Miller (1). Particularly with Simon Cowell's juggernaut The X Factor preceding Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes's creation.
