Eve Myles hopes her axed BBC1 drama Frankie could return on a different channel.

The 35-year-old actress, who played district nurse Frankie Maddox, tells TV Times that the cast and crew are keen to make a second series.

“As far as I know it’s completely finished at the BBC,” says Eve, who’s currently starring as Lauren in age-gap sitcom You, Me and Them on GOLD.

“Whether it goes to a different channel… I don’t know. But we have a cast, a crew and a writer who’d like to do more and an audience who’d like to see more.”

Eve was overwhelmed by the furore after Frankie ended after just one series.

“I get asked about Frankie 30 or 40 times a day,” she says. “And when I tell people that the BBC decided not to bring it back, it’s like I’ve kidnapped their child.”
