BBC bosses who recently cancelled drama Ripper Street have been left a little embarrassed after the series topped a best of British TV poll. The period crime drama was cancelled in November (13) after two seasons due to low ratings, but it has beaten out Doctor Who, Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones in a new Radio Times online survey. More than 7,500 readers took part in the survey and Ripper Street picked up 35 per cent of the votes. Another BBC period crime show, Peaky Blinders, finishes second on the poll and Doctor Who comes in third. Broadchurch and Breaking Bad round out the top five.
