Brian True-May, the show runner under fire for his comments that the incredibly popular ITV production Midsomer Murders is completely white because, well, it is set in English villages, will not be back. According to the Daily Express, ITV brass thanked him for his work on the show and announced that the current season is his last. "“We welcome the apology from Brian True-May and understand that he will step down from his role on Midsomer Murders at the end of the current production run.” Mr. True-May's remarks caused a flurry of comment, both pro and con, concerning the nature of the show, from viewers and critics. A sampling here from the Daily Express, here from the Independent, and comment from The Guardian.
