here is the complaint i just sent to them. i never normally do this, but they've pissed me off once too often. enjoy...
I was wondering if you could explain why it was thought to be a good idea to show the "Farscape" episode "Scratch and Sniff" at 11.20 on Saturday night (23/11/01), rather than in the regular 6.45 Monday night slot. As a result of this change and not being informed about it, I missed the episode, as I am sure several other people may have done. I could understand if, perhaps, the content was unsuitable for the early time slot (obviously, I wouldn't know...), but if this is the case, why not show the programme at a later time? I suppose I should be grateful that the series' episodes are being shown in the correct order after the fiasco with the third series of "The X-Files", as the continuity of "Farscape" is tricky to follow at the best of times. This has not been helped, therefore, by the random re-scheduling of episodes with no forewarning. An explanation would be greatly appreciated.
May I also thank you for taking "Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased)" off the air for three weeks only to show one episode when it came back. Would it not have been more sensible to simply show the series a week earlier?
i. hate. the bbc.
