The BBC hate any form of criticism and won't take it from their own people.
They don't like it from viewers either.

That's why Russell Grant and John Sergeant did so well. A high proportion of viewers see this programme as it is, just an entertaining "Show!"

The positives in this series are, the production values, the scenery, some of the characters, (but no one outstanding) and as a drama, it's watchable.

The negatives are, that to be able to watch a...

Only if I'm swapping channels and come across it by accident. I put in the same category as Harry Hill's clips programme. That has a lot in common with the BBC, a high proportion of repeats.

He's certainly as well known as some of the so called celebrities, so I guess we have to include him in both categories.

Now we can't avoid knowing he's gay, he likes to refer to it when he can, during TV programmes.

Another is Dan Cruickshank. He does it too.

Why do they make a point of it? We don't naffin' care!

It's a non-event.

SCD is a family show. The average BBC viewer I imagine, has no hang-ups over homosexuality. But they don't want it thrust in their faces.
It seem the practice in the world of...

One reported on here as gay, one heterosexual.

Love this clip.

It can only work for the majority of TV audiences with this sort of combination.

Same sex partners?

That's been done before, dancing in a ring round a pile of handbags in the middle.
No one was interested. That wouldn't make good TV, nor would any other same sex alternative. The...

This is more a "Show!" and less of a dance competition. The main object of the exercise is to increase the ratings. Do you not think "controversy" is encouraged? It's good for publicity in the...

The man in the hat was there on Sunday, but he's right at the back now.

You know what the BBC are like, they don't want one of the "support artists" to outshine the so-called stars.
