BBC1 was truly shocking last night. Finish of Strictly and Merlin and no Dr Who leaves a massive hole in the scheduling.
Other channels not much better
Such a good point. Does nobody in the BBC actually have a diary, and do a bit of forward planning or thinking? Why is everything geared up to climaxing just before Christmas exactly? Here you have the darkest and coldest nights of the year in January and February, with surely the likeliest captive possible TV audience, but as soon as festivities are over, little effort seems to be made, and for BBC1, supposedly the premier channel this is shocking, and cuts or no cuts is no excuse! I watch BBC4 more nowadays. BBC1 is not filling it's remit, and is a generic unchallenging conveyor of the same uncreative output most of the time, with just a couple of exceptions.
