I agree and will do the same, splitting it over two consecutive nights would have been ok but over a week is ridiculous. Squandering ratings by putting it up against Miranda/Mrs Brown was a serious scheduling error that advertisers won't like either.
Crazy isn't it?
Splitting the episodes and putting it up against the BBC's comedy hour is almost encouraging
viewers to record it and skip the adverts.
The only downside for me is that I'll have to wait two weeks before watching the next episode because I'll want to watch it in it's entirety.
I wonder what made the schedulers do it this way? It's as though they're treating one of their rare gems with contempt.
