Bodmin, We Have a Problem

Jamaica Inn

The BBC is apologising for sound issues with its adaptation of Jamaica Inn.

It is after 800 viewers complained about actors mumbling, while around a quarter turned off by the time the second episode was aired.

Now the controller of drama commissioning is admitting there was a problem with the series - and not just that it was set in Cornwall but mostly filmed in Cumbria.

Ben Stephenson said: "If no one can understand what they're saying, then there's a problem.

"I think actors not being clear is one part of it, but my understanding about the complaints about Jamaica Inn was more complex than that, so I think it's probably not right to just single out that.

"Of course we want [actors] to give brilliant performances and you've got to respect that, but if no one can understand what they're saying, then there's a problem."
