    Dear BBC

    Thanks for the brilliance that is 'Hidden', absolutely fantastic but...

    Why did you have to ruin the enjoyment and anticipation of having to wait for next weeks episode by sticking so many spoilers in the trailer for next week

    I agree, they leave a cligg-hanger end where Glenister's about to be shot and then show a trailer of him alive and well. I guess we knew he wouldn't be shot as there are two episodes to go but even so. I don't trust Poirot!

    This is one of the reasons I dislike BBC, its adverts for all of their programs (fine thats good, but dont play 6 diff trailers for 1 program effectively showing the whole program!!)

    I'm sure they're setting people up for something. One day there's going to be a huge spoiler in the trailers, then the episode will come up and it'll be completely different.

    Dear BBC,
    I await your full front page coverage of the next Android phone released, covered over 5 days.....purely in fairness for the unending apple publicity you seem to spew.

    they (and most other networks) do it all the time. For instance the 1st episode of merlin this season you see him aparantly dead and then they go this is what happens next week and hes walking round. At a guess its cheap tv but it is really annoying take neighbours for instance (not that i watch it much) but you could watch teh first and last 5 mins of the show and miss the rest out as between the recap and coming next youve seen it all. ive got into the habbit of quickly changing channels as soon as i see the next week bits

    Only 3 Apple stories this week!

    BBC must have some staff on holiday/strike.

    Oh, along the same vein, do we get a discount on our TV licence for the Apple product placement in Spooks, F1 coverage etc etc. Nope, thought not.

    Not as bad as ITV with the amount of adverts they show in their popular programmes now. The mrs has given up on Downton Abbey because of this, even recording and fast forwarding through them is a pita now.
