Quirke mumbling was so bad I watched it with subtitles

The writer of Quirke, the latest BBC drama to face complaints over inaudible, mumbled dialogue, has admitted watcing the programme with the aid of subtitles.

Andrew Davies – one of the UK’s best known screenwriters, whose work includes Pride and Prejudice, House of Cards and Bridget Jones Diary – said he and his wife struggled to hear what the actors were saying, and required the assistance of subtitles to follow what was going on.

Quirke, which stars Gabriel Byrne and Michael Gambon, is the latest BBC series to experience mumbling actors and poor sound quality, after Jamaica Inn was hit by the same complaints.
