Brilliant Series - Chaptering Error!
on 23 September 2010
This is my favourite BBC radio series of all time. The quality is great and it's fantastic to have the unedited shows on CD.
However... be aware that, at the time of writing (September 2010), there is a chaptering error on Disc 2. Episode 4 is supposed to begin at Chapter 11 but actually starts at around 4'35" into Chapter 10 after a pause between it and episode 3.
At least three friends have thought the show has been edited because they were listening to individual episodes. It's there, but just a bit complicated to listen to from the beginning at this stage! For what it's worth, I've sent an email to BBC Audiobooks. They have remastered a disc in the past in response to a problem I brought to their attention with the Sherlock Holmes box set, so fingers crossed.
UPDATE: I've had a relatively positive response from BBC Audiobooks which acknowledges the fault. There is a question mark over whether it is serious enough for a product recall, but the issue is "being investigated." It would be wrong to publish here the email address I used, so might I suggest that, if you are interested in this set, you email BBC Audiobooks customer services via their website. I have, at least, been promised a replacement disc should it be re-pressed.
