What a let down!
on 8 May 2011
Although the contents of this series are just as entertaining as ever, a lot of the atmosphere is destroyed even before each episode opens. The original theme that was used when the series was first broadcast was Rod Stewart's excellent version of the song, "Sailing". That song, over the opening scenes, I feel, made the show.
They now use a rather bland, military band version of the tune. There is a tiny notice on the packaging that just says "Edited for contactural reasons", but no specific details. A great pity because I feel the music they have used destroys the show.
Be warned - if you were expecting Rod Stewart to sing you in - think again before buying this version.
