My opinion only, but given the latest Dr Who episode "Waters of Mars", and the rather action lacking, dialogue driven, virtually one room settings of the first three episodes of Spooks series 8, it would appear that the BBC is cutting program budgets quite severely. Dr Who specials usually disappoint me, but a bit of makeup, contact lenses and a hosepipe down an actor's trousers is plumbing new depths. I can understand why ITV, C4 & C5 are strapped for cash, because they are dependent on falling advertising revenue, but surely the licence fee makes the BBC virtually recession proof? Recent press reports indicate that it has certainly made the pay of their senior managers & directors recession proof, and last time I checked my quarterly direct debits had increased. So why the penny pinching on the flagship programs?

Thought that both Spooks and Dr Who were just as good as ever personally. Can't see how Dr Who was a cheap show tonight.

I think that was the market they were aiming at.

The johnny 5 robot with the back to the future fore trails was embarrassing. Pretty much a filler episode that was pretty forgettable apart from the last 2 mins and the trailer for the next episode which looks a belter. Great to see john sim back.

why the penny piching?

To pay all the top execs expenses. They're even worse than MPs. One spent £6000 on taxis in just 90 days!
