Was this Called For BBC? Doctor Who

At the most tension packed moment of the program, the BBC advertise Over The Rainbow by featuring an animted Graham Norton, destroying the tension and p*ssing off fans everywhere! The BBC are sucking ass more and more.

It's annoyed me enough to complain. I mean. at the most tense part of the episode..." what don't you want in a trap", oh that's right , bloody Graham Norton!

couldn't they have waited 20 seconds and done it over the credits!

what a bunch of (you fill in the rest!)

Please complain everybody!! I went straight onto the BBC web site and filed a complaint - and it's the first time I've ever complained to the BBC. I bet Steven Moffat is furious too - all that effort, all that buildup, only for a stupid little trailer to break the spell. One of the best things about the BBC is that you CAN (or should be able to) watch a drama all the way through without it being broken up by adverts!

They do this ALL the time in the U.S. and it is freakin annoying.

Graham Norton again? First "Rose" and now this. Fortunately, I was watching on BBC HD, so the cliffhanger went as The Moff intended.

I hope BBC 1 can do something about this so it won't be repeated in "Flesh and Stone" and all other future episodes.

I found Graham Norton very very scary, scarier than the Weeping Angels!
BBC don't do this again!

I'm sure this didn't happen while I was watching it. Either because I just didn't notice or because it was just BBC Scotland.

i saw it but it didn't affect me too much the tension was still their it didn't take much away it was just a little stupid thing I am not to bothered if it appears again but it is stupid of the BBC.

I can't imagine the higher ups on the DW team agreed to such a rude annoyance, unless it's the price of doing business on the BBC.

They did this here in the US during an episode of Lost (I mean they do this all the time, but here's one story). It was during an equally dramatic scene where something was being revealed. There was writing on a note that we, the audience were supposed to see. They had this huge count down to the V premiere and covered the whole thing! They got TONS of feedback. How could they be so stupid as to ruin their own show. I know they'll keep doing it, but maybe they'll think more about where and when they do.

Are you guys SERIOUS?! That little thing is what you're upset about? Psh. I wouldn't have even noticed it was there unless I read this and had someone pointing it out to me.

OMG I know, I'm so glad I watched it on BBC HD, thank god lol :D

I complained anyway, It's not right to show a bloody advert over the best bit, they could have shown it at the end - or not at all as it was on straight after anyway!!! lol :)
