Jennifer Stilwell, Herfordshire

"I'm just not a fan."
Neville Gregory, Manchester



4: Linda Green
(6.50%)


Your Comments

"I think this has to be the worst drama the BBC have ever put on. When I first saw that Liza Tarbuck was going to be the main character I thought 'great', but it is truly boring."
Mary Gaywood, Carrickfergus

"No-one likes to witness a woman desperately trying to get a fella for laughs."
Sinead Cahir, Dublin

"I just don't believe in the characters."
JoJo, Merseyside

"I don't actually dislike Linda Green. I just love all the others too much."
Rebecca Harrison, London

'Spooks' 3: Spooks

Your Comments

"Watched one episode and realised it was a poor copy
of 24!"
Nigel Wyatt, Southampton

"I still can't belive that appaling footage of the young agent being thrown into a deep fat fryer."
Rachel, Derbyshire

"Rubish, unbelievable, give me the money instead, it'll be put to better use!"
Ken Hilaire, Essex

"Unnecessarily violent - this drama was unbelievably bad."
Matthew Williamson, Stockport

"Dire."
Paul Owens, London

"Dreadful ending - not menacing enough."
George MacLean, London

"A teen rip-off of 24 - please BBC, think originally."
Peter Harrison, Devon

"I turned off after a minute of drivel."
Ruth, Hampshire

"If a drama's perfect, like 24 was, then please don't try copying it. Leave it be."
Jamie, West Sussex



2: Silent Witness
(10.67%)


Your Comments

"BBC please give us something else, this seems to have been around for eternity!"
Wendy, Manchester

"Who needs to see dead bodies on a Saturday night?"
Natalie Moore, Merseyside

"Poor acting and gross plots."
Ellen, Cranbrook

"Normally love this but Amanda Burton's acting is getting very wooden."
Karen Thomson, Auchterarder

"Please, no more!"
Simon, Bath

"Boring and dreary!"
Anneka Sheikh, London

"Anything starring Amanda Burton with her long superior looks at the camera and her "holier than thou" attitude is an automatic turn-off. Can she do anything else?"
J Coe, England

"Maybe it's just my age but hey...... boring. I found characters wishy-washy and story lines samey and dragging."
Natalie Wall, Norfolk



'Silent Witness'
'Merseybeat' 1: Merseybeat
(10.90%)

Charlotte Wright, Scarborough

"It's just so bad, no life, storyline is dreadful, acting not good either."
Kelvin Manson, Co. antrim

"Very poor, compared with The Bill / Messiah / Waking the Dead."
Simon Barnes, Essex

"Complete rubbish."
Keri McNeill, Glasgow

"I just didn't like any aspect of it at all."
Keeley Sissons, West Yorkshire
