DAY­TIME RAT­INGS PH­WOAR

BBC ac­cused of sex­ing up Doc­tors to pull in view­ers

Midweek Sport - - SUNDAY'S UNMISSABLE - By REX ROW­LANDS

But ac­cord­ing to clean up TV cam­paign­ers it’s be­come steadily more saucy in the last 12 months.

Scenes crit­i­cised in­clude 52-yearold Jan Pear­son’s char­ac­ter Karen Hollins strip­ping down to a basque.

Other episodes in­clude a les­bian kiss be­tween Danielle Henry and Lu Cor­field, as Mandy Mar­quez and Dr Freya Wil­son, Kate (Emily Lawrence) in just a bra, and Mar­garet Clu­nie as Mary Dixon romp­ing in her undies.

TV cam­paigner James Arford said: “The BBC are clearly chas­ing rat­ings, more and more peo­ple are out of work and they are try­ing to draw those view­ers in with sex.

“It’s an­other ex­am­ple of the BBC push­ing their left­wing lib­er­tar­ian views down our throats.

“We don’t need this when chil­dren are watch­ing, or at any­time re­ally.”

A BBC in­sider said: “This is a load of non­sense Doc­tors re­flects real life. Real peo­ple have sex, it’s non­sense.” SOAP bosses at the BBC have been ac­cused of turn­ing day­time soap into a raunch-fest to lure in more view­ers.

The show, about a GP’S prac­tice in the fic­tional Mid­lands town of Leather­bridge, is known for its gen­tle sto­ry­lines and fam­i­lyfriendly plots.
