A rebuke for Dr Who, but why wasn't Engelbert roasted? (1977)

1977-01-04 Guardian.jpg

[edit]

Sir,—Your report (December 29) stated that Sir Charles Curran, in reply to Mrs Mary Whitehouse's complaint of an alleged sadistic scene in Dr Who, admitted to it being "too realistic."

In these circumstances, one wonders if the "head of the department responsible would also "with hindsight ... have liked to have cut out" a sadistic scene shown on BBC-2 on Monday, December 27, when a woman was pushed into an oven and flames were shown consuming her.

I refer to the excellent production of Humperdinck's Hansel and Gretel,—Yours faithfully,

Ossle Lewis.

Cheam. Surrey.
