Dinnerladies Censoring in Episodes

Hi team,

 

My partner noticed that there are lines edited or removed from the sitcom Dinnerladies that had previously been shown in full.

 

The most obvious one we've noticed is in the episode Royals where the phrase

Spoiler
arseholes on toast

is removed which seems odd given it ties into a later punchline.

What is up with this? Language in the same episode is not removed or censored and other slightly off colour jokes are not removed in other episodes so I'm left kind of confused here.

Hi @mochafrappe 

 

The reply from provider is:

 

This particular episode some mid-level language was removed such as "arsehxxx" and mulitple "efxxxx" uses, as a "gxxg bxxg" reference. This would be an usual practice for daytime versions of any programme.

 

The episode watched by your partner might have been the uncut in later Post watershed slot on the BBC.

 

I hope this makes sense about the content now.

 

Thank you.

Re: Dinnerladies Censoring in Episodes

We've only ever watched the series on NOW as it happens, as we don't have
access to the BBC or to the BBC iPlayer or other British streaming services
as we are not based in the UK.

Was this a recent switch, and is there anywhere we can opt out of
'daytime'/censored versions? It's frustrating to have shows like game of
thrones [rape, gore] on the home page but to have extremely mild language
cut from other programs

If you aren't in the UK then really you shouldn't be able to access NOW, as it will work in the exact same way as iPlayer, BritBox etc. 

 

That being said, I have subscriptions to Paramount+ and Peacock TV in the US.

 

Are you watching the episode Live or on demand?

I think you might have done wires crossed. I can access NOW perfectly fine
here in Ireland... It's advertised all over the place, lol, gets included
in certain deals, we pay in Euro. But iPlayer and the like are geoblocked
here. No VPNs needed.

We have only watched on demand.

@mochafrappe 

Ah right, indeed absolutely got my wires crossed! 

Have to admit I am jealous that you don’t have the iPlayer as an option, mainly cause as I refuse outright to pay the £150 for the license fee!
