On it goes . . . Today it's Melanie Phillips in a half-page piece in The Times, entitled "How dare the BBC mess with my favourite book". Usual stuff, but Ms Phillips is a hard-hitter:
"That is why renaming her [Titty] is a kind of sacrilege. It airbrushes her out and replaces her by someone else. Excising her name in a pointed sensitivity to any smutty overtone also corrupts the very innocence at the core of the story."
I wonder why Christine Langan or Nick Barton, or someone from the film producer's office, has not replied to this press onslaught? Is it because there is no such thing as bad publicity?
