iPlayer have started adding disclaimers. "The League of Gentlemen is a classic comedy which reflects the broadcast standards, language and attitudes of its time. Some viewers may find this content offensive." I appreciate it's a blanket message across the whole series but there's something a little odd at seeing it before episodes recorded in 2017.

I saw it a few days ago and have just been reminded on my Twitter timeline. Sensibly placed on the website, under the guidance section but on the iPad it feels very much a last-minute quick fix as it just uses the standard iOS alert prompt when you click to watch (with no exit button in case you strangely have a sudden change of heart!). I imagine a future update will match the website.


A commonsense answer. It gives us the choice between watching and not watching instead of robbing us of the option. Now lets see which streaming services have the guts to follow suit.

Why was that not an option for Little Britain? Why is the message ok for some shows yet others get removed?

It is rather fascinating that a show that I could watch, and have previously watched, on Britbox and iPlayer, and was also available on DVD from Amazon, less than a week ago, has now been completely removed from all three sites (the DVD listings seem to have been deleted).

The sketches I found most revolting in Little Britain were Gary and Jason (the David Walliams character in the first series who's in love with his friend's grandmother).


Its not just amazing its terrifying at the speed at how programmes can be cleared. Its as if Britbox et al are saying "lets pretend they were never there... Wrong idea



Its like ITV with Jezza Kyle show. Removed off tv quicker than you can fill in a benefits claim form, all traces removed from the hub, ITV2, the offical youtube channel and other social media. As if it all never existed.


Reminds me of of NBC wiped every remnant of Conan O'Brien's brief tenure as host of The Tonight Show

They put his suit alongside a couple other pieces in a display case at the Race Through New York ride at Universal Orlando.

It’s a small thing, but it shows they haven’t covered it up completely.
