Besides, that programme has "X-rated" in the title. Doesn't that imply it might be controversial and may offend?

Exactly what I meant re: context. It would be silly to start watering down these kinds of shows when the whole point is to be discussing historical content for a reason.

If it starts a sensible debate then I’m all for it. What’s needed right now is mature and rational discussion.

Not sure if it's a recent or historic edit but watching dinnerladies on Netflix last night with the wife I noticed that series 1 episode 2 (Royals) had some noticeable edits to it. There was one scene part way through where something had been jarringly cut, and also the credits played out in total silence (instead of to audience clapping) suggesting the final scene had been partly or fully cut. As I didn't watch it when first broadcast I've no idea what has since been removed.

That episode, for some reason, has no music in it on Netflix. I think that’s why it seems like there are jarring cuts - it’s just a section that is otherwise covered by music as it goes from one scene to the next. I don’t think anything was cut.

Episode 4 (I think) is the one that will be cut if any are. It’s the one where all the parents are invited in for tea and Philippa’s mother describes her taxi driver as “black as you like with a Lancashire accent”. Obviously the joke is her ignorance but that nuance is usually lost these days.

All the episodes are available on YouTube (I won't link), but even within the first minute of that episode they cut out mentions of Princess Margaret and Fergie.

Edit: Actually it seems nothing was cut, but it seems to be a different take of the scene as there is an obvious difference in the placement of props, maybe the Netflix version is one that was sold abroad?

There was some talk about this on Twitter a little while back, it's quite the oddity.

Seem to recall someone once stated they remembered a line fluff/outtake in an early broadcast of a Dinnerladies episode (followed by a new take and the line being said correctly) that was later edited out of future showings.

Could it be linked to Epstein?

Jeffrey Epstein.


I'd never heard of the guy until about a year ago, nor I suspect 99% of the UK population, so I can't imagine a joke centred around him in Dinnerladies. ?
