Try closed captioning/subtitles. I watch a lot of subbed anime so I can say it's really not bad to need to watch text as you are watching the action, you get used to it.

I had issues when I watched a few episodes on tv before (not just this season). But I haven't had that problem watching them on my computer.

Huh, I haven't noticed that at all. Do you watch it on TV or do you DL?

Same here. Just this one programme, none of the others. I rely on body language and context. I like the stories, I just can't understand what's happening in the moment!

I've had this problem with DW before too, and Sherlock. The music and background noises drown out the dialogue and/or the dialogue is too mumbled. I figured it was just a BBC thing?

I've had this problem with Doctor Who since Capaldi started.

I've been complaining about the balance in Doctor Who for ages - and you're right, Sherlock is also not great. Even Happy Valley, which is serious drama, had its moments (and I lived in that part of the world, the problem wasn't the dialect). It does seem to be a BBC issue, and I wish they'd sort it out.

They mumble, speak softly and quickly. I rewind constantly to catch the dialogue, especially Capaldi. But I'm loving this season!

It's a habit of mine to have the closed captioning on, so I've been able to follow what's going on, but I've also noticed that the music's been pretty loud. It's kind of annoying, but the season's been really good so far.

It rocks, but yeah, there is something wrong with the sound this season. I have to pay attention a lot more than I'm used to doing.

All BBC shows have closed captioning, which is awesome for me!

I've noticed this can be a problem with a lot of British productions for some reason, but I don't know why. The dialogue tracks seem a little soft or muffled even if the background music isn't that loud. It's like trying to listen to a conversation between two people at the end of a long tunnel.

It seems to be a current fashion at the BBC. It's really annoying. I don't know why - possibly they're trying to make it sound more naturalistic - but I wish they'd stop. They used to be able to get it right!

Not to be rude to the fans, but every time I see a DW secret I'm surprised that it's still going. Even if it's two days in a row.

I've noticed Capaldi's accent is much thicker this year.
