I wish someone was paying attention

I'm kind of liking these Barchester Chronicles - though they're definitely not the thing to choose when you're looking for excitement in your life - but this is the second one I've purchased and the second one which apparently no one bothered listening to before they released it.

It says this is 6 hours long; in fact, it's 2.5 hours of the 'Doctor Thorne' storyline; then 2 hours of the same episodes, repeated; then .45 hours of a completely unrelated episode.

I've given up now, and used this month's credit to purchase the 'complete' Barchester Chronicles - perhaps that will solve the problem.

However, if you DO like these BBC-type period dramas - if you're a big Lark Rise to Candleford fan, for example - these are quite good. Just be aware you're not actually getting 6 hours' worth of episodes.
