THE BBC is "looking into" complaints about problems with the sound on its new crime drama Quirke - just weeks after hundreds of people complained about being unable to hear dialogue in Jamaica Inn.

A corporation spokesman said it had "received complaints from some ­viewers unhappy with the sound quality during Quirke".

He said: "A wide range of factors can influence ­audibility and we are looking into why this should be and whether there are any steps we can take to improve the experience for the audience for episode two.
