BBC The Responder fans forced to shut down over ‘horrifying’ details

Fans of BBC The Responder have been forced to turn the show off – due to a high-pitched sound that hurts their eyes.

During the first two episodes of Martin Freeman’s show, fans flocked to Twitter to complain about the sound effect.

Sean Rhodes said: “TV producers – can you please stop using high sine waves to mean ‘tension’ in your ffs programs. It’s *really* f**** with my tinnitus so bad. #The answering machine – my ears are ringing now. (CC : @BritishTinnitus is this common to everyone?)”

“Did I suddenly have tinnitus #TheResponder,” Gareth asked.
