Its political correctness. They don't want adverse publicity because someone got upset and wrote a stiff letter of complaint. I imagine the friends and family of the kidnapped child would indeed get upset at such a storyline - they've got reason. I think most people who write in over this would mean well but really ought to be sympathetic and helping rather than sticking their oar in. These days I guess the BBC has no choice. The kidnapping is after all still in the headlines of the media.

Indeed a storyline that was planned for the long-running soap, Coronation Street, was also rewritten at the 11th hour due to the Maddie kidnapping. So it affects all channels, not just the BBC.

 

Nephele - I am sure they will screen the episode in question in a couple of weeks or so when the story of Maddie is less sensitive.
