I had been looking forward to seeing Birdsong on TV last night but found it very disappointing. So much of the dialogue was inaudible and was scarcely improved by turning up the volume. The problems were poor enunciation and a reluctance to open the lips. Most of the time Eddie Redmayne's face was completely immobile and rendered the pace of many scenes leaden. I shall make a point of avoiding any future productions in which he stars.
