I am often left wondering how the process of TV writing proceeds when so many grammatical errors manage to make it onto the screen. I have just watched an episode of ‘Ambulance’, the award-winning BBC series. The narrator is Christopher Ecclestone, a fine actor who was obliged to say ‘passer-bys’ as clearly the writer was unaware of the plural of ‘passer-by’.
I know it’s not a big deal but when this sort of thing happens, I’m always amazed (and fascinated)that no one involved in the process picks up on it. Any ideas? Or should I contact ‘Points of View’?!
