Just FYI, the HDCAM-SR master of that episode just passed by me and I took the opportunity to check it. There was no sign of anything dodgy in the blacks straight off tape, so it must have been an encoding or transmission funny.

This was “horrible”  not at all down to the device otherwise it would have been at the bottom of the garden long ago.

LCD would explain it. In terms of gamma tracking, most of them have difficulty coming out of black. Which picture mode is it in? (I'm guessing the TV's calibrated given the line of work we're all in?)

I didn't notice anything amiss watching via Virgin TiVo in HD. What platform
were you watching, Graham?
