Viewers of SAS: Rogue Heroes are complaining that the sound ruined the show

Viewers couldn't wait to get stuck into Steven Knight's new drama SAS: Rogue Heroes, which began on BBC One on Sunday night. But some fans were left disappointed by the sound quality of the show.

The BBC series follows a team of soldiers as they create a brand new special forces unit, roping in the toughest, boldest and most daring fighters for their radical plan.

The six-part series stars Sex Education's Connor Swindells, Jack O'Connell, Alfie Allen, Sofia Boutella, Dominic West, Jason Watkins and Tom Glynn-Carney, who all play the real-life people behind the formation of the SAS in the 1940s.

The show's synopsis explains: "Cairo, 1941. David Stirling (Connor Swindells) - an eccentric young officer, hospitalised after a training exercise went wrong - is bored.

"Convinced that traditional commando units don't work, he creates a radical plan that flies in the face of all accepted rules of modern warfare.

"He fights for permission to recruit the toughest, boldest and brightest soldiers for a small undercover unit that will create mayhem behind enemy lines.

"More rebels than soldiers, Stirling's team are every bit as complicated, flawed and reckless as they are astonishingly brave and heroic."

Despite fans loving the first episode of the new drama, many commented on the sound quality, with some claiming that it was 'inconsistent' and 'difficult to hear'.

One person wrote: "This could have been really good if the #BBC could have got the sound right, can't hear the dialogue, action scenes deafening. Really annoying."

And another said: "Wish the sound was more consistent - either deafening or so quiet we can't hear it!"

Meanwhile a third wrote: "Gave up on SAS: Rogue Heroes due to the sound issues and the need for constant manual adjustments to the volume on my TV: Up...then down...then up…etc."

And a fourth added: "Why is the music so loud but the speaking unhearable?"

Others were divided over the soundtrack, while many loved the music featured on the show - which included a range of AC/DC and Black Sabbath songs - others were unsure.

One person wrote: "I knew the team behind Peaky Blinders would make sure SAS: Rogue Heroes had a great soundtrack, but the number of AC/DC tracks on it is absolutely fantastic. This is gonna be great."

However, another said: “SAS: Rogue Heroes I really don’t think the music, if you call it music or a sound track, even goes [with] this programme!"
