An internal BBC investigation is underway tonight, after details of the final episode of the Last of the Summer Wine were largely ignored by internet forums.
The last episode will see the show's three main characters die when a scheme to set a land speed record for an enamel bath goes horribly wrong, but so far not one message board on the web has seen any interest.
"Quite frankly we're stunned" Marcia King from the BBC explained. "We thought that the end of the world's longest running and most tedious sitcom might elicit some excitement from people relieved at the chance for some decent - or even half decent - programming on a Sunday night. But so far, nothing."
"Therefore, we're conducting a high level investigation to find out why no-one's interested. It could be because the show's so unremittingly dull that no-one cares, or that the show's fans are unable to use those new fangled computers everyone's talking about."
