Gentleman Jack viewers were furious after the show’s beloved theme song was interrupted following the first episode of series 2.

The Suranne Jones drama returned to BBC One on Sunday night after two years away and many were excited to get into the groove of the music as the credits rolled.

However, no sooner as the track Gentleman Jack by Yorkshire-based folk duo O’Hooley and Tidow began, it was drowned out by an announcer.

‘Gentleman Jack back next Sunday at nine,’ the voiceover declared, prompting the theme song to be turned down.

‘Before then, follow the rocky road of a modern day relationships,’ they continued. ‘Nicola Walker and Stephen Mangan star in The Split. The new series, ready for you now, on iPlayer.’

Gentleman Jack fans vented their frustrations on social media shortly afterwards, with one writing: ‘Every time. What is the point of commissioning a fantastic theme song for #GentlemanJack when the @BBCOne continuity announcer talks all over it!’

Echoing a similar sentiment, another blasted: ‘Excuse YOU, don’t talk over the music.’

Despite the disturbance, Gentleman Jack’s return to the small screen was a welcomed treat for many.

‘Where did that hour go? #GentlemanJackIsBack with a bang. Like it’s never been away,’ one fan exclaimed.

Every time 🤬

‘First class drama, tip-top cast, beautifully written and directed. There’s trouble in store for Anne Lister and Ann Walker and we are here for it. Love it!’

Another penned: ‘A fantastic return of #GentlemanJack. Superb performances by all. #GentlemanJackIsBack!’

Gentleman Jack is back with episode two of series two on Sunday, and it looks like there will be trouble in paradise.

‘The couple’s honeymoon is disrupted by the arrival of an old flame of Anne’s, who threatens to reveal all the secrets of her complex romantic history,’ the synopsis teases.

‘Back in Halifax, Ann’s family hatch a plan to marry her off to a man as soon as she is back in the country.

‘Over at the Sowden’s farm, Suzannah is consumed with regret about moving in with Thomas, whose dark temper frightens the family.’

Gentleman Jack airs Sundays at 9pm on BBC One.
