The BBC1 adaptation of EM Forster’s classic novel began on Sunday night, starring Hayley Atwell and Matthew Macfadyen.
But after criticisms were levelled at Blue Planet II last week for its overbearing score, many viewers have been left disappointed by the “screeching” and “inane” music in Howards End, a period drama that centres on class divisions in England at the start of the 20th century.
Although there were others who had no problem with the background score:
