Live television can often come with an array of technical difficulties and on Monday's BBC Breakfast this was certainly the case when presenter Dan Walker interviewed a doctor in Coventry.

Dan, 44, who is usually in the studio with co-host Louise Minchin interviewed medical staff at Coventry hospital. But things did not go smoothly at all for the broadcaster when he could hardly be heard by viewers at home.

The sound became so unbearable that many viewers took to Twitter to compare the sound quality to Dr Who's Daleks.

One viewer chimed: "Ae you interviewing a Dalek?"

Another said: "This segment of #BBCBreakfast was streamed via NTL dialup apparently."

A third questioned: "Are the daleks on tv?"

While someone else said: "I know they say Dan’s interview technique is robotic, but this is ridiculous!"

One viewer was very annoyed that the segment was allowed to continue for so long: "Wtf was that you incompetent clowns! Why wasn't that stopped? Sack the idiot."
