image for Bones - Gruesomeness "A Step Too Far"

Sky TV bosses were under siege today, fending off complaints about last night's episode of popular forensic drama, Bones.

The show included a graphic scene in which accused murderer The Gravedigger's head was blown apart by a bullet from a sniper's rifle while she was on her way to court.

FBI psychologist Lance Sweets, standing close to her, was spattered with blood, brain and bone and suffered mild signs of trauma.

But this is not what viewers are complaining about.

What they found unpalatable was the admission by prosecutor Caroline Julian that she "soiled" herself when the shooting happened.

Said one viewer: "Yuck! Look - I can cope with exploding heads, bug-infested cadavers, flesh sliding off skeletons and all the rest of it - even when I'm eating my supper.

"But a middle-aged lady admitting she messed her knickers? Oh - I had to run out of the room and throw up!"

Another added: "Completely disgusting - I shall never watch another episode. Until at least next week."

A spokesman for Sky Living said: "It was a very graphic episode - but we agree, it might have been a mistake to broadcast talk of soiled pants.

"We shall be seeking assurances from the show's producers that there will are no more such accidents in future episodes."
