29 Jan – Rumours of impending censorship has proven to be true, as it was reported that TVB's controversial drama, "Inbound Troubles" have suffered from heavy editing for its first four episodes in mainland China.

According to Popular Asians website, it was revealed that approximately 10 minutes of footage from the first four episodes were cut from its mainland broadcast, including the scene where Wong Cho Lam's character, Choi Sum came across some Hong Kong protesters rallying outside a clothing store.

The censored scene reportedly was inspired by an actual controversy that occurred in January last year, when the staff at Dolce & Gabbana stopped Hong Kong citizens from taking pictures in front of their shop, but allowed mainland Chinese tourists to do so – sparking a rise of anti-mainlander sentiment.

However, despite the cuts and complaints, "Inbound Troubles" has already achieved an average of 1.92 million viewers in its first week of broadcast and sparked rumours of a movie version in the making.

"Inbound Troubles" is currently airing in mainland China through TVB's overseas channel and Chinese video streaming websites.
