whispered lines in films/dramas

Hopefully not a repeat rant,i did do a search first.

Just finished first series of Hard Sun on bbc which i really enjoyed....but so often the actors whispered their lines or spoke so quietly i had trouble making out what they said. I'm sure even the person they were speaking to had trouble hearing what they said....and then did exactly the same!
Is this done to seem more dramatic? Why can't they just speak at a normal level? Alot of good bits of dialogue ruined by speaking at a barely audible level. This seems to happen so often in films and tv dramas now.
I'd rather not resort to subtitles but may have to.

Sound seems to have become a lost art on TV and film.

Horrendously too loud soundtracks like BladeRunner 2 and terrible muttered dialog.


Modern thin TV also don't help audio.

A soundbar or soundbase with proper dimensions really improves dialog clarity
and allows you to listen at lower volumes.

Rubbish plotline anyway.....but what is it with this whispering?? It’s quite trendy, at the moment. Often American-varity whispering - and croaking. Maybe to hide the banal, vapid dialogue......?

Yeah speakers on my tv totally bobbins, usually have sound going via my hi-fi which improves things greatly
