British Telecom (BT) ADSL ISP in the UK is hostile towards BitTorrent traffic ESPECIALLY during peak evening hours.

Make sure you set uTorrent correctly based on your USABLE max upload speed -- 2nd link in my signature. It's probably something awful like 0.25 megabit/sec (256 kilobit/sec) upload max.

Disable Resolve IPs (right-click in PEERS window of a torrent for menu to do this).

Under Preferences, BitTorrent ...Set outgoing encryption to Enabled or FORCED and try both with and without legacy (unencrypted) connections enabled.
