Sheridan Smith + terrific actress.

Are you a relative of hers?

Both her and Will Mellor were wooden in the awful Two Pints of Lager sitcom and neither were any better in Dates.

Although I agree the programme did have good stories and will watch the remaining episodes.

Yes, that wasn't convincing at all. However, Sheridan Smith once again demonstrated that she is a terrific actress.

New series Frankie is complete rubbish.

Cardboard cutout characters that are entirely without redeeming features, unrealistic and unbelievable plot lines and totally inaccurate portrayal of District Nursing.

Apart from that.....

 

New series Frankie is excellent.

Bizarrely after it plumbed new depths of turgidity, predictable yet totally unrealistic storylines and shockingly poor acting last night Mrs Shadow's first reaction was "there's no way that girl would have had a district nurse visiting her"

My suggestion that the accuracy of health team call planning was the least of the problems with the entire bag o shoite fell on deaf ears.

Exactly
The insides of their houses looked like something out of grand designs

And there just happened to be a chapel in the woods

And the king just happened to be riding by

Etc etc

No I don't care if you're if you're into different bands

No cause for so much hatred, I'm just a different man

Pull off that cover, I will too, and learn to understand

With music deep inside we'll make world unity our plan
