(Series 21, ep. 7 ‘Good Side’ by Ed Sellek 12.2.19) Before you head over to Metro for this week’s review, I have a few more random thoughts about the episode.
– Call me a horrible person if you like (only do it behind my back rather than to my face), but the ‘shall we switch Holly off?’ story irritated me a bit. I know it’s dramatically huge and is a heartbreaking decision for anyone in that situation. But scene after scene of Ange looking anguished gets a bit trying, doesn’t it? And why does hot-shot Ange need Fletch to tell her that it’s her job to make the tough decisions?
– I enjoyed Mr Burman-Roy. He was a properly funny, eccentric character and he gave Cameron a much-needed reality check.
– I also enjoyed Carole Copeland, who is always glorious. Her scenes with Zav were lovely.
– Line of the week was Hanssen to Zav: ‘You have glitter.’ I know it doesn’t look like a great line on paper, but it was the way he said it. Magnificent.
