(Series 22, ep. 15 by Becky Prestwich 2.6.20) It’s back! And I’m back on Metro reviewing it so please have a look. But before you go…
– I absolutely love John Michie as Guy Self and I’m really glad they keep finding ways to bring him back. Despite everything he’s been through, despite the little mention of Zosia and his grandchild, he’s still an ego on a stick and I love that.
– I love Kian too, but as always when Jac embarks on a new romance I find myself conflicted because as far as I’m concerned Joseph is the only man for her. Though of course we wouldn’t want her to waste her life pining and waiting for Faye to get bored of him again.
– Sacha is adorable. He warmed Essie’s socks on the radiator!
– When Essie asked Fletch to come dancing with her I found myself pondering for far too long over what kind of dancing that would be. A techno rave? An American Smooth under a glitterball? A side-to-side shuffle around Essie’s handbag to Kajagoogoo at a retro disco at Albie’s?
– But I am worried about Fletch though.
– Was getting Donna to delete Zav’s message the wormiest thing that Cameron has done so far? Has the man no shame? Luckily what he lacks in shame he also lacks in knowledge of how mobile phones work.
– Hanssen’s face in response to mention of the Kardashians!
– Fraser Ayres was brilliant as Alan, Selfie’s patient. The pain and distress he was in looked absolutely real.
– Jason so often knows the right thing to say or do when people are grieving. He doesn’t overthink or second-guess how people are feeling and how they’ll respond, he just goes with what he thinks will help and it almost always does. ‘You did a beautiful, beautiful thing,’ as The Radiant Donna told him.
