(Series 36 ‘Balancing the Scales’ by Simon Norman 5.3.22) Please head over to Metro for my review. But first…
Line of the week: (Marty knows how to deal with a bigot) ‘[We’ll get to you] straight after the Polish gays, the gypsy bar-mitzvah and the non-binary bus crash, how’s that?’
Line of the week 2: (Stevie is unimpressed by Matthew) ‘Who’s going to play you in the movie?’
This episode was quite like a movie, in fact. The flashback sequences were very cinematic.
There’s something about Matthew that makes it hard for me to sympathise with him. I never feel like we get under the skin of his character somehow, and frankly he should have been suspended at least twice in this episode alone.
Whereas I couldn’t love Rash more. He’s gentle and kind and always ready to help other people.
And Marty dealt beautifully with his horrible old patient and his son.
