I agree. I think James Nesbitt is outstanding in this, and the reviews all praise his acting highly.

That bothered me too. It was far too prominent and destroyed the overall effect. She should have blended it in more with the furniture, instead of almost making a feature of it.

I thought the room...

I totally agree that Edith and Mr Drewe didn't really think the thing through at all. They should have either put Mrs Drewe in the picture and made it clear from the start that Edith would be very...

I have to say I thought that bit was brilliantly done. It captured that initial sense of disbelief, then certainty that he's just run off and you'll find him in a minute, and then the horrible...

It could have been one of those 'favourite' possessions that small children insist on bringing everywhere with them.

I'm not really following. My argument was that Edith was driven by despair and loneliness and wasn't thinking straight and that 'class' or 'disdain' for the Drewes feelings didn't come into it. She...

Out of interest, if a working class girl had handed her illegitimate baby over to foster parents even though she really loved her, then at a time of terrible grief and aloneness had snatched the baby...

I don't think anyone is saying that what Edith did was alright, or was fair to the Drewes. Some of us just feel that she was driven to the edge by a tragic and difficult set of circumstances...

I love having a nice long slow burning series to settle into for the Winter nights. It allows several strands to unfold and be neatly tied together at the end, and plenty of time for character...

I think we'll have to disagree on that. Mary was cruel in a cold and calculating way. Edith was cruel in an unthinking, griefstricken, despairing way in my opinion. I felt really sorry for Mrs Drewe,...

I agree that Edith walked all over Mrs Drewe's feelings and it was horrific to watch. But it wasn't done in a cold and calculating way. Edith was griefstricken, had been treated with no compassion by...

I agree she doesn't have a rapport, but I think that's down to diffidence more than superiority. And Mary's rapport is mainly with Anna who is her personal maid. I have never seen her having much of...

I don't agree. During the war she was the one who learnt to drive a tractor and fell for the farmer teaching her. She was also equally good at communicating with all the patients in the hospital,...

He is acting. But he wants to have some understanding of the person he's meant to be portraying. Nothing wrong with that.

Normally I find him very dull and all his guff about Ireland and republicanism just lip service while he lives in great comfort in Downton Abbey.
However, I warmed to him this week because he was the...

I hadn't copped that the wife's new partner was the policeman with the little boy she ran after in France!

I thought James Nesbitt was superb in this and I hope he gets a Bafta nomination. I agree...

Even if Tom doesn't actually go to America, I have a feeling it will come up as an issue. They have shown two affectionate scenes between Sybie and 'Donk', so they're possibly setting up a bit of...

I'm enjoying this, but more for the 1950s setting and the complex relationship between Sidney and Amanda than the murder storylines which are pretty simple and not that interesting.

I think Marigold is meant to be about 18 months or so. So Gregson would only have been gone for just over a year and 'missing' for less than that time. In fact IIRC they stated in the programme last...
