I think they can't be written seriatim -- one just about done before the other is started. They may be done in chunks -- I think I have read (maybe on FB?) that filming is done in chunks, several...

I think that Dominic and Edana had more influence in S2 than any writer today would have.

Caroline's inconsistency seems to me to be largely driven by plot needs, and not to be the writers'...

Martin Clunes has said over and over again that these scripts are intensely, heavily edited -- they go through many drafts. Who reads them and requests revisions? Well, I think probably the...

Not only do he and Phillipa have the plot arc in mind, but I feel pretty sure that the first drafts of at least initial episodes are already written, and they are at least thinking of pinning down...

I have to agree. I'm sure there are exceptions which can (and will) be cited, but generally she is pretty acerbic, austere, unsentimental. She can be compassionate and that shows through...

Highly, highly unlikely that his phobia would be extinguished by the de-sensitization process that he went through. Usually there is a ladder of increasingly difficult stimuli that have to be worked...

My take on the return of the blood phobia is this: it is not really, or just being reminded of his terrible childhood. And it is not about whether or not he has loving family at this point. A...

I missed that little scene -- quite a contrast to his pushing her out of the hospital in a wheelchair at the beginning of S5 -- the proud father with his new little family. But perhaps the scene,...

I guess that's my reaction too -- I'm willing to suspend disbelief, even if quite a lot of suspension is required, if the overall package is appealing enough. And I think one of the charms of the...

Not to worry, Mofromco. Even if they didn't wish to consider the feelings of devoted fans, who would be devastated (most of us) by such an ending, I think they are savvy enough to figure that a...

Nannies and speeches

With the nanny that we first saw in S6, it seemed like they were scraping the bottom of the barrel. I think they were using an agency, as Morwenna said something like, they have no more available...

Is it possible that this malformation was starting to leak even before the sports day blow-up? If so, what would cause this to happen? just random?

You're braver than I, dcdmfan. I haven't rewatched this episode -- found it very painful watching the first time.

I agree it's more usual and funnier to call a male a Diva, but I think the word itself is Italian in origin, and if so, then a male is definitely a Divo, and female a Diva. (Pedantically speaking.)
