As she gets killed before the opening credits start, it's worth a quick look on itv player plus they put her in possibly the most unflattering dress I've seen in a long time. It's not quite up there with 'death by having wine bottles lobbed at you whilst being staked out on your lawn', but it's a good 'un for Midsomer Murders
Still my favourite MM moment and overall episode.

I think her "death by cheese" was a metaphor for her career, perhaps a rewrite after they had to deal with her behaviour on set. She's not exactly the most well rounded talent with her cheesy acting and it's led to her becoming a taste for a very selective audience to the point her career is dead.

I am sure I recall her turning down Stictly a couple of years ago citing that she was "too busy". I may have posted somehing at the time along the lines of "too many yoghurt ads to film?"

I suppose she wouldn't be able able to skive off Srictly the same way she did My Fair Lady and then get awarded for doing so.

She will be clean / dissolved by 2014. Only a year to get her finances back on track. I suppose every little bit of work pays the creditors and something to live on.

I think she'd literally have to beg BBC for another opportunity given her history with them.

I'm not a bailiff, but I would still smash her back doors in.

This is the bit I don't get. My understanding is that normal, non-celeb people don't have a bankruptcy order dissolved until 6 years have passed irrespective of whether you clear your debts or not. It's something that's meant to stay on your financial records for 6 years, so how is it that hers only lasts a year? Perhaps you get special rates if you're a celeb... Agree with the earlier poster who said she has most likely 'bought' houses and cars for family and close friends so that it seems as if she has no assets that can be used by HMRC as payment of her tax bill. She must not have paid tax for yonks to have a bill of £417k.

I would forgive her anything as she threw up in Mick Hucknells hair (dreadlocks) and she did such a good job of that he had to have it cut off

Being impressed with drunks that vomit on people is a fairly low bar. II personally don't applaud hobos just because they can drink a bottle of whiskey and then urinate high enough for it to land on people's heads because disgusting actions relating to bodily functions are not quite getting a degree to me.

I like Martine but sorry my sympathies lie with those who lose their jobs while buying a house and bringing up their families. Martine must have earned the money to owe the tax, so if she squandered it, it is her fault, she had more than most in her day, so she has to accept the responsibility and try to get work to pay off her creditors who apart from the taxman have their own bills to pay.
I agree entirely. I like her but the comments about 'My Fair Lady' are fair as is the above.

She should not be allowed to simply go bankrupt and run away from her liabilities.

Let's face it, like Anthea Turner, she is hardly likely to end up struggling in a council flat.

Could not have a better agent, if he were to become one.

Most people are discharged after approximately a year, celeb or non-celeb. After that, I think, then people may be asked to continue paying momeny to the insolvency people. It continues to stay on your financial record for, as you say, longer than that

It wouldn't surprise me in the least if she starts appearing in all the magazines with the title "Martine McCutcheon : My bankruptcy hell"

Living it large is a dangerous thing to do. You need to be a strong personality like Big Boy Barry to do that. It can take control of you.

Now this article is more like it: from the Mirror

"If you’re a fan of EastEnders, yogurts and one-hit wonders then you might want to put the kettle on before you carry on reading this sad story."

LOL!
