I thought that the "feeding gumdrops to a puppy" moment between Georgie Glen and Laurie Grett was powefully acted between the two of them.

Though you could see the "Joe's dad raped me" plot point coming from a mile away.

I am enjoying WR more this season that I expected. I am really impressed with Laurie Bretts acting, I think she has done so well in the storyline. I like Christine and Michael as a couple.

Was really happy to see Scout get her apology, she handled it very well, I though she would have gone balistic. Looking forward to more of Grantley mentoring Dynasty.

Is this as bad as my eyes are telling me? The overacting in the last scene had me in stitches!

They don't even try to make him likable.

Constantly insulting Chalky unprovoked.

And the acting, good god, the acting.

It's not even GCSE standard.

One thing I don't get.....the school moved from Manchester to Scotland. Surely if your job was moving quite a fair distance, you wouldn't work there?

On top of that, the multitude of accents....granted people move around but there are Scouse, Manc, Cockney, Geordie, Posh and Scottish accents! Surely in some parts of the country it's one dominant accent e.g down here it's Westcountry with a few Midland and London accents.

Not being funny but isn't this playing to a stereotype that all Scousers are dodgy?
