I'm not grabbing/clutching at straws. I follow politics a lot and I know a lot of things are announced well in advance about when they are going to be done.

I was stuck on the phone for well over an hour being made to do something that I am sure was unnecessay about my online security while todays episode was on and I had to keep on lowering the volume but the bits I did get to see and hear had me roaring out with laughter.

I can't believe Kevin wasn't whooping with joy when his stupid car was nicked! He should have been overjoyed that someone had taken it off his hands and he could have put in a claim for it. Though if he doesn't have protected no claims, it might not be such a good move. What does Kevin see in the car? The programme must be having a laugh at the character's expense me thinks.

Then, that bit where Kevin thought he was going to get a lift in a car with that guy and he gave him that helmet! The look on Kevin's face had me roaring out with laughter too!

I would have loved to have seen Kevin on the back of a motorbike and they should have filmed the scene and what would have really topped it was if Howard and Heston came up alongside them on another bike with both of them on it too!

If it was a BMW, Audi or something like that, I'd understand his love of that car.

I'm amazed he didn't do a Basil Fawlty on it that time he got well lost, but I suppose that was more down to his phone and what he downloaded onto it but didn't the car break down too that time?

i so saw that coming re the transgender lady today. the minute she freaked about marriage and she had a scarf round her neck- big red flag! i really hated the ending too. i looked away for a second; thinking it would work out and the bloke just left her, kevin was sorting out his car, and the lady with depression was left to her own.

I must admit I didn't spot the trans gender lady, but this being Doctors I shouldn't have been surprised. Just how many trans gender / cross dressing stories are we going to get. There must be one on every street in Letherbridge . At least we got a realistic reaction from that bloke. I was expecting him to tell Stella that it didn't matter and he still loved her whatever sex she was .

I didn't understand the Kevin and his stolen car story . Is there something about his car we are supposed to laugh at , I'd never noticed his car before .

I must admit I didn't see it coming, but I thought his reaction was realistic - Stella is a man because he still has the meat and two veg. Even without it he'd still be a man - you can't alter your chromosomes with hormone tablets.

Really enjoyed today's episode. I had seen this coming all the way with Sam & Emma but the execution was still great.

I thought Emma's reaction a little cruel.

I suppose it was the shock which made her do that. However she has said before that she's been allowed to have affairs, so it shouldn't really come as such a shock to Sam. The whole 'open marriage' thing is a bit odd though - they obviously love each other, so why would she want to stray?

I felt a bit sorry for Mrs Parkinson. They'd probably make a nice couple.


ETA - The opening credits clip with Emma doesn't do her justice. She doesn't really suit that heavy fringe, but the way she has her hair with the fringe softened and off to one side with the rest of her hair up makes her look like a completely different person.

Today only confirmed why I don't like Emma, cruel reaction to her husband unfeeling toward Howard, and rude about her son into the bargain, until of course Sam made the great announcement and then she used Chris's supposed opinion as a bludgeon against Sam!!! Heston was a pratt today, but why am I not surprised. Enjoyed the scenes with Jimmi and Kevin though, Kevin is a better mate for Jimmi than Al any day.

While I could not agree with what Sam wants to do, I think its bveen proven what a messed up all over the place bitch Emma really is.

Oh she so believes in family life that she has affairs, flirts all the time with other men and then leaves her husband for another man? Oh what about Chris if Sam does go to Switzerland? What will Chris think and do once he finds out where Emma has gone? Thats if Howard is stupid enough to let her back into his life. I hope he tells the cold cruel fish where to go, do it Heston going off on one style I say!

She was right though on what kind of man is Sam with regard to him being so wooly on her seeing other men, both of them are goons on that one. No doubt Emma is another one who whether she is prepared to admit it or not likes bad men and likes to be treated badly. Proper fan of treat em mean keep em keen I think she blatantly is. I hope she ends up with the big goon and let him do his worse with her or someone even worse than him and then maybe she will realise what she had and what a goon she is!

Emma would understandably have been angry but she really did kick Sam hard with that exit ... the writers wringing max emotion from it I guess. That said I am getting a bit bored of Saint Sam the Stoic...

Hmm, Your striking me as someone who likes to blame the nicer ones if not the victims in a situation rather than the bad ones. I mean, with Jimmi/Cherry and Daniel, you seemed to have a problem with Jimmi for being a wimp rather than blaming Cherry/Daniel and now you have a problem with Sam?


He is throwing the towel in far too easily but thats because imo the programme is trying to reflect what makes headline news in the last few years in situations like this but I bet there are plenty of people who want to live and do their utmost in making the best of things and try and get on top of things the best they can and I think the programme either should have thought about that and reflected that instead or left this all alone rather than going too much for the "reality" which is more of a cliche thing imo because of the high profile stories.

i enjoyed todays episode for the first time in ages. For once, it didn't have one of the doctors chasing up a patient for something trivial.

I guessed that guy was the vicar at the start and mrs Tembe was so sweet. Nice to have someone appreciate her kindness at last.

The mother and little girl was believable too. I thought the mother was trying to flirt with Daniel in the last scene.

Emma didnt come off well today even by my (low apparently haha) standards !

It was obvious from the go that the homeless man was the new Vicar. Good for Mrs Tembe !

Mrs Tembe was the only one who showed any compassion. I think the undercurrent of rivalry between her and the other lady is quite funny

Hi, long time lurker on this thread, so finally decided to join in.

I actually really enjoyed todays episode. As soon as the man walked into the church, I thought it was obvious that he was the vicar but I still enjoyed the storyline nonetheless. I like the little rivalry between Mrs. Tembe and the other woman and the little sly comments. 'I hope he's hungry, you're flapjacks are filling' Go Mrs. Tembe!!!

Also liked the storyline with the girl and her mother.Actually thought it was quite realistic. When she was leaving the surgery and was telling Daniel that she would do what the girl wanted etc. I was just thinking how silly it would be if the woman just changed all her views and goal for her daughter in a single doctors appointment, so was glad to see that she hadn't really changed at the end. Much more realistic.

WIth that whole big announcement from Sam yesterday, I was expecting more that about 3 minutes of Emma on screen. I really liked Emma when she first came in but now she is getting on my nerves. I hate the way she is all hot and cold with Howard. He really tries, bless him.
I always feel with Emma/Sam like i've missed an episode (which I haven't) because I still don't fully get the relationship.I don't think they fully explained the whole open relationship thing properly. Or maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

Sorry for the bit of a rant!

I was horrified that Emma planned to get Sam sectioned, she really has turned out to be a nasty piece of work.

Love the new vicar, I hope we get to see more of him. Mrs T was a delight.

No they haven't explained the relationship - I find it a bit puzzling as she obviously loves him.

It's not nasty, she just doesn't want him to die. Selfish I suppose, but then he's also being selfish.

He's the one who they were grilling Rob about the other week.
