I was particularly annoyed by the gadjie who plays Roy describing how harrowing it all was for them. Not as harrowing as real life. Trust me on that.

Oh, i know Joe ... I am sure that it bought back memories for lots of people watching

 

The one thing that didn't ring true for me was that she seemed too 'well' to want to die right then. She'd been downstairs, lifted a baby, ironed a shirt. I just felt that she would want to go on for a bit longer. 

 

However, every time I expressed this opinion last night my friend who was watching it with me keep referring me back to the Hailey/Harold dilema.

 

I have no experience of that, so I conceded to the scriptwiters and thought they all made a cracking job of it.

I agree with your friend.   If it was the pain, she (the character) would have probably gone on a bit longer, but she knew she needed to increase the pain relief and didn't want to be 'out of it' and possibly back thinking she was Harold when she died.     I thought they did well and as I was reading (think it was in the Mail online) they didn't make it too mawkish an episode, like a Easties two hander - although I'm sure Julie and David could have done it well - but they showed life going on as normal all around the street in between scenes, and cut away after she'd started drinking the cocktail of drugs.  Made it all the more poignant I think.

I've been thinking about the Hayley/Harold thing.

The way I see it, Hayley was always Hayley on the inside, and was only Harold on the outside. She could never 'return' to being Harold because he never really existed. However, I think she was frightened that she would become confused due to meds and relive the painful times when she was forced to live as Harold.

That makes sense in my head but I'm not so sure it makes sense in print.

No, that's what I meant..  when her friend was dying she was talking about happy times with her husband, and Hayley didn't want to go back to a time in her life when she thought she was still 'Harold' on the outside and so unhappy.

 That's how I saw it too.

Yes, I watched it - and drooled.

 

Ooooh, excellent..!  I've not watched it yet either because I think it deserves my full attention

Utterly riveting.

 

Pretty sure Series 1 was 20 episodes.

Series 2 and 3 were 10 episodes each.

(Series 1 was actually 2 seasons, but they were run together on the BBC.)

Maybe the last ones are filler.

 

Five DVD'S and the first two are six eps each.

Agree with this comment but want to point out Spiral came first on UK TV I think. It was the worthy trailblazer for this type of foreign import. But I agree with Carport. The Bridge is the best of the lot.

So bad I had to go and find the thread about it to say so.    Not a great fan of Vic Reeves at the best of times but have to confess he can be funny at times.   This was not one of those times.

Spiral is marvellous, I have the box set, and can't wait for more.

Mr Velvet luvs ya

    I'm watching until BB comes on.. I don't think the Ant n Dec are there.   I'm a Celeb won something, but the Keiran chappie took the award for it.   I'm watching to make sure Corrie win.   Hayley's looking much better tonight.   

 

and for the ladies... the Musketeers were presenting something

I keep catching sight of that annoying pillock Vernon Kaye 

 

Nice to see 'Hayley and Roy' on the stage together

After seeing them in their civvies.... I'm having Aramis - no if, buts or maybes... if anyone else has claimed him, tough.

 

I loved Hayley and Roy's acceptance speech.

Excuse me!  I posted the pics and I told YOU that I had first dibs.

Snooze ya lose.

I would never watch stuff like this before..... like I've never watched Embarrassing bodies... but i got sucking into this a couple of weeks ago. Probably after watching BB and nattering on here with it still on. I feel so sorry for the people (as stupid as some of them are to begin with) and find myself needing to know how they are in the end.

Meant to post a heads-up earlier:

It's a crime thriller frenzy tonight! There's the second series of "Line of Duty" on BBC2, and "Suspects", a semi-improvised crime drama on C5. Both have had promising previews. Even tonight's episode of "Inside No 9" (which I thought was pretty good last week) concerns a robbery.

The TV recorder's going to be working overtime tonight...
