Great to see it back shame it's only for 3 EPS, due to Surannes Dr foster work? And seems they've written her pregnancy in?

Very interesting case and loving the fact they've got teens and child pornography laws as a sub-plot, it sometimes comes up as an issue on mn.

I watched it.

Nicnak2223 Wed 13-Apr-16 22:15:59

I want to see next week's already

Clawdy Wed 13-Apr-16 22:17:54

Haha just started a thread but will stick with this one now!

Watched it and usually enjoy the series. Found it quite unrealistic tonight when they arrested the 16 yr old daughter for images. A bit OTT with the back up from uniform officers. Would be boring I suppose if it was anything like real life.

But the images might be worse than mum's been told, there's the drugs and age issue too, plus as mum's a cop they maybe feel they need to be seen to be fair?

I enjoyed it. Love both of them!

Love this show always really well done. Shame about only three, seems ages since last one though did try and cover what's been happening.

I love this so much, such a shame there's only three episodes this time.

FawnDrench Thu 14-Apr-16 13:33:36

This is the first time I've watched the programme and I really enjoyed it.
It's shaping up nicely with lots of potential suspects.

Watching mainly cos of SJ and have always liked her acting.

And I just loved the fake phone call and laughed out loud.

I've never seen the programme before and I really enjoyed it.

hairymelonwalton Thu 14-Apr-16 17:36:48

i got abit bored with the first half hour, thinking its just another women cop show.
but then the family backround came into it, bailey being pregnant and her sister living with her and scotts daughter being in trouble. i thought yeah this is more like the first series

hairymelonwalton Thu 14-Apr-16 17:48:16

did you know sally linsey the woman who plays baileys sister was suppose to play the part of scott but due her twins being small and her role in mount pleasant she couldnt commit to it so she took the part of the sister

Clawdy Thu 14-Apr-16 18:53:29

Sally Linda also conceived the original idea of Scott and Bailey, with Suranne Jones.

Clawdy Thu 14-Apr-16 18:54:26

Lindsay not Linda! stupid phone.....

oneowlgirl Thu 14-Apr-16 20:41:30

Oh wow, I didn't know that - I think it works well with the actresses in the parts they play & cant imagine them in any of the other roles! Great show & wish it were longer than 3 episodes!

RebootYourEngine Sat 16-Apr-16 10:45:02

I like this show. I think the two actresses work well together. Sally Lindsay is better suited to the part of the sister.

What i found funny is how they tried to hide Suranne Jones' pregnancy.

oneowlgirl Sat 16-Apr-16 13:32:17

They did a good job Reboot as I never noticed!!

If people are coming new to this and enjoying it, I strongly recommend watching the previous series. It was even better when Amelia Bullmore was in it. I love the fact that it has strong, smart, non-glamorous women with supportive friendships in all the lead parts. I hope the new cop will redress the balance now Amelia Bullmore has left.

HalsallRedux Sat 16-Apr-16 23:41:58

Yes, such a shame Amelia Bullmore's left - she was great, I loved her.

I hadn't realised SJ was pregnant but at one point during their chats in the loo, I found myself thinking 'hmm, she looks unusually thick round the middle, isn't she quite slim normally?' Doh!

70isaLimitNotaTarget Sun 17-Apr-16 18:48:08

I watched it really enjoyed it, but I love anything Lesley Sharp is in, love Suranne Jones in everything (I watched "Touching Cloth" the other day grin ) and I really missed Amelia Bullmore too.

hairymelonwalton Thu 21-Apr-16 14:03:08

i think im watching too many female cop shows at the moment, marcelle and undercover cos i couldnt remember what the crime was that scott and baily are trying to solve

mizu Thu 21-Apr-16 17:43:41

Hairy melon - me too. Took me 10 minutes to get into it last night as I too am watching Marcella and Undercover.

pizzaeatingmonkey Thu 21-Apr-16 19:26:11

I've ordered the first series from LoveFilm on the advice of one of you. Quite looking forward to it!

oneowlgirl Thu 21-Apr-16 22:47:02
