Doctors Addicts Anonymous Continued - the return to 'WTF'?

(990 Posts)
MsNobodyAgain Sat 11-May-13 16:24:54

This is a thread for all fans of the weekday third rate soap Doctors. BBC1, 1.45pm.

I know in the last thread I said it was a second rate soap, but I've downgraded it to third rate given the recent lack of WTF storylines. Come on scriptwriters, stop being so seri-arse!

Regulars: The lovely Mrs T has her bob wig on and is waiting to sign you at the desk.
Newbies: All welcome. Join in the banter, ask any questions, we have verrrrrrrrry many experts on this thread. smile

Oh, and a small favour to ask. Can someone kill Emma off please? Fankyouverymuch grin

Raahh Sat 11-May-13 16:31:10

yay! here's to wtf-ness and a smile on Mrs T's

Horsemad Sat 11-May-13 16:57:19

Checking in, although my attendance has been woeful sad

Thanks for new thread MsNo - glad you're back smile

Yay! I have only been managing about one episode a week lately <slacker> but I do love these threads!

We really do need more WTF-ness I agree. Thank you for the new thread MsN flowers

HarlotOTara Sat 11-May-13 17:00:04

I did like the Zara and Daniel one yesterday tho'.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 11-May-13 17:08:40

Oh I do love a sparkly new thread! Thank you, MsN! Gives me hope that some of my wishes may be answered:

Wish 1 - 6tl disappears and is never heard of again

Wish 2 - Whiny boy follows her and is never heard of again

Wish 3 - Jimmi either sorts himself out or leaves

Wish 4 - Mrs T gets a lovely man who appreciates her

Wish 5 - George & Ronnie come back

Wish 6 - Barry becomes a regular

Wish 7 - The rightful heir to the house knocks on Gobby's door

Not too much to ask, is it?

I still can't believe there has not been one single reference to Mrs T/Rev since it all happened!

Ooooh and thanks for the new thread smile

I agree with wish 2,3,4 and 5 AnneEyhtMeyer, definitely noooo to 6! I think Chris is going to be very annoying on his radio show!

MsNobodyAgain Sat 11-May-13 17:13:32

Ahhhhhh, so lovely to have you all here again <sniffs>

Anne I particularly want wishes 1, 4, 6 and 7.

Horsemad Thanks. My attendance has been a tad slacking but I have an excuse slip! grin

Oodsigma Sat 11-May-13 17:22:19

7 for me please!

Or just less police based ones. How can gobbyplod be the only-police-in-the-village if they keep showing others though he's involved in every case

readyforno2 Sat 11-May-13 18:49:04

Checking in.. Will make more of an effort to watch episodes on time instead of saving them up.

readyforno2 Sat 11-May-13 18:49:47

Also I agree with wish 5. Loved George.

HarlotOTara Sun 12-May-13 15:06:37

Please not Barry but definitely agree about Whiny boy and mum.
I can remember the first episode of Doctors (the shame blush). Can anyone else? My children were babies...

toldmywrath Sun 12-May-13 16:44:28

Thanks for new thread MsNo yes to numbers 1 5 & 7 Anne
Barry is a breath of fresh Brummy air now & again!

toldmywrath Sun 12-May-13 16:49:17

Sorry Harlot I don't remember the first one (was a non watcher then as my job meant no tv in the day!) Luckily I can catch it on the I player these days (&sometimes when it is actually being broadcast)
I remember the old surgery before it blew up & the time Helen & Mark got together. Also that Jude (Scottish)who is now in Emmerdale (& Helen is too & wasn't Nick in Emmerdale as well?) I don't watch Emmerdale btw blush

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 13:45:41


Anyone about?

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 13:45:45

Just watched the local news. If I hear one more thing about Alex Ferguson retiring I swear my head will explode angry

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 13:46:34

Hello Anne smile

Chris on the radio. It's gonna be bad.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 13:49:58

I am fed up of Sir Alex too. Dh is a huge United fan,(the fact I relegated his framed Cantona shirt to the understairs cupboard was nearly grounds for divorcegrin) and has been trying to tell the kids how momentous all this is.
They looked like tis hmm a lot.

Could have done without FOD singing thengrin

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 13:51:31

This bloke is creepy. But I don't trust the boss woman either.confused

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 13:52:25

Living where we do doesn't help Raahh

6tl is being an idiot. She slept with that bloke but assessed his rape victim. Now she's given him the heads up and he's deleted his online boasts. Well done (not)

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 13:55:08

It doesn't MsN--need to move-- grin

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 13:56:12

Hopefully this will get 6tl the sack.

And Jizz is trying to get a poor woman with alcohol problems to embarrass herself on the radio? nice.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 13:56:49

Ferguson thing is bizarre. 71 year old man retires. What a shocker.

Chris has amazed me. He has managed to be even more boring on the radio than he is in the surgery. I really didn't think that could happen.

6tl storyline is ridiculous.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 13:56:58

Is this Kev putting a voice on?

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 13:57:01

Oh dear. Chris is really messing up.

Afternoon all.

Luckily here in the south we are relatively free of Sir Alex related news.

6TL surely must be breaching some sort of code of conduct here?

Chris, cringe, is your heart bothering you? This Ben is a wanker by the sounds of it.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 13:57:53

I hate watching a 71 year old man chewing gum. makes me stabby. grin

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 13:57:59

Alcohol woman is coming to save the day I think...

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 13:59:02

Sounded like it, didn't it Raahh? Probably wasn't meant to be Kevin though, probably just didn't want to pay for another actor!

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 13:59:09

shock Dave is truly repellant.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 13:59:13

There have to be rules against fraternising with suspectshmm

oh,your husband just died. Remember him? Nope- neither do we.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:00:10

Anne- why pay another actor, when you can re-use one? Was probably Roy Huddgrin

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:00:57


You will be busted, FOD

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 14:01:15

Yes, but so is 6tl, MsN!

Funny how 6tl remembers she had a husband now he is dead.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 14:02:24

Was probably Roy Hudd

Oh Raahh that made me spit out my drink! grin

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:02:24

Is alcohol woman drunk?

Hardly suitable lunchtime viewing?!

Now do you believe her 6TL? What a scumbag.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:03:15


poor Emma

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 14:03:20

Shame he is a rapist and not a murderer.

Oh is is all going very badly for, well, everyone really.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 14:04:11

sad it's a bit full on that's for sure. Glad she kneed him in the bollocks.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:04:16

oh dear, Chris.

TBFE is thrilled.
It's your fault Jizz.

Go see Jimmi, Emma!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 14:04:20

If she doesn't report this she's a bigger scumbag than I thought.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 14:04:37

grin Anne

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:05:19

Shame he is a rapist and not a murderer

Anne- now it's my turn to choke on my coffee grin

Well, much as I hate 6TL she didn't deserve that. Just hope she does the right thing.

Chris - just walk away now.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:06:00

That has got to be Kev.

Nooooo- don't have a bath, Emma!

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 14:06:52

He didn't actually rape her though, did he??

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:07:37

No, but his filthy hands were all over her.

Oh, is this Ben?

I wish Jizz would do something different with her hair <changes subject>

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:08:41

Who- yes, a naice flippy do, like mrs T. (ignores un savoury subject matter)

bellabelly Mon 13-May-13 14:09:43

Howard's hair is looking especially bouffant today. He will provide manly shoulder for Emma.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:10:25

Howard's hair is a wonder. I bet he has a Babyliss Big Hair.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 14:10:41

Well the dancing in the staff room was very WTF.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:10:54


I hope Emma shops the scumbagsad

bellabelly Mon 13-May-13 14:11:45

I am really tempted to write him a fanmail letter and ask him about his styling tips. Do you think I'd get a reply? grin

Aarf at Babyliss big hair! He'd look better with it shorter IMO.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 13-May-13 14:12:06

Howards hair and the dancing were in the WTF subject matter to focus on.

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:12:44

bella- oh yes, please do! Let us know what he says.

Does he use Silvikrin?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 14:13:15

He looks so much better when he ruffles it up. Remember to put that in your letter.

bellabelly Mon 13-May-13 14:16:13

grin OK, I'll keep you posted...

Raahh Mon 13-May-13 14:20:53

We can offer to ruffle it for him, if it helpsgrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 14:22:44

Oh yes, I have plenty of spare time for hair ruffling. Just tell him to give me the nod and I'll be right there.

Sparklingbrook Mon 13-May-13 14:25:05

Hello! It was really boring today. I am struggling with my loyalty. sad

What a horrible man, can't believe she had a bath though. Surely with both of them and some kind of forensic evidence in Emma they would have got him. She was pretty stupid though, I saw it coming on Friday wink

I also thought it was Kevin Raahh especially when he said he couldn't believe they chose chris over him.

Didn't think that was a bad episode at all.

toldmywrath Mon 13-May-13 15:20:22

grin @ Anne re the murderer not rapist comment.
Who is Alex Ferguson? smile

starfishmummy Mon 13-May-13 15:42:59

Stuff has been happening here so I haven't kept up with doctors for ages and when I watched it last Friday, I had no idea what was going on! Having caught up in here I can safely say that I still have no idea!!!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 16:42:43

Oh that's what we like to hear, starfish, it is no good if anyone knows what is actually going on. It spoils it.

readyforno2 Mon 13-May-13 19:10:05

grin Anne

Poor Emma. But she does need to report. Bet she feels bad for not believing it now.

starfishmummy Mon 13-May-13 21:46:22

Well gee thanks Anne!! gringringrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 13-May-13 22:05:15

If you start to know what is going on you really should see your own GP, Starfish, as you may need help. Doctors isn't made to be understood.

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 13:47:57

Gobby nearly deafened the postman thengrin

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 13:53:16

I missed a chunk of this- DD is having a meltdown because turned numberjacks offhmm

Who is the annoying blond on the phone?

MsNobodyAgain Tue 14-May-13 13:55:35

Rob has got some post. A 'sucker' list. His details are on it he's a "target for criminals". The blonde woman was the firm that sent it.

He's just gone to neighbours as she got the same letter.

Oodsigma Tue 14-May-13 13:55:54

Who is the cat lady?

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 13:56:53

thanks MsN

Gobby is a rubbish spy!

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 13:57:12

Cat lady is the neighbour.

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 13:58:45

ooh- could this have somethingto do with the house? hopeful

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:00:10

'pretty colourful'

understatement, 6tl

MsNobodyAgain Tue 14-May-13 14:00:13

I was just going to ask where this was going Raahh

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:00:43

Better to look like bitter women than let him gt away with it, though?

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:02:54

It's a date, Zara, get with the programme.

Is this the Icon? Are they cheating on the icon?

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:03:39

Mad cat alert!!

MsNobodyAgain Tue 14-May-13 14:06:06

Went to the loo so I missed why they won't prosecute scumbag confused

So, she'll discredit him within the force but he's free to go out and about and attack other women. Good thinking...NOT!

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:06:50

Gobbyplod-you are shit.grin

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:07:00

Go Driver!

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:07:57


MsNobodyAgain Tue 14-May-13 14:08:28

Gobbyplod is doing more crime busting on his day off than a day at work!

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:09:46

Silly old bag.

that's the trouble with cat women

hides from Sparkling

Oodsigma Tue 14-May-13 14:10:07

Lol at Gobbys burglary!

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 14:12:59

uh-oh- a sex ban!

I was watching but not free to be here!

shock at police rape outcome, seriously? That's a great message to send out!

Glad to see Zaniel getting on but of course she has to get the upper hand and try to control him as usual.

I was laughing too Oodsigma, what a wally!!

Shall I bother with it? Hmm, well, there's not a lot else on tonight so I might as well.

toldmywrath Tue 14-May-13 22:32:04

WhoKnows What do you mean! We've just watched the semi finals of Eurovision song contest.

Raahh Tue 14-May-13 23:05:13

told- Eurovision was very wtf- the Doctors cast should do it next year.
I particularly liked the spacemen. And the one with the giant (but was sadthe giant didn't sing) grin

Exactly Told and Raahh - not a lot worth watching. You would have to pay me very large sums of money to be in the room while Eurovision is on, I cannot think of anything I hate more on TV. DH loves it but he has to watch on his own.

Anyway, I did watch Doctors. Sucker list was BAH, rape storyline was handled fairly well, Zaniel, well, I prefer them at each others throats TBH but was quite nice.

MsNobodyAgain Wed 15-May-13 05:56:33

Just had a quick look at the finalists for the British Soap Awards. The only category Doctors seems to be in is 'Best Soap'.

As we crudely say up North, if we win that I'll bare my arse on the Town Hall steps grin

If only there was a category for "most far fetched storylines" or "best use of the same actor in multiple roles" or "most bouffant male hairstyle".

MsNobodyAgain Wed 15-May-13 06:58:00

Heston would win in the Jazzy Waistcoat category.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 10:15:29

Haven't watched yesterday's yet as have come down with the lurgy and went to bed at 6.30 last night.

However I was very sad and recorded their appearance on This Morning yesterday and am currently watching that. 6tl is being annoying on this too.

Hope you are feeling a bit better now Anne. You have just inspired to me to watch this Morning on Iplayer <shoots self>.

They all have better hair than on the show.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 12:38:28

I'm so very sorry Who. I hope you can forgive me. blush

They did have better hair, didn't they? But 6tl was still annoying and pushing herself forward. Yuck. Zara seems much softer in real life (wouldn't be hard).

Thanks, am feeling a bit better but still grim. I took DD to pre-school this morning and then lay on the sofa watching crap tv, and this afternoon I have to take her to her swimming lesson, so I'll just sit in the corner with a box of tissues feeling sorry for myself. Another early night for me I think.

Oodsigma Wed 15-May-13 12:41:56

What were they doing on this morning?

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 12:46:45

They were promoting the Soap Awards.

Think their only hope of an award is the storyline one, as Pip Scho seemed to suggest they had three entries in that category. I expect they will be up against things like the Tyrone domestic violence one though, so won't win anything.

Feel better soon AnneEyhtMeyer! I thought they were good on this morning. Jizz's hair was a bit better but still bad, don't like 6tl with a bob.

Ah Jimmi's neighbours today, nice to see where they all live wink

And how long as Zara's ankle been broken?

bellabelly Wed 15-May-13 14:01:18

This is a splendidly bonkers episode!

Sparklingbrook Wed 15-May-13 14:05:43

Afternoon all. confused

Sparklingbrook Wed 15-May-13 14:09:34

Has the Ikon burnt down? They are somewhere else. Again. shock

Oodsigma Wed 15-May-13 15:10:55


AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 15:56:50

Not watched yet, but when I broke my ankle (both times) I was in a split cast for ages - both times hospital for a week (had pins put in), then crutches for at least 6 weeks, then physio for a while too.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 16:26:23

Watching now. I could never live with my mum. Murder would be on the cards.

She's in flats with nothing on, walking totally normally!

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 16:27:14

Oh hurrah! This is superbly WTF!!

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 16:28:12

Is she? I'll keep an eye out! grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 15-May-13 16:31:44

That was quick. I wasn't walking normally for ages - mainly out of fear of hurting myself again.

toldmywrath Wed 15-May-13 18:19:51

I'll be steering clear of the town hall if they win best soap ( MsNo)

MsNobodyAgain Wed 15-May-13 18:41:54

grin told

Been out most of the day so I watched it when I got back to Mums. Very enjoyable WTF episode.

Hope you feel better soon Anne

MsNobodyAgain Thu 16-May-13 13:53:50

The patient is charming hmm

MsNobodyAgain Thu 16-May-13 13:55:53

I'd die in those shoes.

MsNobodyAgain Thu 16-May-13 14:10:52

6tl playing the sympathy card after what TBFE said. Very manipulative.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 14:12:15

Just watching now.

That bandstand is where George and Ronnie had a picnic. Ahh, happy memories of when they had good characters!

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 14:14:03

Hello MsN.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 14:14:35

Although I expect you have probably gone by now.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 14:15:22

I keep having to rewind because I can't hear because of my loud sneezing!

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 14:15:54

Oh! Those are beautiful shoes! But strictly for sitting down, not walking.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 14:21:46

Is there any point to today's episode?

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 14:37:53

Well that was all a bit pointless, wasn't it?

6tl using emotional blackmail just makes me hate her even more. No, I didn't think that was possible either!

MsNobodyAgain Thu 16-May-13 14:48:11

Yep. I shut down the computer in disgust. Boring episode. I am in the car outside DDs school now but still.checking the thread.


<slaps self>

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 15:03:22

Because you love us so much, MsN!

MsNobodyAgain Thu 16-May-13 15:08:10


Will watch today's just before tomorrow's on iplayer I think as we were out visiting my brother today and then hectic evening with ds1's bloomin gymnastics.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 16-May-13 20:58:31

You'll be able to watch it with one finger on the fast-forward button Cinnamon. 95% of it was pointless. And that is me being generous.

Raahh Thu 16-May-13 22:08:18

I am about to watch yesterday's and today's now.
And at first glance- the mother in yesterday's looked like Zara!shock (maybe I need to go to bedgrin)

Raahh Thu 16-May-13 22:08:58

(the gran, that is)

Raahh Thu 16-May-13 22:14:56

Why is the gran putting on a posh accent to Jimmi?

Raahh Thu 16-May-13 22:35:50

Onto today's- the assessment thing would do my head in.

Good thing they don't have patients to get in the way.grin

toldmywrath Thu 16-May-13 22:43:19

I won't be watching for a while-but will catch up once I'm back (sob emoticon)Going on me hols.
Enjoy the wtf'ness that is Doctors.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 17-May-13 06:37:16

Have a lovely holiday, Told! Going anywhere nice? (Like Letherbridge?)

MsNobodyAgain Fri 17-May-13 13:49:40

Liking Mrs Ts wig today. She practically ran out of the room at the mention of church though sad

Chris looks a tit in that helmet.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 17-May-13 13:50:45

Al's got a suit on shock

HoggyTruffle Fri 17-May-13 13:52:45

I've not been here for a week and you are already half way through a new thread!

MsNobodyAgain Fri 17-May-13 13:55:00

Hi Hoggy. I know, we talk some rubbish. Bit like Chris...

MrsReiver Fri 17-May-13 13:55:09

What happened to TRev?? What have I missed???

Finally they are mentioning her and the rev again though, first reference for 2 weeks ish?!?

The mum used to be in Hollyoaks smile

Nice to see Chris is proving that fod is right on his form grin

HoggyTruffle Fri 17-May-13 13:57:55

MsN, no rubbish spoken here, only the truth. Chris needs a haircut to smarten up a bit.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 17-May-13 13:58:10

MrsR Mrs Ts said her husband was dead, but he turned up at the Mill very much alive and wanting a divorce as he wanted to marry his male partner.

The Rev said he couldn't be with Mrs T anymore.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 17-May-13 13:59:54

To add, Rev broke it off because of her deceit. Not the fact her husband was gay.

bellabelly Fri 17-May-13 14:03:38

There's some very good acting going on today. Particularly the grieving mother and her ex-friend.

MrsReiver Fri 17-May-13 14:03:45

Many thanks Nobody.

That was some atrocious acting just then, even by Doctors' standards.

bellabelly Fri 17-May-13 14:08:54

Hahaha, MrsReiver - I do hope that "Atrocious Acting" will be a category at the Soap Awards.

MrsReiver Fri 17-May-13 14:11:25

Gosh, why on earth did Hollyoaks let her go? hmm

Bella - as every nominee will be from the cast of Doctors, it's their best chance of a gong!

MsNobodyAgain Fri 17-May-13 14:14:09

Mondays preview looked good.

<ever hopeful> grin

bellabelly Fri 17-May-13 14:15:08

In a moment of weakness, I've just been checking out the Soap Awards website - am delighted to see that Howard and his hair have been nominated for Best Comedy Performance!

HoggyTruffle Fri 17-May-13 14:16:12

Dream on MsN

bellabelly Fri 17-May-13 14:19:51

By the way, voting closes at 3pm so if anyone wants to cast their vote, best get a move on!

HoggyTruffle Fri 17-May-13 14:21:44

bellabelly can we vote for Howard's hair as best actor?

bellabelly Fri 17-May-13 14:23:35

Voting is such a faff, I wouldn't bother actually - they force you to vote for other things like "sexiest female", all v tedious.

bellabelly Fri 17-May-13 14:24:06

Haha Hoggy! If you could, I would have fo sho.

You mean you don't care about sexiest female!?! shock

bellabelly Fri 17-May-13 14:47:10

grin cinnamon! They were all vair vair sexy, it was hard to choose... Oh god, I have wasted the whole afternoon watching/ discussing Doctors, how can it be school run time already?

MsNobodyAgain Fri 17-May-13 14:49:06

Hoggy arf.

Mind you it is an impressive head of hair on a man his age. Or maybe it is just the fact I am surrounded by skin heads where I live?

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 17-May-13 21:12:48

Watching now.

Never thought Al would own a suit.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 17-May-13 21:19:44

God Chris is boring.

Poor Mrs T.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 17-May-13 21:41:16

Well I just blocked out all the Chris bits, couldn't follow the story because every time I see him it is as though my brain just clicks off to avoid his droning voice.

But I am massively excited by tomorrow's trailer! The blonde-ponytailed-always-in-the-background nurse is right in the front of a shot! Do you think she'll be allowed to speak? Oh the excitement!

Who is doing her 360 feedback? They will have to point out that she is a bit too quiet, and never joins in with team-building soirees at the Icon. On the plus side she has never disgraced her colleagues with any Merlot O'Clock shenanigans.

Al was a total arse today, seriously 'plebs' the man has absolutely zero social skills. Guess he's suited to being a gp then wink

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 17-May-13 21:46:08

Al is very immature. He just says what he thinks with no experience or tact filter.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 18-May-13 00:11:32

Obviously when I said tomorrow earlier I meant Monday.

Just read the spoilers. Not much on the horizon, but I have to admit I did a little cheer when I read the name "Barry"! Yes! I love a Barry episode!

I've missed a few days again, need to try and catch up over the weekend not realistically going to happen

MsNobodyAgain Sat 18-May-13 06:49:28

30th May

"There are patients everywhere" shock

Now, you didn't think I'd really post anything juicy, did you? wink

Oodsigma Sat 18-May-13 07:27:01

shock patients????

Raahh Sat 18-May-13 10:05:14


must be a miss-print?
parrots? policemen? poltergeists? any of these would be more plausible than patientsgrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 18-May-13 11:17:29

Are you sure that wasn't the spoiler for another programme, MsNo? shock

Oodsigma Sat 18-May-13 15:01:21

I'm going with parrots. Mrs T & TBFE trying to clear the campus surgery of a flock of parrots while Jimmi remembers he has OCD and tries to scrub the place clean.

euRaahhvision Sat 18-May-13 15:16:04

Ood- that is a wtf scenario that could actually happen.grin

after all, this is the programme that has given us handbags, handbags with frogspawn, and bleached fishgrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 18-May-13 16:18:15

Ood are you a Doctors scriptwriter? That sounds entirely plausible.

Raahh - I love love love your Eurovision nickname! I love Eurovision. Very excited about tonight!

euRaahhvision Sat 18-May-13 16:21:58

Anne- I love eurovision. Although I am not drinking, so i might not enjoy it as much as usualgrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 18-May-13 16:24:51

My turn to get up tomorrow, so expecting a 5.30am start (the joys of a 4 yo) so I had better not drink either. Still, I think watching Eurovision is like taking drugs anyway.

euRaahhvision Sat 18-May-13 16:29:23

It's brilliant fun- some of the acts look seriously potty, which is always good.

I sympathise with the getting up- dd2 thinks 5am is morning, and since I can't sleep properly due to dh's snoring, I'm usually knackeredgrin

Oodsigma Sun 19-May-13 08:48:45

How about Jizz-Al and Kevin's red trousers form a band and enter Eurovision. Could go for a guest appearance of Scott Mills ( Graham would be too expensive)

Planning to try and catch up a couple of episodes today. DCs are still asleep as they stayed up watching Eurovision with DH (DS watched the whole thing, DD watched the first 15 mins and left the room with me but wanted to see the results). I tried to watch it, DH loves it and I always feel a bit mean because I can't get into it at all, but I just can't do it, it makes me all stabby.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 19-May-13 10:11:11

Oh it was a good one last night! I stayed up til the end and DD was her usual punctual 5.30am self, so I am knackered now.

Thought it was very odd that they announced the winner before the voting was complete. Thought the Danish song was very ordinary, but I suppose bland is what has mass appeal.

I did like the bloke in the box - very WTF. Greece were very funny - although I suspect if they had won we would have had to hold the contest for them as they could never have afforded it!

Is anyone here a fan of Everybody Loves Raymond? I thought the Icelandic singer looked a dead ringer for Amy's brother!

I think Sweden did very well at hosting - the presenter was funny and I loved the piss-taking with the Swedish Smorgasbord song! Dancing meatballs! It made me really like Sweden, they seem very like us.

euRaahhvision Sun 19-May-13 13:43:23

I enjoyed Eurovision very much- but yes, the strange premature announcement was very WTF? . Thought the host was great- quite sarcastic and funny, especially when trying to get the scores out of the waffling jury heads. And I find the voting for their BFF's funny- thoughsome people get really riled about it all.

I learnt Swedish during my first year at university- one of my tutors was very like the host- very dry sense of humour, and spent all the lectures chewing tobacco. She was quite nuts.

Poor Bonnie. She wasn't great, but I was quite surprised at how badly Ireland did-it was on last, and was a cheesy pop song. What's not to like?

It was the soap awards last night- not sure when they are televised- I bet Doctors didn't win anything. It's as big a fix as Eurovisiongrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 19-May-13 14:58:14

Am very impressed you can speak Swedish, Raahh!

Yes, I was amazed Ireland did so badly. They are normally popular.

As for the soap awards, well I haven't seen any results, but I imagine you are right. If Doctors won anything I would be astonished.

Corrie cleaned up at the Soap Awards, smile, EE only got a lifetime achievement for Ian Beale, Doctors came nowhere sad.

Raahh- I have an English friend who speaks Swedish, we went to Sweden together once and the Swedes simply couldn't believe it, very rare for English people to speak Swedish.

MsNobodyAgain Sun 19-May-13 16:04:37

No need to show my arse on the Town Hall steps then. Phew!


euRaahhvision Sun 19-May-13 16:11:53

I wouldn't say I'm very good at Swedish- and it was a long time agogrinIt was a strange course- at least 2 people on it were SwedishhmmBut my main degree was in English lit- for some reason we had to do 2 unrelated subjects in our first year. I ended up with a choice of Swedish or Welsh!(in retrospect, Welsh would have been more useful, being a Welsh university and all!)

Grrr@ the soap awards- I don't watch Corrie. Haven't done for years.
Doctors was robbed. Why bother with the awards when only the main 2 soaps ever win anything? angry

EE did only win one this year, apart from Corrie it was all Hollyoaks and Emmerdale. I'm just glad to see EE getting toppled because it's awful. Haven't watched Hollyoaks ever or Emmerdale for years, but I do love Corrie.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 19-May-13 17:04:36

Your town breathes a sigh of relief, MsN. grin

MsNobodyAgain Sun 19-May-13 18:27:29

I bet it has Anne grin

EE must be bad because my mum has given up watching it and she is a soap addict - apart from "those with all the young 'uns in them". This is usually said while she hoiks her bosom Les Dawson style.

I'm not a Eurovision fan, my mum always watches.

Shame about soap awards but not surprising!

bellabelly Sun 19-May-13 20:04:48

Ooh, the soap awards is just starting on itv but thanks to this thread I no longer feel the need to watch it! Was just tuning in to see if Doctors had won anything - well, miracles can happen... grin

Sorry if I spoiled it (Soap Awards) for anyone, didn't know it was on tonight.

bellabelly Sun 19-May-13 20:33:37

WhoKnows - not spoiled it at all, now I feel free to channel-surf though sadly haven't found anything more interesting yet!

I highly recommend Once upon a time at 8 on a Sunday on channel 5. I record it and watch it during the day as dh doesn't like it at all.

Case Histories on BBC1. Loved the last series, recording this one as I missed the beginning putting the DCs to bed. Just catching a bit of the soap awards now.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 13:45:10

I am so tired I can't decide whether to watch Doctors or get my head down for half and hour.

Mind you, it could be that boring that I'll nod off anyway.

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:46:18

I am very tired today,and can't even remember if I watched Friday's or not.confused
DD2 is asleep, so might just get to watch without interruptionsgrin

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:46:40

great x-post grin

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 13:48:06

"I am not your darling"

<mutter, mutter>

Mrs T, you make me laugh grin

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 13:49:34

Nicccccccccccccccccccce! Pus at lunchtime.

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:50:55

strange man

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 13:53:05

Yep Raahh. Fancy trying to arrange a date when you're infected with god knows what.

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:53:08

I don't even understand what he has invented.

Poor Mrs T. sad

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:53:51

Another infected tattoo?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 20-May-13 13:54:38

Hello all.

Missed the first couple of minutes but get the gist.

I'm tired too - must be something in the air. Just had a little nap before Doctors, but could do with another.

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:54:39

is it chlamydia? been awhile since we've had a chlamydia storyline.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 13:55:58

Subtle as a brick, churchy woman hmm

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 13:56:31

Can't even spell gonarrhea.

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:56:43

They're a nosy bunch at that churchgrin
Rather it was chlamydia- I can sort of spell that!

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 20-May-13 13:57:21

When did the church woman become so liberal minded?

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:57:21

oh MsN- we are very in sync todaygrin

'Trevor the tenor'

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 13:58:23


Oodsigma Mon 20-May-13 13:58:39

Trevor the tenor grin

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 13:58:40

But the Rev has dumped Mrs T.

And I don't believe that bunch of vipers would be so liberal, either!

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 14:00:30

How's that for coincidence...a nice bit of WTF?

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:00:35

So Rob answers phones now?

Stuart is a real catch, isn't he?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 20-May-13 14:03:36

Ooh! Maybe gonorrhea man will hunt 6tl down and kill her?

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 14:04:15

<crosses fingers>

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 20-May-13 14:05:14

She's got a personalised car now!

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:05:23

Anne- good plan Or get her an infected tattoo.

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:05:46

grin@ 'personalised car'

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:06:59

So, the brother did it?

Afternoon all,

6TL just can't stop meddling in police affairs can she?

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:08:31

good thing there are no patients, what with all the admin and inventing going ongrin

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:08:58

And now 6tl is a detectivehmm

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 20-May-13 14:09:38

St Phil's is eerily quiet too, isn't it? They're a healthy lot round Letherbridge.

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 20-May-13 14:10:56

Love love love Mrs T!

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:11:31

TRev is no moresad

Oodsigma Mon 20-May-13 14:12:00

Pmsl at personalised car grin

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 14:12:24

Al is getting on my nerves again.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 14:13:23

Note to self: don't watch tomorrows episode at Mums house blush

bellabelly Mon 20-May-13 14:13:39

Al is being even weirder than usual. How is Howard's 360 feedback thing going to work now he's set fire to the forms? And how very dare he defy Mrs T?

AnneEyhtMeyer Mon 20-May-13 14:14:11

I was just thinking the same, MsN

On a plus point, at least now we know the blonde nurse in the background is called Tash. Much easier to write when we are doing our lists of who we like.

MsNobodyAgain Mon 20-May-13 14:16:10

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! I have to move. Gah!

Got a bed to strip, put shopping away and choose 2 pairs of new specs (because I'm officially an old fart who can't get away with just one pair anymore) sad

Raahh Mon 20-May-13 14:22:33

Tash? Nice that she has a namegrin

I need to wake dd2 up. I refuse to take her on the school run, dressed as a flamenco dancer (again) grin

I think Al has invented some kind of blood pressure gauge for people to use at home from what I've seen in previous episodes quite a while ago! I wanted to punch him today what a spoilt brat!!!!

Had to grin at personalised card too!

I thought Al was setting fire to his research papers not the feedback forms blush

The patient story was horrible sad

And I have to say I thought there was an alterior motive for the church woman coming to see mrs T. Perhaps she is just that good at baking and organising or perhaps she's been upto something and wants to take everyone's mind off it by bringing mrs T back hmm

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 13:49:47

Did she say "nightly"?! shock

Daniel should be a husk when normal relations are resumed.

bellabelly Tue 21-May-13 13:58:17

Mrs Nobody, yes I raised an eyebrow at that!

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:00:59

Hi bella

Another storyline with 2 brothers and one has hit a woman hmm

Shakey1500 Tue 21-May-13 14:01:12


I used to frequent this (these) threads ages ago and then full time bloody work came up and got in the bloody way.

Sooooo <pulls up chair> what's been happening? I last saw it 6 months ago grin Joking, I don't expect a run down.

Speaking of which, I'm off work with a horrendous virus, hence the pleasure of watching.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:02:25

"uber-posh" feedback re Heston. What a shocker.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:03:51

Hi Shakey

<shakes fist at real life getting in the way of your Doctors viewing>

Hope you feel better soon.

Oodsigma Tue 21-May-13 14:04:21

Maybe we should offer our feedback ...

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:06:20

I don't think Gobby could take any more criticism by the looks of it.

bellabelly Tue 21-May-13 14:08:33

Yikes, he's going to jump isn't he?

bellabelly Tue 21-May-13 14:09:55

Howard's looking lovely today. I really must write that letter to him about his haircare regime. Do you think any of the actors ever stumble across this thread?

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:10:06

Oh I hope not. The beginning knocked me slightly sick.

bellabelly Tue 21-May-13 14:10:39

Yes me too, MsNobody, queasy now!!!!

Oodsigma Tue 21-May-13 14:12:03

Who keeps DVDs above the washing machine?

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:12:04

grin at Zara on the washing machine.

Shakey1500 Tue 21-May-13 14:12:17

Oh. My. God.

bellabelly Tue 21-May-13 14:12:28

Oh lordy!!!!!! That just made me snort! Tragedy followed by sitting on spin dryer!

bellabelly Tue 21-May-13 14:13:07

If that doesn't win her an award of some kind, I don't know what will! grin

bloody Nora. Getting a bit racy innit?

PS - wish my tumble dryer did that. I can;t even get it to adequately dry my towels.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:13:48

Very observant Ood. I only have mountains of a few cleaning products above mine.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 14:15:04

<arf> Cakes. Rush out an spend loadsamoney on the most powerful one you can get wink

Oodsigma Tue 21-May-13 17:34:43

Ours has a dehumidifier to counter the water blush

Seriously, I'm sure if she was feeling that deprived after a few days without she'd have other means of satisfying her urge! I didn't notice DVD's, am tempted to watch again to have a look blush

Did the bloke fall or jump in the beginning? Trying to do paperwork at the same time as watching confused

Loved the scene with them all sitting in the staff room and tbfe giving them all a piece of his mind!

Raahh Tue 21-May-13 18:27:54

Just attempting to catch up with this now.

Am confused after 5 minutes.confused

Raahh Tue 21-May-13 18:30:52

Gobby is sounding particularly husky today-maybe she should have replaced Bonnie at Eurovision.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 21-May-13 19:24:26

I haven't watched yet, but I noticed on the Doctors facebook page they "liked" the Mumsnet page, so maybe they dip into the thread? shock

If TBFE is reading, you are gorgeous but please ruffle your hair.

Raahh Tue 21-May-13 19:38:30


I am only just managing to see the end- pesky kids[grins]
I'mconfused- was Lee a ghost?

And Zara and Daniel were separated for months- why are they so frustrated after a couple of weeks?hmm

Raahh Tue 21-May-13 19:40:01

Just realised he couldn't be a ghost- he was still in a coma. WTF indeedgrin

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 19:46:33

It never occurred to me that Lee might be a ghost.

cinnamon the bloke at the beginning slipped.

It was all a bit WTF though. Plus if my brother had fallen off a building and survived, I would not pick the same building to throw myself off. It made me shout at the tv " find a taller building".

I'm all heart me.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 19:48:29

Now I am even more confused. I thought the bloke in the coma at the end was the brother that robbed Jizz.



I think the brother that slipped and was in a coma was only recovered as a hallucination from the other brother. No?

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 19:50:33

And why do I care, it's Doctors FGS!

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 19:51:32

I need to lie down. My head just exploded.

Raahh Tue 21-May-13 19:54:19

Makes I think you might be right- but my head has just exploded toogrin

Raahh Tue 21-May-13 19:55:07

and grin @ 'find a taller building'

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 21-May-13 20:24:03

I'm in the middle of watching it, didn't understand what was going on, came here for enlightenment and you are all bloody useless as usual. Should have known!

Love Mrs T "You choose to ignore your many shortcomings"! I want to use that in real life!

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 21-May-13 20:30:50

Patient in hospital bed had the name Lee on his whiteboard.

See Zara is back in her highest heels.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 20:33:43

Anne if you can figure out what has gone on, you are a better woman than me (and Raahh)


AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 21-May-13 20:33:58

So what happened to the purse stealer? Did he die?

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 21-May-13 20:34:33

Clearly not, from our crossed-posts! grin

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 20:34:45

Oh, x-post. V helpful info!

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 21-May-13 20:36:35

Was Jizz visiting Lee because purse-stealer had died? His fall seemed more likely to kill than the roll-over-the-railing of the brother.

MsNobodyAgain Tue 21-May-13 20:37:16

Right, I am calling it as follows then - Lee was in a coma all the time as cakes said. And his brother succeeded in topping himself.

Roll on tomorrow.

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 21-May-13 20:39:58

Sounds reasonable enough to me MsN.

Right, Neighbours next. I love quality telly! grin

Horsemad Tue 21-May-13 21:10:46

Elaine is on Frankie on BBC1 now! Her character has MND sad

That's what I thought too MsNobodyAgain!

Frankie is cheerful sad

Oodsigma Wed 22-May-13 07:19:03

Saw the trailer for that. Married to Rayfrommars&ashes?

Raahh Wed 22-May-13 07:33:50

I'm glad to see we failed in our own assessments, by totally failing to understand yesterday's episode grin

I keep seeing trailers for Frankie. Can't stand the woman in it-she was in Torchwood? - she irritates me for some reason. Shame I missed Elaine. It hasn't been the same at The Mill without the beanbags.

Very tired this morning- didn't get to sleep til 3am sad<yawn>

Oodsigma Wed 22-May-13 09:00:23

Eve Myles- was Gwyneth in Dr Who & Gwen in Torchwood. In Frankie she lives with Kev from Shameless!

I've just got back into Shameless so I can watch the last few episodes. I like a bit of dying programmes blush didn't watch Brookside for years but watched the last one. That was a bit Doctory.

I've had some very good telly related news. will get to snazz up my cv and meeta well known actor from a programme I lovegrin

can't say any more publicly ;wink

Oodsigma Wed 22-May-13 09:17:19

You just want begging for PMs cakes? oh go on then!

It wasn't just me that didn't understand that episode then? Truly WTF.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 22-May-13 10:03:30

Makes we need to know more! PM please please please?

Oodsigma Wed 22-May-13 13:59:37

Another Aunt story?

bellabelly Wed 22-May-13 14:03:49

It's a bit all over the place today, isn't it. [Hoiks bosom]

Oodsigma Wed 22-May-13 14:11:07

6tl got lucky but we didn't

I thought it was a really sad episode. Poor Howard, 6tl is certainly selfish!! I liked the son/carer/mother story smile

Raahh Wed 22-May-13 15:04:40

haven't seen today's yet- but if there are pm's going spare ...grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 22-May-13 16:47:01

Not seen today's yet, and no PMs from Makes yet. sad

MsNobodyAgain Wed 22-May-13 18:30:39

I don't know if I should watch todays then if it is sad and then features 6tl as well. Depends on what's on tv later (and whether I fall asleep at a stupid early hour)

right. pmed everyone who asked.
sorry for late reply. Mini Cakes hurled himself off from some playground equipment 6 feet up so I've spent all day over compensating by smothering him with attention.

what happened with 6tl? I was only half concentrating and I thought Howard turned her down...

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 22-May-13 20:11:48

Thanks Cakes! grin

Haven't seen today's yet. Watched an episode of Dallas instead (I'm still 3 episodes from the end of the series).

Hope MiniCakes is ok? That must have been so scary!

He turned her down for the job and then Heston told him that part of being a good manager was doing what was best for the practise despite his feelings so he offered her the job. She gave him a huge hug and e said lets keep it professional and left sad

Hope mini cakes is feeling better soon!

he was fine as soon as he stopped crying. Thank god for magic boobs!

I was shaking for hours however. ..

Oodsigma Thu 23-May-13 11:17:57

Aw poor minicakes

I see no one had anything to say on yesterday's wink. That police woman was such a terrible character and the rest well, what a bizarre episode!!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 09:01:08

Watched Wednesday's yesterday but not seen Thursday's yet.

Wednesday's was meh. I can't summon up any enthusiasm to watch Thursday's. It must have been crap if no one on this thread could be bothered to comment.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 24-May-13 09:40:11

I haven't watched Wednesdays or Thursdays yet shock.

Maybe I will catch up this morning, or should I paint the kitchen skirting boards? Neither option seems an attractive prospect.

Raahh Fri 24-May-13 10:10:20

Managed to catch up with Weds/Thurs last night.
Felt sorry for Al. But he is getting a bit creepy.
The locksmith/crap poilcewoman storyline was very wtf? Why does Gobbyplod always end up with rubbish partners? They either end up being criminals or nutshmmAnd the journalist was also a terrible actor.

I alsoconfused myself, as I misheard- and thought the brother (Jud?) was her dad. I thought he seemed abit younggrin

MsNobodyAgain Fri 24-May-13 11:31:22

Caught up. Wednesdays was watchable. Thursdays...yawnarama.

Al seems to be heading for a breakdown and has he put weight on? He looked huge!

Preview for todays looked suitably WTF though. Christmas decorations in May confused

Oodsigma Fri 24-May-13 13:48:20

Grantly as an estate agent..

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 13:48:58

Decided to watch live today despite missing yesterday's.

DD is in a strop because I've turned the TV over. I have sent her to her bedroom until she calms down (so I can hear the TV).

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 13:49:51

"Better slippy than sloppy". Very true.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 13:52:58

See Tash is wandering around in the background again today.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 13:55:04

He just doesn't want his neighbour to move, does he? Sure they've done this story before.

Missed the first 5 mins - WTF with Santa?

Irritating hospital woman

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 13:58:02

I think he is doing it because he doesn't want the neighbour to sell his house. Neighbour thinks he is doing it to piss him off / wants cash.

bellabelly Fri 24-May-13 14:01:10

This is going to end badly!

bellabelly Fri 24-May-13 14:05:02

Oooh, AnneEyht, you were spot on!

Seriously, did he really just put the ladder in exactly the same place?!?!

Zaniel have to give in soon, don't they?

bellabelly Fri 24-May-13 14:08:05

grin cinnamon, he's perhaps not the brightest button in the box!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 14:08:28

Knew it! They have done that storyline before (probably with the same actors playing different parts!).

bellabelly Fri 24-May-13 14:08:50

If elephants mating doesn't force them to give in, what will???? [Mind boggles]

bellabelly Fri 24-May-13 14:09:22

Sexy chess!!!! Arf arf arf!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 14:09:45

I can't believe this is daytime tv.


Cringe some more!

bellabelly Fri 24-May-13 14:13:33

God I hope that woman's not going to be in it permanently now, far too annoying wth er crazy laugh!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 24-May-13 14:15:01

Nah, I reckon Kev and Jizz are the next couple. Will drive Al mad and lead to lots of love triangle storylines.

She said on This Morning that she was about to be involved in a stalker storyline, maybe Al's going to get a bit crazy!

Yesterday he's in mourning, today he's worrying about how big his portion of pie is with no mention of death/funeral/sadness confused

How cringeworthy was thatblush
Missed a few episodes a while back, can anyone explain this reluctance zara & daniel not to woo hoo? Confused

They had a full episode of therapy and the suggestion of the therapist was for them to date for 3 weeks with no physical contact.

They went to counselling to mend brdges and the counsellor told them not to have sex for 3 weeks.

HoggyTruffle Fri 24-May-13 21:23:54

I only saw Thursday this week and couldn't summon up the energy to comment. Shame I missed the elephants today confused.

I see Elaine has popped up on the new BBC district nurse program. Not a bean bag in sight.

AnneEyhtMeyer Sat 25-May-13 01:16:21

Spoilers are out!

Could we possibly be about to see the first stirrings of Hestembe?? shock

MsNobodyAgain Sat 25-May-13 04:20:14

<runs off to Digital Spy>

Raahh Sat 25-May-13 09:17:19

See, our faith in the possibility of Hestembe will be rewarded(maybe)smile- and May 7th, pmslgrin

Raahh Sat 25-May-13 22:06:57

Catching up with Friday's- am very irritated by Hannah's laugh.

And yes, the whole Santa war thing has definitely been done before.

Raahh Sat 25-May-13 22:12:57

'love is blind; lust is deaf' grin

She was very annoying and anyone who fancies Kevin has got to be a bit odd.

Raahh Sun 26-May-13 13:41:04

Anyone who fancies Kevin, usually ends up dead. grin

the receptionist Harrison murdered, Freya (who?) ,the woman he was shagging when Freya(who?) died...

I'd get away now, if I was annoying laugh woman...

I have to say I was quite glad when Harrison murdered thy receptionist. Did the other woman die in the fire with Freya then?

MsNobodyAgain Sun 26-May-13 14:12:11

I thought the shagger woman did a runner after she knocked the lamp over that caused the fire?

Could be wrong.

If she didn't suffer a fiery death, maybe she was under Kev when Freya (who?) threw her ample frame over Kevin. That would be a squishy death. Poor woman sad

Raahh Sun 26-May-13 14:13:11

Actually, cinnamon- I'm not sureconfused. I think she did. She will no doubt turn up again soon, playing a different character.grin

Receptionist was horrible. She was mean to Immiegrin

Raahh Sun 26-May-13 14:13:46

<arf> @ 'squishy death'

Raahh Sun 26-May-13 14:14:42

Lumberjack shirts are probably very effective fire blankets.

MsNobodyAgain Sun 26-May-13 14:15:02

And....AND....what has happened to Kevins 'Freya' tattoo? Eh, eh?

It's a mystery, like Gobbys house.

I am obviously bored today

MsNobodyAgain Sun 26-May-13 14:18:56

grin 'effective fire blanket'

Not that I have ever worn one hmm but I believe they are very warm.

Lumberjack shirts I mean. Obviously I have never worn a fire blanket.

Raahh Sun 26-May-13 14:35:07

Ahh, yes, the mysterious Freya tattoo.

It was HUGE --like the woman herself--and it's not a name that can be easily changed to something else. grin

Raahh Mon 27-May-13 11:05:52

I'm going to be a crap SDTP over the next month or so- itv are showing allof the French open, then it will be Queens' then Wimbledon....

When the tennis is on, my loyalties are severely testedgrin

In past years doctors isn't on when Wimbledon is so you'll be safe then. I find it really irritating, in general on TV not just doctors, that regular watchers are cast aside for a quick high rating event. Surely they could activate bbc 3 and 4 durin daytime hours while its on as everyone is digital now so normal programmes can be viewed? Can you tell I'm not a tennis fan or blimmin ascot either!

Raahh Mon 27-May-13 13:08:16

I've only just realised Doctors is not on today! (Bank holidays confuse me- and dh is working)grin

I am a massive tennis fan (have to be content with results from the bbc pages most of the year, not having anything other than bog standard Virgin freeview ), but I agree that nowadays, with all the extra channels, Wimbledon shouldn't dominate the main ones.
I will cry if they ever sell out to Skygrin

MsNobodyAgain Mon 27-May-13 13:30:46

I'm with you cinnamon. I shall be grumbling a lot if Doctors gets messed about with.

I'm already at a loss today but I've just been out and treated myself to a large sugared donut so I'm feeling a lot better grin

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 13:48:23

Has Kev sussed she's irritating yet?

Bit intense, this one.

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 13:57:02

Nice man. hmm Though I suspect there's more to it- and Mrs T will now have a great opportunityto stick her nose ingrin

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 14:08:09

Well, the mother wasn't a very nice woman, then

I really want a pizza. I'm sick of diets.sad

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 14:10:05

Maybe he should have told his wife what mummy was really like.

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 14:11:58

Eh? They'll still be liable for the funeral though.

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 14:16:06

Poor Kev- all alone again.

He looked really sad didn't he! I was watching but not properly concentrating was filling in insurance form for my doggy who we sadly had to say goodbye to on Friday sad sad sad

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 15:43:14

oh, cinnamon , I'm sorrysad

MsNobodyAgain Tue 28-May-13 19:58:43

cinnamon sorry to here about your dog. x

MsNobodyAgain Tue 28-May-13 20:05:05

Just watched todays.

1) What the hell has Al done with his hair? He looks like he's been attacked by Edward Scissorhands.

2) The mother was a miserable old bat. Ugh

3) Mrs T looked lovely today. Perfect outfit and lovely wiggyness.

I could have done with Mrs T and a good book when I was in hospital. After a couple of days in there one of the nurses handed me a book which had been left on the ward. It was called "5 Days To Die" shock sad grin

Raahh Tue 28-May-13 20:21:50

shock @ the book MsN !!

Thank you!

I might have to go and rewatch it to check out Al's hair, was listening to it on iplayer on my lap too with other window open on top so didn't see a lot!

AnneEyhtMeyer Tue 28-May-13 22:46:40

Not watched yet, but just found TBFE on Twitter and his name is @deaddaveglover! Isn't that brilliant?

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 12:04:23

deaddaveglover- brilliant!grin

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 13:47:27

Hello everyone. Sorry for my absence. I am back to give it another go.

Is that him off Duty Free?

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 13:47:40

Isn't that him out of 'Duty Free'?

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 13:48:24

grin MsN. It must be.

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 13:49:05

grin bored again sparkling?

X-post re the actor.

bellabelly Wed 29-May-13 13:49:05

Whoop! Keith Baron from 'Duty Free' is in today's episode.

bellabelly Wed 29-May-13 13:49:42

oops, cross-posted with everyone grin

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 13:49:53

Prize to bella for getting the name.

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 13:51:03

He's looking a bit rotund.

bellabelly Wed 29-May-13 13:52:04

Thank you kindly. I missed yesterday's, have Zara and whatsit done it yet?

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 13:53:05

Not unless it was so quick I missed it.

MrsReiver Wed 29-May-13 13:55:44

Daniel giving Howard seduction techniques. Vom.

I know he's Keith Baron but not sure I've even heard of duty free!

Not as far as I know, they weren't in yesterdays I don't think confused

bellabelly Wed 29-May-13 14:06:08

Zara acts entirely with her eyebrows, doesn't she?

bellabelly Wed 29-May-13 14:06:56

cinnamon, you are a young whippersnapper then. It was a dreadful classic sitcom from my youth.

bellabelly Wed 29-May-13 14:07:22

Can't think why they don't repeat it...

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 14:08:16

Wiki says it was aired 1984-1986. So I was 14 when it started. Mum used to laugh until she had a coughing fit (it was a comedy, I hasten to add)

32, not that young.

Oh dear looks Like Al is Jas's stalker then, scary!!!!!!

That did make me laugh, poor gobby!

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 14:13:51

Gobby in the skydiving helmet was the highlight of that episode.

bellabelly Wed 29-May-13 14:13:52

Ooh, that's later than I thought - i'd have been 11 or so. Could have sworn it was 1970s. My parents used to laugh and laugh too!

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 15:57:05

I've missed today's.

grin @ Duty Free,the longest 2 week holiday ever !

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 17:27:04

Duty Free was not funny. My friend's Mum thought it was hysterical same as Brush Strokes. hmm

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 18:29:26

OMG-Brush Strokes!

I'm now singing the bloody them tune (wasn't it sung by Dexy's ?)

<wanders off singing 'Because of you' tunelessly....)

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 18:29:38


Now brush strokes I remember smile

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 20:09:03

What was Brush Strokes about? Was he a decorator?

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 20:09:46

What was Brush Strokes about? Was he a decorator?

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:14:55

He was - that was basically the plot. And I think he was trying to get into the pants of a posh woman, who fancied a bit of rough. Or something equally sexist and 80's grin

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 20:17:27

Ooh like The Upper Hand then?

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:28:12

just watching now- why is keith wearing a biggles jacket?

and Mrs T is a formula 1 fan?grin

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:34:31

yy to 'The Upper hand' and '2 Up 2 down' grin

I recently discovered Angela Thorne is Rupert Penry-Jones' mum! grin

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 20:35:53

Faith in the Future with Lynda Bellingham-that was crap. Lynda Bellingham would be good in Doctors.

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:39:13

Lynda would be great- she could be Gobby's long lost twingrin

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 20:40:17

Yes, they are very similar and LB is quite gobby. She could arrive and demand a half share in the inherited house Raahh. Genius!

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:44:15

Yes! mystery of the house will be solved. grin

Of course, Lynda is really annoying on the Isme adverts or whatever it is she does. And Loose Women. I don't watch Loose women

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:45:42

I bet Al has bugged the plant. With a web cam. To spy on Jizz.

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:46:35

Zara's facial expressions in this episode are brilliantgrin

Raahh Wed 29-May-13 20:50:51

grin @ Gobby in her hat!

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:09:44

Watching yesterday's at the minute. Al looks very odd in a suit. It looks like it is just waiting for a stain or two.

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:12:16

Mrs T suits yellow.

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 21:18:38

Gobby in her hat was priceless, as was the superimposed background.

Anne I kind of wished the Rev had seen Mrs T yesterday (saddo that I am).

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:21:39

Oh yes, MsN. I am just watching her holding her cross and looking wistful. He was a fool to lose her (I'm a saddo too).

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:23:20

Ok, onto today's.

Oh my goodness, the bloke from Duty Free has aged.

And yes I agree Al's hair is very odd!!!

I remember the upper hand but not two up two down, perhaps it just depends what my mum was watching at the time smile

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:32:06

How can Jizz afford new furniture? I thought she was broke?

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 21:32:53

cinnamon did you see Al at the end of todays episode? Pulling his hair forward like some guy out of 'Grease'


Lock your door Jas, he's coming to get yoooooouuuuu

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 21:34:00

And next day delivery Anne

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:36:42

Yes, that always costs extra.

Have they conveniently forgotten her money worries (like they do with Jimmi's OCD) or is this leading up to more woe for her? And a way for Al to get closer to her by lending her cash?

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:46:39

Oh I love Karen! And her hat!

I know so now he's obnoxious and very very creepy!!!

I did wonder how she afforded that, the house was cheap as they're let out by other drs at cheap rates to drs to help them out confused

Sparklingbrook Wed 29-May-13 21:49:31

I don't want Al to be creepy. sad

AnneEyhtMeyer Wed 29-May-13 21:50:37

Oh! I can't wait to see Barry tomorrow!

Al is no Danny. He's not even a Kenickie. He needs about twice as much hair (and some charisma) to pull off the hair thing.

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 21:53:31

I don't want to imagine Al lurking in the corner of my bedroom, but I am.

He'd be easy to spot though. I have no wardrobes he could hide in.

I really need to go to bed now. grin

MsNobodyAgain Wed 29-May-13 21:54:46

Ah, Barry. I like him. He makes me laugh.

Won't be watching today as we're off to legoland smile
May catch up tomorrow if you're comments suggest its worthwhile wink

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 06:53:45

Have a fun day, Cinnamon! Hope it isn't as wet down there as it is up here.

You do have to watch today's, though, as it is a Barry episode. You can't miss that.

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 08:48:06

Enjoy your day cinnamon. We are going bowling later but I hope to be back in time for my Doctors fix.

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 13:50:21

The wife is very pretty envy

Barry's here! smile

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 13:54:40

Ohhhhhhh, for a moment there I though Chris was going to smack his head and meet a sudden death.

One can only hope...

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 13:56:51

The man is really odious and ticking every stereotype box.

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 14:14:38

'Twas watchable.

The bloke from 'The Hotel' is in tomorrows episode. He's a bit of a real life Barry.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 14:54:57

Just watching now.

TBFE looking good (although his hair could do with a ruffle).

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 14:56:29


AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 14:59:57

Oh I've missed Barry! It has been too long. Wish they would get rid of 6tl and have him full time.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 15:03:24

Oh TBFE is lovely, isn't he?

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 15:04:59

Love that Barry has a little man-crush on TBFE!

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 15:07:49

Love that she is actually completely fluent!

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 15:09:11

I think today's wig ages Mrs T. Prefer her flirty one.

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 15:18:20

"Hoots a lot, tree trunk legs, drinks like a fish" - love Zara's descriptions!

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 15:20:43

How the hell dis the bloke from "The Hotel" get a part in Doctors? Was Roy Hudd busy?

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 15:26:29

arf @ "was Roy Hudd busy".

I agree about Mrs T's wig today, and she looked tired and old sad. Also bizarrely, her teeth looked too big for her mouth at one point.

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 15:44:37

Missed today, will try to catch-up later.

I fear the flirty wig not be seen again, unless Mrs T gets a new love interestsad. I think we have seen the last of TRev.

grin@ Roy Hudd

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 19:45:37

Just catching up- poor MrsT and all the boxes,although i don't now why people were tripping over themhmm

and who calls the gp's surgery if they think they are in labour? is that normal?

obnoxious husbandhmm
rescue her,TBFE!

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 19:47:31

I still think a Doctor's surgery upstairs,with no evidence of a lift, cannot be legal.

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 19:49:31

grin @ Mim

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 19:52:02

Aww, Ms T and Chris. He's nice, really. Just get rid of his mother.

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 20:02:33

tomorrow's looks wtfgrin

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 20:18:09

I read the Sky preview for tomorrow. Zaniels 3 weeks are up. Definitely another episode not to watch at mums.

toldmywrath Thu 30-May-13 20:26:37

Just caught up with the episodes & this lovely thread. I missed you all whilst I was on me hols.
Yes arf at Roy Hudd being busy, too. smile
One other thing I noticed-Mrs T's name badge when she was a hospital visitor had a photo of her on it & it was the same wig that she was wearing that day (does she coordinate her wigs with the photo badges I wonder?)

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 20:48:52

Oh no, MsN- I don't want to see Zaniel up to stuff.

Raahh Thu 30-May-13 20:49:54

<waves> at told

AnneEyhtMeyer Thu 30-May-13 21:05:40

Welcome home, told. Did you have a good holiday?

MsNobodyAgain Thu 30-May-13 21:12:51

Welcome back told smile

Gosh, you are observant re the badge thing. I will be keeping more of a beady eye out in future.

Bedtime for me. Half term is exhausting!

OodPi Thu 30-May-13 22:06:02

Just caught up on this weeks bloody children want to be entertained this week

MsNobodyAgain Fri 31-May-13 05:24:23

Mine hear the Doctors theme tune and scatter. I have them well bribed trained.

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:47:01

I am torn- tennis or Doctors?

DD2 actually seems to be letting me watch i will make the most of that!

Lethermail?? grin

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 13:48:05

Hello! I'm here too!

I want a Lethermail email address!

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:49:16

Anne - me too!

hmm throwing a sicky for rumpy pumpy

MsNobodyAgain Fri 31-May-13 13:50:04

Stay here Raahh. They have already used the words 'post coital'

<clutches pearls>

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:50:11

I'm sick of Zara's annoying little girl voice. It doesn't suit her.

MsNobodyAgain Fri 31-May-13 13:50:59

Mrs T is looking rough again.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 13:51:02

DD is sat here watching instead of playing with her Lego. I am hoping Zaniel don't get too frisky!

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:52:13

See- it's less embarrassing if the window cleaner catches you at it, than watching Doctors.

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 13:53:11

grin Raahh, too true!

MsNobodyAgain Fri 31-May-13 13:54:00

Make sure you are poised to switch it over Anne. I learnt the hard way that pausing a programme burns the image forever into a poor innocent childs memory.

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:54:05

I recognise the mother...

proof of virginity? selling it online? oh blimey!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 13:55:13

How sad am I? I have just had a look online for Lethermail, just in case they set it up for the purposes of the programme.

I'm just an embarrassment, aren't I? I'm going to be shunned from the thread.

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:55:16

MsN- yes-the embarrassing remote fumble, that just usually ends up drawing more attention to the rutting wild life on the screengrin

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:55:47

But Anne- have you signed up? grin

MsNobodyAgain Fri 31-May-13 13:56:00

grin at you both!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 13:56:10

shock MsN.

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:56:49

I am now sat here saying Rrrrrruttting in the manner of Mrs Tgrin

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 13:57:16

Sadly it doesn't exist, Raahh.

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:57:44


AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 13:59:13

"How rrrrude"

Love Mrs T!

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:59:17

Zara as a pimp?

'Rrrrrrude' grin @Mrs T

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 13:59:30

x-post grin

MsNobodyAgain Fri 31-May-13 13:59:37

Surely Zaniel aren't going to do it where Merlot o'clock occurred?

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 14:00:53

Oh I hadn't thought of that, MsN. Oh that is not aprrroprriate at all, as Mrs T would say.

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 14:01:49

'Rank and file' snobby cow!
(that's what we were called at John lewis, before they decided 'Non-management partner'was less demeaning).

MsNobodyAgain Fri 31-May-13 14:04:38

"Whatever happened to 'over my putrifying corpse'?"


Raahh Fri 31-May-13 14:04:42

'over my putrefying corpse'

very Zara

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 14:05:18

Doctors is comedy gold!

AnneEyhtMeyer Fri 31-May-13 14:06:30

"The Hotel" guy is a crap actor.

Raahh Fri 31-May-13 14:06:39

It's gone a bit 'Pretty Woman'
