To think that if this daft woman on the telly could 'feel' that she was standing on Richard III's grave...

Then they should have just dug under her feet?

I'd have dropped her in the hole once I'd got him out

Yeah but turns out she was right so she has the last laugh!

You are being completely unreasonable!

She had a passion for the subject and researched it with a rare obsession. She visited the car park, yes, and got a "feeling" which she pursued relentlessly for three years. She backed up her feelings with facts and then managed to get so many institutions on board and achieved something heroic in her efforts.

What she has achieved is historic and owes to her years of dedication.

No offence, but what have you done to compare to that?

She should be greatly admired. Good grief!

IAmLouisWalsh Mon 04-Feb-13 21:24:40

Ah, I know all that. But she is getting on my tits grin

Hey, you. I am Louis Walsh. Really...grin

Uppatreecuppatea Mon 04-Feb-13 21:27:13

Ok - fair enough!
Can't argue with someone getting on yr tits!

LessMissAbs Mon 04-Feb-13 21:27:24

YANBU. The reactions are all a bit fake.

SuzysZoo Mon 04-Feb-13 21:43:40

It's great but it is a lot like a Victoria Wood spoof - especially the bit about the flag!

RedPencils Mon 04-Feb-13 21:46:27

I thought she was a bit of a crackpot, but she was completely right.

IAmLouisWalsh Mon 04-Feb-13 21:46:53

YY suzyszoo. Totally Victoria Wood!

What she didn't tell you she had had "the feeling she was standing etc" 20 times in 20 different places before...

SauvignonBlanche Mon 04-Feb-13 21:57:58

She's getting on my tits too.

RustyBear Mon 04-Feb-13 22:02:41

But she was also totally convinced he had no deformity...

threestepsforward Mon 04-Feb-13 22:04:47

mine too!
she is a drama llama

Loving the programme though, am gripped...

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 04-Feb-13 22:05:24

Oh, that flag bit! I loved that it was all nylon-y and shiny.

Quelle surprise that she's a screenwriter. Bloody dram llama. Agree that there will have been 20 spots she's stood on, where she knew the bones lay.

That said - fair play!

I love the reaction of the female scientist (the young one with glasses). She is really trying to keep her face straight but you can tell she thinks the Richard society women is nuts!

Enfyshedd Mon 04-Feb-13 22:06:14

All of the society members that were Skyped were convinced he had no deformity as well.

IAmLouisWalsh Mon 04-Feb-13 22:07:39

DH has just said 'for god's sake, don't leave her on her own with those bones!' grin

threestepsforward Mon 04-Feb-13 22:08:34

Ha ha yy to the spoof comment!

The bit where she leaves the room and they're all speechless and trying not to laugh, straight out of a scene like the Office!

SuzysZoo Mon 04-Feb-13 22:08:44

PML at the bit where she has just seen the skeleton! Soooo funny.

MN044 Mon 04-Feb-13 22:09:51

It's like she's spent so long romanticising the whole thing, she just cannot deal with the reality of it. Very uncomfortable viewing actually. A real shame as well, this should be a great programme and I'm just distracted by Stupid Death in his jumper and a loony woman in denial. I can't wait for a proper documentary on it.

JamieandtheMagicTorch Mon 04-Feb-13 22:11:40

Some of the best people are strangely obsessive.

JamieandtheMagicTorch Mon 04-Feb-13 22:12:37

KathynReichs should come and have a look at the bones. That osteologist has no romance in her soul
