New thread for tonight's episode.

Do you like the decor then? My 'personal' assistant did it.

Sits down on lovely yellow chair.

Nooooo SmallLegs!

Bea Wed 27-Apr-16 19:08:33

Think it might go pat 'n tones way!!

Bea Wed 27-Apr-16 19:10:26

I hope!! I hope!!

Miranda: 'This is a very comfy bed. However did you choose it?'

Justin (sotto voce): 'You don't bounce like Lilian does!'

I wish any appearance in court could be so vague and waffle-y. She gave no dates, no real indication of Henry's parentage ... Nothing about how briefly he's known that evil cow. Silly nonsense.

Bea Wed 27-Apr-16 19:13:27

Oh gawd!!! angry

Bea Wed 27-Apr-16 19:13:48

Blardy hell!!

I doubt Helen has any devastation left in her ...

Bea Wed 27-Apr-16 19:16:16

FFS! I thought this storyline was supposed to be encouraging women to step forward?
This is what happens when you take control! Arrrggh!

HalsallRedux Wed 27-Apr-16 19:16:21

Even Arsula's brief seemed to realise she was a loon...and what was all that sotto voce sniffing and weeping? FFS.

Fink Wed 27-Apr-16 19:16:32

'Never mind us, what about Henry Helen?!'

Never mind Henry and Helen!!
What about US!!??!! shock

Court scenes really aren't suited to 13 minute episodes. The reality is that the hearing would have taken at least half a day and that speeches on each side would have been much more detailed and longer.

But I still find it inherently unlikely that Anna would represent them at that hearing. So far as I know there are few if any crime QCs who are also experts in family law, and vice versa.

I hope by June someone has got Helen to put together the story coherently enough to get Henry back at Bridge Farm.
Has no one stopped to wonder how she was induced to grant parental responsibility?

ElgartheCat Wed 27-Apr-16 19:22:50

I think that we should listen to Victoria Wood's episodes instead. Sheer brilliance.

"Please don't make any more jokes, Ruth, or I might have to kill you"

ElgartheCat Wed 27-Apr-16 19:23:46

"Don't correct me Ruth. I'd hate to see David crying at your funeral" - Jill

BertrandRussell Wed 27-Apr-16 19:24:52

All the legal opinion online is that the only outcome is that Henry would go to Rob. He has parental responsibility and is a completely innocent man. If we didn't know the backstory, we would all be outraged if a court gave a child to the grandparents over the person with parental responsibility.......

Fink Wed 27-Apr-16 19:25:00

I really hope AT is a better barrister than came across in that episode. sad

ElgartheCat Wed 27-Apr-16 19:26:45

When Ruth thanks Jill for looking after Ben....

Ruth - Shall I untie him from the mangle?
Jill - If you'd like to, but it hasn't been the full three hours."

Place marking. Ear plugs in. It sound like it isn't getting any lighter for anyone.
