Derek is a fictional character I know but how lovely is he. !

I'm taping it and very hormonal, shall I wait and watch it tomorrow when I won't be 3 glasses of wine down?

SingingSands Wed 06-Mar-13 22:39:36

No, watch it tonight and indulge! Lovely ending.

Bluelightsandsirens Wed 06-Mar-13 22:52:19

Be a love and pass the tissues

Bluelightsandsirens Wed 06-Mar-13 23:02:28

Oh Christ sad

I knew I shouldn't have watched it tonight smile

I went from laughing with him singing along with the monkey on the pig to crying with him when he said "I've got a dad!" at the end. grin

I cried. I love this but amazingly I am seemingly the only one on my FB to do so. I put how much I loved last nights episode and got nothing but how shit it is in reply. sad

I remember on here when it first came on, everyone had a go at Ricky Gervais for taking the piss out of those with SN...why the sea change?

I liked it from the off...but on here there were lots saying it was wrong.

It's message is lovely.

I haven't dared watch it since the pilot, because I cried buckets and actually had to leave the room (the bit where the lady died and Derek went in and held her hand). I can't remember the last time something on tv got to me as much. I can't even talk about it without getting choked up.

I have sky plused this series but have been feeling a bit down and not up to watching it. I'm being silly, aren't I?

Watch it Science. Ok there are sad bits but mainly its very heartwarming. The character of Kev is astounding. I think Pilko is great too. I worked with Kerry Godliman years ago and she is such a lovely person. I was thrilled to see her on this.

YY mrs mushroom. I don't think anyone that has actually watched it could possibly find it offensive. It is beautifully written and all of the messages it sends out are positive IMHO. I haven't watched all of the last episode as I was out last night. I tried watching it this morning getting ready for work but had to turn it off as it was making my newly-applied make up run!

I loved the pilot episode and the series...thank goodness we will get a series 2!

What a brilliant end and luckily I have a few FB who love it also.
