Been really gripped by this - watched all 3 episodes yesterday on 4OD - but am baffled in episode 2 as to when Jenny could have nicked her dates wallet? Hope I'm not being totally dense and it's really obvious...!

After she caught hi min the Loo she was about to leave then spotted it on the table.

Hi i watched the first two but wasnt really taken , not sure why, i liked Will Mellor but found his date obnoxious and stereotyped but i guess that was the point. In second I am not sure why Sheridan Smith hung around for so long as her date was vile, loved it when she skipped off down the Tube with his wallet ...she got her revenge whilst on the way out when hewas doing the biz in the loo. Think she was going to run out but when she saw wallet too good an opportunity to miss. Great acting by her. I will watch another but was worried they might be samey.

Ah thanks, must have missed that bit somehow then! I know, I did wonder why she hung around as he was just awful, and yes, that Celeste/Mia character is pretty hard to watch! Will Mellor was very good though, as was Sheridan Smith.

Yes, really enjoying it so far and meant to ask if anyone was watching last week!

I must say it's very nice to have a decent drama that only last 30 minutes, too. Most serial dramas require such an investment of time: good to have something that just 'rounds off' the evening nicely.

Am loving Dates. It's been a while since I was last gripped by a decent drama. Brilliant writing and acting.

The Celeste/Mia character revealed a lot more in the 3rd episode.

C4 website has dating profiles for each of the characters. Looking forward to tonight's episode smile

Was the elastic band the Sheridan Smith character wore to remind her not to nick things?

MrsBert - very true - I cant concentrate on anything longer than 30 mins these days it seems!

I agree Rindercella.

Could well have been holly - would make sense.

Did everyone watch it last night? I didn't, so looking forward to catching up.

I love Will Mellor. I'm enjoying them

Just seen a trailer for tonight's show, must remember to watch. Took me a while last week to realise that the doctor was Ben Chaplin from Game On.

hardbeingme Wed 19-Jun-13 20:56:16

ben chaplin looked really old, took me ages to place him. but then i probably don't look like i did when game on was on either...

the girl playing mia is charlie chaplins granddaughter, took me ages to place her too and i'd only caught up with game of thrones the day before!

may be loosing it in old age...

Ooh I wanted to watch this but have missed out sofar.

Which day and channel please, I can hopefully find it On Demand

JiltedJohnsJulie Wed 19-Jun-13 20:59:02

hard that is exactly the thought that occurred to me, and probably why I didn't comment on Ben Chaplins wrinkles smile

MrsBucketxx Wed 19-Jun-13 21:06:42

has anyone got a link for the ch4 page?

I like it but I think its made to make you feel uncomfortable.

PoppyWearer Wed 19-Jun-13 21:16:10

I was completely shocked at Ben Chaplin! Couldn't place him at all. Used to adore him.

hardbeingme Wed 19-Jun-13 21:33:06

am sure those wrinkles must be painted on <clutches olay> i googled him hes 44 and has some lovely head shots... mmmm

JiltedJohnsJulie Wed 19-Jun-13 21:37:01

Now I need to go and google but not blue waffle, am resisting that one

Just watched the first one & loathed the Mia character.

She's the spit of her Mum, isn't she?

AmIthatSpringy Sat 22-Jun-13 20:26:24

Ben Chaplin - I watched this with the vague notion that I knew him from somewhere. Can't believe how the years have flown by.

I love Will Mellor too. Not sure why he went round to Mia's. I was disappointed in his character for that

diddl Sat 22-Jun-13 21:35:07

Trying to watch second ep & can't get 4OD to worksad

whatkungfuthat Sun 23-Jun-13 17:25:51

Glad I found this thread, I've caught up with them now. YY to the poster who said they are probably supposed to make you uncomfortable, I find that the first ten minutes are the worst grin

diddl Sun 23-Jun-13 17:47:46

Well I've just watched the second & third.

Don't think I'll bother any more.

The third was ridiculous.

Taking Mia to a hospital hmm

Had hoped he'd just tell her to fuck off.

Sleepyhoglet Mon 24-Jun-13 18:19:56

I love them!

mamapants Sat 29-Jun-13 09:45:19

I actually like Mia, think I'm the only one. Wouldn't want to date her but very watchable character.
Really like how the series works.
Like the doctor too
