The latest Sarah Lancashire drama starts tonight, from the writer of Kirri and National Treasure. Anyone else planning to watch?

I assumed her husband (that she can’t locate) would be dead having tried to be a hero but was that him sat on his bed watching the tv?

It’s unfortunate that they’re replaying the clip where SL says “I know you” to the site owner as her accent is especially bad in that bit.

unique1986 Thu 24-Oct-19 21:40:13

Not quite sure how she survived and the man.

And wouldn’t they be taken to a major trauma centre. I may be biased as I know where those scenes were filmed and County General it ain’t grin

JellyfishAndShells Thu 24-Oct-19 21:40:54

I thought 5 mins in that it was either going to be great and gripping or dire.

Looking like dire atm sad

I luffs Sarah but I’m struggling

Is there any better way to watch anything, Noeuf? It's one of life's small pleasures.

ASmallMovie Thu 24-Oct-19 21:41:45

It’s shit. Unrealistically lovey-dovey couples at the start. And watching people grieving isn’t good drama.

Sally Wainwright is a much much more talented writer of women in particular and drama generally.

OrangeTwirlGate Thu 24-Oct-19 21:41:52

That woman who I assume found out her daughter died and walked off just casually saying ‘she’s dead’

Erm wtf?

I’d be screaming on the floor in a heap.

BoF happy days when something lends itself to ridicule 😂

Ooh, Steve Baldini, mean cop and the PM of Denmark.

Bedsheets4knickers Thu 24-Oct-19 21:43:41

Is she having an affair ?

RingtheBells Thu 24-Oct-19 21:46:16

I’m enjoying it more than some of the other crap I’ve tried to watch recently like the Dublin Murders and that Japanese series which I think is on at the same time as this.

Bedsheets4knickers Thu 24-Oct-19 21:46:53

Oh no she isn't , to many wats app groups going on

unique1986 Thu 24-Oct-19 21:47:12

Horrible kitchen.

catmg Thu 24-Oct-19 21:47:13

I'm predicting a town backlash when it turns out that Sarah Lancashire's daughter only survived because the random guy in a 'walk' who rescued her was actually the culprit, responsible for blowing up the building.

WellTidy Thu 24-Oct-19 21:47:19

ASmall it isn’t a Sally Wainwright script. I loved her writing in Happy Valley.

OrangeTwirlGate Thu 24-Oct-19 21:48:15

This is just getting weird now

colouringinpro Thu 24-Oct-19 21:48:26

SavageBeauty73 Thu 24-Oct-19 21:48:55

Wtf? Domestic violence now. I'd have poured the kettle over him

EleanorReally Thu 24-Oct-19 21:49:11

Omg

BitOfFun Thu 24-Oct-19 21:49:13

Well that seems uncalled for shock

EleanorReally Thu 24-Oct-19 21:49:30

Bit weird
