Ooh thanks. Just set it to record now so I don't forget.

I was just about to cancel my TV licence but after seeing this and the reviews for guilt I'll hold off until next year.

Thanks for the heads up.

Looks good. Older woman. Young man

Gold digger or in love

Looking forward to this.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 12-Nov-19 20:08:21

Starts in less then an hour

Julian Ormond can't be 60, surely? I remember her from her brief mid-90s heyday, she was so beautiful.

southeastdweller Tue 12-Nov-19 21:08:06

She's 54 irl.

2Rebecca Tue 12-Nov-19 21:11:53

That's ridiculous. There are actresses nearer 60 who can do it. She looks mid 50s too

Oblomov19 Tue 12-Nov-19 21:14:41

Saw it. Looks good. Can't wait!

I must have been on MN too much, cos I keep thinking this ought to be called Cocklodger.

I think Julia Ormond is just about believable as 60, albeit well-preserved. She obviously hasn't had any work done and you can see that she has fine lines. She is still gorgeous!

I'm watching now. I hope Benjamin does turn out to be genuine and like her for who she is, but from a drama point of view that seems unlikely...

Ouchmyleg Tue 12-Nov-19 21:31:17

Enjoying so far!

Ouchmyleg Tue 12-Nov-19 21:33:37

I take it she’s footing the bill for all of this?

Span1elsRock Tue 12-Nov-19 21:33:41

I'm enjoying it, but struggling to believe she's 60 tbh.

She's amazingly attractive, I loved her in First Knight, one of my favourite films.

Julia McKenzie is a great actress but too young to play that character.

FLOrenze Tue 12-Nov-19 21:37:33

I think if he was a goody he would not have let her buy him the watch.

Ouchmyleg Tue 12-Nov-19 21:39:03

The older brother barely moved his mouth when he speaks

QueenOfTheAndals Tue 12-Nov-19 21:42:23

Son #1 is... odd.

QueenOfTheAndals Tue 12-Nov-19 21:42:57

And what were those flashbacks about?

nokidshere Tue 12-Nov-19 21:44:34

@southeastdweller why? She's about to turn 79 irl

I'm 59 and my mum is 77

Janaih Tue 12-Nov-19 21:45:55

this is drawing me in. may have shouted "red flags!" at the telly once or twice.

FLOrenze Tue 12-Nov-19 21:48:42

Are the flashbacks indicating that the husband was violent.?

Janaih Tue 12-Nov-19 21:53:58

young son needs a punch in the face angry

MissLadyM Tue 12-Nov-19 21:55:35

She easily looks 60 I think. She's got terrible smokers lines around her mouth. Her lovely hair makes her more youthful. Julia MC is far too young to play her mum though.

I'm a bit behind but my instinct is that he's A wrong 'un. Apart from her, everyone is so irritating!

QueenOfTheAndals Tue 12-Nov-19 21:58:52

I'm trying to figure out if they've aged her up with makeup or not.
