    English local journalist with a bit of BBC recognition, George Makin, dead just a few weeks after announcing his illness:

    Four days after his first vaccination shot.

     

    It actually says that he received his diagnosis four days after receiving his first coronavirus vaccination.  Not that he died four days after it.

    I did that too and agree very good - my favourite was crazy night out at start of second series. I thought the third series was the weakest which I think was when Sharon Horgan was no longer writing, but still good.

     

    Oh, I don't know - it had one of my favourite lines which was Anne's response when Amanda said "You used to work in Gregg's, didn't you?"  :lol: and then the way she barely reacted.

    (No spoilers!)

     

    Amazing to think that Anna Maxwell Martin was being Patricia Carmichael in Line of Duty and Julia in Motherland at the same time.  So versatile.


  3. I binged all three series of 'Motherland' recently. 

     

    It's a sitcom about school gates parents - middle class North London Mumsnet types, so I didn't think it would be for me, but it's very funny.

    The children are just background accessories, it's all about the adults.

    Give it a go, but start at the beginning because the character development is part of the humour.  Great writing and great cast.

    BBC iPlayer or Netflix.

    Watched Season 1 of Mosquito Coast on netflix.

    It's a family on the run drama pursued by both the police and assorted baddies.

    Frustratingly it is never made clear exactly what they are supposed to have done and why they are on the run but you are supposed to buy into the family and their situation nevertheless.

    I didn't really, don't know when season 2 is due out but I'm not sure I can be bothered to watch any more of it without knowing exactly what s going on.

    Not recommended.
