it’s a hard watch and I bet anyone connected to the Nhs won’t be impressed with the message it’s putting out.
Difficult watch, as you say, but I think they will have researched care home experiences carefully. I was saying to my wife that they couldn't have aired this pre-vaccine, as it would have caused panic/outrage.

Was a tough but good watch, great acting again by Comer and Graham

Not sure about the timing of it though, we are still in a pandemic. If anything it will hopefully make those in the minority aware this shit isn't a joke (even after 18 months!) and to be kind to everyone as we have all struggled in some way, shape or form

Just watched it, really good. Tbh care workers are the forgotten heroes of the pandemic. Lots of freebies for NHS staff, but most care workers really low paid are forgotten and at times like this are so valuable.

A few solid actors and actresses in it, but l think Stephen Graham was particularly fantastic again - so many diverse and great roles he's played. I'm not a massive fan of luvvies or actors at all really, but he's one of the best imo.

Graham just gets better and better.
It seems we're lucky to have him. My missus was reading an article the other day about his troubled youth. Seems he attempted to end it all, but somehow the rope gave way. Thank God.
I guess that kind of thing shapes the rest of your life somewhat.

South Leics...unfortunately
He’s a fantastic actor… just emerces himself in the role and is just so believable. Strangely I’m told he’s not massively popular in Liverpool…although only have the Mrs telling me these things
