Wow I don't know if I managed to breathe very much during the first programme in the series of Trust Me. I was exhausted afterwards, how is she going to get out of that? I knew she would end up receiving a bit of resuscitation from that other Doctor, he's not gonna be pleased. when he finds out or maybe he'll feel sorry for her. It's good if you haven't seen it and this will be Jodie Whittaker's last drama before she gets the keys to the Tardis on Christmas Day. I think she is brilliant in this, it was just so gripping as you watch her deal with a bit of controversy in her nursing role leading to her being suspended. She then takes on someone else's identity and starts a job in Edinburgh as a Doctor in A&E. Everytime a patient came in I was constantly wondering how she was going to deal with them and whether someone would catch her out. I think she will get caught eventually after she sinks even deeper in trouble but I'm looking forward to the next one to see how it works out. Great acting and I'm glad people are getting to see a preview of her, yes maybe in a different role but you get an idea if you were not familiar with her work previously.
I also watched Diana: In Her Own Words which was an interesting but slightly sad one off documentary about Diana talking quite frankly about her life with her speech consultant. It's an honest account of her life and not only was it her who lost faith in the Royal establishment but the staff whom had worked around them too. I think she bloomed when she finally split from Charles and looked happier but I just wish she had been able to live and see a bit more of life. Maybe they should never have married, it did all happen very quickly but I think she was on this planet for a reason and anyway we would never have seen her gorgeous boys whom are an absolute credit to her. For me? I don't know if she was was ever allowed to enjoy her life, too many accounts of situations that are just not right. Funny now how Charles and Camilla have managed to now get married and make a life. I'm glad they are happy now, everyone should have their chance at happiness but so much hurt along the way and it's as if they had to get rid of certain obstacles first. She wasn't an obstacle to us the public, we just wanted her to be happy too but to some I feel she was an inconvenience. Yep strong thoughts but that's what definitely comes over in this programme. I can see why people didn't want it aired, maybe for the sake of her boys which is sad for them to see but it is worth a watch even if it's to have you own view.
We said goodbye to Poldark for another series. It's been a good one, very dramatic but what is Demelza doing? Well I think I know what she was doing but I can feel a million ladies wondering why when she's got the ultimate of sex gods in Ross. Hugh Armitage just comes in and flashes his sultry eyes at her and she's rolling in the grass with him. He looks as if he could join One Direction that Hugh, he is boyband material isn't he? Oh Demelza, it will end in tears or lets hope it doesn't end in a 'mini hugh', there's enough of that going around. It will be interesting when it returns to see what havoc will be let loose over the lovely British countryside.
I did watch some of the new Netflix series 'Atypical' about a teenager with Autism and because of the subject I will leave a review about this for my next Autism Support Saturday. I still have two more programmes to watch in the series and would like to review the whole lot so catch that next Saturday.
