    Episode Nine... continued Then there’s Anna’s wish that both her fathers could walk her down the aisle. “It’s a lovely thought”, smiles Carolyn before necessarily dismissing it. George still has no idea that Anna knows, and this would certainly complicate the day. Then Gino - who seems...

    "Some obligations can't be passed on": Watching A Place To Call Home

    SeriesTwo Episode Nine APH's first wedding has proved to be a satisfying and heartwarming affair. Many milestones of the episode feel very much like the stuff of season finales. Where to start: Sarah’s return to inverness, with her husband René, has been beautiful. Six weeks have elapsed...

    TV Top Ten BritComs of the 80s and 90s

    It feels wrong not including Terry and June, which ran almost all of its episodes through the Eighties. But it began a month before 1980 began. Only When I Laugh was excluded for the same reason. This is what's left: 1. Ever Decreasing Circles 2. dinnerladies 3. Keeping Up Appearances 4...

    "Some obligations can't be passed on": Watching A Place To Call Home

    Episodes Seven and Eight... continued Sarah’s return to Paris has brought a degree of noir into the series. The cinematography is different in these scenes. There are a lot of shadows and muted colours. It looks quite art house. In-keeping with this is angst and pain. It’s not a happy time...

    "Some obligations can't be passed on": Watching A Place To Call Home

    Episodes Seven and Eight... continued Elizabeth’s response to the situation has been fascinating. From the moment we saw her reaction to the news, it’s clear that she was very shaken indeed. She was seen to hate breaking the news to Sarah and to George. Just as Patricia Hamilton would hit...

    Episodes Seven and Eight... continued Regina’s Parisian research has borne some pretty wild fruit, in the form of an almost literal ghost from Sarah’s past. Elizabeth reluctantly prepares to tell George. He then comes to Sarah at the hospital: In many ways it’s the most outlandish storyline...

    "Some obligations can't be passed on": Watching A Place To Call Home

    Season Two Episodes Seven and Eight As with Season One, there is a definite sense of storylines snowballing as the season goes along. It’s not how much is going on that alerts me to this - there’s always a lot of storyline going on - but the speed with which these things happen. It’s great...

    How intriguing. My brow is furrowing with concern as I watch you walk away. And I feel a sepia freeze frame coming on.

    Yes - I think you might be right (although Patricia might have had other ideas... ;) ).

    Glad to see you here, Alexis. It's pretty unanimous then. At the time I didn't think I'd get past it at all. I'm so grateful it was just that one episode, as I had this fear that it was going to run on and on, and I thought the entire season might be ruined. Thankfully, Season Two so far has...

    Sons & Daughters Top Ten - The Couples

    1. Barbara and Gordon Mutual respect paired with endless outside interference. Barbara got to flare her nostrils magnificently as she watched Patricia treat Gordon shabbily and manipulate him. Then there was Barbara’s head thingy. And all before they even got together. It got worse once the vows...

    "Some obligations can't be passed on": Watching A Place To Call Home

    I think it might well have been. Obviously there were a number of big spoilers in that scene, but there's also a great deal of foreshadowing. One detail in particular springs to mind which at the time I didn't pay very much attention to: Olivia's granddaughter having blonde hair. I'd assumed it...

    "Some obligations can't be passed on": Watching A Place To Call Home

    Ha ha. And we're less than a third of the way through the series. Wait until they run out of story. It's pretty brutal, isn't it? It's made me understand that scene where Jack fought flashbacks to shake the hand of the Japanese businessman, and then promptly fell off the wagon. It's still...
