‘I’ve always wanted to make sure people are okay, ever since I was a little girl.’
‘If the character is really well-rounded, and it’s a really strong character, and if the writing is just fantastic, that’s the thing that will hook me in, certainly.’
‘I like being a mother.’
‘I’m quite a good listener, and I’m good at looking after people.’
‘I sometimes don’t wash my hair for two weeks. That’s pretty disgusting. It’s short, so sometimes it’s easier to just wet it.’
‘If you get a script and it’s really well written, that’s always exciting.’
Today I want to recommend a TV series. After You’ve Gone was a BBC Sitcom that aired in 2007 and 2008 in the length of 3 series of 7 – 8 episodes. I loved this series when it was on TV and I was gutted when it got cancelled so I recently bought the DVDs. It’s comic quality paired with great actors; Nicholas Lyndhurst (Only Fools and Horses, Goodnight Sweetheart), Celia Imrie (Bridget Jones Diary, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace), Dani Harmer (Tracy Beaker, Dani’s House), Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, Mr Selfridge) and Ryan Sampson (The Things I haven’t Told You, Doctor Who) to name a few, creates a really simple yet clever show that provides light entertainment. It is the type of show where you can get attached to the characters while leaving it on in the background as each new episode is a new story rather than a continuous arc.
