Committed for life - all ten weeks of it? You know what? You haven't answered my question: are you going to the funeral. Because no matter what happens, I'm gonna be there. No matter how horrible it is.

don't normally watch tearjerkers much, but as this was penned by the Spooks team I thought I would give it a go, and I am glad I did.
It was thought provoking, sometimes sad, sometimes funny and very moving...choking back tears at times! If you get a chance, watch it, as it was very well done indeed.
