[Talking about Claire, who is dying at Andy and Elaine's house]
I would have looked after her.
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.

There have been mixed reviews about Walk Away and I stumble, but I have to say that I enjoyed it.
The first part was a bit fast paced, moving the story along too quickly, and there was no chemistry between Claire and Andy. But, the concluding part made up for all of that! It was a heartbreaking story and you end up having sympathy for all the characters. I had tears strolling down my face at the end. There are no bad guys in this, and thats what makes it different to other dramas... Fantastic acting all round, especially the two leading ladies; Tamzin Outhwaite and Julie Graham, when they were together. Kate Bush's song 'This Woman's Work' was a good touch too, it fit in perfectly with Claire's situation.
It was a nice dedication to Tamzin's younger cousin, James Balwdin, who passed away with Cancer earlier in the year.
