Having just sat through 3 hours of Losing Gemma, I am pretty close to losing the will to live. To say this sorry piece of Drama was bad would be like saying St Christopher liked a trip or two. Where do you start, let's begin at the script or should I say where did a script begin. quite simply the worst piece of writing I have ever encountered .The writers must have had at least 95% of there Brain cells removed before the first word had been written. The actors next, well you know the how you feel when you relieve the most embarrassing moment in your life, how you inwardly cringe when you remember every moment of that nightmare! Well this is how the actors will feel when they have to do interviews in the future and probably will pray to God they can ask there agents to leave it off their C.V. when going for new jobs. I could go on, but I will sum up "Losing Gemma" by saying that this drama should be a pre-requisite in all future terrorist interrogations, Just threaten them with having to sit through this will I am sure have those prisoners spilling there guts before the TV is turned on.
