Tremendous!
25 April 2017 | by martin-interculturalSee all my reviews

Rebecca Gethings's performance in this episode is one of those TV gems that will stay with you for the rest of your life. So utterly dysfunctional and shocking, sick even in many ways, and yet 100% believable; in fact, almost familiar. Pitch- perfect, tremendously nuanced acting. In truth, given the character's troubled existence as a showbiz woman forced into stunted childhood by overbearing parents, with disturbingly incestuous hints thrown in as well, this part demanded nothing less. And to make all THAT laugh-out- loud funny... Much respect to the actress, the creators and the director.
