A good old mix of funny and sad.
2 February 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Aveline is back home now that her wedding to Oswald is over, Nellie confronts Joey with the note, it leads him back to Roxy. Meanwhile Nellie gets talking to a man in the park, and Aveline has a fashion show.

A slightly more upbeat episode than we've had before, and finally a bit of joy for Nellie, is romance in the air?

Poor Aveline, you could easily laugh at her mishaps, but that would be too easy, she's somewhat of a tragic figure, bless her when her skirt falls down, she deserved a bit of love.

Vegetarianism and veganism is now more commonplace in 2020 than it was in 1988, fair play to the writers for making it an important part of the episode. 8/10
