I cried at first episode
14 July 2019 | by Shymaa0000See all my reviews

I heard so many tales about widowers getting over the "devastation" of losing their wives amazingly fast. tale as old as time, first time I've seen it in action thought. i bet David Tennant made every female cry watching him mourn Rita then second episode i was annoyed by how fast Dave got over Rita but as i said its probably one of the most truthful aspects of the story.
