Irate Customer: Yo! The medium bucket is supposed to have 8 pieces. This one has only 7.
Queenie: My name is not "Yo", it's "Queenie", and you must have miscounted because I packed that basket myself.

Lost direction!
18 October 2018 | by jpolywog-52354See all my reviews

Just started watching series 8. Switched off after episode 3. What on earth has happened to this once excellent series. Completely nonsensical plot if indeed there is one and very tired acting by a cast which I think has become intolerant of each other. The scriptwriters need to go back to the drawing board and start again. I am hugely disappointed and have become entirely disillusioned. The reset button needs to be pushed. I have awarded a score of 1 out of 10 for purely sentimental reasons.
