Finished the other two episodes

Spoiler:

I knew it was coming because I'm an idiot who likes to read spoilers before I watch TV shows and films... but whew that was a heavy watch.

I am now in a predicament where I feel like if I ever saw Keeley Hawes I would smack her in the face

Episode four was done a little better IMO... the fifth had a lot of loose ends to tie up, whereas 4 was all about Ritchie going home, getting the diagnosis, finally owning up to his behaviour and shame, reliving his past and going through the stages of grief (that scene where he breaks down in that boy's car, and then gets out and performs some ballet moves in the headlights... absolutely stunning).

And then obviously the fifth episode was inevitable... I've already said in here about how heartbreaking and difficult it was for families of the deceased to come to terms with, but even small details like Ritchie's sister crying with Roscoe & Jill in the B&B just... really well done. And the final scenes with Jill just stopping in on lonely strangers because she never got to say goodbye to Ritchie... yeah that ruined me lol.

I need to read up on Jill herself... she was based on this woman (who makes a cameo herself, as 'Jill's mum' in the final two episodes): https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-55937944 She seems like an absolute hero.

Keeley Hawes is such a versatile actress, she never typecasts herself

she was fantastic in Finding Alice as the grieving widow

In Honour playing the real life Sergeant who brought the family to justice

The Home Secretary in the Bodyguard

Line of Duty

I could go on, so no violence for a wonderful actress unlike Jimmy Nesbitt who seems to play the same character in everything he is in

Yeah she looks great in that upcoming film about Roald Dahl with whatshisname from Downton Abbey, too. Plus there was Ashes to Ashes, of course.

...that you want to smack Keeley in the face, Shaun...shows what a terrific actress she is and how excellently she portrayed Richie’s mum...it really is an award winning performance......Keeley is such the lady of the moment in terms of the roles she’s getting and how in demand she is...she’s always been a favourite for me...so it’s lovely to see her get the recognition she deserves......

...I started to read up on Jill Nalder while I was watching it also...and yeah, what an amazing and inspirational lady and at a time when so many needed that caring and support in the LGBT community......

oh tbh it's not really a spoiler as you could see it coming if you know what I mean...there is a shock in it though that you don't see coming at all so I would recommend

...yeah, I loved it.....not just Keeley but everything about it...(...that house, though ...would have driven me crazy, I really did feel her pain at sitting there in the dark because she couldn’t open the curtains or do the most simple things and how disabled she felt...I also loved the Durrells and especially her character of Louisa...it was my guilty pleasure watch when it was airing ...but I think the timing was perfect for it to finish as well...she’s just a delightful actress and person...plus, I saw her in an interview once and she was wearing a dress that I also have so that made me fall more in love with her......

Yeah you could kinda see that unfolding though, apart from the bit where his friends don't get to see him before he dies

btw you should watch the Sopranos, I know you said the end was spoiled for you but it is a great watch!
