J-horror cliches in Yorkshire. Not bad I guess.
Palin is too sprightly to play "80 odd".
what the fuck are you talking about?
I guess Mrs Balonz had other ideas.
Jumpy and cliched? Yeah, but who cares
who are old enough to have jobs.
I think I'd prefer a drama just about the nurse girl intead of all the horror/Palin stuff.
when he clearly isn't is supposed to make you go 'ooooooooooooh' rather than tut about bad casting.
why didn't they just make that the character's age?
'In The Night Garden'?
amongst the most confusing things known to man.
I didn't tut, I just had an impromptu game of "how old do you think he is" with the wife. (71 - I won).
And then another for Julia Sawlaha (46 - I won again)
We didn't do mark addy because she was getting annoyed by then.
the jump scares were hella tacky but other than that thought it was pretty sterling stuff. think the whole thing of him being too sprightly to be 80 might be to do with him not being who he says he is. or something.
I got that now. Don't need any more reminding thanks.
Still struggling with The Missing at the moment as it moves sooooo sloowwwwllyyyyy and the wife is such a shit actress. Need something else to watch.
I liked the shots of Yorkshire looking even more dark and miserable than normal, plus Michael Palin is always good (national treasure hashtag).
