But Steve Coogan playing himself and STILL coming across as Alan Partridge.
the Daily Mail has LITERALLY NO SHAME
Just don't review it at all if it's uncomfortable you awful awful people.
Journalistic ......im struggling for a word here......crapiness and emptiness of reporting integrity........but I'll stick to a non dramatic criticism of the mail reporting on the program.........
The mail says - "The script assumed that viewers would remember the high-profile Yeates murder case, and realise the crime was actually committed by Joanna's neighbour, Dutch engineer Vincent Tabak."
This is bollocks, as I DO NOT remember the high-profile murder case (probaby cos i do not 'take' a newspaper) and yet the TV drama unfolded exceedingly well for me.........we must assume that the critic of this is just trying to downplay the drama's worth as it ultimately reveals his own papers misdemaenors......and he has to revert to subtle non central attacks as the central aspect is indisputable (the mail had to own up to being wrong)
hub of the issues, but I mention it to show how they also slip in sly lies, as they know they cannot directly attack the programs intent.
mainly cos I've met Vincent Tabak.
Didn't peg him a potential killer.
I apparently sold him a pair of glasses in the opticians I was working part time in.
His mum and possibly his sister (younger woman anyway) came in after he got arrested to buy him another pair.
We looked up his details to see who had done his test and it turned out I had dispensed the glasses for his initial appointment.
reminded me a bit of Paul Foot
joanna yeates' body was discovered & we'd have driven along there on xmas day as well
the murder was all over the local press at the time, horrible stuff
