Watched 'The 12 days of Christine' last night and found it very moving. I was a bit of a downer yesterday, for some reason Ray was at the forefront of my thoughts all day. Watched the show and with 'Con te partiro' playing throughout the episode, a song Ray chose for and I had played at her funeral service and for the first time since a few weeks after her passing I cried myself to sleep.

That Christine episode is all kinds of brilliant.

And how long has Sheridan Smith been good?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Just now working our way through Season 2.  Such a treat to not know how each episode will play out: comedy, horror, drama, mystery... The twists (or perhaps more properly 'resolutions') themselves are often predictable, but this is offset by being totally ignorant of what kind of tale you're watching until you're 5 or 10 minutes in, and then by the sheer pleasure of watching the story play out.  Even little things like waiting right to the end  (in vain) for Pemberton to appear in Season 1's The Harrowing and reverse the horror conceit with some comedy twist was exquisite...

Watched 12 Days of Christine on Saturday, and it had us both dabbing at the eyes and generally going to bed upset, and that's without anything like Flippo's excuse.  Despite being a fairly obvious setup it's very powerful and completely gripping stuff, and Sheridan Smith is even better than she was in the Harry Hill Movie (I kid, she's a bit of a revelation after vanilla TV roles for years). 

Does anyone else make these sorts of things at this level of invention and wit?

She's been pretty highly acclaimed since hitting the theatres around 2011.
